Recently this week, Comcast’s wireless service, Xfinity Mobile, has announced that BYOD (bring your own device) customers can now activate their unlocked iPhones (albeit select models only -- they can check by heading to this page) on the MVNO’s network by visiting any Xfinity Store location in the United States. Moreover, those users that happen to own handsets that are not eligible can still have their device swapped for a gift card that is worth the value of their smartphone.
According to Randall Hounsell, the vice president of Product and Marketing at Xfinity Mobile, Comcast’s wireless service is planning to debut a handset trade in program, as well as a bring your own device (BYOD) deal later this year. Hounsell also spoke to FierceWireless and revealed that the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) has actually assembled a dedicated team in order to come up with new features and improvements in order to continue enhancing the Xfinity Mobile customer experience.
ROK Mobile recently took the opportunity to unveil new bring your own device (BYOD) plans on Sprint’s network, including options that offer unlimited voice calls and text messaging, plus more generous data inclusions. The full new offerings are Sprint BYOD 1GB, 3GB, and 5GB.
Mobile virtual network operator TextNow Wireless has recently decided to launch a new SIM card -- specifically one that allows mobile users to use their own devices on the Sprint MVNO’s network for a price as low as $14 per month. As a Wi-Fi-centric, cloud based mobile operator, TextNow makes full use of software that enables smooth switching back and forth between Wi-Fi connections and cellular networks. Furthermore, the company is always monitoring Wi-Fi and cellular networks in real time, which puts its in a good position to easily transition between the two when there are inconsistencies in either connectivity options.
Major wireless carriers often incorporate activation fees on their smartphone plans, and subscribers who are not mindful enough sometimes find themselves surprised to discover that they are actually paying for some hidden charges.
