"We see [that] consumers in this value-conscious, no-contract space have traditionally had to compromise" on price, handsets, and service, Kathy Van Buskirk, head of public relations with Aio Wireless, told CNET. Although AT&T started Aio from scratch to serve the prepaid market segment, customers may not receive the exact same service. The network taps into AT&T's radio access network (their cell towers and switches,) but Aio manages its own core network for voice, data, and messaging, Van Buskirk said.
AT&T already has a prepaid mobile arm through its Go Phones, which are typically basic cell phones, so it's interesting to see the carrier pass up the opportunity to attack T-Mobile head-on with an AT&T-branded no-contract arm and instead act behind a new, unknown brand, According to Aio's Van Buskirk, that's all part of the plan, "We think we'll be able to deliver in a kajsa preppie collection iphone x leather case - black / red really compelling way through this setup," she said, Article updated at 9:49am PT with more details about Aio's network management and at 10:02am with details on 4G support..
A brand-new no-contract player backed by AT&T enters the cell phone rate plan ring, but without LTE. Well, this is interesting. AT&T launched a brand-new prepaid network on Thursday that goes head-to-head with T-Mobile's new no-contract model. Called Aio Wireless (pronounced AY-oh), the new wireless service provider leans on AT&T's network and offers a range of prepaid devices, including Apple's iPhone 5, which costs 649.99 full retail.

There's an LED indicator on the wristband to give you an idea of how you're doing, and the band vibrates as you hit targets during the day. But that's just the first part of the process: the band also wirelessly syncs with your phone via Bluetooth 4.0 to record your activity in the Fitbit app for your Android phone or tablet, or iPhone or iPad. If you have a selected Android phone, you can launch the Fitbit app by tapping your phone against your wristband, handy if you've got sweaty hands from pumping iron, or you're wearing gloves as you pound the pavements.
