NET10 to start offering the Samsung Galaxy S2 soon?

by: Bams SadewoAugust 9, 2012

Duking it out with major wireless carriers doesn’t come easy for a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MNVO) like Net10, as newer and more attractive handsets are usually confined to exclusivity. If you have been eyeing on making that jump to prepaid service, but aren’t quite enthralled by NET10’s Android lineup, you’ll be pleased to know that Samsung’s flagship phone (in 2011) is apparently heading to NET10.

As reported by Phandroid, NET10 may start adding the Samsung Galaxy S2 to its lineup in the coming weeks. Nothing is set in stone yet and you won’t see details of the Samsung Galaxy S2 on NET10’s website. What they do have is a leaked user manual of the Samsung [...]

More Americans decide to go prepaid. Are you one of them?

T-Mobile introduces new pricing structure for prepaid mobile broadband plans

by: Shea HarrisMay 20, 2012

It looks like T-Mobile USA is getting proactive in their attempts to mitigate the quarterly loss of postpaid subscribers. The number four mobile carrier in the nation has announced a new pricing structure for their prepaid mobile broadband service that should give customers a better bang for their buck.

T-Mobile lost 510,000 contract customers last quarter, so finding other ways to stay competitive has become a priority for the company. They gained almost 250,000 prepaid customers and 262,000 mobile-to-mobile customers during the quarter. While promising, it seems they are banking on the new pricing structure to further jumpstart the growth of prepaid customers.
