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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Xfinity Mobile started taking in customers just over a week ago and will have its first exclusive phone (for the time being, anyway) from LG soon.
If one cable company wanted to acquire a wireless operator, say T-Mobile, it would have to get permission from the other.
The battle for rural wireless customers continues as the largest MVNO conglomerate in the US, TracFone, gobbles one more service up.
The Sprint virtual network operator is offering competitive fixed-price options for buckets of talk time, texts and data.
One of the worst parts about buying a smartphone is the monthly plan, so we tried out TextNow Wireless. Here are our thoughts on the MVNO 2 weeks in!
