The SUBWAY restaurant chain today announced that it will launch NFC-based mobile payments nationwide on October 1st with Softcard, the mobile commerce joint venture created by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA, Inc. and Verizon Wireless. Softcard users can use their mobile phones to experience a new way to pay and save at more than 26,000 SUBWAY locations in the United States. This is one of the largest deployments of mobile payment capability in the country.

Softcard and the SUBWAY brand are also teaming up to deliver offers to SUBWAY customers via the Softcard app. As part of this promotion, Softcard users that tap and pay at a SUBWAY restaurant will receive $1 back on every purchase over $1 made with the American Express Serve card through year-end*.

This national launch is the extension of a relationship that began in 2013 and included a successful pilot in Salt Lake City earlier this year. The relationship will continue beyond today’s announcement to include the SUBWAY loyalty program.

“Softcard has proven to be a valuable partner to us and we are proud to extend our relationship with them,” said Carman Wenkoff, Chief Information Officer, for the SUBWAY chain. “As we’ve worked together to implement and pilot this technology, we’ve been impressed with the Softcard team and opportunities available through the Softcard platform. By embracing mobile payments and loyalty with Softcard’s SmartTap™ technology, we’re making it easier for customers to enjoy smart choices on the go.”

GameStop To Offer Cricket Wireless Service In U.S.

September 9, 2014 8:14 PM | AT&T | Comments (0)

 One store, one stop, one retail destination for gaming, wireless and entertainment technology. Today, Cricket Wireless and GameStop Corp., a family of specialty retail brands that makes customers favorite technologies affordable and simple, announced a new strategic retail relationship that will offer Cricket Wireless’ no-annual contract service in more than 2,800 GameStop U.S. store locations.

After a successful trial in select markets, the two national brands have come together to offer value conscious customers the latest wireless/mobile, video game and entertainment technology they want at a great value.

Starting next month, GameStop will begin selling Cricket Wireless no-annual contract service and the latest smartphone devices and accessories.  Both companies expect the phased rollout to be completed by the end of October.

“GameStop is committed to providing our customers the greatest value and service to meet all their video game, technology and now wireless needs,” said Tony Bartel, president of GameStop. “By offering Cricket Wireless service in our stores, we provide yet another great offering for our customers to get their favorite technology simply and affordably.”

The uniqueness of the strategic relationship builds on the strengths and benefits of both retailers. Cricket Wireless delivers customers value with a 4G network covering more than 98% of Americans, more 4G LTE coverage than Sprint, Boost, T-Mobile and MetroPCS, and plans starting at $35 a month after $5 AutoPay* credit with taxes and fees included.

“Cricket Wireless’ collaboration with GameStop accelerates our retail footprint across the U.S., solidifying our position as a national player” said Jennifer Van Buskirk, president of Cricket Wireless. “We are proud to join forces with GameStop and serve even more customers across the country with our affordable no-annual contract wireless service on a fast, reliable and nationwide 4G LTE network covering more than 300 million Americans.”

GameStop delivers an industry leading buy-sell-trade program that offers customers a way to have more money to spend on games, accessories and more. Customers will be able to sell GameStop their existing phones, video games systems, and other electronic devices to save big on the purchase of a new Cricket phone – customers will have more money to spend on other products inside GameStop stores.

Sprint Strikes Back with Improved Phone Trade-in Program

September 9, 2014 8:12 PM | Sprint Nextel | Comments (0)

 
 Today Sprint announced it will meet or beat all competitors’ pricing to ensure the best trade-in values. Sprint will match all major U.S. carrier buyback pricing (Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile) on all new lines of service starting immediately. Last year, Sprint put more than $100 million back in customers’ pockets with their award-winning phone trade-in program, Sprint Buyback.

For the past three years, Sprint has been recognized by Compass Intelligence, a leading market analytics and consulting firm, as having the best phone trade-in program among all major U.S. carriers. Sprint’s commitment and reputation for providing the best trade-in value highlights the carrier’s commitment to the program. This new program will enhance their reputation and maintain their leadership position.

“Sprint remains the leader in mobile phone trade in programs,” said Kate Pearce strategist and senior consultant at Compass Intelligence. ”They’ve been leading the industry for the past few years by offering the best value and convenience to their customers. They’ve been doing an in-store take back program longer than anyone else and they’ve mastered how to make the program a win-win for their customers and their business.”

