We told you yesterday that the Moto X (1st gen) on AT&T was primed for a soak test of Lollipop at some point this week, with invites arriving in the inboxes of our readers. You may as well forget that we had that conversation, as AT&T updated its support pages for the device this morning, stating that Android 5.1 Lollipop is rolling out to all today. Well, it could just be in small batches with a greater rollout happening over the next few days, but because AT&T is now talking about the update publicly, we tend to believe that it’s ready for everyone.

Last week, Motorola told us that the Lollipop update for the AT&T Moto X (1st gen) was almost ready for your phone, they were just waiting on AT&T to give it the green light. AT&T must have signed off on it yesterday, because soak test invites for an “early preview of a new software release” went out to Motorola Feedback Network members. That software is Android 5.1, of course. (more…)
According to Motorola’s David Schuster, the man with all of the update knowledge, Moto X (1st Gen) owners on Verizon and AT&T don’t have too much longer to wait in receiving the Android 5.1 update.
As stated in a Google+ post, the update is set to hit Verizon’s testing labs next week, and Motorola is currently waiting for AT&T’s lab approval. AT&T has been testing the update in their labs for the past week. (more…)
Just tossing it out there for those in need of a cheap phone – HTC One M9 (AT&T model) for $449 today from eBay. This is an unlocked AT&T unit and is “manufacturer refurbished,” so it’ll probably work best on AT&T, though it could work decently on T-Mobile.
Our review of the HTC One M9 is here.
Free shipping is included.
Funny story here. AT&T just updated their Moto X (1st gen) support page to show that the device is getting an update to Android 5.1 starting today. While that would be fine and all, we have to point out that it appears they updated the wrong page. The Moto X (2nd gen) is actually the phone getting the update. Why would we say that? Well, because the “Verifying the Update” section on the support page details a phone under codename “victara,” which is the 2nd generation Moto X. The 1st generation Moto X actually carries the codename “ghost.” (more…)
Late on Friday, Motorola’s David Schuster dropped another handful of status notes on Android 5.1 updates for his company’s line of devices. The weekend has now passed, and most of the world checked out by the time Schuster shared the info, so here is the news to catch everyone up. (more…)
It’s that time of year again, where we check-in to see which wireless carrier you are all currently signed up with.
When we asked this same question almost a year ago, 60% of you were still with Verizon, while T-Mobile had managed to attract almost 20% of the community. AT&T, Sprint, and various prepaid options made up the other 20% or so. With T-Mobile still making Uncarrier moves, AT&T attempting to
copy match them offer-by-offer, and a variety of prepaid options posting insanely good monthly deals, we want to know if Verizon is still holding onto your business.
After voting, be sure to tell us why you are where you are. Is it all about coverage? Pricing? What?
