Credo Mobile has made its business on offering up the phones people want with a social conscience. The San Francisco based company donates portions of its proceeds to progressive causes such as Planned Parenthood, the Rainforest Action Network, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation
Credo now has Google’s latest, the Nexus 5 in both black and white. It joins Apple’s iPhone 5s among the high-end phones offered by the sub-carrier. Credo piggybacks on Sprint‘s network along with Boost mobile. But it gives its customer the opportunity to have the hot new phones while still putting their mobile dollars towards the causes they believe in. Unlike regular carriers, you will have to buy the devices for full price, however. Credo Mobile is offering the Nexus 5 for $449
