Solavei Introduces The First Social Commerce Network
Unlimited Voice, Text and Data Mobile Service Pays Back Consumers for Social Sharing
BELLEVUE, Wash. (July 26, 2012) – Addressing current economic challenges and the high cost of mobile service, SolaveiTM debuts today as a new social commerce company with an affordable, contract-free mobile service that actually pays back consumers for adding new members. The Solavei Mobile Service is a comprehensive mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) utilizing T-Mobile's nationwide 4G network. Consumers simply sign up for a $49 per month unlimited voice, text and data plan and can earn income by engaging friends and family to purchase the mobile service through Solavei's integrated social networking platform.
"We are going to make a difference in people's lives by shifting billions of dollars from traditional mass-media advertising into the greatest advertising vehicle today – people," said Ryan Wuerch, founder and CEO of Solavei "Solavei is the first company to create an economic linkage between mobile service, social commerce and social-networking technology. We give people the opportunity to earn income by using and promoting the services they are already consuming each and every day."
Through Solavei's social media platform and mobile application, members can introduce the Solavei Mobile Service experience to others and generate income. At its simplest, members earn $20 per month on every three mobile-service members (called a "Trio") that they or someone in their personal network add to Solavei. When members have three Trios in their network, the income generated is greater than their monthly plan cost of $49, essentially making their mobile service free. Members can grow their recurring monthly income as they use their social networks to sign up more people for Solavei Mobile Service, turning their mobile phones into profit generators.
"Solavei is introducing a first-of-its-kind approach to wireless, and we're pleased to have them as a strategic MVNO partner," said Doug Chartier, senior vice president of T-Mobile. "T-Mobile's network is a strong part of the Solavei offering, giving its members the benefit of a fast, dependable mobile data network with nationwide 4G coverage."
With more than 140 full-time employees and contractors along with more than 30 industry-leading partners, Solavei is poised to make commerce less expensive and even profitable for consumers nationwide.

"Solavei is the first company focusing to capitalize on the intersection of mobile service and social media,'' said Roger Entner, founder and lead analyst of Recon Analytics. "This offering has the potential to revolutionize, not only the mobile service industry, but many different products and services.''
Operating on the T-Mobile 4G nationwide network, Solavei gives its members the flexibility to use a compatible unlocked GSM mobile phone, or they can purchase the HTC One S, HTC Wildfire or ZTE Origin from Solavei.
Solavei Mobile Service is currently in pre-launch with thousands of members and will launch nationwide on Sept. 21, 2012.
