The Good

  • Basic, easy to use services
  • Plan options
  • Reasonably priced plans

Since Blue Wireless is a small provider, they do not provide some of the services that larger carriers have made available. That being said, Blue Wireless focuses on a certain type of customer and tries to provide an optimal service for them. The ideal Blue Wireless customer is someone who wants a basic, easy-to-use cell phone and only plans on using standard cellular services (talk and text). For those looking for an inexpensive way to provide these types of services, Blue Wireless may be a carrier to consider. Their plans are broken down as follows:

  • Blue $18
    • Unlimited local calls
    • Nationwide coverage
  • Blue $36
    • Nationwide coverage
    • Unlimited long distance
    • Unlimited nationwide text
    • Unlimited pictures and web
    • Voicemail, caller ID, 3 way calling, call waiting
  • Blue $45
    • Nationwide coverage
    • Unlimited local calls
    • Unlimited long distance
    • Unlimited calling to Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Mexico, Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii
    • Unlimited nationwide text
    • Unlimited pictures and web
    • Unlimited voicemail, caller ID, 3 way calling, call waiting

Customers also have the option to upgrade to high speed data for another $15 more/month. Blue Wireless services are straightforward and a great option for the casual cell phone user. There are also no "hidden" fees or long-term contracts.

The Bad

  • Limited services
  • Limited locations
  • Limited data usage

Currently, Blue Wireless' service is relatively limited. They only service the Pennsylvania and New York regions at this time.

Current Blue Wireless customers have also experienced problems with their mobile products and were unable to receive a refund. Since their device selection is so limited, those interested in latest cellular technology may be disappointed in what Blue Wireless offers. There are smartphones available, but there are no Apple iPhone products for sell. Other common complaints from current Blue Wireless customers include:

  • Limited data usage
  • Expensive optional upgrades for basic features
  • Basic plans only allow for calling
  • No international coverage
  • Only three service packages to choose from

The Bottom Line

Blue Wireless is providing a basic service for those who do not wish to get all of the bells and whistles out of their cell phone provider. They focus their efforts on providing basic phones at a low price complete with standard plans. Blue Wireless is not going to be the right option for someone interested in the latest cellular technology or for those who want to maximize the use of a smartphone. Prospective clients can expect the following:

  • Limited device selection
  • Limited service area (New York and Pennsylvania only)
  • Great for those who just want their phone for calling purposes
  • Options to upgrade features/services
  • "National" coverage
  • Inexpensive "unlimited" plans
