Niantic, the creator of mobile game phenomenon Pokemon Go, is teaming up with major US wireless carrier Sprint in transforming the latter’s outlets into PokeStops and Gyms. For good measure, Sprint’s stores will also be fitted with in store charging stations so that Pokemon Go players can play for an extended period of time.
It appears that Sprint’s Black Friday special offer for families or groups was a hit, because the wireless carrier has decided to extend the deal. There is no word yet on how long it will be extended, but it is a good bet it will only be for a limited time.
The last few weeks have seen shares of both T-Mobile and Sprint improve, partly thanks to some rumors that the two major US wireless carriers are looking to merge under the upcoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump. Industry watchers believed that a merger between the two mobile operators was unlikely to happen under President Barack Obama’s reign, but that could change with Trump as the leader of the free world.
Sprint has announced its latest Black Friday deal and it may be its best one yet. In this newest offer, mobile users who decide to sign up for Unlimited Freedom get to have their third, fourth, and fifth lines of service free of charge. That’s three free lines with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data.
With the rising number of unused smartphones, it is only logical that manufacturers would look for a way these devices can still be appreciated. Banking in on this idea, FreedomPop has recently launched an online store where they will be offering refurbished and used smartphones. The online store is called FreedomShop and is currently available for customers based in the United States, Mexico, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
Apart from T-Mobile, another major US wireless carrier, Sprint, is also announcing its Black Friday deals this week. Sprint’s offers cover smartphone devices and mobile accessories, and range from buy one get one deals to generous discounts and item giveaways. Black Friday may still be a week away, but it may be a good idea to check out the deals in advance.
HTC has joined forces with major US wireless carrier Sprint in releasing its newest high end smartphone offering, the Bolt. At a price of $599 (or $25 a month over a period of a couple of years), the HTC Bolt is actually being offered as a Sprint exclusive, and will be arriving in the carrier’s outlets starting this weekend.
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.
Sprint has filed its preliminary quarterly financials with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) just recently, and the results are mainly positive. The major US wireless carrier reported 344,000 net postpaid customer additions during the third quarter of this year, as well as registering 347,000 net postpaid phone additions, comfortably surpassing the 275,000 mark projected by Wells Fargo Securities.
Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) FreedomPop has decided to team up with Dish Mexico in order to start providing free wireless services in Mexico. If this partnership proves to be a successful model, the carrier is looking to replicate its success in other mobile markets as well. Dish Mexico is owned by Dish and MVS Comunicaciones and is game in collaborating with FreedomPop in bringing free voice calls, text messaging and data access to Mexican mobile users.
