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?
The G Flex 2, LG’s latest smartphone with a drastically curved display, is now receiving an Android 5.1.1 update on the Sprint network. Android 5.1.1 brings mostly bug fixes for users who were already on Android 5.1, so if you do get the update, don’t get too excited. (more…)
Sprint announced this morning that all of its prepaid plans will now included “Rolling” or “Monthly Rolling Data,” which is just like AT&T’s Rollover Data and T-Mobile’s Data Stash. Well, at least in its basic form. (more…)
The Android 5.1.1 factory image for the Nexus 6 on Sprint and US Cellular is now available for download and flashing. (more…)
A week ago, we told you to expect a sweet little bundle of goodies should you decide to buy an LG G4. That bundle, according to our exclusive report, would include a free 32GB microSD card, extra 3,000mAh battery, and battery charging cradle. This morning, Sprint confirmed the bundle, while also announcing that their variant of the G4 would be available June 5. (more…)
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.

According to Sprint support, the Nexus 5 is set to receive an update this week to Android 5.1.1 build LMY48B (Sprint says it was supposed to start May 11). The update is listed as being nothing more than the update to 5.1.1 with included “security enhancements.” Tough to say what those security enhancements are, but in general, the update is expected to be quite minor.

Announced today, Sprint is teaming up with Boingo, the WiFi hotspot provider you have probably paid plenty of money to if you are a frequent flyer. Based out of most major US airports, Boingo offers Internet access for those willing to pay at select airports. (more…)
