Defense Mobil Cell Carrier For Vets Only, And Run By Vets


Recommended Posts

I usually don't bite on the ads I see in the Military.com website but did click on one that looks very good to me so far. I emailed them with a request for more info about Windows phones and 4G LTE speeds. Here is their website: https://www.defensemobile.com/


Their plans show both the base price and the price after taxes and fees. No fine print: https://shop.defensemobile.com/plans


I am not affiliated with them in any way. But bring them up in case anyone has used them and has an opinion and review. We don't need as much data as the $95 plan ($102.60 total) provides, 12 GB. I have never used 1 GB on my phone. But I don't mind watching movies and other data activities I currently don't use.


If they can deliver Verizon speeds and not the slow 4G that I got from Straight Talk, then they can count us in. Verizon will cost us for two lines 80 bucks after the 20 bucks per line and the $60 buck basic plan charges. with taxes likely around $86.90 for Verizon with only 6GB of data. Verizon's 12 GB XL $80 plan after adding together the 20 bucks per line and the 80 bucks basic price, comes to $120.00 and likely $130 after taxes and fees. For ten bucks more you get three lines and 18GB of data with Defense Mobil.


I enjoyed Straight Talk when 3G was the standard. I may try these folks. And proving I'm a vet will be easy as I retired in 1998 after 1985, their cutoff for automatic verification of service.


Here is their member eligibility page: http://help.defensemobile.com/about Go to that link then scroll down to Eligibility and click on it.


Looks good at first glance. If I use them I will review them too later.


I went to their website after reading a ZDNet article called "Mobile plan pricing: The truth is out there"

The prices they display aren't the full story of what they'll want to pull out of your wallet.


That very informative article that covers all the major carriers is here: http://www.zdnet.com/article/when-it-comes-to-phone-service-pricing-some-major-carriers-are-pretty-much-lying/?tag=nl.e539&s_cid=e539&ttag=e539&ftag=TRE17cfd61
