Aio Wireless™ Shares Holiday Spirit Early with a “Check-in for Charity” and Great Deals on ZTE Devices for Customers

Aio will donate $5 to the national and local Toys for Tots organizations for every consumer who checks in on Facebook while at any Aio retail location. New customers activating in-store or online can choose a free* ZTE Prelude™, a ZTE Overture™ for $74.99, or a ZTE Altair™ for $24.99

Alpharetta, GA – Oct. 14, 2013 – Aio Wireless today began spreading the holiday spirit with an opportunity for consumers to check-in for charity at any of its stores—and check out with an unbeatable deal on a device.

Aio will help Toys for Tots in local Aio markets by donating $5 for every customer who checks-in on Facebook while visiting any Aio store in person, now through Nov. 10, 2013.  Up to $50,000 will be donated to Toys for Tots, with a minimum $10,000 donation provided to the national Toys for Tots organization.  All dollars raised in addition to the initial $10,000 will go to the local Toys for Tots Units that “checked-in for charity.”  The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December of each year, and distributes them as holiday gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

While checking in at an Aio store or browsing online, consumers are invited to check out Aio’s holiday deals on ZTE devices.  New customers activating a qualifying rate plan in-store or online can get a ZTE Prelude™ smartphone for free* (normally priced at $49.99); a ZTE Overture™ 4G LTE smartphone, normally priced at $149.99, for only $74.99; or the ZTE Altair feature phone, normally priced at $49.99, for only $24.99.  The offer is available for a limited time only while supplies last at all Aio stores and online.

The ZTE Prelude is a pocket-sized delight of a smartphone.  With a 3.5” full touchscreen, 2MP camera for snapping photos and video, web browsing with Google Chrome and the full featured experience of Android Jellybean, the Prelude is quite possibly the best deal in wireless.

The ZTE Overture is a perfect balance of power and value. Dual core processing and 4G LTE speed make this device perfect for the on-the-go multitasker who wants to realize the fastest speeds Aio has to offer.  Add dual cameras, Android Jellybean, and a stylish design, and it is impossible to go wrong.

The ZTE Altair is a great match for the text-first mobile customer.  The quick messaging phone has a full QWERTY keyboard and predictive text so you can let your fingers fly.

Aio launched in select cities in May. Since then it has opened stores in North, Central, and South Florida; metro Atlanta, Georgia; Los Angeles, California; and Houston, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio, Texas. Aio is also available to all U.S. customers online.

Aio makes wireless easy with a friendly in-store and online experience and three simple plans to choose from. All three plans include unlimited talk, text, and data—with a pre-established amount of high-speed data access, including 4G LTE.  Plans range from $40 to $70 per month, taxes and fees included.

Aio customers may choose from a selection of smartphones, tablets, and feature phones from ZTE, Samsung, Nokia, and others. Customers may also bring a device they love to an Aio store for activation on the Aio network or activate online at  Or, they may bring a qualifying wireless phone to an Aio store to trade-in for a credit** towards an upgraded phone or accessory.

“At Aio we like to demonstrate our attitude of gratitude in different ways, from helping the local communities we serve to making wireless easy and affordable for our customers,” said Jennifer Van Buskirk, president of Aio Wireless.  “With a check-in for charity for Toys for Tots, and with amazing deals on devices, we hope to make the holiday season easier for everyone,” she added.
