You asked. We listened!

i-wireless, a Kroger Co.Are you on an ALL-IN monthly plan? If so, you’ll want to take note of the exciting changes we’ve made to the way you’re able to add money to your account!

Until now, adding money via airtime or credit card meant immediately renewing your rate plan and resetting your balances, however, after much interaction with our customers, we understand that there are circumstances where this setup may not be ideal. As such, you’ll have the option of applying the money you add to a plan as usual or to your balance via a new system option. When you elect to add money to your balance, you’ll essentially be adding those funds to your wireless rewards balance and saving the new balance to use at a later time toward a plan or other optional service, such as international calling. Selecting this option will in no way disrupt your current plan or any of its associated talk, text or data allowances.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this new option and the flexibility it offers! And, if you’re a creature of habit and prefer to manage your account as you’ve always done, rest assured that the options you’ve grown accustomed to are still available.

How can you access this new option?
By calling 611 from your i-wireless phone or 1.866.594.3644. Select option 2 to add money to your account. You may use an airtime or credit card to complete this step. Be sure to listen carefully – the system will prompt you to identify how you wish to apply your funds, either toward a plan directly or to your balance for future use. Though not available today, you’ll soon enjoy the ability to make this choice online or via your phone as well – be on the lookout for details coming soon!

Why would you want to add to your balance?
Here are some examples that might help you to decide if this new option is right for you:

You’re proactive…
Let’s say you pick up an airtime card during your regular grocery trip and want to go ahead and add the money to your account before you forget, but your plan is not due for renewal for another week. This option will let you add that airtime to your balance and store it until you’re ready to use it, instead of resetting your current plan to that matching the airtime card amount.

You want to combine your wireless rewards and money from an airtime or credit card to pay for your plan…
Let’s say you have $15 in wireless rewards on your account and you want to use your rewards dollars toward the purchase of our $25 ALL-IN plan. You could redeem a $10 airtime card, apply it to your account balance and then apply your new balance of $25 toward that plan.

You have multiple cards to redeem…
Let’s say your store only had $25 airtime cards and you purchased 2 in order to get the $50 plan. Redeeming these cards and applying the funds to your balance will allow you to apply the total toward the $50 plan. Or, let’s say you received multiple cards as a gift. Instead of applying them as you need, you could redeem them all, apply to your balance and then use your balance to pay for your plan. Please keep in mind that you may not carry a balance greater than $400.00. For full details on account balance restrictions, please refer to the i-wireless terms and conditions of service.

New Year, New Phone

Taho_E4100_Front_ClosedFor many people, a cell phone represents a link they can’t live, or at least leave home without. We rely on them to be our alarm clock, give us directions in the car, provide a direct method of contact when we’re at work, offer entertainment when we have a few free minutes, and deliver jokes and pictures that make us smile. Ask anyone you know and they’ll likely tell you that their cell phone is like an extension of themselves. Ask them about the last time they dropped their phone and you’re likely to get a cringe and a short story about how they cracked their screen or broke their battery cover. Let’s face it – we’re hard on our phones!

Thinking of the importance of our cell phones today and the daily hardships we put them through just makes us more excited to announce the arrival of the Sanyo Taho to our online inventory! It may not be the fanciest phone you’ll see in our collection, but it is certainly the most durable! Complete with its Dura-Grip non-slip texture, this phone is built military tough to be water resistant and withstand dust, shock, vibration and temperature extremes – ensuring that it’s well-equipped for even the toughest environments. The Taho also features GPS navigation, a 2.0 mexapixel camera and memory card slot for added photo and video storage.

The (Many) Advantages of No Contract Wireless Service

mom-smart-phoneRecent research has shown that the average cell phone bill is now over $100 per month! And while major wireless carriers continue to offer expanded coverage, the newest phones and more plan options than ever before, don’t be fooled. Look closely and you’ll see that these benefits are working hard to hide the pitfalls that many consumers overlook – including complicated, costly plans, long-term contracts, overage fees and more.

You can avoid these frustrations and that $100+ bill with prepaid wireless service from i-wireless. The advantages are as clear as the calls you’ll soon be enjoying on your new i-wireless phone.

Savings. With plans starting as low as $10/month and including $50 UNLIMITED and family plan options, you’re bound to save on your monthly bill. And, with the FREE MINUTES rewards program, i-wireless customers can earn free service just for shopping with the Kroger family of stores. For every $100 spent in-store, you’ll earn $1.00 in rewards. Rewards can be saved and eventually applied to a free month of service or can be used to purchase ringtones or to make 411 or international calls.

Simplicity. Why make rates complicated? With ALL-IN Plans from i-wireless, you can choose the plan that’s right for you based on your budget and unique lifestyle. These 30-day plans come equipped with talk, text and data, free long distance and nationwide coverage. Plus, regulatory taxes, surcharges and/or fees are included in the monthly cost for service!

Freedom. With i-wireless there are no contracts, no credit checks and no hidden fees. Plus, i-wireless service is provided on the Sprint Nationwide network, reaching more than 270 million people and offering you the freedom to talk, text and surf wherever, whenever you want!

Flexibility. When your needs change, your i-wireless service can change too. Upgrade your phone or switch plans anytime, without incurring additional fees or extending your commitment.
