International texting is an additional $5 a month and international calling and texting is an extra $10 monthly.

Target will also sell micro-SIM and nano-SIM Brightspot kits that work with any unlocked GSM phone and Target sold device.

They better stock the Lumia 520/521/525 because that's one of the best off contract phones you can get for $100❗

The tweet mentions the 521 will initially be available. Funny how the Alan left that part out, especially given how colorful Lumias are.

...And by "the Alan" I really just meant "Alan," although I think "the Alanator" could catch on pretty quickly.

Alan F: you need to fix the sentence: "One, for $35 a month, will offer unlimited talk and unlimited text for $35 a month". You have for $35 a month twice in the same sentence.

You can go to the actual tmobile and pay $5 more a month for 100% unlimited.

It's crazy how many MVNOs T-Mobile and Sprint have under their networks they barely can handle their own customers, who's next Home Depot with rugged devices on Sprint? Sears on T-Mobile? No wonder their customers aren't very happy speed wise.
