Disney today announced it will shut down Disney Mobile at the end of this year. Early this year Disney also shuttered Mobile ESPN, its sport-centric MVNO. The company will provide service to subscribers through December 31, however they will announce a reimbursement and porting program by October 8. Walt Disney Internet Group is looking at offering its Family Center features to other carriers, however both Sprint and Verizon offer similar programs already.

Helio's next

I dont care if they're in it for the long haul or how money they have to spend on it. Helio will die because they're get tired of trying to make a profit from it.

Lets cut the MVNO bullshit and let the big 4 run their networks.
people are jumping off Helio like it's the Titanic!!
Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
should be announced soon that Helio is going by by!

Disney mobile

why didn't PHONE SCOOP have any info on the carriers section same thing for other mvno that are still around?
A carrier has to reach a certain number of subscribers before Phone Scoop will add it as a carrier.
...
Disney was one I went back and forth on, as far as adding them to the carriers in the database. I hesitated mostly because I just didn't see the commitment I felt was necessary to be successful, or at least the commitment necessary to reach our 1-mill...

Lesson learned....

Well, here is a lesson learned in all of this. Let wireless companies run their own networks such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. And stick to the majors.
