It appears that RadioShack is going to become a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) for Cricket in the U.S. including its Muve music service. Our tipster, Kyle T, just sent some information on the HTC One V that will be carried as a pre-paid phone at RadioShack on “RadioShack Mobile”.
Look for other phones to follow soon like the Alcatel Authority (pictured above). The full One V description from RadioShack is below:
|The HTC One V offers one of the best operating systems currently on the market and access to thousands of apps. Powered by 4.0 Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system, the One V offers more without the added cost of an annual contract. Don’t forget the hand-crafted sound from Beats Audio, a phone with optimized headphone outputs with a high dynamic range for listening. Combine this great audio software and Muve Music™, you have an incredible music experience on your phone. About RadioShack No Contract Wireless: RadioShack No Contract Wireless lets you choose what’s important to you. Low monthly rates keep you connected and let you talk, text and browse anytime you want. You’ll have a choice of plans that feature nationwide coverage with no contracts to make it easy for you to stay connected wherever you go, any way you decide.|
Getting Started: ACTIVATE at your local RadioShack store or by calling 1-866-750-7111.
CHOOSE A PLAN: that meets your needs. PAY AS YOU GO with cash, check, credit or debit card at any RadioShack location.
How It Works: Your monthly service begins automatically when you activate your account and have enough funds in your account to cover the cost of your plan. If your rate plan is $25, then that’s all you need in your account to start your first month of service. Your plan amount will be deducted from your account balance automatically giving you immediate access to all of your plan’s included services for a full month. Be sure to add funds to your account before the end of your month to maintain uninterrupted service. If you don’t, your service will be interrupted until you add enough funds to cover the cost of your plan. Don’t worry, we’ll send you free text message reminders before your current month ends. You can even set up monthly Auto Top-Up with your credit/debit card or checking account to automatically pay for your monthly service — it’s easy and convenient!
Topping-Up Your Account: When it’s time to top-up, visit any RadioShack store or call 1-800-750-7111 (top-up denominations available in $25, $35, $50 and $60). Store locations can be found at radioshack.com/storelocator. Be sure to use your funds before your account cancellation date, or carry your funds forward by topping-up or just using your service.1GHz processor for blazing speeds and real 3G Web browsing3.7” scratch-resistant LCD WVGA touchscreen showcases a stunning display
