AT&T Offering Free Unlimited International Messaging for Existing MobileShare Plans Starting February 28 (Updated)

Attempting to gain back a bit of momentum that T-Mobile continues to steal away, AT&T announced from MWC this week that the company will now offer unlimited messaging to land and mobile lines free of charge starting at the end of this week. Previously, AT&T charged customers $10 a month for international messaging. AT&T also announced that they are reducing the price of international calls to Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean to 1-cent-a-minute in a plan that costs $5 a month.  (more…)

AT&T Brings LTE Roaming to 13 Additional Countries Outside US

Still the only carrier offering such a service, AT&T announced from MWC today that they have expanded their 4G LTE roaming service to 13 new countries outside of the United States, bringing the total to 15 markets.

AT&T currently holds agreements to allow for LTE roaming in over 200 different countries, but deploying such a service is easier said than done. The service for travelers certainly costs a pretty penny, and AT&T has yet to announce official pricing for the new markets.  (more…)

Kit Kat Update Now Available for AT&T HTC One and LG G2

AT&T announced today that their variants of both the HTC One and LG G2 are ready to receive updates to Android 4.4 “Kit Kat.” The HTC One update was sort of expected, but I’d be lying if I said I was expecting the G2 to see the same joys this early.

“All New HTC One” Stops by FCC, Looking Ready for AT&T

The FCC briefly posted documents for the “All New HTC One” this afternoon before pulling them for whatever reason. That’s unfortunate, as we can almost always find dirty little secrets hidden in these documents about that device that have yet to surface. For now, we’ll have to go with what Engadget found, as they were the ones to uncover them.

According to their findings, this particular model of the HTC One (2014) or “M8,” is headed to AT&T with LTE bands of 2, 4, 5, 7 and 17. If HTC plans to live to see another day, they will undoubtedly bring the phone to all other carriers at the same time, so don’t take this as a sign that AT&T will have some sort of exclusive first dibs. The FCC listing also showed that there is NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi on board. Again, there is probably more info in there, but with the docs now gone, we can’t dig for more.  (more…)
