Say what you want about T-Mobile's "Uncarrier" initiative, but it's starting to produce a ripple effect cross the entire wireless industry -- with the latest benefitting AT&T customers looking to free themselves from contracts.
Where did you buy your last cell phone? If you answered Apple or Best Buy, you're certainly not alone, as a new survey revealed the two retail giants increasingly make up a big percentage of carrier sales.
Apple continues to sit on the sidelines of the mobile wallet initiative, but that isn't stopping the carriers from banding together in an effort to knock aside any momentum Google Wallet may have picked up thus far.
It’s a week of the new and the old all together in one fine batch of stories. Got a hobbyist enthusiasm for early code? Have we got some news for you. Wanna speculate on what comes next? Do we ever! And do you want to know what’s in your wallet? The answer may surprise you. That and a whole heaping helping more where that came from. Just mosey on up.
It wasn't so long ago that the very idea of AT&T unlocking a customer's iPhone was unheard of, but over the last couple of years, things have improved dramatically -- that is, until recently, and no one is quite sure why.
Judging from Amazon's press release on Monday, the e-tailer is ramping up its plans to mimic Netflix when it comes to streaming original content. Needless to say, the endgame is to bolster its subscriber base for Amazon Prime, which already offers thousands of movies and TV shows as well as its original benefit, two-day shipping. Will it succeed? The answer to that question may be more apparent later this month. Read on to find out why!
It seems like there's something going on or about to happen, but we can't quite put our finger on it. Like something that didn't get mentioned. Like an event-wide "one more thing." Hmmmm, well, maybe you can spot it in this week's hottest news.
Using a Wi-Fi only iPad works well enough when you have an available connection, but sometimes emergencies strike and you find yourself wishing you had an LTE-enabled device. (Well, I do, anyway.) According to AllThingsD, AT&T's seeking to make those moments easier for us. It looks as though you'll still have to buy a cellular-enabled tablet, but AT&T seeks to ease some of the prohibitive costs involved by introducing a 250 MB data plan for $5.00 a day when you need it.
The world of wireless devices is changing rapidly, and carriers have to move quickly with it or face extinction. But rather than making big, bold moves like scrappy T-Mobile, AT&T is phasing out traditional plans and forcing new customers onto Mobile Share.
There's no guarantee that another Apple event is on the way for next Tuesday, but assuming there is, journalists should start receiving invitations sometime today. What's on deck? Only those in Cupertino know for sure, but with OS X Mavericks now gold master, a release is surely imminent, and isn't it about time for that new Mac Pro as well? And don't be surprised if a new iPad (or two) shows up as well… You know, assuming there's actually anything planned for Oct. 15 in the first place….
