HTC One (M8) Available Today at 1PM – Online at All Carriers, In-store at Verizon

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.

“All New HTC One” Inventory Arriving at Verizon Stores, “Exclusive” Likely Only In-store

Sources have informed us that “All New HTC One” inventory is now arriving in Verizon stores, ready for tomorrow’s launch. That lines up with our report last week, saying that Big Red would indeed have stock available minutes after HTC makes the phone official.

With that said, we also reported last week that Verizon would have some sort of exclusive on the device, however, that will likely just be for in-store availability. AT&T and other carriers should have the phone available for order (online or via phone) tomorrow as well, if not within a couple of days. Verizon itself said on Facebook over the weekend (before editing the post) that they would have the phone “in our stores exclusively on 3.25.14.” The word “stores” is the key word here.  (more…)

“All New HTC One” Cases Arrive at Verizon Stores, Ready for March 25 Launch?

We already know that the “All New HTC One” will arrive March 25 through events in New York City and London. But outside of Carphone Warehouse announcing that they will have it available for purchase shortly after HTC unveils it, we have yet to hear from a U.S. carrier. With that said, sources of ours have been led to believe that Verizon may be your option next week.  (more…)

Verizon Introduced a New $75 Single Line 2GB Plan, Secret 2GB $60 “SAVE” Plan Too

Verizon quietly introduced a new $75 single line plan today that gives customers 2GB of monthly data, along with unlimited talk and text. According to sources of ours, this new plan is a “limited time promotion,” though we have no word on when it will end.

If that plan doesn’t sound like the deal for you, know that Verizon also has a semi-secret option called the “SAVE” plan that is $60 for 2GB of data, plus unlimited talk and text. You need to qualify for it, but it’s worth knowing about should you be in the market for discounted service and a new phone.  (more…)

T-Mobile Celebrates First Anniversary of 4G LTE Rollout, Announces Major Network Upgrade Program

Today, the Magenta Monster covers 210 million people in 273 metro areas nationwide with its LTE network. To celebrate this joyous occasion, T-Mobile announced a “major network upgrade plan,” one which will turn most of its 2G/EDGE service areas into an oasis of LTE coverage.  (more…)

“All New HTC One” for Verizon Sold on eBay for Just $500, Packaging Outs Specs

What’s that, you thought the “All New HTC One” leak situation couldn’t get any worse (for HTC) or more ridiculous? Silly, you should know better. Today, it got substantially more entertaining, if anything, as an apparent Verizon model was listed and sold on eBay for $499. We aren’t sure if the seller didn’t realize what they had or if they were trying to play it extra sneaky. But for full retail on an unreleased flagship phone that we can’t stop talking about, $500 seems like the steal of the century. The phone will more than likely be listed at $600 when it’s released.

If that wasn’t enough, the packaging has been outed as well, along with a spec list that had avoided us until now. (more…)
