Sprint is Offering the 16GB Nexus 5 Starting Nov. 8 for $149.99, T-Mobile "In the Coming Weeks"

nexus 5 official

We heard not too long ago that the Nexus 5 would be making its way to Sprint, but the Now Network has made it official. Sprint is the first carrier to announce a release date for the Nexus 5 that has only been out for less than two hours. Starting next friday, November 8, the phone will be available on-contract for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Sprint was also quick to point out that if you sign up for their One Up program, it will only cost you $18.75 a month for your new phone. 

T-Mobile also wanted to make sure that everyone knew the Nexus 5 would be coming to their network as well. In a press release, they were vague about the date and price of the phone when it came to them, only promising that it would be “in the coming weeks… for an affordable price.” We will be sure to keep our ears open listening for a release date.

Anyone planning on switching to one these two carriers for the Nexus 5?

Moto X coming to Sprint tomorrow for $199.99 on a two-year contract

We’ve already seen Google and Motorola’s creation, the Moto X, land on AT&T and Verizon, and now it’s time for Sprint to add the handset to its lineup. The Now Network announced today that the Moto X will be available for $199.99 with a two-year contract, though there is a limited time promotion which allows new subscribers to get the device for $100 less by way of instant credit. Sprint’s going to only be offering the Moto X in woven black and white to kick things off, but the carrier did say that the Moto Maker feature is expected to be supported “in the coming months.”

HTC 8XT will be available on Sprint July 19th for $100 after rebate

HTC 8XT will be available on Sprint July 19th for $100

The term “this summer” has finally become much more specific for anyone hoping to score a Sprint-branded Windows Phone: July 19th. This is the date the Now Network will launch the HTC 8XT, the carrier’s first WP8 device, and you’ll be able to grab one for $100 after a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year commitment. For that overall cost, you’re getting a 4.3-inch WVGA display, 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, BoomSound, microSD expansion and an 1,800mAh battery. There’s still no word on Samsung’s entry to this arena, but we imagine it won’t be terribly long before the news arrives, but we do know that HTC’s version will start out $50 cheaper (likely due in part to the lower resolution). Press release after the break.

Sprint Vital coming June 14th for $99 5inch 720p display, 13MP camera, 12GHz dualcore processor

The Sprint Vital is now more than just a phone featured in a simple leaked video — it’s a reality. The Now Network has publicly unveiled the ZTE-made device, confirming it’s on course for a June 14th release for $100 with a two-year commitment. The specs are all there as well: as expected, the device will boast a 5-inch 720p IPS panel, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, a 13MP rear camera paired with a 1MP front-facing cam, 2,460mAh battery, NFC, 8GB internal storage and microSD support for up to 64GB. On paper, it’s not too bad for a solid mid-range device, but how will the final product turn out? We imagine we’ll find out soon enough.

LG Optimus F3 confirmed for those on a budget

Today we’re getting our first official look at the upcoming LG Optimus F3 for the Now Network. This budget-friendly smartphone has leaked on Twitter from the usual @evleaks, and a few of the details have been revealed. LG first announced their new F series at Mobile World Congress, and now it looks like the low-end is headed to a few US carriers soon.

LG-Optimus-F3

All the details of the leak were released from the folks at Phone Arena, which weren’t much. The leakster didn’t reveal full specs, price, or a release date, but we know it’s coming. However it does state to look for it in the next few weeks, and that it should be priced aggressively.

If it indeed comes in a similar package as what we saw at Mobile World Congress the Optimus F3 should be a dual-core smartphone with a 4-inch display. So while it won’t be top of the line, it should be a mildly impressive phone for first-time buyers or budget conscious shoppers.

At the same time this leak also states that the recently released (see our full review) LG Optimus G Pro and that massive 5.5-inch 1080p display will also be headed to the Now Network, and AT&T won’t have the exclusive rights to the phablet.

LG also has an Optimus F5 and F7 in the works, but so far this is the first device that should be hitting the market. Stay tuned for more info.

