It's a New Day for Unlimited Data

August 25, 2014 9:38 PM | Sprint Nextel | Comments (0)

 
It's a new day for unlimited data in the wireless industry as Sprint (NYSE: S) announces the best unlimited wireless plan available from a national carrier with the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan. This plan provides consumers unlimited talk, text and data while on America’s Newest Network for just $60 per month, a $20 savings compared to T-Mobile's $80 per month unlimited plan. Simple, easy, affordable – the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan is available to both new and existing Sprint customers starting tomorrow, August 22. To qualify for the plan, customers must purchase their device through Sprint Easy Pay, pay full retail price or bring their own compatible device.

Whether communicating via email or text, socializing via picture-sharing or tweeting, or navigating with GPS, consumers rely on their smartphones for all of their daily needs. Last year U.S. wireless consumers devoured 3.23 trillion MB of data, according to CTIA’s annual survey1, which equates to watching more than 153 billion five minute cat videos on YouTube, or streaming more than 53.8 billion hours of music on Spotify. Meanwhile, millions of American consumers restrict their usage, fearful of data limits with overage charges. With the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, consumers no longer have to worry about high bills based on how much data they are using. Enjoying daily life with the unlimited support of a smartphone has never been so easy.

“People know Sprint for Unlimited,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “We have long been the leader in offering customers unlimited data and that leadership continues today with our new $60 unlimited plan. Unlimited talk, text and data for $60 is the best unlimited postpaid plan available. And, we’ve listened to our loyal customers; we’re making the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan available to both new and existing customers.”

Sprint’s new everyday price of $60 a month for unlimited saves customers $480 over two years against T-Mobile’s $80 everyday pricing. And, customers can save $120 over two years versus T-Mobile’s promotional price…and they don’t have to jump through T-Mobile’s hoops and recruit their friends.

Top 5 Reasons T-Mobile and Metro PCS Customers Should Switch Now to Cricket Wireless

August 25, 2014 9:32 PM | MetroPCS | T-Mobile | Comments (0)


Cricket Wireless is offering T-Mobile and Metro PCS customers a $100 bill credit and five great reasons to switch. The $100 bill credit* offer is available from Aug. 24 to Oct. 19, 2014, at Cricket stores nationwide and online.  There is no limit on the number of lines a customer can switch to Cricket, receiving a $100 bill credit for each line transferred.

The new Cricket Wireless experience offers customers:
  • More 4G LTE coverage than T-Mobile and Metro PCS, period
  • Taxes and fees included – no surprises, the price you see is the price you pay
  • A free smartphone every year with Cricket Rewards**
  • Plans starting at $35 a month after $5 credit for using auto pay ***
  • No annual contracts
With Cricket's simple affordable pricing plans, a $100 bill credit equals more than two months of free service with the Basic Plan at $35 (after a $5 credit for using auto pay) and the Smart Plan at $45 (after a $5 auto pay credit). Customers who sign up with the Pro Plan at $55 (after $5 auto pay credit) get the equivalent of nearly two months of service free.

T-Mobile Quadruples Simple Starter Data With New Option

August 25, 2014 9:29 PM | T-Mobile | Comments (0)

Today, T-Mobile again set a new bar for Americans looking for better value in wireless.  The Un-carrier announced a new option for Simple Starter customers to quadruple their data to a full 2 GB of LTE data, for just $5 per month.
 
Back in May, the Un-carrier made waves with the Simple Starter plan, an entry-level solution with unlimited talk and text, and 500 MB of LTE data for just $40.  Starting September 3, these customers can get a whopping 2 GB of LTE data for only $5 extra per month – and still no annual service contract and no domestic overages.
 
By comparison, other entry-level plans come with data overages that penalize customers for using more data.
 
