gophone

GoPhone, AT&T’s prepaid segment, has launched yet another promotion designed to get customers to switch to AT&T. For a limited time, customers who port their number to GoPhone from any non-AT&T carrier can get a free second month of service. This is a very common promotion, although it has not been offered in a few month.

Charge, a data-only Sprint MVNO, launched some experimental voice and text plans to compliment its data-only profile. However, it looks like the experiment has ended, and Charge has quietly phased out these plans in favor of sticking with a data-centric model.

Red Pocket Offers $10 Essential Plan on AT&T, Sprint

Red Pocket is one of the few MVNOs which offers plans from all four carriers, allowing its customers to have the most variety while still sticking with a company they are familiar with. While the company has always been a little uncompetitive when it comes to the higher-priced plans, I have to say that the most recent $10/month plan is actually pretty sweet.

Vs.

With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two popular companies, comparing plans and services to help you better decide.

Today, we’ll look at AT&T’s GoPhone and Cricket Wireless. These are two companies owned by AT&T and operating on its network, and they’re said to have the best value of prepaid companies on AT&T’s network, so I thought we could put them head to head. It seems that Cricket has more options available, and can appeal to the high and low data user, while GoPhone has fewer options with strange data allotments.

Here’s how they compare:

Wednesday App Review: Tap Tap Dash

Endless runner games, to me, are kind of outdated. Temple Runner was extremely popular and I don’t think there was a person with a smartphone who didn’t try their hand at it at least once. I know I did, and I’m normally not a big fan of time-wasting games. Since then, there haven’t really been any games that I felt really captured the same fun and challenging atmosphere. Most of them ramped up the difficulty either too quickly or too slowly, resulting in a game that was virtually unenjoyable. Tap Tap Dash, however, is the perfect mix of fun and challenging, and I’d say would give any app in its genre a run for its money.

In the last couple of years, we haven’t really seen anything super exciting out of Sprint’s prepaid carrier Virgin Mobile. The plans are out of date, the phones suck, and the company hasn’t seen any really good promotions in months. However, it looks like things may soon be changing for Virgin and Boost Mobile.

FAQ: How to Remote Wipe Your Android Phone

android

If you’re anything like me, you keep a lot of information on your phone. I don’t have any banking apps or anything, just for safety reasons, but I am logged into Google and have documents and things I’d rather other people not snoop through. While wiping the device is the obvious solution, if it’s lost or stolen this can be impossible. Luckily, Google has you covered, and you can remotely wipe your device.

ECO Mobile, an MVNO operating on 3 of the 4 main carrier networks, recently increased data allotments on most of it’s plans. This is just after the company added two new plans, geared toward the low data user, so it looks like ECO Mobile is now trying to appeal to the high data user as well.
