It’s typically a smaller wireless carrier that offers inexpensive service plans but gets its network signals from a bigger company. ByJ. D. Biersdorfer Aug. 15, 2018 Q. How does the service and coverage compare for the smaller wireless carriers like Consumer Cellular, TracFone and others that never get mentioned because it’s always the same big networks like AT&T and Verizon getting reviewed? A. While AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon do indeed grab most of the attention, many of the smaller wireless carriers actually get their network service from one of the Big Four and resell it, often in the form of low-cost or prepaid plans. (U.S. Cellular is the fifth largest carrier in the country and mostly uses its own network.) A smaller … [Read more...] about The Mobile Virtual Network Operator Will Connect You Now
Samsung introduced the DeX system last year alongside the Galaxy S8 and S8+ with the DeX Station, a dock that looked like one of the company's wireless chargers. After a not-insignificant amount of leaking, the DeX Pad has been made official at Samsung's MWC event, and it improves upon the DeX Station by also removing the necessity for a keyboard and a trackpad. PreviousNext The DeX Pad isn't nearly as cool-looking as the DeX Station, but the design downgrade is worth it for the additional functionality. Now that your phone sits flat, it's able to be used as both a keyboard (dubbed "Touch Keyboard") and a trackpad ("Touch Pad"). While nobody really wants to be typing on their phone, it should be handy in a pinch, which, after all, is what the DeX system is really meant for. The DeX Pad is also capable of powering displays up to 2560x1440, whereas the DeX Station could only be used with displays up to 1080p. I/O is mostly the same as the DeX Station's, with two USB ports, a USB Type-C … [Read more...] about Samsung’s new DeX Pad is official, and it lets you use your Galaxy S9/S9+ as both a keyboard and a trackpad
After two earlier attempts failed to materialize, T-Mobile and Sprint announced on Sunday that they’ve reached a $26.5 billion merger agreement. If approved, it would combine the third and fourth largest carriers in the United States. The new business would instantly become a much more formidable rival to Verizon and AT&T. Both companies claim that a successful merger would make the United States a leader in the formative early years of 5G mobile networks. But there are very legitimate concerns that shrinking the field of wireless competitors could end up hurting consumers and raising prices. The deal must be cleared by regulators, including both the Federal Communications Commission and Justice Department, which is no small hurdle. FCC chairman Ajit Pai seems open to the idea, but many of the antitrust staffers at the DOJ today were the same people who convinced these two companies to abandon merger talks in 2014.

It used to be that going the virtual carrier (MVNO) route was the only way to get unlimited data at reasonable pricing on your favorite carrier of choice. Today's prepaid fight, however, is fought by the major carriers - Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint - leaving scraps for their MVNO offshoots. Still, they have reinvented themselves, and each is targeting a certain niche, either geographically, or with unorthodox amounts of data at rock bottom prices, too, in a way to differentiate from the big four. Well, the little guys usually ditch a few added features in the process, but those are of the type you might not be using on a regular basis anyway.We've compared the current offerings from a few major MVNOs (virtual operators that piggyback on the big four networks), and found out that in most cases there is a niche that is still unoccupied by the big players, and maybe there is one for you, too, so check out the current prepaid plan prices of MetroPCS, Cricket, Straight Talk, … [Read more...] about Best 2018 unlimited prepaid plan?