“People who use loads of data use T-Mobile,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “And it’s no wonder. The old guard telecoms punish people for using more data on their networks with crazy overage charges and fees. Get Verizon’s $50 plan and use just one gig more data, and the price jumps to $65. It’s crazy. At T-Mobile, we designed our network data-strong so our customers could use the hell out of it.  And that’s just what they’re doing.”
 
Over the past year alone, the average American’s mobile data use has surged, and with America’s fastest nationwide LTE network, the Un-carrier is in a unique position to satisfy the growing demand for fast mobile data. T-Mobile has more network capacity per customer−and a remarkable 70 percent more network spectrum per customer than even Verizon−with its network concentrated in the places people need data the most.

From entry-level to premium, LG has been actively working to provide a consistent and uniform user experience (UX) across its entire mobile product lineup. Toward that end, LG Electronics (LG) will begin standardizing its proprietary UX features, first introduced in the new LG G3, across most of the company’s mid- to entry-level smartphones and tablets launched in the second half of this year.

Since its worldwide unveiling in May, the LG G3’s UX features have been positively received by both customers and industry experts with many bestowing high praise for its user-friendly enhancements. The 2014 Red Dot Communication Design Award judges also applauded the LG G3, with a total of three “Best of the Best” awards for its intuitive UX features.

“With the basic principles of the G3’s UX features rooted in making complex technologies simple and convenient, our goal was to provide consumers with a user experience they genuinely need and want,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Standardizing these features across our entry- and mid-tier mobile products is just a natural extension of our desire to make every LG device feel premium and unique.”

Sharp's First AQUOS Smartphone Comes to Sprint

August 20, 2014 6:39 PM | Sprint Nextel | Comments (0)

 
Sharp selected Sprint to launch its first AQUOS wireless phone available in the United States, Sharp AQUOS Crystal.

This launch marks a monumental step in the Sprint and SoftBank merger by bringing this device to SoftBank in Japan and Sprint and its prepaid brands, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA, as the exclusive U.S. carriers for this groundbreaking device.

AQUOS Crystal breaks the mold of traditional smartphone design. From its stunning picture quality and immersive, vibrant display to its sleek, 5-inch edge-to-edge HD screen, AQUOS Crystal revolutionizes the mobile phone experience. The chic, compact exterior houses a smartphone powered by Android 4.4.2 KitKat and supported by the ultra-fast Sprint Spark network. Showcasing incredible audio with Harman Kardon technologies and HD voice, and a camera that can make any amateur look like a pro, AQUOS Crystal is truly technology without bounds.

Sprint will offer AQUOS Crystal in two color options (black or white). With Sprint Easy Pay, well-qualified buyers can purchase AQUOS Crystal with $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $101 (service plan is required). Customers can visit www.sprint.com/sharp for more information. Sharp AQUOS Crystal will be available in black at www.virginmobileusa.com and in white at www.BoostMobile.com, both for $149.99 (plus tax). Exact availability will be announced at a later date.

“The combined power of SoftBank and Sprint will bring our customers this high-end device for an extraordinarily value,” said David Owens, senior vice president-Product Development for Sprint. “We are thrilled to welcome Sharp to the U.S. wireless market. AQUOS Crystal will quickly become a must-have smartphone, showcasing Sharp’s strength in display technology.”

In addition, AQUOS Crystal boasts Harman’s Clari-Fi™ technology with the ability to restore and “rebuild” music fidelity lost during audio compression. Clari-Fi yields richer, deeper and clearer sound quality for compressed digital music (like MP3 downloads or streaming services such as Spotify). The Clari-Fi experience includes low and high frequency extension, improved realism and fidelity, and wider sound stage.

ZTE Committed to Intellectual Property Protection

August 20, 2014 6:36 PM | Interesting | Comments (0)

zte_logo.jpg
ZTE Corporation, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, welcomes the final determination of the United States International Trade Commission to reject the patent complaints of InterDigital Inc.

