Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are now live! Samsung said it would make them available today by 3PM Eastern and they delivered.
We have links to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile devices below to save you a Google search and a few clicks. Keep in mind that T-Mobile is the only one that isn’t actually doing a pre-order, but if you at least pre-register before August 21, they will give you a free year of Netflix after buying one of the two phones before September 30. Everyone else will let you pre-order. Most also have promo offers accompanying the devices for a short period of time.
Get after it. (more…)

AT&T announced the first offering of its kind this morning, coupling mobile and TV bills into one single plan. The plan attempts to make paying your bills more simple (and cheap), but for the GB hungry wireless consumers, it may not be very beneficial. For $200 a month, customers can get up to four TVs connected to HD and DVR-ready TV service, grouped with four phone lines with 10GB of data shareable among the lines.
