in France we have "free mobile" carrier, same service plus international calls to 40 countries for 20 euros/month (~25$). When it appeared it was a revolution.
I thought only in France carrier were asking for crazy prices, but it seems that every country face the same thing.
should be good if they start doing the same world wide I think.
I use Virgin Mobile, but I swear to god, we don't need one more small pay-as-you-go/prepaid carrier forcing us to use Sprint's CDMA network requiring phones that you can't carry over to another network if you wanted to... (and are usually subject to slow hardware release cycles as well).
I welcome more options and competition. Tired of paying AT&T $100 for unlimited data (grandfathered), unlimited text, and 450 minutes. I only use about 1500 text, 1-2GB data, and 100 minutes, but their pricing tiers suck. I actually just ordered a sim card and $45 30 day unlimited card for Straight Talk. I'm looking forward to the change.
