GameStop Becomes Mobile Phone Service Provider

This kinda sorta adds up. GameStop starts offering iPhone and iPad trade-ins. GameStop is rumored to be creating their own Android tablet. And now, GameStop will become a mobile phone service provider.

Plans range from $5-$55 for unlimited text and voice, or $55/1GB of data for tablets. What a ripoff!

The oddest part about all of this is that GameStop isn't planning on selling phones to go with these plans, you have to bring your own GSM-based phones. Although, I would assume they could get you started with a pre-owned iPhone or iPad. But they'd have to be the AT&T kind, Verizon iPhones are CDMA.
