Reach supports service on most current iPhones and androids - but not all. Be sure to check device compatibility as part of your search process.
Reach only bills you for the data you use - even if you sign up for a plan that offers more data than you are able to consume, Reach will automatically move your bill down to the plan that most closely matches the data you used in a month.
All plans include unlimited talk and text.
Most Reach plans are 'shareable' - meaning that you can add a phone line to a plan for +$20/month and that line can then share in the data bucket you have selected.
All data is usable via mobile hotspot.
Reach Mobile currently only offers talk/text/data plans (no data only plans).
Reach does offer an 'unlimited' plan - which is actually 20GB of high-speed data then unlimited "potentially slower speeds after that." Upon follow-up of what "potentially slower speeds after that" meant - we were informed that "potentially slower speeds after that" means a hard throttle of 2G speeds.
Available Plans (taxes/fees not included)
- 3GB - $35
- 5GB - $45
- 10GB - $60
- 20GB (Unlimited 2G) - $70
The above plans are priced for the Verizon network, although pricing on the AT&T network is consistent - with the customer requesting which network's SIM card they would like to receive.
