Wondering if brash T-Mobile US CEO John Legere will be out of a job after Sprint gobbles up the scrappy rival carrier? According to Bloomberg, Legere may actually wind up installed as CEO of the combined company, leaving current Sprint CEO Dan Hesse cashing unemployment checks instead — presumably with a big severance package for his troubles. Just the mere thought of it is probably enough to give Verizon Wireless and AT&T nightmares...
After dipping its toes into the branded prepaid wireless market in a handful of cities, AT&T-owned Aio Wireless is going coast-to-coast next month, with a trio of LTE-powered plans starting at only $40 per month.
We've come a long way from the days when AT&T was the only carrier for the iPhone. Today Virgin's Mobile's no-contract iPhone 5 goes live, and in line with the news we heard some time back, you'll be able to find it at RadioShack for as low as $550. But that's not quite as impressive as the news that this offer makes no-contract iPhones available for the first time.
Apple continues to find ways to make the iPhone more accessible to cell phone users on a budget, teaming up with Walmart and Straight Talk to offer a no-contract handset with unlimited talk, text and data.
The announcement Thursday that Cricket Wireless had landed a plum deal as Apple’s sole prepaid carrier in the United States is now leading to speculation that it could be the first of many, with Boost Mobile fingered as next in line.
