Evolving running update of Sprint MVNOs

Introduction

"MVNO", or Mobile Virtual Network Operator, is a carrier that purchases wholesale access to larger national network owners and resells under their own name. This is done sometimes selling their own branded phones and or existing phones from other carriers.

Recently, Sprint's wholesale program has gone through some aggressive changes resulting in a wave of new MVNOs operating on the Sprint network.

Coverage

Most offer native Sprint network coverage only, while some do offer extended roaming coverage onto Verizon(Sprint's U.S. roaming partner).

Taxes/Fees

Local State and Federal taxes/fees vary specifically by State, some MVNOs include these Federal and State taxes/fees in their advertised pricing while others do not. Here are the official local State rates which range from 2% - 18%: http://www.mywireless.org/state-issues/state-tax-rankings/

Online Refills

Often times taxes can be avoided and further money saved by refilling/paying your monthly amount due via an online discount re-seller. There are various re-sellers usually offering some type of discount program such as reward points or coupon codes. Aside from offering a refill PIN Code, some offer 'Real Time Refill' (RTR) which automatically directly credits your wireless account. Check the forum for discussion threads on discount re-sellers.

911 calls and coverage

Also of note regarding 911 calls, per FCC regulations/mandates:
The FCC’s basic 911 rules require wireless service providers to transmit all 911 calls to a PSAP, regardless of whether the caller subscribes to the provider’s service or not.
