Play Game Apps With Prepaid Plan

logo-playphone-hover

If you’ve ever wanted to try playing Angry Birds on your Android phone but you had a prepaid account, the options were slim. Soon, prepaid users of Sprint brands like Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will have access to PlayPhone, a gaming platform that allows users to purchase “play credits” to download and play games. The credits can be simply added to your bill and you can enjoy the fun apps and games you’ve always wanted to try without having to worry about adding a credit card or incurring incremental charges. And, when you add play credits to you bill, you can get them at a reduced price.

The new deal with PlayPhone was announced by July 22 and should be available to consumers soon, but I haven’t found a date anywhere about exactly when it will officially launch. According to this press release, Sprint is the first mobile company to offer game access designed specifically for the prepaid market. So fire up that phone and have fun!
