Now... on with the show
HEB Mobile is an exact clone of Fusion Mobile, so this posting will cover both services.
Both services run on the Sprint CDMA network. All "plans" feature unlimited nights and weekends, and Wireless web is available for about 1/4th the price of Cingular's prepaid offerings (after the daily fee, of course)
This service features the older Moto v120e, the Nokia 3588i, both at about $50.
Others featured are Samsung and Sanyo models priced at about $70 and 90 respectively.
Freedom Plans with Free Unlimited Nights and Weekends and Keep Your Unused Minutes
|Plans||Peak Minutes||Access Days||Free Unlimited |
Nights and Weekends*
|Domestic Long Distance|
As you can see this is intended to be a monthly service, and includes nights and weekends on all plans. For the glovebox prepaid user... this IS NOT the service to go with.
Additional Services are available with this service, and are as follows:
Unlimited Walkie-Talkie: Just 50¢ a day!
Use Unlimited Walkie-Talkie to all Fusion Mobile and Powered by Fusion Mobile customers for just 50¢ a day. Best of all, Walkie-Talkie doesn't use any of your plan minutes.
Picturemail with Wireless Web: Just 30¢ a day plus data usage
Send three Picturemails (MMS) for only 18¢ each. Now you can send as many Picturemails as you want for just 30¢ a day plus data charges of .235¢ per 10Kb transferred. That's just 8¢ for a 35Kb Picturemail (MMS) in and out.
Wireless Web: Just 20¢ a day plus data usage
Surf the wireless web for just 20¢ a day plus .235¢ per 10Kb transferred (that's 12¢ for every 50Kb transferred). Check your email, look up movie times and see sports scores for just pennies a day. (Source: http://www.fusionmobile.com/refills.aspx)
the HEB Mobile service offerings are identical to Fusions, so Fusion's links are a perfect comparison of HEB Mobile's services.
Now... you have been introduced to HEB Mobile and Fusion Mobile. Please feel free to comment on your impressions of these services and if you have tried these services please feel free to comment on your experience with either of these services.
