Best Buy is flexing its muscles in wireless services by offering pay as you go cellphone subscriptions with a data plan for prices ranging between $30 and $60 per month. Behind the scenes, it is the Sprint wireless network that will serve as a backbone for Best Buy as it effectively becomes a virtual mobile operator.
I wonder if Best Buy would accept to create account for customers who already own a Sprint phone or broadband device. Also, we’re curious to see which phones will be available at Best Buy. Usually, virtual mobile operators focus on value and only offer previous-generation phones. [via WSJ]
