If you have been rather disappointed about not receiving a certain Samsung phone on time in the mail, perhaps you’d like to know about one recommended alternative that you can actually purchase right now, at a discounted price and with 24 hours shipping. We’re talking about Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE, the phone with the kickstand and huge 4.7-inch display.
It’s a well-known fact that purchasing your phone from a third-party will often be cheaper than getting it straight from the carrier. Amazon Wireless is currently offering the HTC EVO 4G LTE for only $129.99. The price, however, is only good for new subscribers of the carrier. The price for folks who are upgrading is [...]
Sprint’s recently launched HTC EVO 4G LTE appears to have a Google Wallet problem, and, while some people may have pointed the finger at the carrier for the mobile payment woes, it would appear that it’s a software glitch that’s causing all the commotion.
Google has confirmed to The Verge that the various errors with Google Wallet, including a notification that says the service is not certified “in your country or on your device / carrier” are caused by a software issue with the phone’s NFC chip.
The company is working with HTC and Sprint to solve the problem, and a software update is going to be rolled out at some point in the [...]
Black or white model – the latter possibly out soon – owners of HTC EVO 4G LTE won’t be able to use WiFi tethering on their device without having to resort to some creative solution, preferably one that doesn’t require paying an additional monthly fee to Sprint. Last we checked, the mobile hotspot plan costs $20 a month for 2GB and $50 for 6GB of data.
The same goes when trying to use some good old USB or Bluetooth network tethering, which is normally impossible due to carrier’s restriction. Fortunately, the task is but a simple one for the tinkerers at themikmik.com, who devised a method later shared on XDA-developers.
For those who are rather skilled, you can [...]
Samsung posted on its YouTube channel its first TV commercial for the Galaxy S3. The short 15-second clip, entitled “The Next Big Thing Is Here,” shows one of the features of the handset in action, Pop Up Play, or watching a video while performing another task on the large 4.8-inch touchscreen display – in this case texting. This sort of TV-like picture-in-picture feature will also work when browsing the web, writing emails and performing other tasks.
While this particular ad ends with Sprint’s logo, and a reminder that Sprint is the only carrier of the Big Four to still allow users to sign up for new unlimited data plans, the Galaxy S3 will [...]
Just as your black HTC EVO 4G LTE is settling down nicely in its new home after a prolonged pit stop at the Customs, there are now reports that a white EVO 4G LTE might be around.
A source has confirmed to Techno Buffalo that a white version of HTC EVO 4G LTE is in the works and will be introduced by Sprint and HTC. The proof is in the warehouse inventory pudding. As you can see on the screenshot below, the HTC X325C listing is none other than the white HTC EVO 4G LTE. While a specific launch date for the white version of the HTC EVO 4G LTE wasn’t mentioned, we’re sure we’ll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
Those who have made their purchase of the [...]
If you thought Samsung’s marketing campaign ahead of the Galaxy S3 launch was crazy, wait until you hear about the complete madness surrounding the US release of the new Sammy flagship device!
Sprint and T-Mobile, two of the American carriers expected to have the S3 up for sale on June 21, are experiencing issues with “overwhelming demand and limited supply”. In other words, many of you might have to wait a few extra days to get your grubby hands on what has been called the greatest Android phone ever.Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 release delays
Sprint has been the first of the two carriers to come forward with the supply issues, and, while some of you may be [...]
Although Google Wallet is one the services that the search engine giant is aggressively trying to push to more and more users (you can read more about using your smartphone as a paying method in this previous article), it sure looks like there are a lot of obstacles that Google will have to overcome before we can talk about Wallet as a full-fledged paying solution.
With that in mind, I’m here to report about a recent problem that has been reported by owners of the newly launched Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE when trying to access Google’s Wallet app. If up until a few days ago the app would freeze with a confusing “adding prepaid card” dialogue before prompting the user to try [...]
Sprint, the nation’s third largest mobile operator will also be the third carrier of the Big Four to roll out its 4G LTE network in the country, with the company expected to turn on its high-speed data network in six U.S. cities including Atlanta, Baltimor, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio by the end of the year.
In case you’re wondering, Sprint already has a variety of LTE-ready smartphones, and just as expected they’re all Android devices. However, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the LG Viper 4G and the HTV EVO 4G can only take advantage of Sprint’s 3G network, which is rather slow when compared to the competition. And lets not [...]
We’ve been telling you for a long time how much we’d love to see a smartphone with a full-sized slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a dual-core S4 or quad-core proc, and Android 4.0 ICS, but, much to our desperation, nobody seems to be listening to our desires.
Or nobody seemed to be listening, because we’ve just picked up a leak on a mysterious Motorola handheld that could well fit the bill. The phone, if real, will be surely hitting Sprint soon enough, but other than that and the fact that it will come with a 5-row QWERTY keyboard, we can’t say nothing for sure right now.
However, if we put two and two together and look towards recent rumors surrounding future Motorola [...]
Something historic happened in the first quarter of 2012. For the first time ever, the major carriers in the US have registered a combined decline in the number of postpaid (contract) subscribers. The total number of subscriptions of the seven biggest telcos in the United States has declined with 52,000.
Sure, that’s not a dramatic fall by any means, considering that AT&T, Verizon, and the other carriers have hundreds of millions of subscribers. But this first drop ever might be a sign that people are getting tired of paying hundreds of dollars every month, for a service that they can get for half or less, simply by sacrificing a little [...]
