CREDO's not just an activist organization-we're America's only progressive mobile phone company.

It's been a year since President Obama was inaugurated. While we're pleased with some of the progressive change we've seen, it's now clear we have a long way to go-and that powerful interests will try to block us at every turn.

So we think it's time to ask: is your mobile phone company part of the problem, or part of the solution? You may be surprised.

AT&T, one of the largest corporate political contributors in America, has helped elect opponents of progress such as Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and James Inhofe (R-Okla.).

Since 2002, Verizon Wireless has steadily contributed to the Blue Dog Democrats, whose opposition has diluted the impact of many progressive reform proposals.

CREDO Mobile fights for the causes you care about. Like reproductive rights, real healthcare reform, peace and the environment. And to celebrate the one-year anniversary of a new era, we're offering great deals on mobile service. Join today and get:*

  • Contract buyout credit up to $200
  • Your first monthly service fee waived
  • No contract for 30 days**
  • Number portability; keep your current number
  • Nationwide coverage on the all-digital Sprint® network, reaching more than 280 million people.†

But that's not all. With CREDO Mobile you'll also get one feature you won't find anywhere else: automatic donations to progressive causes. Since 1985 we've donated over $65 million to groups like True Majority/USAction, Physicians for a National Health Program, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and the Sierra Club.

So ask yourself: is your phone company working for your values? Think about it. Then think about CREDO Mobile.

'I've had a great experience in my two years with CREDO. When I call, they make time for my needs and questions, no matter how inane or complicated. They really invest in long-term relationships with customers, which I appreciate. I also like knowing part of my bill goes directly to the things I love supporting. Besides my talking habit, I mean...'
