T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4, AT&T Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge All Get Stagefright Patches (Updated)

Samsung continues to dominate in pushing out Stagefright patches before any other Android OEM. After handing out updates to a variety of its devices through Sprint and AT&T at the end of last week, they added the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 and AT&T Galaxy S6/S6 Edge to the list late this morning, along with the Verizon Note Edge and Note 4(more…)

AT&T Now Offers a TV/Mobile Bundle, $200 a Month for 10GB of Shareable Data Among 4 Devices

AT&T announced the first offering of its kind this morning, coupling mobile and TV bills into one single plan. The plan attempts to make paying your bills more simple (and cheap), but for the GB hungry wireless consumers, it may not be very beneficial. For $200 a month, customers can get up to four TVs connected to HD and DVR-ready TV service, grouped with four phone lines with 10GB of data shareable among the lines. According to AT&T, this deal could save consumers $600 or more annually.  (more…)

Moto X Pure Edition Does Indeed Work on All US Carriers, Including Verizon

During today’s live press event from Motorola, the company announced that its new Moto X Pure Edition was an unlocked phone that worked on all of the major US carriers, including Verizon. People were excited at the thought of buying a phone for $399 that could be taken to any carrier of choice. That excitement died quickly, though, when Motorola posted official specs for the phone and left out any mention of Verizon’s CDMA bands or its LTE band 13.  (more…)

DEAL: Unlocked AT&T Galaxy S6 Edge for Just $599 ($215 Off)

The best deal we have seen to date for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge popped up at eBay last night and is still going strong. For just $599, you can have Samsung’s uniquely-designed, double-edged phone. This is the AT&T model with 32GB of storage that would run you $815 if you bought it outright from AT&T. A $215 discount is a substantial one in my book.

This phone is brand new, but has apparently been opened so that the seller could unlock it. It’s also “unlocked” and ready for use on other GSM carriers, which could mean that it’ll work fine on T-Mobile, though it does seem to be missing T-Mobile’s 1700 band.

The deal includes both white or black models and free shipping.

Comparison: Verizon vs. AT&T vs. T-Mobile vs. Sprint Data Plan Pricing

We get asked often to breakdown the costs associated with each major US wireless carrier in some form of a comparison. The task is not exactly simple, since each carrier uses its own tricks, sets of fees, data packages, and random charges to come up with a monthly bill that pads their pocket. It’s not all that straight forward, which is probably exactly how the carriers prefer it to be. They probably don’t want someone like us (or you) finding ways to quickly compare their plans to the competition and then making an educated decision on which is the best for you. Still, we gave it a shot. Well, we at least tried to break it all down into a simple comparison, one that is going to include more asterisks than you will probably know what to do with.  (more…)
