    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?

    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

    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...
  • AT&T add “A-List” plans, back haul capacity, and more cities to 7.2 Mbps club

    AT&T; has quite a bit to offer us today in the way of news and wouldn't you know it, casts the bringer of angst in a more lovable light. Starting off, users who were envious of T-Mobile's "MyFaves or Verizon's adopted MyCircle plans, your time has come as AT&T; is jumping into the ring with their own "A-List" plans. The real bummer however is that in this economy, lets face it, there are a ton of people scraping by with the bottom of the barrel sub-$59.99 individual sub-$89.99 family plans -- ...
  • T-Mobile USA BlackBerry Onyx/Bold/9700 gets official picture
    by Mike
    Posted September 8th, 2009 at 9:13 pm
    Even though we in nerd land all know that a T-Mobile branded BlackBerry 9700/Bold/Onyx exists and is coming to the US, GSM based carrier, unofficial official confirmation is always a nice thing to have before laying your pretty little heads down for a restful slumber. The unofficial confirmation comes by way of Al Sacco of CIO and a not so secret little email from TMO USA PR which stated: The BlackBerry ‘Onyx’ sports a premium experience and design with a high-gloss black finish and le...
  • Would AT&T be more diverse, more reliable, and less crap without the iPhone?
    by Mike
    Posted September 3rd, 2009 at 12:05 pm
    On my journey through my ever bloated RSS reader, I stumbled upon a post on Gearlog that really made me stop and think. I sit here day in and day out reading story after story with some tie to either Apple, the iPhone, or AT&T.; More often than not, poor network performance is the center headline drawing me in. The fact that Apple's Jesus phone is causing AT&T; to stutter is an understatement. Heck, even major news publications such as the New York Times are starting to notice. One thing I ...
  • As we welcome fall, we do so without iPhone MMS/Tethering
    by Mike
    Posted September 3rd, 2009 at 8:22 am
    So much for late summer eh AT&T;? I'm so beyond fed up with the entire company as a whole. Their god awful network is no surprise to many, nor is there any chance in hell they are going to garner any hope or praise from me...let alone a contract extension. Staring at dropping temperatures and shorter days, I figured it would be fitting to highlight that as we enter the fall season, iPhone owners nation wide here in the US are still without the most requested features: MMS and Tethering. The...
  • This Thanksgiving, have a turkey and a BlackBerry 9700

    Posted September 2nd, 2009 at 5:29 am
    The wait for a 3G BlackBerry on T-Mobile USA has been a long, long, long road. Watching carrier after carrier steal all of the good speedy devices can certainly become discrouraging after many cold shoulders. However, TMO USA users caught a second wind when it was announced that an upcoming version of the Onyx, the BlackBerry 9700 would be coming to T-Mobile -- with 3G no less! Building upon those previous known tidbits, a claimed reliable source to TMO news is reporting that the TMO 3G tot...

  • Motorola: “AT&T nixed our Android devices”.
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 9:36 am
    Motorola was gearing up for a game changing holiday season fueled by new Android devices on all four major wireless carriers: AT&T;, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Sprint is rumored to be getting the HTC Hero any week now and T-Mobile already has two Android devices with a couple more on the way before years end. Verizon not to be left out is also set to have a pretty awesome Android handset that so far has gone by the name Shules. That leaves AT&T; the loner thus far as they don't currently se...
  • OS 5.0 leaked for Bold, Tour, and 8900
    by Mike
    Posted August 26th, 2009 at 6:41 am
    While Bold users may still be recouping from the excitement the latest AT&T; update brought them, the more daredevilish users may be over and done with that already as they've likely had that firmware version for weeks now. While AT&T; is still messing around with oh so old 4.6 Bold firmware, the real action is in the 5.0 scene. Some brave developer or insider with special access to pre-release BlackBerry OS builds was kind enough to open the door and let loose versions of the 5.0 software for...
  • BlackBerry Bold getting firmware update. Visual Voicemail, 2G/3G mode toggle ensue.
    by Mike
    Posted August 25th, 2009 at 1:35 pm
    BlackBerry Bold users rejoice, this afternoon will bring good fortune to you and your beloved piece of Canadian born hardware. RIM announced earlier that an update to the BlackBerry Bold firmware will bring two pretty big updates with it along with the usual performance fixes and other general bug fixes. But we don't care about those mundane bug fixes. Nooo sir (or mam). We care about the numero uno updates such as Visual Voicemail and 2G/3G mode selection... (more...)...
