It looks like there is going to be a new addition to the already extensive list of mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) already operating in the United States. TracFone is launching Total Wireless, a new prepaid brand that will be available exclusively from retail giant Walmart.
Total Wireless is expected to offer low-price plans that individual users and families or groups can take advantage of. Because it is an MVNO, the prepaid carrier will reportedly be utilizing Verizon's nationwide network.
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.
This year's Cyber Monday has gone and passed, but apparently not for Walmart. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Walmart's cell phone brand Straight Talk is still offering big discounts for a number of smartphones.
Apple's iPhone 5C, one of last year's most in-demand devices and still selling quite well this year, is being offered at a price of $299. For a device of this quality, $299 is a very good deal, especially when you consider that the recently released iPhone 6 Plus is priced at $749 at Walmart.
