Asked by Jeremy Gall (2 years ago)
1st Question is .. if anyone has already received the free phone with the acp program What kind of android phone was it?? 2nd Question.. Do you receive the unlimited data that has been advertised along with unlimited talk and text also?? 3rd Question.. Has anyone received their new device & have been using it for any length of time?? What do you think ? I ask because I've tried a couple other company's that now offer this program and I've yet to receive a device that works longer than a week. And when I first activated them the way it showed me , I've never been able to get it to work .

We have a great selection of low-cost preowned phones. Here is a link to our products: If you just need a plan for local calls and texting in the U.S., we recommend our $10 plan with 300 nationwide minutes, unlimited texting and 1GB data. If you need more minutes, than we recommend our $15 plan with unlimited nationwide minutes, unlimited texting, and 1GB data. Hope this helps!

Hello - 1) As of today, Monday, March 29, 2021, are you still activating phones/devices and lines on the legacy Sprint CDMA network - if so, for how much longer? I live in an area where T-Mobile is not available. 2) Are you offering California Lifeline plans? If you have been approved by the C.P.U.C., what handset and model would I receive? Your filing with the C.PU.C. indicated a "basic" handset - so I'm assuming the free phone is not a "smart" phone.
Asked by Pretty Colors (3 years ago)
Hi! 1) Gen Mobile is still activating legacy 3G and 4G Sprint CDMA network phones thru end of 2021 unless we hear otherwise from Sprint. 2) We do not currently have details on our California Lifeline plans as it is pending approval by the C.P.U.C. Hope this answers all your questions. Cheers, Gen Mobile Care Team

Does messaging include MMS and group messaging
Asked by Lisa Best (4 years ago)
Hi Lisa! Yes, messaging includes MMS and group messaging but it would require for you to have data or to be connected to the Wi-Fi in order for you to be able to send/receive the messages. I hope this answers your question.

Asked by Thomas Herbst (5 years ago)
Hi Thomas, Thank you for contacting Gen Mobile! We run on the Nationwide Sprint® Network which is a CDMA network. SIM cards on this network are specific to the phone model. If you have a Sprint, Boost, Virgin Mobile or another Sprint carrier phone, these phones already include a SIM card that is compatible with our network. Just click here to purchase a plan: After checkout, you can call or chat with a Gen Mobile Care rep to activate your phone instantly. If you are bringing a phone from another provider, click here to purchase a SIM card: You must select your phone model so we can make sure we send you the correct SIM card.
