Just few days ago, we were writing about MetroPCS upgrading 20 percent of its 1xRTT network to EV-DO in their attempt to hold on to the customers until they expand their LTE service. Thanks to their 4g LTE service, they are on the fifth place among prepaid providers. However, Cricket Wireless might just become more of a rival to the smaller providers like the Metro PCS by making the next step in going nationwide. Yes, Cricket expands nationwide. Read more
It is pointless to start the articles with how prepaid industry is not the same any more. We are well aware of what is going on and how things are progressing; pretty soon, the prepaid carriers will be offering iPhone4 (more likely by prepaid providers like Boost, Virgin Mobile and Straight Talk since they all offer unlimited service) or even prepaid tablets. Cricket, for example, planned to offer its customers a tablet this year, but due to the bad timing, recently gave up the idea. That just means that it will happen some time soon. If one carrier does it, it is going to cause chain reaction. But, for now, we are more than pleased with the latest prepaid smartphones offer since some good devices are released or announced to be available soon. Read more
A week ago, we were writing about expecting the Samsung Vitality to be released with Muve Music service for Cricket, and now it’s here. Now we know the price, it’s available for $179.99 after $20 instant rebate, which is reasonable price considering the access to unlimited source of music downloads, songs, ringtones, and ringback tones. Also, it is confirmed that the $65 Android Muve Music plan is required with unlimited music as well as talk, text and web with no additional costs.
Details on Muve Music
This time, Muve Music service is available with Samsung Vitality, instead with a feature phone Samsung Suede, the first Muve Music phone that had some flaws from the start. However, the new handset is an Android-based midrange smartphone but still the one that runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which makes the second Muve Music phone a welcome sight. Even so, there are still some issues that need to be addressed in order for users to know what to expect. Read more
Just a week ago, Cricket Wireless released the new feature phone, Samsung Comment, perfect for messaging. Right now, we are expecting the new release from this carrier, again. This time, we are talking about a smartphone, much alike as the Samsung Admire (Samsung Admire / Vitality), also recently released by Metro PCS. By the way, this is not the first time that cell phones coming from these two carriers are actually the same handsets. Samsung Comment is identical as Samsung Freeform III, part of Metro PCS lineup, with differences only based on being part of a different carrier. Read more
