Why Customer Retention is Harder Amon...

Category: Business Management

One of the unique advantages of a wireless prepaid service is that customers aren’t locked into a two year contract. It gives users the flexibility to try out the services that they want, when they want.
Unfortunately, while that gives a lot of power to the consumer, it doesn’t give prepaid dealers a whole lot of options in terms of customer retention.There’s a rule that says that most of our sales will come from a select group of customers. These are the people that will buy mobile accessories, prepaid refills and prepaid activations from us more frequently.
While this rule still holds true for prepaid dealers, it’s a law that pays off less dividends among the pre ...

Apple has never had the healthiest relationship with hackers.While Apple has tirelessly worked to keep their devices under lock and key, every iteration of iOS has been jailbroken by hackers in an effort to “unlock” the potential of Apple’s top-selling devices.
Ironically, this supposed form of “digital vandalism” may be nothing more than an innocent attempt at getting more out of what’s being given to us.   Earlier this month, Evasion was released, the very first jailbreak program for iOS 6. This meant that devices like the iPhone 5, iPad 4 and the newly released iPad Mini were now potentially free from the suffocating restrictions imposed by ...

It seems that Verizon isn’t going to let budget-conscious customers get swallowed up by its prepaid competitors.The major carrier recently announced budget-friendly prepaid plans that offer unlimited talk and text services for both $70 and $60 a month.
While the $60 plan gives subscribers 500MB of free data, the additional $10 will raise the data cap to a total 2GB.
Both plans include unlimited talk and text, regardless of the price.It’s a pretty tempting deal, with the $60 plan being especially tempting for prepaid subscribers that don’t need to be on the internet all day long.  It’s obvious that Verizon is appealing to a market that doesn’t have as mu ...

BlackBerry’s latest touchscreen, the BlackBerry Z10, has finally made its way to the United States via T-Mobile MVNO Solavei earlier this week. While previous reports had the much anticipated flagship phone hitting U.S markets no earlier than March this year, Solavei managed to get a jump on major carriers by getting the Z10 a couple of weeks early.Z10, which has already been released in Canada and Europe, has been receiving mixed reviews. Its apparent lack of a home button and its move away from the age-old QWERTY centric design shows a BlackBerry that isn’t afraid to roll with the times.The Z10 boasts a 4.2 inch display, along with a built-in 8 MP camera and a Qualcomm MSM8960 ...

Categories: Mobile Phones, News

It looks like HTC has a post-Valentine’s date with the press, and they’re more than happy to brag about it. HTC has recently posted a countdown timer on their website, ticking down to the United States unveiling of their latest flagship phone on February 19, 2013.HTC has been busy uploading various silent teaser videos of what is now codenamed the HTC M7. While it doesn’t reveal anything much outside of a sleek looking shell and a glimpse of the rear, it does make gratuitous use of lens flare. No word yet if HTC will be releasing a more telling video prior to the phone's official launch next week.
You can check out a compilation video of all the teaser videos of the M ...
