If Sprint and T-Mobile are allowed to merge, prospective CEO John Legere would allow smaller carriers to use its network at current rates forever.
Want to take your phone onto Google's wireless network? Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus, Nokia, Essential Phones and, yes, iPhones are now being accepted.
Google may officially adopt iPhones, Sony phones, Samsung Galaxy phones and even OnePlus phones soon with a huge network-side upgrade.
As the perceived odds go up, stakeholders who are at risk from the impacts of a merger are staking their positions at the FCC.
Some networking features will make using iPhones on this prepaid carrier a little more fresh like calls over LTE or Wi-Fi and texting on Wi-Fi.
After only supporting a limited number of devices fitted for Sprint, the new prepaid carrier can now accept most unlocked phones.
Just like Comcast's own Xfinity Mobile, the service is offer on top of Verizon's LTE network and a mesh of free Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation.
Comcast is pulling the purse strings tight on cellular data partly, we presume, to make up costs to Verizon for access to its network and also for profit.
Sprint's deal for switchers was low, sweet and so far gone. So, what's left for bargain seekers in the cellular space? FreedomPop's UNREAL Mobile, perhaps.
The $100 goes to more than a month's worth of service on the Google carrier, but if you're thinking the prices on these phones are steep, there are options.
The South Korean carrier recently unearthed a whole crate of iPhone 3GS devices that never got sold. They're now $40 apiece.
The promotion will have only lasted about one week. Sprint originally messaged its intention for it to last for a good part of the summer.
The carrier may be fighting against FreedomPop and a new project it is launching that also aims to run $15 a month unlimited data plans.
Project Fi is now allowing kids to hop into their parents' accounts while parents keep tabs on their app and data usage through the Family Link app.
There's probably a Snapdragon 1000 on the way and you might want to stick around and see where it will appear. Also, the Pixel 3 will be made by Google... for reals... sorta.
Google's carrier finally swings a few more phones that aren't of its own make. They join last year's Android One Moto X4.
Prepaid operators are concerned about wholesale data prices from the big players going up with the merger of Sprint and T-Mobile. FreedomPop wants to poke a hole in that fear.
The carrier intends for kids to connect with their parents more, not to a screen full of games, distractions and harmful content. It's low-maintenance and relatively low cost.
It's in early access and requires a code to join in for $40 per month service. There's unlimited data, but with some asterisks.
That's an addition of at least 30 territories to the list. Project Fi subscribers are also able to get notified of upcoming travel support.
Google is in a bit of a legal pickle due to alleged violations of competition and advertising laws with Project Fi, as well as well-documented microphone flaws on first-gen Pixel phones.
If you can live with throttling after 15GB of usage in a month, Google's MVNO isn't providing too bad of a deal here. Individuals will only be charged for the first 6GB on a prorated basis.
Google's Project Fi announced that the over-the-air update is now being distributed in waves and in time for the end of the year.
