DataJack is perfect for travelers, backup usage, folks who don't want to sign a contract or give their personal information...and for anyone wanting to save money on their 3G bill!

How it works: You purchase the MC760 USB modem and your first month of service for $149.99. 3Gstore will activate the service for you (you can choose whether you want us to activate it before we ship or if you prefer to wait until you receive your order) - after your first month is up, you can then choose to pay for another month, set up recurring billing, or simply let the service stop until the next time you need it. No credit check or personal information is required, and you can cancel any time with NO penalty (you don't even have to return the MC760 when you cancel!).

That's it - really, there's no catch!

Like all products purchased from 3Gstore, you'll have access to our esteemed technical support and you'll also receive a helpful tipsheet along with your modem to help you get up and running.

Apple iPhone Coming To Sprint instead of Verizon?

Apple iPhone Coming To Sprint instead of Verizon?

According to ZDNet, Apple is reportedly making CDMA-capable iPhones that could end up on the Sprint network. Research notes from Jeffrey Fidacaro of the Susquehanna Financial Group said, "In line with expectations for an early CY11 launch of a CDMA iPhone, our checks indicate that 1QFY11 (December) CDMA iPhone production estimates are currently at 3 mln (unchanged from last month), putting total iPhone production (3 GS, iPhone 4, CDMA iPhone) at 21 mln-22 mln (up 5% from 20 mln-21 mln units previously). The slight increase is indicative of continued demand for iPhone 4 and increased distribution". Both Verizon and Sprint use CDMA technology (AT&T uses GSM), so the fact that Apple is working with CDMA at all certainly adds to the speculation that the iPhone is going to turn up from one of those two providers at some point.

There has been speculation about the iPhone heading to Verizon since it's inception, however, we haven't seen much mention of Sprint until now. This theory is more feasible as Sprint tends to be more open with their network and isn't as proprietary as Verizon with their phone offerings. Also, since Sprint already has 4G WiMAX implemented in 53 markets, it wouldn't be to far-fetched to even see a hybrid 3G/4G capable device. This would remove the main complaint that iPhone speculators state about CDMA - the fact that CDMA can't do voice and data at the same time. However, WiMAX fully supports both simultaneous voice/data which would keep Apple's iPhone feature set intact.

What do you think? Would you rather see a Sprint iPhone or a Verizon iPhone (or are you happy with the current state of affairs, with AT&T being the only carrier available for iPhone users?) Discuss the CDMA iPhone on the EVDO Forums.

Sprint Epic 4G Review

Sprint recently launched their second 4G phone, the Epic 4G from Samsung, which joined the super-popular HTC EVO 4G as the only 4G-capable phones on the market. The Epic 4G is capable of using Sprint's 3G & 4G networks, meaning that you can potentially get download speeds anywhere from 3 to 7mbps when you're in a 4G coverage area, and you can still expect up to 1-2mbps when you're in a nationwide 3G area. Since both the EVO & Epic are currently the only two phones capable of using Sprint's 4G network, many of our readers have been asking us which Sprint 4G phone is "better", but there really isn't a straight-forward answer. The EVO and Epic both have pro's & con's, and we think that each phone targets a slightly different audience. We've tested both phones extensively, and in this article we'll discuss the Epic's features and performance and how they compare to the EVO - and hopefully help you determine which 4G phone will be best for you!
