You can say that FreeUP Mobile’s approach to offering its brand of mobile service is rather clever -- it targets budget conscious mobile users (especially those of the robust prepaid market) by promising plans made affordable (and sometimes even free of charge) by way of rewards and ads.
T-Mobile has just announced that its new T-Mobile One Military pricing plan now comes with a 20 percent discount on the first line of service and then a 50 percent discount on up to five extra voice lines. This new pricing plan is made available to members of the military and their families, or small businesses owned by current or former military personnel. For good measure, the plan promises a 50 percent discount on a Galaxy S9, a Galaxy S9 Plus, or a Galaxy S8 Active unit.
AT&T has decided to reduce the pricing of its unlimited data plan to $80 month, which is now ten bucks less expensive than its original rate. On top of that, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has also proceeded to throw in some pricing discounts, as well as added benefits, like a lifetime subscription to HBO, plus a $15 video credit for the mobile operator’s video service offerings.
Sprint is apparently deciding to keep on offering its free year of unlimited service deal -- about a month ago, the carrier had stated that the offer was supposed to expire at the end of January, but the company has since announced its intentions of extending the deal until the end of April later this year.
By introducing its new buy one get one special offer for the iPhone X, AT&T just became the first major US wireless carrier to launch such a generous promotional deal for one of the three flagship devices that Apple had launched last year. The iPhone X, after all, is widely considered as the most expensive iPhone model to date (with a starting price of a thousand bucks), and a BOGO deal that features the handset is certainly most welcome.
As projected by analysts from Deutsche Bank Markets Research through an investors note issued recently this week, T-Mobile will likely finish this year capturing 60 percent of all postpaid phone customers. The number three mobile operator in America (just behind industry leaders Verizon Wireless and AT&T, read our 2018 review here) had just released its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2017, and the company estimated that it would add no less than 2 or 3 million total customers for the whole year of 2018.
As part of a new Valentine’s Day promotional deal it is running until February 17th, Motorola is selling an unlocked version of its Moto Z2 Play for a price of only $350. Yup, that is a full $150 discount on the device’s regular retail pricing. But it should be mentioned though that the discount only applies to the 64 gigabyte edition with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and the 32 gigabyte edition with 3 gigabytes of RAM.
It might be safe to say that Samsung had a pretty good 2017. The release of its flagship devices -- the Galaxy S8 models and the Galaxy Note 8 -- saw the world’s biggest vendor of smartphones finally move on from the Galaxy Note 7 mess it had to endure during the previous year. And even if the Galaxy Note 7 recall did not happen, the South Korean tech giant’s newest additions to its Galaxy lineup of handsets are still awesome products in their own right, as any owner can surely attest.
