Simple Mobile is a Prepaid Service that contracts with T-Mobile and uses their Towers. So basically you can use any Unlocked T-Mobile phone on their Network. You can also use other unlocked GSM phones on Simple Mobile but will not achieve the 3G & 4G speeds unless you have a T-Mobile device.
Simple Mobile MMS service for Blackberry is non-existent and on Android it is terribly unreliable! A few days ago I decided to try out GO SMS Pro on my HD2 running Gingerbread 2.3.4. I immediately noticed that GO SMS Pro now has their own MMS support feature. I sent my sister a test MMS and it went through immediately without any issues. I couldn’t believe it so I tried it with my Mother as well, the same result. Needless to say the service so far for me has worked seamlessly. Thank you GO SMS Pro!
Simple Mobile Customers might also appreciate that you can go around the Short Code Message block on their network as well using GO SMS Pro. If you want to sign up with Twitter, Facebook, etc. and receive text notifications through these Short Code services just send your messages using GO SMS Pro MMS feature instead and you will be able to successfully signup, send and receive Short Code Messages on your Android phone with Simple Mobile.
