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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The Sprint Galaxy S3 is already available for pre-order and it will be launched in just over a week from now, on June 21. For that matter, in addition to Sprint, Samsung’s 2012 flagship device will hit five more U.S. carriers this summer including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and C Spire.
In case you’re particularly interested in purchasing the device from Sprint, then you’ll be happy to hear that no less than 15 Galaxy S3 training videos for Sprint employees have been leaked, each one demoing certain features of the handset.
The videos, posted by Inside Sprint Now, are very short (45 to 80 seconds) but they each show [...]
This month’s buyer’s guide brings something different to Android Authority.

Choosing a phone from Verizon for the June Buyer’s Guide was difficult. All Big Red’s top of the line phones date back from the end of 2011. That’s a stark contrast with the other carriers, who have new flagship phones on the shelf right now. Although the phones from late last year are no slouchers [...]
Samsung announced on Monday that its 2012 Android flagship smartphone will be available from five U.S. carriers this month, with prices starting at $199. Soon after that, we saw Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and U.S. Cellular announce their own Galaxy S3 versions alongside availability details for each carrier.
In case you’re interested in buying the Galaxy S3 in the US but you’re not sure what carrier to pick, then we got you covered, as we’ll tell you everything you need to know before making the purchase.What you get?
The Galaxy S3 offered by the five carriers is identical to the international version design-wise, which is [...]
The waiting might have been frustrating for some US tech fans, but you are now officially one step closer to getting the Samsung Galaxy S3. Sammy’s new flagship can now be pre-ordered from the nation’s three biggest carriers, as well as from Best Buy’s retail stores.
Sprint has been the first American carrier to accept S3 pre-orders and the good thing about the network’s offering is that you can get both the Pebble Blue and Marble White models in 16 and 32 GB versions. The 16 GB Galaxy S3 can be pre-ordered at this link and will cost you $199.99 with a two-year carrier agreement, while the 32 GB model is available at this link and goes for $249.99 with the same [...]
