CellNUVO is an MVNO that runs on the Sprint network. The company launched service in 2015 and it operates using a freemium model. Those that subscribe to CellNUVO have the option to signup for a totally free cell phone plan, although the model of service is a bit different than fellow free plan provider FreedomPop.
Subscribers to the free plan start off with 3,000 credits that can be used for service. Credits are deducted from a subscribers account as follows:
- 1 text message = 3 credits
- 1 minute of talk = 20 credits
- 1 MB of data = 20 credits
This means that a subscriber has a combination of a maximum of 3000 text messages, 150 MB of data or 150 minutes to use free of charge each month. Users are able to earn more free credits in a month by performing various tasks. Filling out a questionnaire could earn a subscriber anywhere between 5-100 credits, completing a survey is worth 100-5,000 credits, viewing an ad earns between 5-100 credits. Just by using their phones, subscribers can even earn credits.
A paid plan is also available that offers subscribers more credits. For $19/month subscribers can start off with 18,000 credits.
