First it was with Dish, then Sprint, and now Verizon – Google has apparently had talks with almost everyone to potentially launch its own wireless network. According to a new report out of The Information, Big Red and Google chatted most recently about the Mountain View search giant using its network as an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) in cities where Google sells its Fiber at-home internet. That would be awesome, except Fiber is currently only in two markets. (more…)
An update is rolling out for the Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung to customers on Sprint, bringing the ability to make calls over WiFi. While it may not be anything too worthy of writing your mother about, this is still more than Note 3 owners on Verizon can talk about. Still no Android 4.4.2 for those poor folks. (more…)
At only a month or so old, Verizon is already adjusting its MORE Everything data plans to better align with their biggest competitor, AT&T. You may recall AT&T’s headline grabbing move at the beginning of February, where it announced its “Best Ever Prices” for a family of four, with a 10GB $160 plan leading the charge. Verizon reached out today to note that they had recently made a move to match this offer. (more…)
Hardcore Android enthusiasts currently rocking an LG G2 on Verizon should enjoy this news, as an unofficial OTA build of Kit Kat has been released by third-party developers for flashing.

Verizon is currently running a BOGO (buy one, get one free) offer for the all new HTC One (M8) that is certainly something to consider, though you’ll have to sign a 2-year contract to get in on the deal. If contracts do not scare you, then to save some extra cash, there are a couple of coupon codes that could save you up to 30% on the $199 2-year contract price. (more…)
Verizon not only has an in-store availability exclusive (through April 9) on the new HTC One (M8), but they are also hosting quite the deal for interested parties. For a limited time, starting today at 1PM Eastern, customers will be able to buy the One (M8) and receive a 2nd One (M8) for free, as long as they sign 2-year contracts.
Big Red is selling the One (M8) for $199 on-contract. (more…)
Just as we exclusively reported yesterday, the all new HTC One (M8) will be on sale today at 1PM Eastern in the U.S. All of the major U.S. carriers will put the device up for sale through their online stores, but Verizon will have some in-stock, in-store today. That’s right, if you want to get your hands on this phone now, you can.
If you don’t want to go to Verizon, all U.S. carriers will have in-store stock within first few weeks of April. Most in-store before April 10.
