GameStop Mobile will not be an MVNO

Days after amazing the gaming industry with the launch of an MVNO, or at least putting up a website with the appearance of offering mobile services, Engadget Mobile has confirmed in an interview with GameStop that no such MVNO will exist.

GameStop CEO Paul Raines was quoted by Engadget: "We don't have an MVNO (laughing). If you are trying to provide your customers with a bundle that comes with a pre-owned phone and will allow them to play games, make calls, and everything else -- you don't have to have a network to do that; you can sell SIM cards and pre-paid plans, those things exist, and we are in the process of testing several to see which ones makes sense."
