RadioShack is going to launch its own no contract wireless service on September 5, according to a leaked internal memo, which Richard Lawler at Engadget obtained.

A no contract wireless service is pretty much what it sounds like. You pay for voice and data as you go instead of a fixed monthly fee. 

This is what Virgin Mobile and lots of other companies already do. 

RadioShack’s service will be powered by Cricket, a smaller carrier.

We’re not sure why kinds of phones will be support, or why RadioShack is doing this. We’ll get more details in a few weeks, hopefully.
