Competition is a good thing, especially when it comes to smartphone plans. Almost certainly in response to T-Mobile’s doubling of data for entry-level price tier customers last Friday, AT&T announced a price cut for no-contract plans with two or fewer lines.
Single-line Mobile Share Value plans now start at $65, a $15 savings, while two-line accounts are $90. That price will net you 2GB of data, unlimited talk and text, unlimited international messaging in 190 countries and 50GB of AT&T Locker cloud storage. In addition, AT&T is offering a $100 bill credit for activating a new line of postpaid service. (more…)

On schedule for an April arrival, all sorts of Samsung Galaxy S5 variants have cruised through the FCC this week. The Verizon (SM-G900V), AT&T (SM-G900A), and T-Mobile (SM-G900T) models are confirmed, however, the FCC shows that numerous others stopped by as well. (more…)
Both Rootmetrics and JD Power released separate reports this week that focus on the consumer experience and network quality from U.S. wireless carriers. The reports peg Verizon as the clear winner in both situations, while Sprint and T-Mobile struggled to even remain in the conversation. AT&T faired well, but still remains in the distance from Verizon in overall rankings, especially in the reliability category. You may remember AT&T’s “we are the most reliable network now” campaign? According to these reports, that campaign should end now if it hasn’t already. (more…)
Word from T-Mobile is that the company has reached 300,000+ pre-registration sign-ups for the Galaxy S5 from Samsung. Sign-ups began the day the phone was announced, which was only a week and a half ago.

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile, your Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat) update is ready today. You can pull it over-the-air or via Kies, but understand that the file is roughly 500MB in size. It’s a big one.
The build once finished is N900TUVUCNB4 and Android 4.4.2, so you will be running the newest version of Android available.
Unfortunately, T-Mobile hasn’t listed a changelog other than “user improvements.” Once we have the list from Samsung (which could be here today), we’ll be sure to update this post. Until then, get to updating! (more…)
