    Want to make a call or send a text but can't because your normal AT&T; phone keeps dropping calls? *Soon* you'll be able to look no further than the Genus. A love child created between new found partners TeraStar and AT&T; are aimed at bringing expanded coverage to remote areas via satellite. The handset will allow users to "seamlessly" switch between satellite and cellular networks without hiccup. While the Genus is being marketed towards more government and utility companies, AT&T; and TeraSt...
  • iPhone users love their phone, HATE the network. *Shocker*

    I've complained about AT&T;'s performance enough for several people. And apparently my feelings of ill will and malice aren't alone as a recent study conducted by CFI Group which polled over 1,000 AT&T; iPhone users on their device and network. The first test point centered around the users perception of owning their ideal phone. No surprise here. The iPhone scored a 92% rate here -- top of the class. Trailing further behind, Android and Pre users rang in at 77%, BlackBerry (73%), Treo (70%...

    Lovers of the speedy wireless spectrum that belongs to T-Mobile U.S.A. have some new breathing room and grasslands to stretch their legs on. Specifically, T-Mobile customers in Columbia, Durham, Greensboro, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem, N.C. as well as Greenville, S.C., and Escondido and Oceanside, CA should be noticing greatly improved browsing speeds as well as a nifty "3G"/"H"/"U" symbol on their phone's display signifying the up tick in speeds. Even though they're a bit late to the game, it ...
  • iPhone MMS update: West Coast - late morning. East Coast — early afternoon.

    While many of you who truly wanted and already activated MMS on your iPhones can disregard this message, for the vast numbers who haven't, AT&T; has gone ahead and shed light on the exact time at which you can download the carrier update file through iTunes to enable said feature. It looks like the party-like-it's-2002 halapalooza is going down "late morning" for you west coasters meaning east coasters will be well into their "early afternoon" time frame. iPhone 3G/3GS users will soon be able t...
  • 662,258 text messages in one month? Get real.

    You may have stumbled across an article last week by TUAW that highlighted an iPhone 3GS user's ("Lgvoyagerguy") massive 13,000 page AT&T; phone bill. The reason for the Amazon execution was the seemingly impossible "record" of 662,258 text messages being sent...in ONE month. We all know how AT&T; loves to save paper. However, looking at the numbers in greater detail, that 662,258 text messages in one month breaks down to roughly 22,075 per day which breaks down to ~15-16 text messages per mi...
  • Full-Qwerty + Touchscreen (multi-touch) BlackBerry coming soon? Really Soon?
    by Mike
    Posted September 21st, 2009 at 5:13 am
    If there is anything more clamored for, more sought after, or most lusted after in the BlackBerry world, a full qwerty + touchscreen model is no doubt near the top of the list. Why with the best of both worlds, your work day will just be that much more efficient right? While there has been much speculation the last several months over a still unseen and undocumented BlackBerry "Magnum", which is to bring the hallowed touch + qwerty combo, today's leaking of information could signal a change ...
  • Change needed: Custom carrier OS’s delay access to critical updates!
    by Mike
    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 12:03 pm
    Owners of T-Mobile's G2 Touch across the pond are no doubt all too familiar with the latest shinning example of how carriers can really botch a handsets reputation. What do I mean? The G2 Touch received a recent firmware update from HTC to fix a number of stability, speed, and other various issues that plagued the handset since launch. Even though T-Mobile's G2 Touch and the more commonly named "Hero" are the same phone, it is only those who own the un-TMO-fied Hero that are able to take a...

    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 8:02 am
    CDMA users often feel left out when it comes to cool phones and such as their GSM brethren are often first to get all the coolest geeky stuff. This fall Verizon is looking to spruce up their offerings a tad with two promising contestants both coming from HTC land. The first up, the HTC Imagio will bring Big Red their first tasting of WinMo 6.5 come early October packing a 3.6-inch WVGA touchscree, 528MHz Qualcom core, 512MB/256 ROM/RAM, 5 megapixel shooter w/ auto-focus and anti-shake features...
  • LTE coming to Metro PCS late 2010…others to follow later.
    by Mike
    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 8:20 am
    If you have a need for speed and are already growing tired of constant wait times when loading pages over the ever increasingly saturated 3G arena, Metro PCS has some news that will wet your whistle and give you a second wind to ride out the waiting game that awaits you. Come late 2010, one to several quarters behind any other U.S. cellular provider, Metro PCS is planning to launch their first LTE capable handset on their new LTE network. The dual mode CDMA/LTE handset will reportedly be from ...
  • Deutsche Telekom to create global super giant…Cellular monopolies on the rise?
    by Mike
    Posted September 14th, 2009 at 8:35 am
    I'm sure many of you can remember back to the good 'ol days of the AT&T;/Bell monopoly. They got big, then broken down, repeat, repeat. Here we are in 2009 and AT&T; is growing ever larger (again) and another large acquisition is coming to light. The latest reports have Deutsche Telekom eying a potential purchase of Sprint. First off, the GSM/CDMA compatibility is a big hurdle. Now you have two completely different technologies to watch after. Second, the merger would create a giant #2 U.S...
  • Motorola Android event wrap up — Moto Cliq coming to T-Mo USA
    by Mike
    Posted September 10th, 2009 at 1:30 pm
    The much anticipated Moto Cliq with Blur and it's U.S. Carrier friend, T-Mobile have one might cool device on their hands. While a more "professional" device still has me holding out on Android, the robust messaging and social networking integration is pretty tempting. Enough daydreaming, the Motorola Cliq will come to T-Mobile "before the holidays" with: 3.1" 320 x 480 pixel display Android 1.5 WCDMA 900/1700/2100, GSM 850/900/1800/1900, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps (Category 7/8), EDGE, GPRS Class 12...
