In the midst of all the currently available wireless carrier options that one has for service these days, a new contender seems to have emerged that is specifically targeting those who are looking for low cost wireless service plus added benefits of streaming music features, like access to a library of over 20 million songs from various artists. ROK Mobile is a new wireless provider that seeks out the value conscious individual looking for wireless service, and they aim to do it by grabbing people’s attention with a low cost $50 plan that offers up free music. According to ROK Mobile, they are the first ever(exact words were World’s first)integrated streaming music and mobile service platform. We’d beg to differ on the world’s first part, but they do offer streaming music service integrated with a mobile plan and all for a low monthly cost.
For the monthly amount of $49.99 subscribers would end up getting unlimited voice, unlimited text, and unlimited data, plus access to over 20 million songs through the ROK Mobile streaming music app. If you’re a data hungry user and you converse a lot through both phones calls and text, then perhaps ROK Mobile is worth checking out for you. The ROK music app comes free of charge of course, subs who use the mobile service get access to the app for free.The mobile carrier also boasts 4G LTE service coverage as well as no contracts, hidden fees, and no activation fees if you choose to set up service.
Since there’s no contracts with ROK, and you can buy a device through them to use for the services they provide, expect near full retail costs which can be quite expensive on available devices like the Galaxy S5. Then again, this is no different than buying new high end devices from other non contract carriers, and you can also choose to bring your own device if you already have something that you can use. ROK seems to believe in their music app enough that it has the power to draw people in to the mobile service who really love their tunes, so much so that their giving people the chance to try it out for a free two week trial. ROK runs off of service of larger carriers as they have no infrastructure of their own, so the experience of coverage could end up the same as some of the larger carriers.
