This morning, AT&T went ahead and unwrapped the newest version of their exclusive Active line, also known this year as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. The phone, as you should have expected, assuming you have any knowledge of previous models, is a lot like the standard Galaxy S7 only it has been toughened up to be able to withstand the elements.
With the Galaxy S7 Active, you are looking at a phone with a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED “shatter resistant” screen, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM, rear 12MP Dual Pixel camera, front 5MP camera, 32GB storage with microSD support, and a whopping 4000mAh battery. It also has IP68 resistant to water and dust, Military Grade Body (MIL STD-810G), a customizable Active button (like previous Active phones), fingerprint reader, and access to Samsung Pay. Full specs here. (more…)
As a means to show appreciation to its loyal customers, AT&T introduced the thanks program this morning. With thanks, select AT&T customers will receive added benefits, such as free movie tickets and pre-sale access to concert tickets. More interestingly, AT&T also details that “private offers” will include device and accessory perks, as well as data giveaways. Free data? That’s sweet. (more…)
Yesterday, we reported changes coming soon to AT&T’s GoPhone plans that would reward each with more data without a price hike. AT&T has now confirmed and announced the plan changes, which will arrive this Friday. (more…)
AT&T is about to increase the data buckets on its GoPhone plans later this week, according to sources of ours. This move comes on the heels of a data increase back in January, but also helps bring the plans in line with Verizon, who seems to be taking prepaid quite seriously these days. (more…)
Beginning June 9, consumers and businesses with AT&T can lower their monthly payments, thanks to changes the carrier is making on its Next program. Once June 9 rolls around, AT&T will only offer two different Next plans, down from the current offering of four plans. These two plans are the straightforward AT&T Next plan and the AT&T Next Every Year plan. (more…)
Galaxy S6 owners who are stuck with AT&T, your Marshmallow update is incoming. In fact, you may be able to pull it right now. A number of owners of the phone over at reddit have been downloading and updates their Galaxy S6s all morning, so you may want to take a look. (more…)
In what might be considered a humorous and topical usage of a metaphor, AT&T wants to “break down wireless walls” between the US and its neighbors to the north and south. To clarify, right in time for any summer traveling, AT&T is bundling a Mexico roaming feature into its existing Mobile Share Value plans of 15GB and higher. With this plan, customers receive unlimited calling, texting, and use of their data in and between Mexico and the US. This roaming feature will start being included in the Mobile Share Value plans on May 20. (more…)
A little over a month ago, we talked about the idea of there being a Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, not only because Samsung mentioned the device in a listing for one of their apps, but because this is a long-running line of exclusive phones for AT&T that makes a lot of sense. It’s a pretty brilliant product idea (super high-end rugged phone) that should live on, even if we do all hate the fact that you can’t get it outside of a single carrier.
Today, thanks to a leak out of a Vietnamese Samsung-focused site, we get what might be our first look at the phone. As you probably expected, it’s rugged as hell and has all the camo a rugged person could ask for. (more…)
