Defense Mobile Loses Beta Tag, Adds Carriers


Update: Defense Mobile has increased plan data and changed up the mobile carriers. Read more about current updates here. Defense Mobile, a prepaid multi-MVNO focused exclusively for those connected to the United States military, has officially launched and removed its ‘beta’ tag this week. The company, which we talked about briefly a few months ago, includes service from three of the four major carriers—Sprint, Verizon and AT&T. According to Fierce Wireless, Defense Mobile is currently in talks with the T-Mobile as well, and that network will likely be available soon. As far as plan options, Defense Mobile offers both individual and family plans as well as international pay-as-you-go options. Here are the individual plan options:
  • Alpha Plan ($30) – 300 talk, 300 text, 300 MB 4G data
  • Bravo Plan ($35) – unlimited talk and text
  • Charlie Plan ($40) – unlimited talk and text, 1 GB 4G data
  • Delta Plan ($50) – unlimited talk and text, 3 GB 4G data
  • Zulu Plan ($80) – unlimited talk and text, 10 GB 4G data
Family plans range from 2 – 5 lines and range in price from $95 – $200. Data is shared between lines, but all plans allow for about 3 GB of data per line, making quite the savings versus the individual plans. International calling is available as well, and minutes can be purchased on pay-as-you-go basis for $10 – $50. There is also an unlimited option that includes calls to more than 80 countries. Both landlines and mobile numbers are allowed for a few countries. Click here to view international locations. In order to even be eligible for this 100% military veteran-ran organization, customers must be:
  • US Military Service member (including National Guard or Reserve)
  • Officer Canidata in a commissionign program (Academy, ROCT, OCS/OTS)
  • Veterans (defined as a former member of the uniformed services who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable)
  • Retirees (defined as a former member of the uniformed services who is entitled, under statute, to retired, retirement or retainer pay)
  • Military spouses or Military family members

    Defense Mobile’s plans are now more data than is shown here.
    The family plan data is also not shared – it’s 6GB per line.

      Hi Matt! This is an older post which I apparently forgot to update. When launched, they had different plans, as seen here. I’ll post the updated article at the top or you can read it here. Thanks for reading!!
