PrepaYd Now Accepting Used Sprint Phones On Its Network
PrepaYd Wireless today announced that potential customers can bring their own, used Sprint handset to PrepaYd and have it activated with PrepaYd service. PrepaYd is an MVNO that offers prepaid, no-contract cellular service via Sprint's network. PrepaYd calls this new program the "Liberate Your Phone" initiative. It warns that even though the device may have come from Sprint and is running on the Sprint network, not all Sprint-branded apps and services preinstalled on the device will work. Some of the excluded services are Sprint Zone, Family Locator, Sprint Radio, Sprint Music, Sprint TV, Sprint My Account, and Sprint Mobile Wallet. Devices with Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, and Assurance Wireless branding (which also run on Sprint's network) aren't supported. BlackBerries, iPhones, Palm phones, LTE 4G devices, and iDEN PTT devices also aren't supported. Consumers interested in PrepaYd's no-contract wireless service can take their old Sprint phone to a PrepaYd store to have it activated.
