Mobile virtual network operator FreedomPop has apparently inked a collaboration with the second biggest wireless carrier in America. This week, the MVNO is launching SIM cards and an LTE mobile hotspot that will work on AT&T’s network. According to FreedomPop, the new SIM card only costs $10 and can be used on any certified GSM handset in order to gain access to AT&T’s LTE network.
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.
Similar to what it has done for previous iPhone releases, Apple is now offering SIM free editions of its latest flagship devices, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Before these new versions, only iPhone 7 units tied to specific mobile operators were made available during the first few weeks since the newest models hit the market.
As indicated by images leaked by China based smartphone repair website Rock Fix, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 device could have room for a couple of SIM cards. As reported by Engadget, the proprietor of Rock Fix posted the photos themselves, but he did not share how he was able to acquire those images.
FreedomPop already provides its customers with international calling, domestic voice calls and text messaging and data. Now, the American wireless carrier mainly known for offering free voice and data services is debuting a brand new worldwide roaming product at a special offer price. Its Global 3-in-1 SIM card is targeted at mobile users who travel around the world a lot, but want to do away with paying roaming charges if they can help it.
Apple’s latest iPad tablet offering, the 9.7 inch iPad Pro, comes with an embedded Apple SIM card. Other recent devices from the company also feature this SIM, but unlike most physical SIM cards, this one is hard wired into the tablet, which means it will not be removable. But now that Apple has begun tinkering with embedded SIMs on its tablets, are iPhones next?
Tech giant Apple did not just announced new iPads (and then some) last Thursday, the company also quietly unveiled the Apple SIM, a SIM Card that allows users to switch between AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Apparently, with the release of its iPad Air 2, Apple is also offering its customers the option of purchasing a cellular edition that features the Apple SIM. As many may know, a SIM card is that small piece of plastic inside any smartphone that lets users connect to a wireless carrier's network. Normally, SIM cards are configured to work for one particular carrier only. For example, if you purchase a smartphone on a two-year agreement from, say, T-Mobile, the device will typically come with a T-Mobile SIM card inside it. Obviously, you would not be able to use your phone on another network, like AT&T's for instance -- unless of course, you purchase an AT&T SIM card and put it in your device. That is about to change, courtesy of the Apple SIM. You see, Apple's SIM card is designed to work with more than one carrier, so you need not purchase just one SIM for each carrier anymore. With the Apple SIM, you can flip flop from one carrier to another whenever you want to, and you will not need to sign up for any two-year agreement, or buy anything directly from a specific carrier.
