Charge is Going Out Of Business – The Sprint powered, data only MVNO called, “Charge” announced today that they will cease operations on June 30th. Charge launched as a new Sprint MVNO in March 2016. Shortly after launch, they started to offer talk and text to their customers as well. On January 17th, 2017 Charge decided it was necessary to stop offering talk and text. They decided to go back to being a data-only Sprint MVNO. 5 months and 13 days after revoking their talk and text offering, the company announced that Charge will end operations at the end of this month.

Sprint Data Only MVNO, Charge is Going Out Of Business on June 30th
We never like to see an American business fail but the prepaid wireless market is extremely competitive. Charge is Going Out Of Business but it isn’t for a lack of trying. They had a very inexpensive plan that only cost customers a $3 monthly service charge or, “line access fee” as many phone companies call it. Their data cost only $13/GB. Typically companies with such low rates hope to gain enough customers at this loss-leader type of pricing. Eventually, they turn a profit if the carrier gives them a volume-based price break.

Best Cellular has offered to port phone numbers of current Charge customers into our Best Cellular (PCS) service.
