Upset with the cost of getting a decent amount of data per month? One of the founders of Skype, Niklas Zennstrom, wants to save you hundreds of dollars of year with his new service called FreedomPop which opens for business today. Users of the service get .5GB of high speed data free per month and can purchase more capacity at a price of $10 for 1GB or $35 for 5GB of additional data. As a comparison, the nation's largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, charges $80 for 6GB of data monthly, plus a $40 smartphone connection fee that includes unlimited calls and texts.Unlike the major carriers that make money from selling you a monthly plan, FreedomPop plans on profiting by offering additional services such as a feature called Turboboost which guarantees that you will have the fastest service available even when its pipelines are jammed. Signing up with the service requires you to pay $99 for a sleeve that fits over an Apple iPhone 4S, Apple iPhone 4, Apple iPod Touch or pay a deposit for a … [Read more...] about FreedomPop wants to be your data network and save you hundreds of dollars a year

Can't complain about 500MB of free data though. posted on 11 Mar 2015, 12:57 1 6. downphoenix (Posts: 3165; Member since: 19 Jun 2010) This is actually a good thing for a small data amount, if it was a faster carrier that 500MB could be gone before you know it. posted on 11 Mar 2015, 15:44 2 9.

Just got a Sprint iPhone 6 from work in a Spark market and speeds have been consistently 20-50 Mbps with peaks north of 70mbps, depending on which LTE band you are connected to.

For the most part, phones sold by carriers are locked in a way that prevents their use on a competitor's network – that's how a carrier ensures that you stick with their service for the duration of your contract. The practice has been around for decades and is common among wireless carriers worldwide, U.S. service providers included. Unlocking a phone tied to a U.S. carrier, however, just got a whole lot easier as new rules regarding carrier-locked handsets went into effect on February 11, 2015. Long story short, you may now ask your service provider to unlock your phone. But there's fine print, of course, and you have to meet certain criteria before having your handset unshackled. Why would I want to unlock my device?Locked phones can only be used on the network of the carrier that locked them. Once unlocked, a phone (or even a cellular-enabled tablet) can connect to any carrier's frequency-compatible network, once provided with a working SIM card. This enables subscribers … [Read more...] about How to unlock a phone locked to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile
