Same Network - Different Carrier

These are separate, "alternative" companies that use the same wireless networks as the major carriers. They're also known as Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO), wholesale carriers, or cellular "re-sellers". You get your phone, plan and customer service from these companies instead of the underlying carrier. Some use more than one network and the type of wireless device determines whether a CDMA or GSM carrier is used.
