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. So, too, are a couple of prepaid brands of another major US wireless carrier, Sprint -- namely Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile -- which currently still do not have support for any of the Wi-Fi tech that the iPhone maker has begun using since it launches its iOS 8 mobile operating system back in 2014.
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.
For a complete guide of wireless carriers waiving their fees, refer to the list below:
Virgin Mobile, the prepaid subsidiary of major US wireless carrier Sprint, has decided to introduce new unlimited plans that start at only $30 a month, and already come with unlimited voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and unlimited 2G data. Back in September of last year, Virgin Mobile had made changes to its prepaid plans, boosting the data of its unlimited plans while retaining the pricing. But the latest announcement from the wireless carrier brings even more cheaper prices for customers.
For reference, here are the pricing and full inclusions of the new plans:
Customers of Boost Mobile who are also music aficionados will no doubt be delighted with the wireless carrier’s latest announcement. The prepaid arm of Sprint has just decided to start offering unlimited music streaming (courtesy of five music streaming service providers) in all of its smartphone plans, absolutely free of charge.
For Boost Mobile customers, this means that they will be able to stream as much musical tracks as they can every month, without having to worry about the music streaming eating away at their plan’s data allotment. So which music streaming service providers are onboard? These include the following:
Virgin Mobile, a mobile virtual network operator that uses Sprint’s network, has announced that it has increased the high speed data inclusions on its most in demand unlimited plans. The great thing about this is that customers will be able to enjoy more than double the data at the same regular price.
Last summer, Virgin Mobile debuted its Custom plans at Walmart and in the process launched one of the most flexible prepaid family plans ever in America. Through technology supplied by ItsOn, subscribers could choose specific buckets of call minutes, text messaging and megabytes, and then share them with the family. They could even customize phone plans for social media and navigation services.
