It is perfectly alright if you have not heard of Faith Wireless -- after all, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) has recently launched its mobile service just this week. And suggested by its name, the carrier does have a spiritual bent to it -- it will be giving a tenth of each of its customer’s payments to a church selected by the customer himself.
According to Ian Durant, the president and co-founder of Faith Wireless, the MVNO was created in order to help churches become sustainable, as well as support them in their community outreach and mission efforts. The fact of the matter is: many churches today are in danger of folding, primarily because of financial problems.
This is where Faith Wireless lends a helping hand. The MVNO’s wireless plans range in pricing from $20 (for the basic Helpful plan) to $56 (for the Blessed plan, which comes with unlimited voice calls and text messaging, as well as 7 gigabytes of data). Each of the mobile operator’s plans come with no contracts.
As an MVNO, Faith Wireless leases network capacity from major US wireless carrier Sprint. As such, only CDMA mobile devices will work on Faith. Customers, however, are free to bring their own CDMA compatible handsets, or just purchase them by way of the MVNO’s official website. But take note -- even though it is not mentioned in its site, Faith’s devices are pre-owned.
Compared to other MVNO providers, Faith Wireless’ plans do look a little bit pricier than others. For instance, plans offered by operators such as TPO, Pix Wireless, and Twigby are more affordable than Faith’s $20 Helpful plan (with a thousand minutes of voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and a hundred megabytes of data). Still, if customers do not mind that the extra money they pay will be going to a church of their own choosing, then they should not have any problem with availing of any of Faith’s plans.
Here is the full list of Faith Wireless’ options:
Helpful Plan ($20 a month) -- Offering 1,000 minutes of voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and 100 megabytes of data
Devoted Plan ($36 a month) -- Offering unlimited minutes of voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and 2 gigabytes of data
Righteous Plan ($41 a month) -- Offering unlimited minutes of voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and 3 gigabytes of data
Virtuous Plan ($46 a month) -- Offering unlimited minutes of voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and 5 gigabytes of data
Blessed Plan ($56 a month) --Offering unlimited minutes of voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and 7 gigabytes of data
