Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Promo Material for Sprint Leaked

Posted by Tim-o-tato February - 27 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

While Sprint decided to post up its own teaser for the Galaxy S6, much like we saw from T-Mobile and AT&T, a “verified employee” who is registered on reddit decided to one up the company, sharing a great shot of the two upcoming devices, including the Galaxy S6 Edge

The banner leaked is for a promotion Sprint is hosting, stating that anyone who pre-registers for the device will be entered for a chance to win on of six GS6 devices for free. Seems like a sweet deal.

While we don’t much care about free phones from Sprint, the shot of the Galaxy S6 Edge is our clearest yet, with its two rounded edges being shown off prominently.

As we near closer to March 1, the phones’ unveiling date, the leaks just keep coming in. If anything else of importance shows up, we will keep you posted.

Excited?

Sprint has just announced that the LG G Pad F 7.0 will be available on the Sprint network beginning March 13th. The G Pad F 7.0 is the carrier’s first LG-made tablet, and will be offered up for free to any current Sprint customers willing to sign a two-year contract with the device.

The LG G Pad F 7.0 has a 7-inch WXGA IPS display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and MicroSD expansion up to 128GB. It also has a 4000mAh battery, a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 1.2MP front-facing camera. The tablet is running Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, and will be available in either Black or White. The G Pad F 7.0 has a handful of familiar LG features like LG Pair, allowing you to pair it up with an Android smartphone to receive and reply to notifications. Other LG features are on the tablet as well, like Knock Code, Gesture Shot, SmartShare Beam and Dual Window.

Sprint is also running a promotion allowing users to lease the tablet and an LG G3 with unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data for $90 per month. The same deal is also available for the LG G Flex 2, only for $95 per month. The LG G Pad F 7.0 will be available in White from March 13th, while the Black model won’t be available until April 10th.

LG g pad f 7.0If you’ve been considering adding a tablet to your monthly cellular plan, Sprint will soon be selling LG’s G Pad F 7.0 on a two-year contract. The tablet comes equipped with LTE radios for Sprint’s network and is the first LG tablet that the carrier has offered. The tab is free on a two-year contract, and it runs just $10 a month on Sprint EasyPay.

The G Pad F sports a Snapdragon 410 CPU and a 7-inch IPS display, so while it’s not a top-of-the-line device, it’s not a bad deal for what it costs. With LG’s Q Pair, you can even sync the tablet with any Android phone to mirror notifications like texts and calls to the tablet, so you can effectively replace your phone with this in a pinch.

Ting’s GSM network has now launched in open beta

Posted by wicked February - 25 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Ting-668x376

Ting, the Sprint MVNO, has just launched an open beta test for its GSM network. In early December, the MVNO started testing its GSM network through an invite-only system, and the network has now come into fruition. In the past, Ting was only available as a CDMA carrier using Sprint as a network partner. But the decision to launch a GSM network was ultimately decided so that (mostly) all customers with an unlocked device could switch to the carrier.

Ting adds:

We’ve sent out invitations in the thousands with a majority of people taking us up on the offer. We’ve used the feedback we’ve received from our intrepid testers to further refine the activation process and the way we confirm that devices are compatible. Another thing we’ve been working on is making the switch from the CDMA to the GSM network easy for those that want to move their service or one of their active numbers from one to the other.

If you’d like to test out the new GSM Ting network, all you need to do is purchase a SIM card from the company and activate your device. If you’d like, Ting also mentions that you can have both CDMA and GSM phones activated on the same account.

Since this is an open beta, there are going to be a few issues with the network. Specifically, Ting warns that they’re having trouble with international roaming and international long distance. International roaming is only a problem if you’re traveling outside of North America, and that’s likely the same cause for international long distance issues. Also, Ting uses T-Mobile’s towers to power their GSM network, so if you don’t have service with T-Mobile, perhaps you want to sit this beta test out.

