cool.Prepaid is a new MVNO using the Cingular network and Motorola phones. In addition, they are the first MVNO to actively promote SIM-only sales in the U.S. However, the major announcement today from cool.Prepaid is that they will be the first carrier to embrace Motorola’s iRadio streaming radio platform. The new MVNO plans to use Cingular’s GPRS/EDGE network to stream Motorola’s robust serving format directly to customers phones.
While cool.Prepaid will not be selling the ROKR E1, this does lock in cool.Prepaid as the first carrier planning to release the Motorola ROKR E2 when it is released later this year.
Update: cool.Prepaid has clarified to PCS Intel that they do not currently offer any data access plans, but that they plan to before launching iRadio services.
