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.
Sprint apparently has plans to unlock a certain functionality hidden in a number of its marquee handsets (including flagship devices from Samsung and Apple) that will essentially allow these devices to take full advantage of a piece of wireless tech that will deliver faster connection speeds. This was revealed much by Gunther Ottendorfer, the chief operating officer of the major US wireless carrier, just this week.
There is no denying it -- winter has come. And for most people, now is the perfect time to go on a holiday to someplace exotic and warmer than usual. Sprint is giving its customers more reason to celebrate with a new announcement they recently made. With the announcement, they are giving their customers a chance to take advantage of their Unlimited Freedom plans all the way to the Caribbean.
The world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices is planning to roll out a new software update that should brick every Galaxy Note 7 phablet that has not yet been returned. Specifically, Samsung’s software update will prevent all remaining units out there from charging, and will also take away their ability to function as smartphones.
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.
