New wireless carrier offers unlimited everything for $45 per month

New wireless carrier offers unlimited everything for $45 per month
PrepaYd Wireless launches today with three different unlimited pre-paid monthly plans. The service runs on Sprint's CDMA pipeline and has about the same footprint as the nation's third largest carrier. Customers can get a free featurephone while smartphones run from $75 to $399 and include such names as the HTC Arrive, LG Optimus S, LG Remarq, and the Samsung Replenish. To get an ideas of what type of customer is being targeted here, the carrier's parent company is PrepaYd which offers a debit card for those whom the banks wouldn't touch with a 40 foot pole.

The Advantage Plan for $35 per month gives you unlimited talk and text, while the $40 Power Plan adds unlimited web and email. For $45 a month, the Ultimate Plan tacks on picture messages, Instant Messaging and GPS. This is the plan you must sign up for if you want to use an Android or Windows Phone smartphone.

For those interested in signing up, it can be done directly online by visiting the sourcelink.

"PrepaYd which offers a debt card for those whom the banks" Is this a 'get debt free card'? Is this supposed to be debit card?

I'm sure that's what he meant, but that's kind of funny though.

Sprint owns both Boost & Virgin and use these brands for target marketing. PrepaYd Wireless is an indirect subsidiary of a publicly traded company, albeit a penny stock, but publicly traded.

It seems like every MVNO type carrier ever works off Sprint network. I wonder why that is, I guess AT&T/Verizon dont want anything to do with them, and T-mo doesnt have the sufficient covearge for them. I bet catering to all these MVNOs is hurting sprint as far as coverage and such though, as they are obligated to meet whatever standards they guarantee to them, and thus can hurt their own customers in the process.

Sprint seems to love catering to MVNOs. The only AT&T MVNO I can think of off the top of my head is H2O, T-Mobile has Simple Mobile, and Verizon has StraightTalk (non-smartphones) and PagePlus. Sprint has so many...

Well this explains why Sprint's speeds are so slow.. Too many carriers on one network = the reason why I switched.

Two questions: 1) Can I take any Sprint Android phone e.g. Samsung Galaxy S2 and activate it on Prepayd? 2) What kind of speeds can I expect from Sprint's CDMA network?
