How does it work?

Our plans are designed for using the Light Phone II as your primary phone. The SIM card is free, and you will not be charged for a plan until you decide to activate the SIM card by signing up for one of our Light Service plans using the Dashboard website. The plan is billed on a 30 day period.

Sign up for our service plan at any point in the future. There are no contract commitments for signing up for the service plan.

What's my phone number?

You can port your existing phone number, or we can provide a new phone number for you.


Unlimited does mean unlimited calls and texts within the United States. There are separate charges for international calls which vary in price by region.

1GB & 5GB plans offer different data options for users which is required for certain features like streaming podcasts or hotspot.

The $70/mo. unlimited data plan is intended for users who plan to heavily use the Light Phone's hotspot functionality. It is an unlimited data plan, but it does begin to throttle after heavy usage as is common with carrier unlimited plans. After 22GB & up to 50GB, data usage is slowed to a max of 3 Mbps, after 50GB data is slowed to 128 Kbps for the rest of the billing cycle. This throttling may impact the functionality of data-intensive applications like video streaming.

Additional fees/taxes?

There is a 10% recovery fee that covers all taxes including a variety of fees like the Public Safety Communications Surcharge (a fixed rate added to all lines) and local state taxes & fees, which are usually percentage-based.

Family Plans?

Unfortunately we do not yet offer family plans on the Light Service, although this is something we'd like to support in the future. If you plan to use multiple Light Service lines, we recommend activating the lines using the same Light Account to centralize all your Light Service plans on one account and email.
