The nation's second-place wireless carrier proves that it can still shock and awe by introducing new contact-free family plans that are actually cheaper than rivals while offering more data in some cases.
So how about that YouTube app? With Apple confirming that YouTube isn't being invited to the iOS 6 party, it certainly appears Cupertino is working hard to ditch as much of Google as humanly possible from its mobile OS. Thankfully, iOS 5 seems as if it will be safe, so if you've got an older device or no plans to upgrade right away, you can keep 'Tubin' the same way you have been. Meanwhile, here's what else is making headlines for this Monday, August 6, 2012.
It's not much of a surprise, especially now that rival Verizon Wireless has already introduced their own service, but AT&T has finally made good on its promise to introduce shared data plans -- and won't be forcing current customers to use them if they don't want to.

Another weekend is here, and it’s sure starting to feel like summer. After delaying a new iPhone until October of last year, Apple is surprising us again by shifting its annual iTunes Festival music event in the U.K. from July to September, but don’t worry: There should be plenty of summer fun coming from Cupertino, most likely in the form of OS X Mountain Lion and new Macs. In the meantime, keep up with all of the day’s highlights for this Friday, May 18, 2012.
Still rocking grandfathered unlimited data through Verizon Wireless? Better enjoy it while it lasts, because the carrier plans to drive a stake through its heart when Big Red makes the switch to family data plans this summer. Should make good fodder for Sprint’s future marketing, since they continue to be the only U.S. carrier offering truly unlimited data plans. Meanwhile, here’s the rest of what’s making news for this Wednesday, May 16, 2012.
As more publishers begin to trickle in to allowing for subscriptions to their publications on Apple's iPad, a new report from Forbes sheds light in that it wasn't so much a concern about profit that caused the delay. It was about whether or not customers would be willing to share data.
