Wireless should be free because it can be.

Smartphones can send texts, run apps, and even make calls using the Internet connections you already have. So why are you paying so much for wireless? Why are you paying at all?

Learn about our free mobile service

When you buy a Scratch smartphone, you’ll never have to pay a penny for service.

Scratch Wireless was created because we love smartphones–we just don’t love paying so much to use them. With Scratch's Android smartphones, our unique technology, and Wi-Fi everywhere, it turns out smartphone service can be free.

You already have the connectivity.

Wi-Fi is nearly everywhere these days, and it's free. You only need cellular to fill the gaps. Our phones use Wi-Fi wherever possible—we call this Wi-Fi First℠. When there's no Wi-Fi around, the Sprint Nationwide Network is there to back you up so you're always connected.

Did You Know?


"80 percent of the time, people connect to the mobile Internet from their home, office, or other indoor location–all areas that are addressable by Wi-Fi" (2012 Cisco report entitled "A New Chapter for Mobile: How Wi-Fi Will Change the Mobile Industry as We Know It" )

Texting is free, even when you’re away from Wi-Fi.

Wireless providers charge you a ton of money for texting, even though it costs them almost nothing to send a text. With Scratch Wireless, texting is free and unlimited on both Wi-Fi and cellular networks.

When there's no Wi-Fi around, you're still good.

If you need data or voice service and there's no Wi-Fi nearby, just buy a pass. It's as easy as buying a song. For as little as $1.99, you can jump on the cellular network (provided on the Nationwide Sprint Network), do what you need to, and when you're back on Wi-Fi it's all free again. If you need more or simply don't want to think about it, we also offer bigger passes to keep you connected all the time. But there's never any contract or obligation. It's always up to you.


Data Passes

$1.99 / 24 hours / unlimited
$14.99 / 30 days / 500 MBs
$24.99 / 30 days / unlimited

Voice Passes

$1.99 / 24 hours / unlimited
$6.99 / 30 days / 100 minutes
$14.99 / 30 days / unlimited

And of course texting is free on Wi-Fi and cellular, and voice and data are free on Wi-Fi!

Our Android smartphones do it all.

The Motorola Photon Q has everything you expect in an Android smartphone. Instagram, Facebook, you name it. The only thing you lose is the absurd monthly payment.

You won’t give up a thing.

With an amazing touch screen, dual high-resolution cameras, fast networking capabilities, and access to the entire Google Play Store, our smartphone does everything you want and more. It's even got a keyboard for texting addicts.
