Hello Mobile was founded by its CEO, Issa Asad, and is headquartered in Dania Beach, Florida. Asad brings years of experience to the new mobile brand. He established Q Link Wireless back in 2011 and has worked in the telecommunications industry for over 20 years.
Asad launched Hello Mobile with the vision of bringing connectivity to "vunerable populations who have been historically shut off from connectivity, particularly those living in rural areas, where prepaid phone service often required access to retail outlets." Hello Mobile promises its subscribers low rates, and to offer some of the most competitive rates in the nation.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking to Asad to help clear up some of the uncertainty I had in regards to the networks the brand runs on. Asad confirmed to me that Hello Mobile operates on both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks, however, service is primarily provided on the Sprint network.
Currently, customers do not get to choose which network they can use at signup. It's automatically done for them. The Hello Mobile website experience is tailored to an individual's geographic location. If they're in an area without Sprint, and shopping for a new phone they'll be shown a selection of T-Mobile compatible phones. If they are in an area with good Sprint coverage, only Sprint compatible phones will be shown to them. Similarly, Hello Mobile's bring your own device IMEI checker works in the same fashion. Those in a Sprint compatible area will have access to a Sprint based IMEI checker, those in another area will have access to a T-Mobile based IMEI checker.
