Ting Activates Unlocked iPhone 6 / 6 Plus Preparing to Launch GSM Service

Ting U.S. cellular is not an ordinary mobile carrier. This is virtual network operator that operates using Sprint CDMA and 4G networks. The company has big plans for March as it wants to purchase data capacity from a GSM operator. Ting GSM service will allow iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners access LTE, 4G, 2G and 3G voice networks.

ting-iphone-6-us-virtual-carrier

The new Ting iPhone plan allows customers pay for what they use. The company can now support only particular devices, but it should soon get access to a big variety of brands with GSM support.

Ting iPhone 6 and 6 Plus activations have already begun. The virtual carrier activates unlocked models for now [read about the new phone unlocking policy in the United States], but it assures that once Samsung releases its Galaxy S6 or Google offers a new smartphone, subscribers will be able to sign up for Ting and start using its plans at once. Such a statement was made by the carrier’s VP of Marketing Michael Goldstein.

It is rumored that Ting is planning to buy capacity from T-Mobile. This will unlock Ting from being tied to old Sprint iPhones that are out of contract and unlocked. Sprint had a lot of restrictions for its MVNOs, but the carrier’s rules have recently changed and you should soon get a chance to insert a Ting SIM card into any GSM smartphone that works on T-Mobile frequency to get the signal.

The carrier will also work with Sprint and Verizon CDMA smartphones.

Virgin Mobile No Longer Offers iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

There was talks about Virgin iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release. But unfortunately Virgin Mobile USA officially doesn’t offer any Apple’s iPhone lineup model.

The Sprint subsidiary claimed that carrier didn’t plan to offer the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus shortly after their launch. Although they used to offer iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. During the holiday sales the carrier didn’t show any Apple’s smartphone model, but the online store pages for the earlier Apple’s devices simply message “out of stock,” leading someone to expect their return in the near future.

Virgin-iphone-6

Previously, Virgin Mobile USA presented a dedicated webpage with details about the iPhone models it offered, including that they were available for prepaid and unsubsidized prices. Most recently, carrier offered iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 4s models with prepaid plans with the using Sprint subsidiary’s network requirement. That page now merely redirects to the carrier’s full range of smartphone offerings, minus any mention of Apple’s devices.

If you will try to visit the Virgin Mobile online store’s search function, the results will still present several Apple’s smartphones listings, including the 5C and 6, that, again, the carrier never offered.

After the iPhone 6/ 6 Plus release Sprint has been offering this smartphones and continues to do it. But it is still not clear if Virgin’s dropping of the iPhone is related to Sprint’s previous limitation on subsidiaries that they wait to offer the latest smartphone models.

It is really interesting Virgin Mobile can become the first U.S. carrier that once offer the iPhone and then stop. Unfortunately for them, there are plenty of other carriers to choose from for customers are looking for iPhone plans, including those with prepaid plans. So don’t try to search Virgin iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

How Much Data iPhone 6 Plus Generates

The report has some interesting points. As most users note, the iPhone 6 Plus generates double the data of the other model, iPhone 6. At the same time, while this might not sound as ‘too much’ to some of you, compare it to the iPhone 3GS and you’ll hear that the 6 Plus consumes ten times as much as the early version of the smartphone.

Such huge iPhone data usage is pretty notable. It is understood that each new model ‘eats’ more data so when you are eager to update to iPhone 5S, 6 or 6 Plus you must be ready to this as your gadget will need a bigger amount of data than iPhone 4 or 3GS.

You should also keep in mind that users with the most recent models use their smartphones more time compared to users with older versions. Thus, users who have the iPhone 5S say they use it about 55% of the time and owners of the 6 Plus model assure they use it 80% of the time.

You can guess that it’s the phone itself that consumes too much, it’s just the fact that customers spend different time with their gadgets and this results in the monthly amount of data they consume.
Still, compared to old models modern customers consume much more. The 6 Plus customers use 10 times more than users who had the 3GS model.

How are you engaged with your smartphone? Do you use it most of your free time and at work or not? Will you choose the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus? How eager are you to pay much more for your bill if you upgrade to the 6 Plus?
