LG Remarq / Imprint
A new wireless service provider called PrepaYd Wireless launched today and offers an unlimited talk, text (SMS only), and 3G web data "Power" plan for $40 per month. The company also offers an unlimited talk and text "Advantage" plan for $35 per month. To get unlimited picture messaging and instant messaging, users must choose the $45-per-month "Ultimate" plan. The company is offering a free feature phone to new customers while supplies last, and also sells devices such as HTC Arrive, LG Optimus S, LG Remarq, and the Samsung Replenish for prices ranging between $75 and $399. PrepaYd's service runs on the Sprint network, and is available across most of Sprint's CDMA footprint. PrepaYd Wireless's parent company, PrepaYd, runs a debit card business and targets the underbanked, which it believes gives it a unique position in the prepaid mobile market. PrepaYd phones and services are available directly from its web site.
