Well, it is a bit complicated. When SprintrelaunchedVirgin Mobile back in June earlier this year, the fourth biggest mobile operator in America had positioned the prepaid brand as an iPhone only carrier. It turned out that Virgin had landed a deal with Apple to sell only iPhone devices through a new wireless plan called Inner Circle, offering unlimited gigabytes of data for $50 each month.
Virgin Mobile, the recently rebranded prepaid arm of Sprint, has recently decided to expand its $1 a year unlimited wireless service deal to customers who already are owners of iPhone devices. These customers need only activate their own iPhone on Virgin’s network and then transfer their current phone number to the mobile operator’s Inner Circle offering.
Some may remember that when Virgin Mobile was relaunched by Sprint as a carrier that only sells iPhone devices back in June earlier this year, Virgin also took the opportunity to introduce a limited time offer -- specifically one that promised to provide one full year of unlimited service (which includes unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data) for just $1.
According to BayStreet Research, Virgin Mobile, the newly relaunched prepaid arm of major US wireless carrier Sprint, could sell between 100,000 to 300,000 units of Apple’s iPhone devices by way of Virgin’s new Inner Circle unlimited plan. For those not familiar with Inner Circle, it is a plan that offers budget friendly iPhone models paired with one year of unlimited service, free of charge, to customers who are willing to avail of the plan online.
After a rather long wait, Sprint has finally relaunched its prepaid arm Virgin Mobile with an interesting rebranding twist -- Virgin Mobile has now been transformed into a wireless carrier that only sells iPhone devices. Specifically, Virgin Mobile is now offering one full year of unlimited data for $1 to customers who decide to purchase a smartphone from Apple and then port their phone number to the new Inner Circle plan not later than July 31st of this year.
Virgin Mobile, a prepaid arm of major US wireless carrier Sprint, is introducing a new option called Data Love Unlimited, which at $60 per month offers customers unlimited 4G LTE voice calls, text messaging, and data. On top of that, this latest plan also comes with mobile optimized video streaming, gaming, and music (video content is in 480p resolution, music is at 500 kbps, and cloud gaming is up to 2 mbps). For context, know that all the members of the Big Four (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint) offer high definition video streaming on their respective unlimited options.
Sprint has threatened to discontinue service to mobile virtual network operator RingPlus for non-payment, and it could happen by February 11th. Apparently, the MVNO has filed a lawsuit against the major US wireless carrier, claiming that Sprint is involved in fraudulent practices. Moreover, RingPlus is seeking in its filing to stop or at least postpone the shut down.
Sure, February 11th is still some five days away, and it is possible that RingPlus’ legal action could change Sprint’s decision, but for current customers of the MVNO, it may be best to start considering other options now, specifically in terms of looking for another mobile operator in which to port one’s phone number.
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.
In light of the recent 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Italy just this week, all the major wireless carriers in the United States, namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, have revealed that they are planning to waive all communication fees between the US and Italy on a temporary basis.
A couple of prepaid subsidiaries of the fourth biggest wireless carrier in America have revealed that they are releasing most likely the cheapest smartphone of 2016 -- the Alcatel Dawn.