InterDigital’s case alleging violations of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 was terminated by the ITC, which upheld an initial determination made in June. In December 2013, the ITC issued its final determination in favor of ZTE in an earlier complaint filed by InterDigital. During the past year, the ITC also ruled in favor of ZTE in Section 337 cases initiated by Technology Properties Limited LLC and FlashPoint Technology Inc.

“We are pleased by the decision reached by the ITC,” said Guo Xiaoming, Chief Legal Officer of ZTE. “As a globally-leading technology innovator, ZTE respects the intellectual property of other companies, and we are committed to working with all stakeholders to resolve any IPR disputes amicably and rationally.”

Recognizing the rapid growth of ultra-affordable mobile phones, Microsoft Devices Group on Monday unveiled the Nokia 130, a mobile phone designed to introduce millions of people to new digital experiences. At just 19 euros,* the Nokia 130 combines the everyday essentials that first-time mobile phone buyers expect with the beautiful design, reliability and mobile entertainment they want. Featuring a built-in video player, music player with up to 46 hours continuous playback on a single charge, and everyday essentials such as a flashlight, FM radio and USB charging, the Nokia 130 is the perfect introduction to a “mobile first” world.

The Nokia 130 is an ideal handset for first-time mobile phone buyers, or for people seeking a reliable backup phone to complement their existing smartphones. It’s built to last, with a 1.8-inch color display and outstanding battery life of up to 36 days’ standby for the single-SIM variant and 26 days’ standby for the dual-SIM device. In design and quality, the Nokia 130 stands out among devices priced below $35.* Every year, people buy 300 million phones from this category alone.**

As one of the most affordable mobile phones with video playback, the Nokia 130 makes new digital experiences accessible to more people. It delivers hours of entertainment with the built-in video player that offers up to 16 hours of playback for video stored on a microSD card, MP3 player and FM radio. With support for expandable microSD storage up to 32GB, alongside the Bluetooth-enabled SLAM application and USB connectivity, it also makes sharing digital content easy without the need for an Internet connection.

“As demand in the affordable mobile segment continues to grow, Microsoft remains committed to delivering market-leading mobile innovation at each and every price point,” said Jo Harlow, corporate vice president for Phones, Microsoft Corp. “It is estimated that at least 1 billion people in the world still do not have a mobile phone, while at the same time there is increasing demand for reliable backup phones in both mature and high-growth markets.”

She continued, “With handsets like the Nokia 130, we see tremendous potential to deliver the experience of a ‘mobile-first’ world to people seeking their first device, and we continue to invest in ultra-affordable devices that will introduce people to a ‘cloud-first’ world through Microsoft services such as Bing, Outlook.com and OneDrive.”

Push to Talk Plus Now Available on Select 4G LTE Devices from Verizon Wireless

August 7, 2014 9:22 PM | Verizon | Comments (1)


 
PTT-Push%20to%20Talk%20-%20Verizon.PNG

Many businesses work in a fast-paced world where plans change frequently or new information needs to be shared among groups. Being able to communicate instantly -- with a push of a button -- while also having access to a 4G LTE network is key for employers and business owners.

Push to Talk Plus is now available for Verizon Wireless customers, with enhancements such as improved voice quality and faster call set up time, on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The service is powered by Kodiak Networks, a global industry leader in push-to-talk platforms.

Hosting a conference call with employees and attempting to speak to more than 30 other people can be frustrating. Push to Talk Plus has a Talker Priority feature that allows the initiator to override a group call and be the only speaker everyone hears. Leaders can take control of the call and help maintain efficiency across the team.

There may be times where an employee cannot join a group call the moment it begins, which could lead to miscommunication. The Late Join feature on Push to Talk Plus lets that person join the group call late so they aren’t missing the whole conversation. And the Rejoin feature lets people drop and rejoin ongoing group calls, an option that comes in handy for those busy workers who may need to quickly speak to a client during a group call. Users also have the option to use Push to Talk over Wi-Fi.
