Once June 1 rolls around, it’s going to be harder than ever to sign-up for a new 2-year contract at AT&T and buy a phone at a low subsidized price. According to multiple sources of ours, the wireless carrier will begin transitioning to a world where contracts are on the backburner and AT&T Next is the option that will be presented to you when it’s time to upgrade and your previous contract has ended. In some cases, it will be the only option you have, unless you feel like waiting a few extra days for your brand new phone to arrive. (more…)
AT&T is going to introduce a new AT&T Next option on May 28, according to sources of ours. The new plan, called “AT&T Next 12 With Down Payment,” will offer customers who wouldn’t normally qualify for AT&T Next a chance to buy new phones, upgrade often, and not worry about signing a contract (because those are going away soon).

At the end of our HTC One M9 review, we told you to skip the phone and instead opt for last year’s HTC One M8 should you really love the all-metal design and style of HTC’s products. The One M8 is a better phone. It looks better. It has a better camera, even if it is a bit of a gimmick. It has a better display. It’s battery life is somehow, confusingly better. And best of all, it’s waaaaaaay cheaper.
Take today’s deal for example, where you can buy a brand new HTC One M8 for AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint at just $299 through Best Buy. That’s $299 for a phone at full retail, without a contract or payment plan. You pay $299 and then walk away with a phone that you own.
The deal includes “limited quantities” and is only available today, so be quick if interested.
Over the weekend, the Keen team released PingPong Root, which is a 1-click root app for a number of Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge variants. Even AT&T and Verizon models are included. But maybe more importantly, this root method doesn’t trip Samsung’s KNOX, so things like Samsung Pay (once it goes live) and other security-related features should still work afterwards. (more…)
Straight Talk, one of the most popular prepaid wireless service options in the US, announced this week that they are bumping up their $45 from 3GB of high-speed data to 5GB per month should you BYOP (bring your own phone). Also, if you are already a part of Straight Talk, and you brought your own phone with you long ago, you will automatically be bumped up to the new 5GB limit. (more…)
