CHICAGO, Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GIV Mobile, the first consumer conscious no-contract wireless service, announces that it has partnered with Affirm, a San Francisco-based financial technology company, to extend an easy-to-understand and transparent device financing solution to its customers. The financing alternative allows customers to purchase mobile phones and devices with the option to pay the cost of their purchase over 3, 6 or 12 months with 10-30% APR financing. Just in time for the holidays, GIV Mobile customers are now able to affordably purchase high-end devices, such as Apple™ iPhones, as gifts without having to pay the full price upfront. A refurbished 16 GB Apple™ iPhone 5C is listed as $269.00 on the GIV Mobile website, but with Affirm, the phone is priced as low as $23.64/month based on a 12-month payment plan and a 10% APR.
"We're happy to announce that our customers can now purchase great devices with an affordable and easy to understand payment option," says Omar Abhari, SVP of Operations at GIV Mobile. "GIV Mobile saves its customers hundreds of dollars on wireless service. Now we take things a step farther by giving our customers the option to finance a device with Affirm and pay for it over time without having to commit to a multi-year contract for the wireless service itself."
GIV Mobile offers its own phones that work with all GIV Mobile plans and do not require a contract. However, by purchasing a $4.99 GIV Mobile SIM card, customers have the choice to use most unlocked GSM phones with any GIV Mobile plan.
GIV Mobile operates on a 4G LTE network, allowing users to have fast and reliable wireless connections. Customers can choose from five no-contract wireless plans with unlimited call and text and a variety of data options.
The GIV Mobile unlimited plans include:
$20/month Unlimited Talk and Text - talk, text, international text and 250 MB of 3G/4G data
