After a bit of a wait, we now know when we can pre-order the LG G6, when it’ll arrive in stores, which carrier has good promos, and exactly how much it will cost at most carriers. Yes, my friends, we have LG G6 launch information!
As far as pre-orders go, tomorrow is pre-order day for participating carriers. AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint have both announced pre-orders for the early hours of March 17, so if you have been waiting, your chance to order the G6 is almost here. Now, launch days or in-store days are a bit different. (more…)
5G and Gigabit LTE, while not exactly the same thing depending on whose marketing department you ask, is coming.

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…)
In reaction to T-Mobile’s reaction to Verizon’s reaction to the unlimited craze that has once again swept the wireless industry in the US, Sprint has another new unlimited plan to share with you today. This one is dubbed “Best Unlimited HD Plan Ever” and includes the same style of unlimited plan that Verizon introduced on Monday, which T-Mobile already had to match. It includes HD streaming and tethering without the extra up-charge. (more…)
