Voyager Mobile goes live days after initial launch delayed by website attackAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Voyager Mobile was supposed to make its debut last Tuesday, but an attack on its website caused the new Sprint MVNO to postpone its launch. The delay turned out to be fairly short, though, as Voyager Mobile is now open for business. Voyager is a prepaid carrier that operates on Sprint's 3G and 4G WiMAX networks and offers two plans: a $19 option that includes unlimited talk and text as well as a $39 plan that also throws in unlimited data. The carrier is also planning a Voyager Rewards program that'll offer goodies like gift cards and phone upgrades to frequent talkers, though that feature is currently listed as "coming soon."
On the device side of things, Voyager Mobile has a handful of phones to choose from, including a basic flip phone as well as Windows Phone and Android smartphones, all of which are contract-free. The LG Optimus S is available from Voyager for $219 while the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch is available for $549 for customers that want something a little more high-end. Voyager also plans to offer USB sticks, MiFis and tablets soon, promising that they'll be unlimited as well. It's also worth noting that Voyager Mobile is currently only selling plans and devices to 22 states, but the operator does say that it's adding more states to the list regularly.
So there's Voyager Mobile. With a pair of plan options and a selection of Android smartphones (as well as the Windows Phone-powered HTC Arrive), Voyager may be worth looking into if you're looking to switch to a prepaid operator and happen to be located in one of the 22 states where it's already selling service.
