Today a new mobile virtual network operator named Simple Mobile announced its launch across the U.S. Simple Mobile offers a SIM card plan for phones using GSM technology, and it encourages customers to supply their own handsets. Simple Mobile is offering several different plans. Unlimited talk costs $40 per month, unlimited talk and text costs $45, and unlimited talk, text and web costs $50. Simple Mobile says that it has nationwide coverage, and offers unlimited 411, mobile web, IM, MMS, social networks, email, long distance, voicemail, caller ID, and call waiting. Similar to other pre-paid providers, Simple Mobile does not conduct back ground or credit checks, doesn't charge an activation fee and it doesn't require long-term contracts. Simple Mobile says that users can port an existing number to their new Simple Mobile account if they wish. Simple Mobile does offer a small selection of six handsets, but has approved over 180 different models to use its services, including devices from manufacturers such as Research In Motion, HTC, Motorola, Samsung and Nokia. Simple Mobile provides a coverage map on its web site that suggests it has services available in many of the country's top markets, though it makes no mention of 3G services. Calls to Simple Mobile for more information were not answered.
