Reston, VA – April 1, 2011- Continuing in its commitment to offering consumers a better selection and greater savings when shopping for cell phones, Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phone and cell phone plans, today unveiled its brand new prepaid/no-contract cell phone category, www.wirefly.com/prepaid, and announced a grand opening sale with special offers and discounts from its entire line-up of no-contract providers.
“Wirefly has been a trusted source for quality wireless solutions for almost a decade because we make cell phone shopping affordable, accessible, and easy,” said Andy Zeinfeld, chief executive officer of Simplexity, Wirefly’s parent company. “Today, we are extending our great savings and selection with the addition of our prepaid offerings.”
Just like Wirefly’s expansive postpaid phone category, its new prepaid/no-contract store offers a broad selection of carriers, diverse plans with attractive pricing, a wide assortment of phones from the most basic models to high-end smartphones and the addition of prepaid mobile broadband cards and hotspots. A fresh new design also allows for easy navigation and a better overall shopping experience that helps users quickly find the best phone and perfect rate plan that best fits their needs.
The Perfect Device for Every User
Whether you are the infrequent user who needs a phone for emergencies or the occasional call; or the power user who still wants to talk, text, surf the Internet and send emails without being confined to a service contract, Wirefly’s virtual shelves are stocked with dozens of prepaid phone models from leading service providers: Boost Mobile, MetroPCS, NET10, T-Mobile, TracFone, Verizon Wireless and Virgin Mobile USA. The expansive catalog includes entry-level flip phones, popular touch screens with enhanced features, as well as BlackBerry and Android-powered smartphones that run on lightning fast 4G/LTE networks.
No-Contract Data Cards & Mobile Hotspots
No-contract plans are not limited to cell phones. Much like prepaid cell phones, prepaid mobile broadband cards and hotspots are perfect for people who need to access the Internet but don’t want to sign a two-year contract. Depending on the selected service provider, Wirefly customers have the option to purchase internet access for a day, week, or month.
The Perfect Plan for Every Budget
With so many new service providers to choose from, customers can find a wireless plan to match their lifestyle. From a simple talk-only plan to one that includes unlimited text, email, data and web, Wirefly customers can choose from a variety of affordable pay-per-minute options, as well as daily, weekly, monthly and even unlimited plans, while still enjoying the benefits of prepaid:
“Wirefly clearly recognizes the growing popularity of leading no-contract wireless brands as a real alternative for consumers who care about value and flexibility,” said Jeff Hallock, vice president, National Retail Channels for Sprint. “We provide a number of plans tailored for a wide variety of usage by customers. The Beyond Talk unlimited data plans from Virgin Mobile, starting at $25, are ideal for those connectors who text, email and post to social networking sites more than they call, and use every feature on our smartphones. And Boost Mobile’s popular $50 Monthly Unlimited plans provide talk ‘n’ texters with unlimited voice, text and data without overages, as well as Shrinkage where the longer you stay, the less you pay. Both brands operate on the Sprint nationwide network with no contracts and no activation fees.”
