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.
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).
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.
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.
LG has added another member to its K lineup of handsets. The LG K3 is decidedly a budget friendly smartphone offering, and by landing at Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile (both prepaid subsidiaries of major US wireless carrier Sprint), it should be a welcome option for customers of the two prepaid mobile service providers.
To date, the biggest wireless carrier in all of America does not support Apple’s Wi-Fi calling technology, which lets mobile users make and take phone calls via Wi-Fi connections on other iCloud connected handsets such as iPad tablets and Apple Watch devices.
In light of the very recent terrorist attacks that struck the airport and subway in the city of Brussels in Belgium, the four biggest wireless carriers in the United States, namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, have all decided to waive all charges for voice calls and text messages made to and from Belgium. This should be a big help to US based mobile users who currently have friends and family in Belgium.
