UPDATE: Rok Mobile has officially gone out of testing and is now available for everyone without the need for an invitation. The MVNO is indeed going through T-Mobile and Sprint and they now have a list which includes all devices that are officially supported through their BYOD program. Highlights include the iPhone 4-5s, Samsung Galaxy S3-S5 and the Nexus 5 among others.
Rok Mobile's Unveils Plan Pricing
Operating as an MVNO on what appears to be the Sprint and T-mobile networks, ROK mobile has officially gone live, well sort of. A little while back I wrote how ROK Mobile would go live on July 4th, and they indeed followed through with their claim, although their definition of live seems to be a bit different than most peoples. You see you can only get service through them by invitation only. You can request an invitation from them on their homepage which as of this writing for some reason requires you to scroll down to the bottom of their page to see the invite offer. What you would be signing up for is unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data as well as access to a library of over 20 million songs at a price of $49.99 monthly. You'll also have the option of selecting a phone from them or to bring your own device. What unlimited truly is remains to be seen, as we all know data typically gets soft capped after some fine print threshold. When the information becomes readily available I'll have it posted. No word yet on when the service will truly be live and not require an invitation.
