According to T-Mobile’s product guru Des Smith, the G3 from LG is set to receive an OTA update to Lollipop on April 7. With this rollout, most carrier variant G3 owners will be running Lollipop, including those on AT&T and Sprint. (more…)
First of all, today is April Fools’ Day. Don’t believe anything that happens in the next 24 hours, especially anything that appears on the internet. Today is both entertaining as hell, and also the most annoying day on Earth every single year. Companies like Google started in on the jokes yesterday and haven’t stopped yet this morning. Some are good – others, not so much. But hey, it’s all in good fun (until we can’t take it anymore and want it to be April 2).
Second, we have a rolling post of some of the better April Fools’ pranks over here. We started it yesterday and will continue to add to it throughout as more good ones arrive.
Finally, if you can’t take a bit of sarcasm and fun and lightheartedness, and find yourself just criticizing April Fools’ Day like a crusty old blogger, just go back to bed and wake up tomorrow. (more…)
We now have the Samsung Galaxy S6 in our possession. I’m not sure I can put into words how ready for this moment I am. You see, we feel a little screwed by Samsung for not hosting a US satellite press event during MWC for this phone and its brother, like they have done every year for every phone as far back as I can remember, so this is, as odd as this sounds, the first time I have placed my hands on one. The excitement truly cannot be contained. (more…)
This morning, T-Mobile announced that it has taken its Uncarrier approach to coverage maps. What does that mean? Well, they are ditching the “predictive coverage estimations” that other carriers use to show network availability and are instead using crowdsourced, customer-verified network connections to show how far their network reaches.

Receive your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge from T-Mobile already? Expect a software update almost immediately. According to T-Mobile support, a day 1 update is supposed to be ready for each, an update that wipes out some bugs and brings some stability to this year’s flagship line from the Korean manufacturer. (more…)
T-Mobile told us that while the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch is officially scheduled for April 10, you would more than likely get your phone well before that date if you pre-order through them. They weren’t lying. Many of our readers who pre-ordered on Friday when the links went live and chose overnight shipping, have their devices already. That’s right, T-Mobile pushed them out so fast they were delivered on Saturday. Others are shipping as well and should have them today or tomorrow. Again, April 10 is the official launch day, yet here we are on March 30 with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in the hands of customers. How cool is that? (more…)
Regardless, each of these phones is now purchasable through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. You can also get them from many retail locations, such as Best Buy. And as a bonus, if you order the Galaxy S6 through Best Buy, you get a free wireless charger. (more…)
Believe it or not, Verizon has the best full retail (off contract) pricing on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. To see pricing for each carrier, you can check out our pricing guide, but the numbers are substantially lower in all tiers (32GB, 64GB, and 128GB) on Big Red than they are at AT&T and T-Mobile, or even US Cellular. Sprint is hiding their pricing and doing some gimmicky lease program, so we can’t really compare anything there. (more…)
