According to emails we have received over the weekend, as well as our own pre-order, Galaxy Note 7 units are beginning to ship out from Verizon and T-Mobile. Unlike what we saw earlier this year from T-Mobile, where those who pre-ordered the Galaxy S7 were receiving their device a solid week ahead of launch, carriers appear to be doing better (or worse, depending on who you are) about shipping phones out closer to the actual release date.
For the Galaxy Note 7, that date is still August 19 across the globe. (more…)
Oh boy, the HTC Nexus phones just stopped off at the FCC this morning. As we all know, that’s huge news in terms of how this story begins to unfold in front of us. After seeing supposed pictures of one of the phones hours ago, we now know model numbers, get confirmation that HTC is indeed making two Nexus phones, and other details, like universal LTE support across US carriers, including Verizon.
Let’s dive into the filings that went live this morning and share what we are finding. Also, as we find more, we’ll be updating this post. (more…)
The HTC 10, a phone that is by all means one of the best Android phones of the year and HTC’s best by a mile in about four, has been axed from T-Mobile’s line-up after just two months. At least, that’s what we are left to believe after the phone disappeared from T-Mobile’s site back in July and never returned. (more…)
If you happen to own a LG V10 on T-Mobile, be on the lookout for a new update to software version H90120j. Inside, you will be treated to a Google security update, as well as fixes to the “software stability.” (more…)
Ready to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 7? Or maybe you just want to know how much this bad boy is going to cost? We’ve got some of that info for you below, which is a good thing since pre-orders do open tonight almost everywhere. (more…)
It’s been a year since the last time we asked which carrier you are using for your mobile phone needs, so it’s time to update our numbers.
Last year, the majority of voters were rocking Verizon, with Big Red capturing nearly 60% of the vote. Following Verizon was T-Mobile at 20%, then AT&T with 9%. Sprint, which got less votes than the total of “Prepaid or Other,” had 3% of the vote.
This time, to get a sense of which prepaid options people are using, we have included the names of the top US prepaid carriers, so let us know exactly who you are using.
Extra credit if you feel like telling us how you think your carrier is performing.
T-Mobile’s Binge On, the added feature for customers that allows them to stream video from select services and have it not count against their monthly data allotment, is getting quadrupled in size. In total, there are now more than 100 services for users to stream DVD-quality (480p) video from.
As for which services have been added, let’s name a few. Starting today, you will find ABC, Apple Music, Disney Channel, FOX NOW, Nat Geo TV, FXNOW, as well as the Big Ten Network.
Check out the full list of new services below. (more…)
Sprint is reporting excellent fiscal Q1 numbers, detailing its best postpaid phone net additions in nine years. According to Sprint, the company’s “focus on delivering the best value proposition in wireless,” resulted in the fourth consecutive quarter of positive net additions with 173,000 in the quarter, compared to net losses of 12,000 in fiscal Q1 of 2015. To put that in layman’s, Sprint is now gaining more postpaid customers than it is losing, and for this company, that’s a major victory. (more…)
