promised that they would be launching service on an unnamed GSM operator "soon". But ever since then, the Sprint MVNO has not given an update on this promise. That is, until today.
If you've been waiting for CellNUVO to make good on its GSM promise, you're in for some good news. Earlier today, the MVNO announced that they are in the works of upgrading their platform for their subscribers to enjoy. Along with the platform improvement, users will be able to get a better overall network experience and gain more choices with higher quality service.
CellNUVO also announced that an iPhone app would be released as part of the platform update. That will make it possible to use iPhones on CellNUVO, which is currently limited to Android phones.
The MVNO is giving its subscribers access not only to the best GSM network in the U.S. but also the top CDMA networks. Although they have not revealed a lot of details about this good news, the MVNO has shared that its subscribers may experience minor service interruptions. Despite this, the MVNO is working hard at minimizing these interruptions.
CellNUVO is a freemium operator that lets customers earn credits, called Silver, by watching ads and taking surveys. Silver can be used to pay for calls, text and data use.
As they prepare for the transition, current subscribers of the MVNO will continue to earn Silver. The MNVO assured its customers that the Silver balance will not be lost and will be updated once the new server has been connected.
During the transition, the entire CellNUVO website has been replaced by a single page announcing that GSM service and iPhone support are coming soon. With the functional parts of the CellNUVO site down, it's not currently possible to activate new lines of service on CellNUVO.
