Spectrum Mobile: Everything You Need to Know About Its Internet and Cable TV services 9

The 21st Century is all about connectivity. Internet access has become such a huge part of our lives that it is very difficult to imagine life without it. Whether you’re at home or at work, you’re most likely connected to the internet over Wi-Fi or Ethernet. But what about when you’re on the go? Or what if your broadband connection is down? This is where reliable cellular plans like Spectrum Mobile prove so useful for internet users. This blog explores everything you need to know about the provider’s mobile service.

 

Spectrum Mobile: Everything You Need to Know About Its Internet and Cable TV services 10

 

Spectrum Mobile Explained

Charter Spectrum is one of the largest service providers in the United States, offering Spectrum TV, internet, and home phone services across 44 states. In addition to these services the provider also offers Spectrum Mobile. This is what is known as an MVNO or mobile virtual network operator. What does an MVNO mean, you ask? It simply means that Spectrum does not own the network it uses to deliver cellular service. Right now, the provider is using Verizon’s cellular network infrastructure under license. It supplements this with its own Wi-Fi hotspots which form a network across the country.

This may seem like a disadvantage. However, in real terms, it’s the consumers like you and me who benefit the most. Since Verizon is the country’s largest cellular provider, you can rest assured Charter delivers a flexible and reliable service across a large coverage area. At the same time, the budget-friendly pricing and data limits make it a top choice for subscribers all over the United States. One reason Spectrum Mobile has become so popular over the last few years is that it offers you the option of porting your current number, so you don’t have to change it. Sounds like a good offer, right? We haven’t even started yet.
 

What Does Plan Pricing Look Like?

In keeping with its reputation of offering reasonably priced options, Spectrum Mobile comes with two distinct plans. The By-The-Gig plan costs you around $14 per GB. The provider allows you to share this data plan with five other lines. This comes in very handy if you have multiple family members that also have data consumption needs.
Spectrum Mobile also offers the Unlimited Data plan. Recognizing data consumption patterns over the past few years, the provider seems to understand that people often require more data than what comes with their plan. With a By-The-Gig plan, this can quickly turn into a hefty data bill. The Unlimited Data plan, starting at $45 per month, offers a handy solution. Get unlimited data to use and share with your family without worrying about overages or data bills.
 

What Else Do These Plans Include?

When subscribing to reliable mobile services, you can be sure your digital experience will improve considerably. Mobile broadband services are a relatively expensive way to access the Spectrum internet, but Spectrum Mobile and its flexible plans are priced very reasonably. However, the price factor isn’t the only reason you should be subscribing to the provider’s mobile service. Both the By-The-Gig plan and the Unlimited Data plan include the following features:

  • Unlimited long-distance calls in the US, Canada, and Mexico.
  • Free texts to over 200 countries from within the US.
  • Competitively priced international roaming rates.
  • Complete access to the provider’s nationwide hotspot network.
  • No long-term contract requirements.
  • Flexibility to switch between the two plans.  
     

Eligibility to Be a Spectrum Mobile Subscriber

You might be convinced at this point that Spectrum Mobile is the service you have been looking for all this time. But there is one important thing you need to know before you reach out to the provider. In order to subscribe to the provider’s mobile services, you must already have a Spectrum phone number. New customers can get a maximum of two lines per account. Older customers have the option to get up to 5 lines on one Spectrum Mobile account. If you’re a new subscriber, you can add more lines after a 30-day period.

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

Published

attention!-bug-on-android-is-frustrating-users-using-pin-code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.
