Over the course of the last 6 months, carriers in the US have begun doing unlimited data plans to compete for customers who use a lot of data. Following examples by Sprint and T-Mobile, US Cellular now has their own unlimited 4G LTE plan with an option to add tethering.
Although we’ve been far from impressed with Samsung’s recently released Galaxy S3 Mini, it seems that for some reason Sammy still has faith in the 4-inch mid-ranger. And not just in Europe, but also in the States, where a slightly tweaked version of the phone, dubbed Galaxy Axiom, should see the light of day soon.
Motorola introduced its bootloader unlocking program a few months ago, one that’s designed to let power users tinker with their devices more easily. While the majority of the supported handsets are those that come with the “Developer Edition” label, sold at an unsubsidized price, Moto has added the soon-to-be-released Electrify M to the club.
Sprint has purchased spectrum and customers from US Cellular. The purchase price is $480 million and will include parts of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio including the Chicago and St. Louis.
US Cellular customers now have another option in terms of 4G LTE smartphones. The latest device is the Motorola ELECTRIFY M, which will be available on November 8. The pricing will vary depending on whether you live (or do not live) in a 4G LTE covered location.
There’s a new budget-friendly mid-ranger from Motorola heading to US Cellular. Codenamed “Solstice”, the handheld has just cleared the FCC with model number XT901, being most likely scheduled for a December launch (this year’s winter solstice occurs on December 21).
US Cellular has recently released another budget-friendly Android smartphone. The device is the Huawei Ascend Y and at the moment, it can be purchased on-contract for one penny, or off-contract for just $99.99.
So it’s finally here – the sequel to the smartphone that has launched a thousand “size” jokes and debates on what to call it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Especially for you, we’ve compiled everything we know so far of the Galaxy Note 2’s availability on several U.S. and Canadian carriers. Happy hunting!
