Sprint iPhone will have Unlimited Data Plan

In a confirmation that comes less than 24 hours after the first announcement that Sprint would finally, at long last, get their own set of iPhone devices, the 3rd largest mobile carrier in the USA has announced that they'd be working with unlimited data plans for the release. It's been confirmed that these unlimited plans would be starting at just $69.99 and would include unlimited data and 450 voice minutes plus unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling. Look like the deal for you?

iPhone 4S data speeds to be faster on AT&T

iPhone 4S data speeds to be faster on AT&T

If you're considering the iPhone 4S, you now have three of the four major US carriers to choose from, with the nation's third largest being added to the mix that currently includes AT&T and Verizon. Since the iPhone 4S is now a dual-band world phone, the same model will be available to all three carriers, making the choice more a matter of network preference. However, Apple has given AT&T a bit of an advantage.

Say Hello to the iPhone 4S

All the rumors and speculation have finally ended today regarding the next iPhone, as you all already know it will be the iPhone 4S -- no 5 here. While just about everyone and their dogs were watching the news as it unfolded, us included, the Apple site has been overwhelmed all day, pages keep disappearing for updates most likely.

iPhone 4S prices revealed, now on Sprint

iPhone 4S prices revealed, now on Sprint

This week at the iPhone event in California, the iPhone 4S was revealed and a whole new set of prices were let loose for the whole iPhone series. In addition, it was revealed that the iPhone would now be carried by AT&T, Verizon AND Sprint. This is a first for the third carrier. Prices on these devices are surprisingly low considering past prices of iPhones, but given the fact that the smallest iPod Touch is now just $199, we suppose this is right in line: the 16GB iPhone 4S is also $199 USD on a 2-year contract with any of the three major carriers.

iPhone 5 may cause Sprint to bet the farm

iPhone 5 may cause Sprint to bet the farm

If there's one measure of a device's popularity and success, it's the willingness of a single company to bet their entire livelihood on future sales. That's quite possibly what's happening right this second behind the scenes at Sprint, where the 3rd largest mobile carrier in America appears to be making a multibillion dollar deal with Apple which will score them an exclusive deal with the iPhone 5. Sound like a possibility? Would Apple be swayed by $20 billion dollars from the pockets of Sprint, a deal that wouldn't even have Sprint breaking even until 2014? We shall see!

Sprint LTE rollout tipped for early 2012

Sprint LTE rollout tipped for early 2012

Sprint took a big risk when it chose existing WiMax tech for its 4G networks. The hope was that the WiMax networks would already be widely available before the roll out of LTE started giving Sprint a leg up in the 4G race. That leg up never happened and LTE and WiMax are now fighting on even footing in many markets. Sprint had announced a while back that it was looking at rolling out its own LTE networks along with WiMax tech.

Sprint: OMG! We’re keeping unlimited data! Don’t leave!

Sprint: OMG! We’re keeping unlimited data! Don’t leave!

Let's face it; the only thing keeping a bunch of subscribers from vacating Sprint in droves is the fact that the carrier is still offering unlimited data. Not too long ago Sprint announced that it was putting a cap on the data plan for its hotspots. The cap Sprint put on hotspot data usage was 5GB with some very steep overage fees if you wanted to use more. I would wager a bunch of subscribers saw the unlimited data use on the hotspots changing to capped use as a bit of writing on the wall.
