Prepaid offerings are getting hot once again. Just last week, Virgin Mobile announced a new plan that offered unlimited data to its subscribers. And earlier this week, there was talk about Verizon Wireless prepping up an $80 prepaid data plan to offer 5GB data at one month validity.
Now, more attractive prepaid plans in the offing – this time in the voice calling space. Boost Mobile – one of Sprint’s prepaid brands has announced a new International Connect feature that will bring unlimited calling to landlines and mobile phones in several international destinations including Mexico, China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Canada. And unless you are traveling outside the US, you also get to enjoy unlimited text messaging to these countries.
All this is now available at a price of $5 a month that is less than half of the original price.
Are you that kind of a person who sends dozens of text messages every day? If so, you should check out this new Motorola handset that is soon becoming available on Boost Mobile. The Motorola Rambler is a clamshell device that supports a physical QWERTY keyboard that is ideal for the heavy texters. Other features on the device include a 1.3-Megapixel camera, video recording capability, GPS, wireless internet, stereo bluetooth capability and integration with IM clients like Yahoo, AOL and MSN.
Motorola Rambler is coming to the online stores on August 11 and will sell at a price of $99.99 presumably with a standard 2 year contract.
