Some glitches, bare bones stuff
This service and app are really bare bones. Here’s what you get: get access to data and a super basic text and calling service for an affordable price.
Now maaaybe I’ve had more glitches than others because I have an unlocked GSM iPhone as opposed to an unlocked CDMA phone. Just a hunch I have, since GSM compatibility is new for this service.
The data works just fine, but I’ve experienced two major glitches so far. If my screen locks while I’m on a call (which I have to do through this app), the call quasi-drops where it still shows I’m connected, but I cannot hear anything from the other end. Additionally, my voicemails will not delete. If I delete them, they come back. I tried getting a fix from customer support (who are all helpful!), but to no avail. Yikes.
Overall, I’m simply content with this bare bones stuff until I can afford a better network.
great for cellular data on my iphone
UNREAL for $10 per month is a great way to put cellular data on my iphone (via the AT&T network) when away from my home wifi. just pop the sim card in and you have service. and for $10 per month, that super affordable for me. that’s my main purpose in having UNREAL on my iphone. and yes can make the occasional phone call, but really who makes real cell calls nowadays? okay so it’s like once a week/month cell calls for me, so the voip UNREAL calls are okay when needed. and they do sound like real cell calls to me with hardly any lag. but the main purpose for having UNREAL on my iphone is to have real working cellular data (via AT&T) in order to have my iphone do its thing particularly when not on my home wifi. thanks UNREAL.
If on gsm don’t join!
Do not join this service until they are ready, they are clearly not there.
I had an unlocked iPhone on att and tried unreal mobile to save money. I figured same network no problem. I was wrong.
The process to join is not easy. I had to make many calls to customer service. One had me on hold for 55 minutes, two for over 15. This would not be necessary except they don’t answer email help requests and the online system is very basic.
Finally after getting started, after three days, the native iPhone calling and iMessage apps don’t work. That is the design of the system.
Your iPhone won’t do any of the automatic things you are used to. No more Siri directed calls. No more easy connection for sending photos. All gone!
I’m switching back.
Update: THIS IS NOT A PHONE SERVICE. Unreal is a data service with VOIP. This means that if you have less than three bars on an iPhone you cannot make calls. They either will not go through or be choppy. Get used to “can you hear me now”
UNREAL WILL TAKE YOUR PHONE NUMBER and make it a classification that other carriers see as a landline. Several companies said they could not transfer my number. I could switch but I would loose my number. Unreal said this was the case and I could find a company to accept my number. I finally did. It will take consumers cellular two days to port my number, but they will do it.
GOOD RIDDANCE UNREAL MOBILE!
