Enable WiFi/USB/Bluetooth network tethering on your HTC EVO 4G LTE

by: Bams SadewoJune 22, 2012

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 [...]

First Sprint Galaxy S3 TV ad airs, claims “the next big thing is here”

by: Chris SmithJune 20, 2012

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 [...]

Leak: a white HTC EVO 4G LTE might be coming soon

by: Bams SadewoJune 20, 2012

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.

Delays and staggered releases for the Sprint and T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3

by: AdrianJune 20, 2012

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 [...]

Google Wallet stops working on the Sprint HTC Evo LTE

by: Mike AndriciJune 19, 2012

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 4G LTE network tested ahead of launch, not perfect but found promising

by: Chris SmithJune 19, 2012

 

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 [...]

Motorola slider bound for Sprint leaked, could it be the Photon Q 4G LTE?

by: AdrianJune 18, 2012

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 [...]

More Americans decide to go prepaid. Are you one of them?

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 16, 2012

ExtremeTech

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 [...]

Quad-core S4 LG Eclipse coming to AT&T and Sprint, may hit stores on October 31

by: Bams SadewoJune 15, 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S3 hysteria is reaching a fever pitch right now, but give it a couple of months and phone geeks will be itching for next big thing to get their paws on. We’ve covered why LG Eclipse is the perfect candidate for that, as it definitely has the specs it needs to stand up against the big boys in the smartphone market. Now, there’s another good reason to start saving your money.

UnwiredView has spotted a filling on Bluetooth SIG, which indicates that both the AT&T (LG E970) and Sprint (LG LS970) versions of the LG Eclipse have been approved for sale. The more interesting part, however, is the phone’s expected arrival in the US.

According to the [...]

Rumor: Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G Touch price to drop to $99.99 on June 21

by: AdrianJune 14, 2012

The Galaxy S3 US launch is finally (almost) upon us. For Android fans in the US, that’s great news, not only because they’ll get to play with one of the best smartphones ever, but also because some older devices will become more accessible than ever.

We’ve suspected for a while that the Samsung’s Galaxy S2, still a more than decent phone, will see discounts in the coming weeks, and now we have a confirmation of sorts from TechnoBuffalo.com. According to a “trusted source” inside Sprint, the Now Network will be dropping the price of the Epic 4G Touch to a winning $99.99 on a two-year contract on June 21, which just happens to be the release date of the [...]
