  • Virgin Releases Cheaper Unlimited Plan
    Posted on December 8, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Just the other day Koodo announced that they would be releasing their $50 unlimited plan that covers usage anywhere within the nation. Because of fierce competition within the marketplace for the holiday season, companies have been slashing prices and changing plans to benefit their consumers. In order to keep up with the trend, Virgin announced today that they would be releasing their own $50 Unlimited “no zone” plan that is eerily similar to the plan that was announced by Koodo. You shouldn’t be surprised to see other companies follow suit in the coming days and offer a similar plan.


    The new Solo Mobile plan that was announced will include the ability to make unlimited local and international texts as well as picture messages, and will also come with call waiting and conference calling. the competing offer by Virgin Mobile will also offering unlimited local calling, and unlimited local and international texting but the announcement made no mention of pictures messages. There will be no zone restrictions in the new plan, but you will still be charged quite a bit extra under their current roaming plane.



    So far, their plan will not be compatible with unlocked iPhone 4, Blackberry’s or Android devices, which is something that they will likely have to add. The deal is obviously aimed at the lower end of the tech savvy crowd or the budget conscious consumer who only really needs unlimited texting to use their phone to its potential. With so many different mobile carriers slashing prices, it will be interesting to see if any other providers follow suit in the coming weeks and offer plans similar to those offered by Solo Mobile and Virgin Mobile.

  • US Cellular announced three new plans today that are available for individuals with prepaid unlocked phones. The announcement comes just in time for the 2010 holiday season and the plans will include unlimited text messaging along with three different sets of minute plans. You can purchase 200, 400 or 100 minutes for your US Cellular prepaid device. Each of the plans will cost $29, $39, or $49. Plans of 400 minutes and above will also come with a monthly 5 gigabyte data plan.


    As prepaid calling has become more popular in recent years because they do not require a contractual agreement, smaller providers have added increased features and new plans for these devices. In the beginning, many providers only offered one standard prepaid plan, but US Cellular has expanded to three plans that give their customers added flexibility.


    The 200 minute plan is for the occasional phone user who likely only user their phone when they are out and about. the 400 minute plan also includes unlimited texting and picture messaging with 5 gigabytes of browsing data, and is geared toward individuals that are looking for the smart phone experience without having to agree to a contract. The 100 minute plan also overs unlimited text and video messaging, and is the step before their $69.99 prepaid plan which is also compatible with various smart phones and allows unlimited incoming calls on nights and weekends.


    Many carriers, both in the contractual and pre-paid space have made changes to their offered plans in recent weeks just in time for the holiday season. The competitive nature of the industry forces these companies to constantly compete with each other by adding features or lowering their prices. It will be interesting to see if other prepaid providers follow suit and change their prices and plans following the US Cellular announcement.

  • White iPhone on the Horizon
    Posted on December 8, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The white unlocked iPhone 4, up until this point has seemed like a myth within the tech industry. It has long been rumored to be on the way but Apple has never seemed willing to pull the trigger and offer the device in any color but black. However, recent evidence suggests that perhaps we can expect to see the white iPhone available to consumers as early as Spring of 2011. It is something that has been highly anticipated by many of their users and will probably be a popular choice for many of their users who have been using the black version of the device for a number of years.


    The white iPhone was previously delayed due to production problems that dealt with the “home” button. Apple had only been manufacturing one kind of button, and the black button did not fit the theme of the white iPhone in the early stages of production so the entire idea was scrapped. Now, apparently they have fixed these issues and are planning on bringing the white iPhone to customers in Spring of 2011.



    On the in-store document that mentions the forthcoming release of the iPhone 4, there is no mention of the rumored release of the iPhone on Verizon. Of course, you wouldn’t expect them to leak a release as big as that on an in-store document, but the fact that they mentioned the now-mythical white iPhone on that same document is a little surprising. It is good to see that they have been able to fix their production issues and will be able to bring a white iPhone, something that many of their customers have been anxiously awaiting the release of for a number of years. Maybe after its release we will be able to see some interesting data regarding how many people make the switch from black to white iPhone 4 unlocked.

  • The Sony Playstation phone is a device that has been rumored to have been in development for a number of years now, but excited fans have not had any big announcements or reveals until recently when pictures of the alleged device made their way online. Now, fans who have anxiously awaited details regarding the Playstation phone finally have something to celebrate.


