Dont take our word for it. Here's what others are saying about BYO Wireless

OMG! How easy was that! My mother-in-law needed a cell phone-but not with all the bells and whistles. Thanks! Jennifer G.
This is great – my son can have his own phone and I don't have to buy a new one. Don S.
My husband said it would be "stupid-proof"--and he was right, he was able to do it! Who knew this old phone would be anything more than a paper weight? - Sue B
Went the lake this weekend and BYO Wireless saved me! After losing my smartphone in the lake last year, I didn’t want to risk it again. I activated my old phone in about 5 minutes, forwarded my calls using *72 and kept it on the jet ski and boat all weekend! Best of all, my BYOW phone had perfect reception when all the other phones got nothing! What an incredible service!” – Chris T
I found myself without a phone (long story) and needed something quick. I had another phone that had been lying around for over a year, logged on to the site and in five minutes or so it was working again. Activating was crazy easy. Awesome concept!
