Flat Wireless has decided that it will discontinue its wireless service operations in small markets across the states of Arizona, California, and Texas. The mobile operator currently offers wireless services under the ClearTalk brand, but since it is planning to soon throw in the towel, it will become a dealer of Boost Mobile, the prepaid service provider owned by major national carrier Sprint.
Sprint’s prepaid arm, Boost Mobile, is introducing a new four line promotional deal called Project Switch. Basically, this latest special offer comes with four lines of service with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data, as well as 8 gigabytes of mobile hotspot use, for a price of $100 a month, or equivalent to only $25 for each line of service. Strictly speaking, customers will be paying $100 for the first line of service, with the second, third, and fourth line offered essentially free of charge.
It was only a matter of time actually, and now it really is happening -- the unlimited wars are now on prepaid, thanks to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. T-Mobile and Sprint, of course, fired the first shots back in August of last year when they launched their respective unlimited data options, effectively igniting a war over who has got the better unlimited offering.
Sprint has threatened to discontinue service to mobile virtual network operator RingPlus for non-payment, and it could happen by February 11th. Apparently, the MVNO has filed a lawsuit against the major US wireless carrier, claiming that Sprint is involved in fraudulent practices. Moreover, RingPlus is seeking in its filing to stop or at least postpone the shut down.
Sure, February 11th is still some five days away, and it is possible that RingPlus’ legal action could change Sprint’s decision, but for current customers of the MVNO, it may be best to start considering other options now, specifically in terms of looking for another mobile operator in which to port one’s phone number.
Major US wireless carrier Sprint has struck a music streaming partnership with Napster (formerly known as Rhapsody). The partnership, however, does not mean that subscribers of the fourth biggest mobile operator in America will be able to enjoy exclusive access to delicious Napster deals or even get to preinstall the official Napster mobile app on their handsets. But it does combine billing unto the customer’s smartphone plan.
Apparently so. According to Wave7 Research, it seems that the prepaid arm of Sprint has decided to pull in the reins of a particular special offer that that has Boost Mobile hand free devices to customers who switch from rival networks. The talk is that the move was meant to be sort of a peace gesture, but interestingly, Boost Mobile’s competitors are having none of it.
Looking for a midrange smartphone with impressive battery specifications? Then you might want to check out the latest handset offering from LG. Now made available on Boost Mobile (a prepaid brand of major American wireless carrier Sprint) for a price of $150, the LG X Power features a formidable 4,100 mAh battery. The device’s battery is one of the biggest among smartphones out in the market with a similar price range.
In light of the recent 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Italy just this week, all the major wireless carriers in the United States, namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, have revealed that they are planning to waive all communication fees between the US and Italy on a temporary basis.
Sprint is launching its new Unlimited Freedom option, which offers a couple of lines of unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and nationwide 4G LTE data, plus optimized streaming video, gaming, and music, for only $100 per month, with no access fees or hidden charges. Unlimited Freedom will officially debut this coming Friday, August 19th.