    The phone was spotted in a “secret” spy video that that made its way to the web today In the video you can see someone using the phone and it appears that they do not know that they are being filmed while they use it, although this is up to interpretation. Companies have been known to leak similar videos online to help build the hype for upcoming devices and it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that there is a similar case here as well.


    The quality of the video is fairly low so it is hard to see all of the features in crystal clear action, although a number of the rumored features have been confirmed through the video. You can see that the phone looks like any other phone device until you slide out the game pad that is used to help users control the games that will reportedly be available for the phone.


    The Playstation phone has been kept under tight wraps by Sony, but from what a number of sources have been able to surmise so far, the device will function as the next generation of the PSP and will be available on a number of different carriers if everything goes to plan. No games have been announced for the device but with videos and other details about the phone being made available online Sony should be preparing an official announcement here soon.

  • Car thieves have a lot more to worry about during the smart device era. There are a plethora of different devices that could potentially track the location of a car after it is stolen and thieves have to quickly disable these devices after making off with a car. With OnStar becoming increasingly popular in many different types of vehicles, stealing cars has never been so hard for these criminals.


    One solid example of how the car theft game has changed is a recent incident in which a man was tracked and arrested less than ten minutes after stealing a car. There was no OnStar or any other built in software that tracked the location, but the man had stolen the car with an unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android phone inside. Thanks to an appt hat was running on the device, the man who owned the car was able to log in to his application account and inform police of the exact location of the vehicle shortly after it was stolen. The man responsible for the theft was apprehended less than ten minutes after the theft took place.


    The application that saved the day was Lookout, an application that is most commonly used as an antivirus tool for phone devices. Luckily, the device also doubles as a phone finding tool, allowing users to log in and check a GPS map to help them locate a lost phone. This application came in handy for the man whose car was stolen, helping him to quickly locate his car and provide police with details regarding its location.


    This serves as one of a number of examples of how smart phone technology is thwarting everyday criminals. As these features expand, you can expect to hear more stories like this coming out. A small investment for his smart phone ended up saving the man in question all of the headaches that deal with locating a stolen car.

  • If you were to take a quick look at the T-Mobile support forums you would quickly notice that a large number of users have posted questions regarding the management of their pre-paid accounts, and problems that have run rampant over the course of the last few days. These users have reported that they have not been able to purchase $1.49 day passes for access to the Internet, a service that T-Mobile has promoted heavily over the course of the last few months.




    When the users attempt to make the purchase they are often provided with an error screen and find themselves unable to get through the shopping cart to the purchase screen. The fact that the prepaid phones can not access the Internet means that these unlocked phones are only able to call and text, which is not what was advertised to these individuals by T-Mobile when they made their purchase.



    Customer service has had a hard time keeping up with the complaints due to the holiday weekend and little help has been offered on the support forums. T-Mobile is aware of the situation and has stated on their forum on several occasions that they are working on finding an answer for the issues at hand. If the issue were to drag on for quite some time, users that require the use of the day passes on their unlocked mobile phones will likely look elsewhere for similar plans. The $1.49 mobile phone internet day pass has been one of the most popular features that T-Mobile has introduced in recent years.



    Hopefully they are able to get through their holiday back load and will fix this issue sooner rather than later so they do not lose their prepaid customer base that requires this feature. Forum moderators are attempting to reply to as many of the inquiries as they can but have a hard time keeping up with the incoming requests.

  • The BlackBerry 8980, the phone that was assumed to be the successor to the highly popular curve 8900 has received increased attention throughout the day after the FCC mistakenly made the user manual for the RIM handset available on their website, along with a number of different images of the device. In the process of posting the device on their website, they have also tipped the world off to all of the features that the phone will include. Although they have yet to comment on the fact that the phone was placed on their website, and have yet to confirm or deny whether or not it was purposely done, it is hard to believe that BlackBerry would be alright with them outing their features and look of their phone that is still in development before it even has a release date.


    The device has a quad band GSM antenna, along with Wi-fi support and a 3.2 megapixel camera that comes complete with flash. The user manual also exposed the fact that the phone will ship with the BlackBerry OS 5.Going off of looks alone, the device looks very similar to the BlackBerry 9700 unlocked, other than the type of keyboard that both phones have.


