After a hacker attack killed their launch slated for last week, Voyager Mobile has announced this morning that they are officially open for business. Voyager Mobile is the latest Sprint-based mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) to launch, and runs on Sprint’s 3G CDMA and 4G WiMax networks. Voyager offers an unlimited talk and text plan for $19 per month, with unlimited data bringing the monthly price up to $39, plus any applicable local, state, and federal taxes.
Voyager has a decent array of phones available for sale, ranging from the basic Samsung M370 flip phone ($119) to the Samsung Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch ($549). As you’re paying full retail price for a device, you won’t be tied to the customary contracts carriers force you into when you purchase a subsidized phone. Provided you are okay with being tied to Sprint’s network, Voyager Mobile is a viable alternative to the costly subsidized voice and data plans currently available from major (and even many regional) carriers.
