The ultimate day of love arrives next week as either a reminder that you forgot to make dinner reservations in a timely manner or will be by yourself with a carton of chocolate ice cream and bottle of Chardonnay. Or maybe you played your cards right and will have a wonderful Valentine’s Day evening with that special someone. No matter what, the situation can only get better if there is music involved.
Thanks to our friends at AT&T, a red MINI JAMBOX could be yours to both jumpstart the evening and hopefully help you seal the deal (minds out of the gutter). (more…)
The mobile carrier industry (AT&T in particular) is still reeling/adjusting from the UnCarrier approach that T-Mobile has brought over the last few months. AT&T attempted to scoop T-Mo just before CES by announcing a promotion that encouraged customers to leave their lines at T-Mobile and switch to their network, something that T-Mobile had been rumored to do for weeks and eventually did. However, after not even a month, AT&T is killing this program. (more…)
Aio Wireless announced this morning that it has dropped the rates of its plans while also upping the high-speed data caps of two. The new rates are as follows: Basic ($40), Smart ($50), and Pro ($60). The Basic plan
remains a feature phone only plan (now for smartphones too), with the Smart and Pro as your options for smartphones. (more…)
AT&T announced a new set of 10GB family plans with unlimited talk and text on this pre-Super Bowl Saturday afternoon that they are calling their “best-ever prices.” The family plans show solid discounts over previous rates and those that you would find from Verizon with similar amounts of data. There is a catch, of course, and that’s the requirement to sign-up for AT&T’s Next program or bring your own phone. Let’s talk about it all. (more…)
If you have needed a good excuse to upgrade your handset, Best Buy is looking to help you out. For a limited time, February 2 to February 15, you can sign up to receive a $50 Best Buy gift card to put towards the purchase of a new phone on either AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. You can sign up to four different lines for the credit, so if you were looking to surprise the whole family, then there you go. (more…)
Competition is a great thing, my friends. Perhaps in response to T-Mobile’s jabs and break-up plan or just because they darn well feel like it, AT&T is offering current customers $100 when they activate a new line of service. A retention plan befitting of the Dark Side? Perhaps, but money is money.
The offer may not be as great as it seems, considering a AT&T’s $36 dollar activation fee still applies. Still, for anyone looking to save a few bucks, the promotion runs through March 31 and applies to all post-paid smartphones, tablets, features phones and wireless home phones. For customers who take advantage, you’ll see the credit “within three billing cycles.”
T-Mobile is at it again this afternoon, releasing a press release just hours after an earnings call from AT&T, celebrating the carrier for leaving “the Dark Side.” What makes the release even funnier is that T-Mo had the cojones to use fake quotes for AT&T’s own Ralph de la Vega, implying that he has somehow seen the light and decided to put the customer first for a change.

This morning, we received a package from LG, which contained a G Flex on AT&T’s network. In the near future, we will pump out a full review for the device, but until then, it’s time for everyone’s favorite – an unboxing video!
This is my first time with my hands on the device, since Kellen took those privileges at CES this year. If you would like to see his brief hands-on with the device, you can do so here. Now the device is in our territory, so we will be sure to put it through the paces. (more…)
