AT&T Pushes Update to LG G3, Features Bug Fixes and Stability Improvements

AT&T has an update rolling out to LG G3 owners, bringing stability improvements, as well as Google security patches. While it is not Lollipop, even though that should be here before the end of the year, any update is better than no update.

Also included in the update is a “no power on” fix via a Qualcomm patch, Google Mobile Service update, Mobile TV 6.0 (bloatware), and removal of the Skyfire Toolbar.

Ready to go out and buy a Nexus 6, the newest flagship phone from Google? Then you are probably wondering when and where you can do that at, I would imagine.

AT&T Cancels Plans to Pursue Inflight Internet Service

AT&T’s intention to enter the in-flight service biz was announced with much fanfare last April; the wireless carrier planned to challenge incumbents like Gogo by constructing an air-to-ground network in the US which would have delivered internet at 4G LTE speeds to domestic flights. Those plans, though, have now fallen through. An AT&T spokesperson told RunwayGirl Network that the company ultimately deemed the venture too risky.

AT&T’s recent acquisition of Mexico carrier Iusacell may have had something to do with it. The $2.5 billion deal apparently signaled a prioritization of the company’s capital in safer markets; the spokesperson said that AT&T will focus its investments on “international and video.”

Buy Moto 360 Leather or Metal Individual Watch Bands Right Now From AT&T

Motorola finally made the metal band versions of the Moto 360 available yesterday through their online shop for $299.

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, even though Motorola once again mentioned the fact that they planned to sell individual bands at some point in the near future.

Well, guess what? AT&T has them available right now, at suggested retail prices of $80 (metal) and $30 (leather). That’s right, if you want a replacement watch band for your Moto 360, AT&T will sell you one or two or three today in a variety of colors today. (more…)
