Liberty Wireless: Unlimited Texting from $10

Updated 03/09/2015

Liberty Wireless has evolved over the years to now offering unlimited texting starting at $10 per month and a $50 unlimited no-contract plan that includes 4GB of high-speed data.

It is a small, so-called "mobile virtual network provider" which uses a major carrier's network, namely . . .

Coverage on T-Mobile's Network

Coverage is on T-Mobile's GSM network. (Coverage used to be on Sprint a while back, but they've switched.) You can check if you have Liberty Wireless coverage in your general area by entering your zip code. You can also click on their map and zoom down to your region.

Rates and Plans

Rates for their regular prepaid service:

  • $5 for 100 minutes or texts
  • $10 for 100 minutes and unlimited texts
  • $20 for 1000 minutes and unlimited texts
  • $50 for unlimited talk, text and 4GB of data

There doesn't appear to be an activation fee.

If you sign up, your account appears to be administered through the GSM Nation website.

SIM Cards and Phones

You need one of their SIM cards in order to activate your service. You can order the SIM separately for $9.95 or bundled with a small selection of phones which currently include the Huawei Vision ($99.00), Google Nexus 4 ($249.00) or Nexus 5 ($329.99).

Phones from GSM Nation

A good selection of phones is also available through their partner: GSMNation

Who are they?

According to Wikipedia, they are now owned by Cozac LLC, which is a subsidiary of APC Wireless. When I last checked back in 2007, they were a subsidiary of TelePlus World, Corp., based in Miami, FL. So they have traded hands at least once.

Summary

the rates are pretty good, especially if you do a lot of texting and don't need much talk time or any data. If you do need data, then their $50 plan is at least competitive.
