Another unlimited prepaid carrier emerges: Lightyear Wireless

While the big carriers have been touting their unlimited voice, messaging, and data services for a while now, a number of smaller carriers, including MVNOs of the larger carriers, have been making an impression as well. Over the past six months or so we’ve introduced a number of carriers going for this, including PlatinumTel and Simple Mobile (which will have a page this week). The latest into the fray is Lightyear Wireless. The company, which resells a number of communications services, will now offer flat-rate prepaid cellular services, using the Sprint nationwide network.

The service will cost a bit more than the $50 standard that Boost Mobile set last year. It will be $59.99 per month, though the plan includes nothing more than Boost’s does. It does appear that a number of different phones are available for the service, though it’s not much of an upgrade over Boost’s selection. What stands out in Lightyear’s lineup is the BlackBerry Curve 8330, which goes for $424.99. All of their phones, however, come with unlimited talk and text for the first 30 days.