Sprint feeling the ‘six appeal’ of the Samsung Galaxy S 6

Posted by wicked February - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

sprint_six_appeal_samsung_galaxy_s_6_teaser

During the Oscars last night, T-Mobile decided to tease the world with the first glimpse of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 6. The image has a glowing Galaxy S 6 with the phrase ‘six appeal’ floating above it. Then, earlier today, AT&T introduced the same teaser and the magenta glow was replaced with blue. Another carrier also joined the fun today, too. The image above was provided by Sprint this evening. Once again, the glow has been switched to match Sprint’s yellow.

Now we are waiting for Verizon to start feeling the ‘six appeal.’

Samsung s Next Big Thing is Almost Here   New Samsung Smartphone   T Mobile

As one would expect, top officials at mobile carriers get to see devices before they are announced since they have to agree on whether they want to carry the specific devices. In this case, a carrier would have to be completely insane not to carry the Galaxy S 6, but they still go through the motions.

The Korea Herald is reporting that many of the carriers are excited about the Galaxy S 6, as well as the Edge version of the same phone. They even went so far as to say that they are better than the iPhone 6 in terms of design.

Carriers such as Vodafone, SK Telecom, T-Mobile, and Sprint are all quite impressed with the S6, but it seems like they were more impressed with the Edge. The Edge will feature two curved edges, one along the right side and the other along the left side.

What does all this mean? Probably not a lot, but Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy S 6, and this is just positive PR that can only help, not hurt. How much help is anyone’s guess.

Sprint announces new $90 Family Share Plan with 10 GB of data

Posted by wicked February - 21 - 2015 - Saturday Comments Off

sprint_logo

Sprint announced today that it is making available a new Family Share Plan that it thinks places it at the forefront in terms of providing value for customers. The new plan provides 12 GB of high-speed data along with unlimited talk and text for up to 10 lines for only $90 per month. This bests T-Mobile slightly, which has a plan offering 10 GB of data for $100 per month if four lines are on the plan, as the carriers appear to be focusing more on scooping up entire families as customers. In order to achieve this feat Sprint is waiving the normal line access fee for new lines on the plan until March 31, 2016 after which the plan may no longer represent such a value.

To try to sweeten the deal some, Sprint is also reducing the line access charge for handsets from $25 per month to $15 per month. If customers opt for a 12 GB per month or larger plan and port over their number, Sprint will waive line access fees for one year if the device is purchased through Sprint Easy Pay, Sprint Lease or the Sprint iPhone for Life Plan.

Finally, Sprint will help customers porting numbers over to 12 GB or larger plans by providing an American Express Reward Card valued at $350 per line to help buy out contracts.

If you are interested in switching, you have until March 12, 2015 to take advantage of the offer. Sprint customers can take advantage of these deals through Sprint stores, online or through telesales. Hit the source link for more details.

New Sprint Family Share Pack plan offers 12GB of data on up to 10 lines for $90 per month

Posted by wicked February - 20 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

sprint-logo

Sprint has just introduced a new tier into their Family Share Pack plans, which gives customers 12GB of high-speed data, unlimited talk and text, which can be shared between up to 10 lines for $90 per month. Each tablet added to the plan will cost an extra $10 per line, and each mobile broadband device added to the plan will cost an additional $20 per month.

Sprint explains:

Sprint is reducing the data access charge on the $90 Family Share Pack plan from $25 to $15 for handsets. For customers switching their number to Sprint from another carrier, Sprint is waiving the access charge for handsets, tablets and mobile broadband devices on 12GB or higher data allowances for up to 10 lines for one year.5 All devices must be purchased through Sprint Easy Pay, Sprint Lease or the Sprint iPhone for Life Plan. A family of four will save $720 in data access fees for the year.

Also, for customers who are porting their numbers over from another carrier and are planning to activate on this new plan, Sprint will give you an American Express Reward Card up to $350 for each line to help you buyout your old contract. This entire promotion will only last until March 12th.

Considering the price of other similar data tier plans throughout AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, this might be a good option if you have more than a few people willing to switch.
