The Nextbit Robin won’t come to Verizon or Sprint networks, the company announced to backers this morning. The move, which comes after the CDMA variant was already delayed a couple of months, should shock no one. CDMA is hard, it’s expensive, and it’s a pain the ass. In a letter to backers, Nextbit Tom Moss said that the last thing they want to do is “disappoint” supporters, but they need to do that today, unfortunately. (more…)
Own a Moto X Pure Edition? Interested in receiving a new update? Feel free to check for one, as Sprint says that we should be expecting one as soon as today.
Sprint’s support page for the update doesn’t mention what’s included, nor do any of Motorola’s support documents. It could be Android 6.0.1 or it could just be a security patch for March. We don’t really know! Fun, right? (more…)
Still haven’t decided whether or not to pull the trigger on a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge? Today is the day that you can officially buy them in stores, so you can finally make a decision after your own personal hands-on time. While a number of you pre-ordered because you knew from day 1 that one of these would be your next phone, we know that a number of you have been waiting to get your paws on them in person. Thankfully, everyone should have them today, including the big carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, plus the big retailers as well (Best Buy, Target, etc.).
If you need quick links to them, we have those below. For specific pricing and all of the deals that each carrier or retailer is including, you’ll want to check out this post. We’re talking freebies that include the Gear VR, microSD cards, Netflix for a year, and more. (more…)
As you all know, Verizon (somehow) became the first US carrier to introduce Marshmallow to a Samsung flagship from 2015. That phone was the Galaxy Note 5. We don’t even want to know the politics behind Verizon being first, when they are almost always last, because it’ll likely anger us, so we’ll just point out that Sprint is now the second in line to do so. Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, on that other network with yellow involved and unlimited-not-unlimited data plans and something-for-life, but probably-not-for-life leasing options, are receiving the update to Android 6.0.1 today. (more…)
If you are considering either, we have links for you below, along with pricing and details for each carrier that includes information on the bonuses that all are offering. Should you pre-order, you’ll at the very least, land yourself a free Gear VR and 6-game bundle, but some of the carriers have thrown in extra goodies to sweeten the deal.
Ready to pre-order? (more…)
That didn’t take long. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were announced moments ago, yet here we are with all sorts of details on availability and a release date from US carriers. Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, Cricket, and T-Mobile have all weighed in already.
Below, you’ll find the details on when you’ll be able to buy the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. (more…)
On LG G5 Day, it only makes sense that US carriers start weighing in with their plans for the device. For whatever reason, everyone is being quite tip-lipped about a potential launch date, so don’t expect this phone to launch within the next couple of weeks. We wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t show up until some time in April.
Still, we’ll update this post as we have info from each carrier. (more…)
Earlier in the week, we started getting notified by US wireless carriers that RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm, was about to release its latest report that ranked Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile based on their 2015 end of year performance. On one hand, we had Verizon prepping us with news about their big win for the 5th consecutive report. On the other hand, we had T-Mobile in full conspiracy, damage control mode, releasing statements from CEO John Legere the minute the report went public. Boy, these are always fun times. (more…)
