AT&T Tells Us to “Get Ready for What’s Next in Wireless” on July 16

att july event

AT&T has something planned for July 16, at least that’s what a new teaser image that arrived in our inbox states. It doesn’t necessarily claim that an event is on the horizon, only that we should “get ready for what’s next in wireless.” That could mean an announcement of new LTE markets, new phones (maybe the Moto X?), a music service in partnership with Beats Audio (yes, that’s a rumor floating around out there), or something completely out of the ordinary like AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega figuring out that he can shave wirelessly without having his electric razor plugged into the wall.

Until we hear more, feel free to make to get creative in the comment with guesses.

  • T TYlis

    They are going to charge some new administrative fees. The store by me is over 1500sq ft and it never has more than 6 customers in it. I am sure that’s how they plan to rent more huge stores..it’s a phallus thing.

  • Alan Fortte

    It may be a new range of plans in order to compete with T-Mobile?

  • sonicyoof

    Not their new prepaid thing?

  • Ralph de la vega
  • noc007

    Less bureaucracy. Oh wait, we’re talking about AT&T where that’s the only way they know how to operate.

  • Richard Yarrell

    What’s next is higher bills and worse handset updates. After all At&t thinks they are Verizon anyway.

  • MARPATdroid

    In order to “save” for their mobile data users, they are going to an unlimited data plan charging *only* 6 Cents per MB used.

  • Michael Harrison

    It’s LTE-A announcement. It’s expected to roll out by the end of this year.

  • WickedToby741

    Dish partnership? Overseas acquisition? LTE-A announcement?

  • John

    This has to be a response to T-Mobile’s event tomorrow.

  • matzi

    being a former att employee…more than likely the birth of their security system

  • TheCheapGamer

    Less data for even more money.
    Sounds about right…oh wait, no first they’ll introduce an even faster LTE then reduce the data.

  • Lakerzz

    A “Wiki-Minaj” app. Any dumb question you ask it, gets an even dumber answer… of course, announced by Niki Minaj!!

  • Kevin McDole

    Can’t wait just switched today.

  • BulletTooth_Tony

    HD Voice. Their switch back to AMR full rate 12.2 stress tested the network as it is, and AMR-WB at 12.65 was found to be plenty workable.

    That…and rollover data would be nice.

  • Butters619

    I don’t see Motorola introducing their every carrier phone at an AT&T event

  • Nym

    Or … Maybe they’ll announce that they are going to actually start caring about their long time customers offering them incentives to not move to a network that’s really does.

  • Nym

    What about a live demo from my area where AT&T’s data rates v decimate the competition?

  • moew

    next in wireless… what do we have already:

    cell phones



    So I can only guess that what is “next in wireless” is something new that has wireless.

    Oh that would be Boingo!

    • WickedToby741

      Add your smart TV to AT&T Data Share and pay even more on your wireless bill every month!

  • Rbq

    Something something Jennifer Lopez. HA HA HA HA HA!

  • Trevor

    Maybe they’re bringing Cingular back.

  • Most likely their 3G/4G networks are going full 4G LTE, or could be LTE-A going live before end of the year.

  • Justin

    I think it has something to do with the new Motorola phones

  • Marco Mendoza

    hopefully data only plans.

  • paul_cus

    Rollover data?

    • That would be amazing, but I doubt it would happen. But if it does, that would make my recent switch to AT&T that much better.

    • Mike Hilal

      Verizon would be so mad if ATT did that

    • Nym

      Heh …. Wishful v thinking.. How about the return of unlimited data?

      • metool6

        Im glad they let me keep my unlimited data when I go to upgrade my phone.

    • michael arazan

      You have to have data to roll it over. How about Data Compression, that compresses your data before it is sent out so you use less data giving you 2-3 times the amount for your tiered price gouging plan

  • Chezitman

    Spoiler Alert: Its just them copying Verizon’s warranty price hike.

  • Oh please let it be a chain of new stores just for black people!

    The Hispanics always get all the cool stuff 🙁

    • yeehaw!

      No way man.. it will be catering to rednecks with an old pickup truck on cinderblocks in the middle of the store for kids to play in.

    • JohnBergman

      I came here to make a joke about this same exact thing, but it looks like you beat me to it. +1 to you.

      • Thanks, I try to keep my comment-to-like ratio as high as possible 🙂 Right now it’s >5 with almost 300 comments 🙂

        • normmcgarry

          I +1’ed you just because you care about your disqus ratio.

          • It’s more that I care about the DL community. My Disqus ratio is just a way to quantify whether I’m leaving quality comments or not. If I keep my ratio high, then it means that I’m leaving clever (or useful) comments that are contributing to the fun of the community and not just adding to the noise. Because let’s face it, clever comments are a big part of why we all enjoy this site so much 🙂

            I implore you to find someone who has made over a few hundred comments and kept their likes above 5 per comment 🙂 I’m sure they exist, but they’re few and far between 🙂

            But, I gotta say the contests sure bring me down quick because it’s really rare to get voted up when leaving those comments.

            Anyway, thanks for the +1…and +1 to you sir. Your comment made me smile 🙂 You don’t have a bad ratio yourself 🙂

          • michael arazan

            Get Jay-Z behind it and it will be the number 1 carrier in a few months