    It will be interesting to see how both BlackBerry and the FCC respond to the leak of not only the images of the phone, but the user manual and all of the features of the phone as well. Development of the phone has been known of for quite some time, but BlackBerry has been careful not to have too much information about the phone leak to the web in the final months of its development. Now that the FCC has seemingly exposed all of the great features that BlackBerry was hoping to excite fans with when the phone is released, there is a possibility that they could push the release date forward to preserve the hype that has surrounded the device.

  • The US Phone Carrier Sprint has announced that they will be extending their WiMAX Network to six more of the largest cities across the Untied States. The additional cities that the company has blanketed with the coverage include Los Angeles, Miami, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus and Washington DC. This makes 68 different cities that the WiMAX Network is available in. Sprint first started to roll  out the service earlier this year and it was already available in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and New York.


    They also announced that they would be looking to extend the network to a number of other markets in the coming weeks including San Francisco, which is the home of Silicon Valley and most of the tech industry.


    In order to use the new, faster network from Sprint you must have a device that is Sprint 4G enabled. WiMax stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is is considered to be one of the fastest networks currently available to US carriers with the capability to deliver up to 40 Mbit per second. It will be interesting to see if other companies adopt the network. Sprint has already reported increased speeds across all of their 4G devices which are able to use WiMAX and have decided to continue to spread the network in an effort to prepare for the upcoming generations of smart devices that will likely be able to make more use of the network than previous generations.


    It will be interesting to see how quickly the network begins to spread over the coming months. Sprint already has 68 markets that are WiMAX-enabled, and they have shown no signs of slowing down their operation to expand the network anytime soon. The move is one that will not only benefit the company, but will benefit their hundreds of thousands of customers as well.

  • Although spyware is mostly reserved for systems that run on a Windows platform, SecTheory, a security firm suggests that perhaps the newly acquired Hewlett Packard webOS platform could also be forced to deal with spyware concerns in the very near future.



    The security firm claims that they have already been able to find a number of flaws in the operating system that could potentially leave it open for spyware harassment and a plethora of different exploits that could hinder the experience of the end user. One exploit that the firm detailed involved the data field in the contacts app which can be used to run different types of code. This issue was actually already addressed with the release of webOS 2.0, but there are still quite a few errors that were detailed by SecTheory that have yet to be fixed. These exploits include a denial of service error, cross-site scripting issues that could leave webOS devices vulnerable to attack and a floating-point overflow issue.


    Hewlett Packard will likely move quickly to fix all of the issues that were pointed out by the security firm SecTheory, especially since the company just recently acquired Palm OS and is looking to integrate the technology into a umber of their own unlocked cell phone next year. Sectheory speculated that webOS has been exposed as an underdeveloped platform which will make the platform more enticing to hackers and coders who are looking to infect your smart device with malware and spyware in an effort to capture information.


    Although no operating system is completely secure, the flaws that were exposed in the framework of webOS devices should be worrisome to individuals that were looking to purchase a device that runs on the platform. It is clear that HP has a great deal of work to do before consumers should feel completely safe while using the platform.

  • For fans who are eagerly awaiting the iPad 2, a number of rumors about the features that will be included have made their way to the web over the course of the last few days. Although you shouldn’t believe everything you hear about a product as large as the iPad 2, you have to believe that some of the rumors that have made their way online have some sort of truth behind them, or at least some safe bets as far as what features will be included. A recent article in a Chinese newspaper has shed some light on the features that Apple fans can expect int he upcoming version of the iPad.


    First of all, the article said that the iPad will include a Retina Display much like the one that was featured on the unlocked iPhone 4. This provides users with higher quality screen sand video and seems like a natural next step for Apple in the development of their iPad.


    The article also stated that the iPad 2 will feature a front facing camera for FaceTime video chat support, which also seems like a logical step for Apple. Most surprisingly, the report stated that the iPad 2 would feature a USB port, which is something that no previous Apple product has had. All of the data that is transferred between Apple products and PC’s and other computer go through the charging cord which also features a one-sided USB connection. It doesn’t seem likely that Apple will break from their current mold, but it would certainly be interesting and to the advantage of the user for the iPad to have a USB port to make for easier transferring of data between computers and the tablet device. It is a feature that many fans would be excited to have, but doesn’t seem to be something that would be beneficial for Apple, given the popularity of their smart devices.
