ROK Mobile To Cease Service On T-Mobile And Sprint From Dec. 18
Multi-carrier MVNO ROK Mobile that operates on T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon networks has announced on their website that service provided by T-Mobile and Sprint will no longer be available. ROK Mobile plans to cease service on these two networks on December 18, 2015. Affected customers are already getting messages with this information explaining them what their options are.
Since after this date ROK Mobile will operate only on Verizon network, customers who are currently on T-Mobile and Sprint will have two options. First, if they want to stay with ROK Mobile, they will have to switch to Verizon-based service but their current phone will not be usable. Since carrier is well aware of that, they have decided to provide a $50 credit that’s already been sent to users. The credit is expected to be available to users within the next 3-5 business days.
In addition to a $50 credit, ROK Mobile is offering a free month of service valued at $50 to those who decide to stay ROK Mobile’s subscriber. But in order to stay with ROK, customers will have to sign up for service with a new email address. The old one cannot be used any longer.
Customers who are currently on T-Mobile and Sprint networks and don’t want to change their device will have to switch to another carrier that their device is compatible with.
Since the launch of its operations in 2014, ROK’s been using T-Mobile and Sprint network to provide service. Only recently, in July 2015, the carrier has added the third partner. At the time, ROK wasn’t saying who that partner was but was referring to it as “the nation’s largest 4G LTE network”. Well, not only that we now know who the third partner is, but we also know that Verizon will remain the only ROK Mobile partner after December 18, too.
ROK Mobile is known for offering music streaming in addition to mobile service on only one plan. The $49.99 plan includes unlimited talk, text and 5GB of 4G LTE data plus music streaming service with access to more than 20 million songs for download and streaming.
