That time has finally arrived, Verizon Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners. Your Android Nougat update is here.
The update should start rolling out today, according to Verizon support pages. Specifically, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will see software version G930VVRU4BQA2, while the Galaxy S7 Edge will get G935VVRU4BQA2. Verizon hasn’t said how big the update is, but it’ll likely be large. Make sure you have plenty of battery and data remaining on your account before you download this guy over 4G.
So, what should you expect from the update? A lot! (more…)
Heads-up, deal hunters. Verizon is hosting some solid discounts on a bunch of accessories this week.
I don’t know what the occasion is, but you can find steals on items like the Samsung Gear Fit2 for just $99.99 ($80 off). They also have discounts on SanDisk microSD cards, including the Ultra Plus 128GB card for $59.99 ($40 off), or Motorola’s USB Type-C TurboPower charger for $19.99 ($20 off). Finally, and it appears to be out of stock now, but they were selling the Samsung Gear 360 for just $99.99 (!). That’s a $250 discount on Samsung’s 360-degree camera, so you may want to keep an eye on it just incase they re-stock.
Now that Verizon has a new unlimited plan available after spending years trying to force you off of your grandfathered unlimited plan, it might be time to figure out if those old digs are worth hanging onto. In my opinion, it’s probably worth making the switch, unless you fall into a pretty narrow category of grandfathered unlimited users.
I’m not trying to sell you on the idea, but we have had a handful of people ask – both in comments and via email – for our take on the situation. So in order to do that, let me walk through my scenario, because I did indeed cancel my grandfathered unlimited plan for Verizon Unlimited. (more…)
The LG G6 is official as of today, but the question now becomes – when will it be available? Unfortunately, we have no idea at all. LG won’t say, nor will its carrier partners. What we do know is that all of the major US carriers plan to carry the phone when it does arrive. (more…)
After a few days worth of soak tests, Verizon and Motorola started pushing the update to Android Nougat to the DROID Turbo 2. The update is arriving as software version 25.11.10.
The update sure appears to be live for just about everyone, as our inbox filled up nicely yesterday afternoon with emails from excited Turbo 2 owners. To check, head into Settings>About>System updates. (more…)
Verizon announced this morning that it will deliver 5G broadband connectivity to select customers later this year on their “newly built 5G network.” In total, 11 markets will gain access as a part of this pre-commercial pilot. (more…)
Verizon isn’t done tweaking its plan offerings, even after the introduction of Verizon Unlimited. Today, the company announced a new addition to its prepaid line-up, a 2GB plan for $40 per month. (more…)
So it’s 2017 and unlimited data is officially back at all of the major US carriers. (Don’t even try to tell me that you saw this coming.) It seemed like just days ago we were paying a hundred dollars for 2GB and 4GB of data and having our grandfathered unlimited data plans ripped from our cold, crusty, fingers with the shadiest of moves. But hey, we’re not about to complain that we can all get back on unlimited data for some decent prices. (more…)
