It seems like we have a new cellphone carrier on our hands. well, not exactly, they call it a “virtual carrier” (piggybacking on someones network). But still due the lack of competition in the US, it’s quite exciting.
So I just received this offer from Phonebooth (btw they offer a great free alternative to Google voice) about a unlimited 69/month plan.
It seems to be post paid (contract required) on the sprint network.
The only android phone they offer is a Hero, for $149, which is last year technology, and could be found online (with a Sprint contract) for just about $40.
While you can get better prices with some prepaid companies, they do not offer android phones.
I know about the Boost Mobile Motorola i1, but being on the iDEN network, with data speeds slower than dial up, its not even worth mentioning.
While the phone is not that exciting, I still like the way prices are going, that is down!
