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.
A new report takes a look at why prepaid cell phones have failed to catch on in the United States, despite being a far cheaper option for many consumers. Could the iPhone make it a more enticing option?
Seems like day two at the Google I/O developer conference was more about iOS users today, with both Google Chrome and Google Drive apps finally making their way to the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. But that's not all this fine day has in store for you: Save big on Parallels Desktop 7, sign up for a Verizon Share Everything plan or celebrate Atari's 40th birthday -- it's all here for Thursday, June 28, 2012.
One thing’s for sure: Apple isn’t going to waste any time at Monday’s keynote talking about new carrier deals for the iPhone. As widely rumored earlier this week, Virgin Mobile has announced that it will begin selling the iconic handset on June 29.
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.
It's only taken five years since the original iPhone went on sale in 2007, but at long last, Apple’s iconic handset finally has a prepaid version available here in the U.S., thanks to Cricket Wireless and a new $55 per month unlimited plan.
For a smartphone introduced in 2009, the iPhone 3GS has had a remarkable lifespan. Instead of being put out to pasture this fall, It appears the handset could instead be headed for developing markets as a contract-free, prepaid device priced under $300.
It’s simply amazing how all over the place rumors of Apple’s next handset have become -- what’s news one morning often gets snuffed out later that day with a completely contradictory rumor. Such is the case with the iPhone 5, which may miss its fall debut completely due to production delays.
