Giv Mobile

T-Mobile MVNO Giv Mobile has announced that customers purchasing a new two month Unlimited Everything plan will be eligible to get a free Android smartphone.

The no contract cell phone service is known for its charitable efforts, which include donating 8 percent of a customer's monthly bill toward charities like the American Cancer Society, Kids In Need Foundation, PetSmart Charities and more.

To be eligible for the offer, all you have to do is sign up for either a $40 or a $50 two-month Everything Unlimited plan, which as the name suggests comes with unlimited text (which includes global texts), voice and data. The $40 plan includes 250MB 4G/3G data, while the $50 plan gives you 2 gigs monthly at 4G/3G speeds.

After choosing the plan, you can select the charity to which a part of your monthly bill will be donated. As for the free Android smartphone, Giv Mobile is bundling an Alcatel OT-991 handset, which was originally launched in 2012.

The Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered handset boasts a 4-inch 480 x 320 display, 800 MHz Mediatek MT6573 CPU, 150 MB internal storage (microSD slot up to 32 GB), 3.15 MP camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, HSDPA connectivity and a 1,500 mAh battery. Not quite what we're used to these days, but the device is being bundled for free (after using the"GFREEAND3" promo code during checkout).

Giv Mobile giving away an Android smartphone with its unlimited plans

Wow that is a hunk of junk, I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.
Given this mvnos, charitable roots maybe they were donated, I sure hope even they didn't pay for them.

I have an Alcatel OT-991, but I ordered a new phone a few days ago so I shouldn't have to live with it for much longer. To be honest it wasn't too bad with an ICS ROM and rooted so you could move any app to the SD card. It was surprisingly fast as well.

That doesn't make any sense. You get 2 gigs of 4G/3G data for $50 in addition to unlimited text, voice and DATA?

I don't mean to nitpick but there seems to be an inconsistency in the third paragraph.

Most T-Mobile mvnos offer unlimited data, but they throttle down to 2G after you exceed a certain limit. You get unlimited data with giv mobile, but you get only the first 250 mb or 2 GB at full speed

The wife and I rarely break the 100 mb bracket Ting has. We use our phones a lot, but our house, work, and most of the places we visit have wifi, so we just don't need much cellular data.

The phone stinks, but it's going towards a good thing. I won't be getting it (nor would I ever), but it's not so bad if you can't afford anything else.
