Re: Solavei (pays YOU to have phone service?)
I just joined Solavei and still waiting for my SIM to arrive.

Most people get mad and leave the service because Solavei failed to advertise that fact in a simple manner. They state that pre paid usually doesn't allow short codes because of the fees, but that's not true. Every other mvno I researched into allows it to some degree. And tmobile prepaid allows it for sure.
But luckily, I don't run a business that relies on shortcodes like some people I've read about. So only bad thing for me is the inconvenience of quickly checking my balance at my bank.
Oh and an FYI, they don't support tethering also. But that's a bit blurry because it seems like they say they don't allow it but they don't enforce it. They can however cut you off since it's technically against their tos. And speaking of getting cut off, if you ever go on vacation or something you would still have to keep paying for your bill. If you don't pay your bill within 30 days you're out.
