All signs are pointing to T-Mobile USA again being left out in the cold when the sixth-generation iPhone is presumably revealed next week, but that doesn't mean the carrier won't have a strategy in place to combat the problem.
You wouldn’t think so much drama and hand-wringing goes into the creation of something as simple as a SIM card, but where international standards are concerned, compromises must be made. Research in Motion and Motorola have done just that with Apple’s proposed nano-SIM design, which appears to have the majority of votes already.
A new report claims that Apple has adjusted its proposed nano-SIM standard to address complaints by Nokia, with a final vote expected soon -- even though the technology itself isn’t expected before 2013.
Another week goes flying by! Friday is here again, and with it comes the usual wave of rumors, product updates and fee increases by AT&T. Oh, missed that last one? Well, be sure to read all the way through today’s news recap, because your next handset is going to cost you more, thanks to the upgrade fee charged by the carrier effectively being doubled, beginning this Sunday. But hey, why close out the week on such a downer note? There’s better news ahead in the rest of our recap for Friday, February 20, 2012.

Following on the heels of a weekend rumor, Apple’s U.S. online store opened its virtual doors this morning with a new entry to its lineup -- the same old iPhone 4 you already know and love, available in black or white, 16GB or 32GB, but with one very different change.
Apple told us all the iPad was unlocked. We all heard it. But how do you get Micro-SIM into your shiny new iPad 3G when only AT&T offers them? Turns out all you need is some scissors and a steady hand.