LG Optimus F7 leaked as potential suitor for Boost Mobile

LG Optimus F7 leaked as potential suitor for Boost Mobile

Travel back to the time of Mobile World Congress and you’ll surely recall the LG Optimus F7, a well-specced mid-tier smartphone that left us quite impressed. Now, @evleaks has shared a peek of the device that’s adorned with the Now Network’s branding, and if all goes according to plans, the serial leaker suggests the phone will soon hit Sprint-owned Boost Mobile. A few notable features of the Optimus F7 include a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display, a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, an 8-megapixel primary camera, 2GB RAM and Android 4.1.2, which would pose a heavy challenge to Boost’s current premiere smartphone, the HTC One SV. Naturally, we’d certainly welcome the Optimus F7 on Sprint (and even Virgin Mobile), and given the Sprint Zone branding, we’ll remain cautiously hopeful that Dan Hesse is thinking the same.

HTC One just $99 for customers who switch to Sprint

HTC One

Current customers stuck with $199 price tag, full price still $549

Sprint is prominently displaying promotions on its HTC One pre-order page indicating that new customers coming to the Now Network will receive $100 off their purchase. Provided you bring your own number to the carrier (presumably to make sure people intend to stick around) and sign a two year contract, the device will ring up at just $99. The HTC One will be finally available on Sprint on April 19th, but pre-ordering before then secures your device, which Sprint says it will attempt to have arrive at your door before it actually goes on sale in stores.

If you're planning on pre-ordering you're unfortunately going to be restricted to just the silver/white model, with the black model still "coming soon". Is $100 enough money to make you consider switching carriers? You can get more info at the source link below.

Sprint 4G rolls out to nine new markets

Those on the Now Network will be seeing Sprint’s glorious 4G LTE signal live in nine new markets as the carrier has announced expansion of its network. Folks in Altoona, Pa., Asheville, N.C., Columbus, Ind., Elkhart/Goshen, Ind., Hammond, La., La Crosse, Wis., San Juan, Puerto Rico, Statesville, N.C., and Temple, Texas will all be able to pull down high-speed data on devices like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 and the upcoming HTC One. This also means those Virgin Mobile and Boost mobile will be able to access LTE in those areas as those Sprint subsidiaries share the same 4G LTE signal. Happy times for all, indeed. Be sure to check for the 4G icon on your phone whenever you get a chance.

Sprint LTE Goes Live Today In Nine New Markets

Sprint-Galaxy-S-III-Google-Wallet-Preloaded-2GB-RAM-Dual-Core-S4-Preorders-Up-June-5-Release-On-June-21-A

Network Vision has been a fairly slow process for Sprint, but the carrier is flipping the LTE switch in nine new markets today.

  • Altoona, Pa.
  • Asheville, N.C.
  • Columbus, Ind.
  • Elkhart/Goshen, Ind.
  • Hammond, La.
  • La Crosse, Wis.
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Statesville, N.C.
  • Temple, Texas

This brings The Now Network’s LTE footprint up to a whopping 67 markets, some one-point-seven gazillion short of Verizon, five-hundred-million behind that of AT&T, and negative sixty-six short of T-Mobile’s LTE network count (on a good day). Note: those numbers are estimates, and may not be exact. 

The company is still working on testing and implementing its high-speed network in other areas across the country, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.

Leak reveals budget-friendly Sprint Force from ZTE arriving March 1st

A new budget-friendly Android is headed to the Now Network. Bearing the carrier’s badging and manufactured by ZTE, the Sprint Force is a low-cost Android 4.0 handset featuring a 4-inch display, 1.5GHz processor, and 5MP camera. It will also reportedly take advantage of Sprint’s ever-growing LTE network.

Other specs include 4GB if internal storage, 1GB RAM, and a 1730mAh battery. All of this for only $49.99 on a two-year contract after rebates, or so the product sheet details. The phone’s launch should only be about a week away, with the handset pegged for a March 1st release.