Today, Sprint offers are better than competitors in many ways such as providing an instant credit in-store and up to $300 for eligible devices (toward a new phone purchase OR an account credit). Sprint also allows customers to trade-in up to three phones per line at any time and five in a calendar year. T-Mobile, on the other hand, only allows one phone trade-in per line and only allows customers to trade-in their phone when purchasing a new device. Sprint customers can take advantage of the trade-in credit at any time – whether they are buying a new phone, looking to purchase new accessories or want to use their trade-in credit towards their bill.

Apple Announces iOS 8 Available September 17

September 9, 2014 8:08 PM | Apple | Comments (0)

apple-os8.PNG

Apple today announced iOS 8, the biggest release since the launch of the App Store, will be available starting Wednesday, September 17 to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users as a free software update. iOS 8 delivers a simpler, faster and more intuitive user experience with new Messages and Photos features, predictive typing for Apple’s QuickType keyboard and Family Sharing. iOS 8 also includes the new Health app, giving you a clear overview of your health and fitness data and iCloud Drive, so you can store files and access them from anywhere. With more than 4,000 new APIs, iOS 8 allows developers to further customize the user experience with major extensibility features and robust frameworks such as HealthKit and HomeKit.

“We’re excited for hundreds of millions of users to begin experiencing iOS 8, with incredible features that offer new ways to use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “iOS 8 also creates an extraordinary environment for developers, providing them the ability to create amazing new apps like never before.”

Messages in iOS 8 makes conversations more immersive. Simply Tap to Talk to share your voice. The same gesture also works for sharing photos and videos. Users can now share several photos and videos at once and easily browse through all of them within a conversation from one place. Group messaging gives you the ability to add and remove contacts, and the option not to be disturbed or to leave a conversation entirely. You can also choose to share your current location from within Messages for an hour, a day or longer.

In iOS 8, the Photos app brings powerful editing to your fingertips. Photos automatically straightens horizons, and with smart editing tools you can quickly adjust light and color with a swipe. For deeper fine-tuning, you can access individual tools to adjust exposure, brightness, contrast, highlights, shadows and more. Developers can tap into the same robust framework as the built-in Photos app using PhotoKit, and with extensibility APIs, can make their own filters and editing tools available to users within the Photos app.

New predictive typing for Apple’s QuickType keyboard is smarter, more personalized and intelligently takes context into account, such as who the recipient is and in which app you’re typing. QuickType understands the way you communicate, suggesting favorite phrases, so you can write entire sentences with just a few taps. What the QuickType keyboard learns is kept private, encrypted on your device and never sent to the cloud. Third-party keyboards are also available, so developers can offer additional layouts and input methods system-wide, providing users more choice.

Apple Announces Apple Pay

September 9, 2014 8:06 PM | Apple | Comments (0)

Apple today announced Apple Pay, a new category of service that will transform mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay. Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus through a groundbreaking NFC antenna design, a dedicated chip called the Secure Element, and the security and convenience of Touch ID. Apple Pay is easy to set up, so hundreds of millions of users can simply add their credit or debit card on file from their iTunes Store account. Apple Pay will also work with the newly announced Apple Watch, extending Apple Pay to over 200 million owners of iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s worldwide.

Apple Pay supports credit and debit cards from the three major payment networks, American Express, MasterCard and Visa, issued by the most popular banks including Bank of America, Capital One Bank, Chase, Citi and Wells Fargo, representing 83 percent of credit card purchase volume in the US.* In addition to the 258 Apple retail stores in the US, some of the nation’s leading retailers that will support Apple Pay include Bloomingdale’s, Disney Store and Walt Disney World Resort, Duane Reade, Macy’s, McDonald’s, Sephora, Staples, Subway, Walgreens and Whole Foods Market. Apple Watch will also work at the over 220,000 merchant locations across the US that have contactless payment enabled. Apple Pay is also able to make purchases through apps in the App Storeā„ .

“Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you’re using Apple Pay in a store, restaurant or other merchant, cashiers will no longer see your name, credit card number or security code, helping to reduce the potential for fraud,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Apple doesn’t collect your purchase history, so we don’t know what you bought, where you bought it or how much you paid for it. And if your iPhone is lost or stolen, you can use Find My iPhone to quickly suspend payments from that device.”