Sprint joins BB10 bandwagon, ‘plans’ to carry devices ‘later this year’

Ah, there you are, Sprint — didn’t speak up at first. Following confirmations by US carriers, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T that they’d be carrying BlackBerry 10 devices this year, the Now Network has joined the fray. While we’ll surely find out the full details from RIM come the OS’s official kick-off on January 30th, details are currently slim. A rep for the company confirmed the news to BGR (and Engadget, for that matter) stating, “Sprint plans to bring BlackBerry 10 to our customers later this year. We will share more details soon.” Notably, Sprint is the only carrier that hasn’t committed to having devices upon the launch of the OS — of course, being the Now Network doesn’t always mean being first.

Sprint confirms pay-as-you-go service, promises not to throttle speeds or cap data

Sprint confirms pay-as-you-go service, promises not to throttle speeds or cap data

Word of a Sprint pay-as-you-go service crossed our desks just yesterday in the form of a leaked slide, and now Big Yellow has confirmed to FierceWireless that the effort, dubbed Sprint As You Go, will launch on January 25th. The Now Network’s new initiative will offer a $70 monthly plan for smartphones and a $50-a-month plan for feature phones. Both options won’t offer premium features such as WiFi tethering and Sprint Navigation, but Sprint says customers will see neither hide nor hair of data caps or speed throttling. As for hardware, the smartphone tier includes the LTE-enabled Samsung Victory at $250 and the LG Optimus Elite for $150. On the feature phone end of the spectrum, Samsung’s Array and M400 handsets are available on the service (presumably ringing up at $80 and $50, respectively). Angling to take advantage of Sprint’s new offer? You’ll have to forgo online shopping this time, as the firm is making the offer available exclusively through it’s brick-and-mortar Sprint Stores.

Sprint makes $2.1 billion bid to acquire Clearwire

After word spread that Sprint was in “active negotiations” to acquire the remaining share of Clearwire, the carrier has tabled a $2.1 billion offer to buyout the company. Sprint currently holds a majority stake in Clearwire but seeks complete ownership of its assets, including spectrum that could be repurposed towards building out the Now Network’s own wireless offerings.

A few key things need to happen before the deal can go through. Obviously, Clearwire would need to agree to the terms, but so would SoftBank, the Japanese company that aims to complete a deal to acquire 70 percent of Sprint by next spring. Even if both parties are kosher with Sprint’s offer, the Clearwire deal is contingent on the SoftBank acquisition going through. The ink likely won’y be on the paperwork until March or April of 2013.

Sprint reportedly in talks to purchase remaining Clearwire stake

Sprint reportedly in talks to acquire remaining Clearwire stake

Sprint’s situation continues to get even more complicated, as it’s being reported by CNBC that the Now Network is currently in “active negotiations” to acquire the remaining half of Clearwire, just two months after it took 51 percent stake in the company and had 70 percent of its own entity acquired by Softbank. That said, there is no guarantee that this particular buyout will occur, as the deal will have to get the Japanese carrier’s blessing before proceeding. According to the all-knowing “people familiar with the matter,” Sprint’s vision in fully acquiring the company is to add Clearwire’s spectrum to its own. It aims to close the deal around the same time the Softbank deal is finalized, which both companies are hoping will take place in March or April.

Text-to-911 emergency services coming to US carriers in 2014

New details have confirmed that the big 4 US phone carriers have agreed to rollout a brand new service in a joint effort with the 911 Association (NENA) that will allow text-to-911 emergency services. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and the Now Network have all agreed to offer this come 2014. With text messages being such a huge part of daily life we’re surprised this didn’t happen sooner.

Apparently the agreement and plan between all four major US carriers and the 911 association has been shipped off to the FCC for approval, and should be seen this month to get things started. Apparently back in May Verizon was dabbling with the idea, but this is a full on agreement by all four carriers to work together and offer this service to all their subscribers.

NENA’s President Barbara Jaeger offered this statement. “As the public becomes more mobile and embraces new methods for communicating, 9-1-1 has to be ready to answer non-voice requests for assistance. This historic agreement demonstrates the shared commitment of parties to serve the evolving needs of citizens in the digital age.”

Plans to launch the service are aiming for early 2014 with the initial rollout complete by May. There will be a bounce-back system in place for regions not yet supported as 911 call centers will need to have required equipment and training to complete this new option. Obviously placing a call for help or emergencies is obviously the best and fastest way to proceed, but this service will be great for hearing impaired as well as those scary situations where silence is needed. This is a good first step by wireless carriers, I’m just surprised this hasn’t been fully implemented sooner. Thoughts on text-to-911 services?

Sprint reportedly wooing Dish with spectrum sharing and MVNO possibilities

Sprint reportedly wooing dish with an MVNO and spectrum sharing arrangement

Spectrum is a valuable and finite resource, but it seems that Sprint has an overabundance of the stuff. In addition to the capacity needed for its namesake operation, along with its Boost and Virgin Mobile properties, the Now Network is currently leasing its capacity to Ting, FreedomPop, Republic Wireless, Voyager Mobile, Elevate and pretty much any other company that’s willing to ink a contract. Now, Bloomberg reports that Sprint’s looking to bring a biggie on board. According to the outlet’s anonymous sources, Sprint has approached Dish Network with an offer that would allow the satellite company to establish itself as a wireless provider by using the Now Network’s airwaves. Curiously, a fee-based arrangement isn’t the only topic of discussion, as it’s also said that Sprint is exploring a spectrum sharing arrangement with Dish that would put the satellite company’s unused spectrum licenses to use.

For all the potential that such an agreement could provide, talks between the companies are currently said to be in a holding pattern while the FCC completes its review of Dish’s spectrum holdings. As proof that the duo aren’t completely cozy, Sprint is currently lobbying the regulatory agency to impose rules that Dish insists would reduce the viability of its spectrum. Oh, the irony.

Sprint adding Spotify Premium to carrier billing for Android customers starting November 11th

DNP Sprint adding Spotify Premium to carrier billing for Android customers starting November 11th

A few months back Sprint’s Android customers gained the option to charge Google Play purchases to their monthly wireless bill. In an effort to keep the carrier billing party going, the Now Network will soon be adding this option for Spotify Premium customers. An anonymous tipster has shared with us that starting on November 11th, Sprint’s Android clientele will be able to add the music streaming service’s $10 monthly charge to their bill. While we’re sure that some customers will take advantage of this new option, we can’t help but long for the good old days when people could bill a new phone to their account. Ah, Sprint giveth and taketh away.

Sprint Spending $480 Million To Acquire U.S. Cellular Spectrum And Customers In The Midwest Area

sprintlogothumbCall it a new found boldness after the Softbank acquisition, or just an attempt to bolster its numbers in the continued fight against AT&T and Verizon, but Sprint is not letting up. Today, the nation’s number three carrier announced it’s going to buy up some of U.S. Cellular’s spectrum and customers in mid-west states including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. Among the newly Now Network’d markets are Chicago and St. Louis.

The spectrum offerings that the company is picking up will be used to bolster LTE service for the markets that Sprint is taking off U.S. Cellular’s hands. It’s not a monumental deal, by any means, but given that the Softbank-owned carrier could use any advantage it can get as it races to compete with the near-duopoly, it’s definitely a good sign.

[Deal Alert] Wirefly Now Selling Sprint Optimus G Pre-Orders for $149, $50 Off Regular Price

2012-11-01_16h32_19For CDMA users, the GSM-exclusive Nexus 4 can be a bit of a bummer. However, if you’re looking for the same high-powered specs without leaving the Now Network, you can get the Optimus G which David was actually pretty impressed by. Right now, Wirefly and Sprint are both accepting pre-orders for this device, though the former is offering it for about $50 cheaper than you would pay getting it straight from the carrier.

2012-11-01_16h39_57

Of course, that’s with a new two year contract or an upgrade on your existing line. Still, it’s a nice little chunk of change to have knocked off.
