The two biggest carriers in the U.S., Verizon and AT&T, will soon expand their LTE coverage in a number of markets across the country, as demand for high speed mobile internet increases.
AT&T’s LTE network just became available for customers in Buffalo (NY), Burlington (VT), Cleveland (OH) Corpus Christi (TX), Gainesville (GA), Greensboro-Winston Salem (N.C.) and Wichita (KS).
It is worth noting that AT&T’s Cleveland expansion will cover the cities of Brecksville, Brunswick, Elyria, Hinckley, Hudson, Mentor, Solon, Strongsville, Twinsburg, and Wadsworth. The North Carolina expansion includes Gastonia, Lake Norman, N.C. [...]
Being the last major carrier in the U.S. to release the Samsung Galaxy S3, Verizon is drawing some flak from customers for its decision to ship the phone with an encrypted bootloader. The locked bootloader is a potential problem that owners of Galaxy S3 on the other three major carriers in the country don’t have to face. While it doesn’t necessarily close the flashing custom ROMs door for Verizon customers, it certainly makes it harder.
With Big Red hasn’t exactly been a big help, it’s up to Samsung to set things right — or at least give a helping hand to the tweakers and tinkerers at xda-developers and any other places. Samsung has a [...]
If you were hoping to casually visit Verizon stores on July 10 to get what the rest of the cool tech geeks are using, prepare to be disappointed and come home empty handed. It seems Big Red has delayed the launch of the phone by two days, with July 12 now set as the new date for its availability. The delay is not the end of the world, but for some folks, it might be a good enough reason to do some carrier hopping and get their Samsung Galaxy S3 fix elsewhere.
The good news is the delay doesn’t seem to affect those who maintain an attitude of expecting for the worst (delayed release) from Verizon by pre-ordering the Galaxy S3 since way back when. As we’ve reported a [...]
Verizon initially got a lot of fire after announcing a Samsung Galaxy S3 release date weeks after AT&T and Sprint. With the “unprecedented demand and limited supply” problems, things are on a more even field, with AT&T only just releasing the device. Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 is all set to release on July 12, and we’ve received word that some lucky Verizon customers have already got their hands on a pre-ordered device.
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 in the hands of some developers means that hacks and rooting methods are already being worked on. Granted, it hasn’t been the easiest, with Verizon locking the bootloader of the [...]
The fresh from the phone factory HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, available now on Verizon for $149.99, is quite a bargain for those who don’t want to plunk down too much of their life savings for a new phone. But at $39.99, the phone is a friggin’ steal! That’s how much retailer Let’s Talk is selling the Droid Incredible 4G LTE for on its website.
Considering the specs and the fact that Verizon is charging $100 more for the Droid Incredible 4G LTE, it’s certainly a deal worth clicking your mouse on – or at least hovering above the “Buy” button until you read the fine prints.
The promo price for the Droid Incredible 4G LTE is good for new customers and existing [...]
If there’s a good phone out there that doesn’t have too many flaws, and it arrives in the US, you can usually count on Verizon to ruin it.
It happened with the One series from HTC, which they made unrecognizable by turning it into the less pretty and underpowered Droid Incredible 4G LTE, which also comes a name to match its looks. The same thing is now happening with the Samsung Galaxy S3, which Verizon decided to release with a locked bootloader.
Verizon is known for consistently locking bootloaders on Motorola and HTC phones, but until recently, we weren’t sure if it’s the manufacturers or the carriers who are to blame for the policy. [...]
After a frustratingly long waiting period and what often seemed like endless speculations, bogus rumors, and false leaks, Verizon’s HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is finally here. Right on schedule (well, the most recent schedule at least), the new flagship phone has started selling both on Verizon’s official website and in Big Red retail stores across the US.
The Incredible 4G LTE follows on the footsteps of the 2010 Incredible and 2011 Incredible 2, and is, as its name proudly states, the first in the series to come with 4G LTE connectivity. Although it’s a significant update over the first two Incredible editions, the new 4-incher doesn’t seem like a real winner to us. [...]
After the “unprecedented demand” and supply issues encountered by AT&T and Sprint, the first two US carriers to sell the Galaxy S3, few were optimistic about Verizon’s own launch of the super phone.
Big Red had already lost “points” in the eyes of its customers by announcing it will launch the S3 weeks after Sprint and AT&T. The user frustration grew even deeper when the initial launch was pushed back from July 9 to 10.
In an unusual and surprising turn of events, however, Verizon seems to have started the S3’s shipping process way ahead of schedule. Droid-Life and Phandroid have reported yesterday on rumors that pre-ordered phones will start reaching [...]
After several months of rumors and leaks of all sorts, but also an official unveiling that failed to mention any release dates, Verizon and HTC’s new Droid Incredible 4G LTE is finally ready to start selling. Big Red’s exclusive take on HTC’s One X flagship will be up for grabs on July 5, which is only 3 days away and is on-par with the latest speculations we reported on.
Verizon unveiled the on-contract pricing for the new Incredible earlier today and we have to admit we were wrong last time we talked about the new phone. The Droid Incredible 4G LTE will therefore start selling at just $149.99, and not at $199.99, the last rumored price of the 4-incher.
After way too many delays and broken promises, as well as a fistful of rumors and speculations that proved to be inaccurate, Motorola has just (barely) made it on providing the much awaited Android 4.0 ICS update for the Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx by the end of Q2.
Moto promised its customers to have the upgrade live “sometime in Q2” more than a month ago, and, with just a few hours before the official beginning of the year’s third quarter, RAZR and RAZR Maxx owners can now taste their first scoops of Ice Cream Sandwich.
The update’s rollout was announced on Twitter yesterday by Scott Charlston, one of Verizon’s PR representatives, and, based on feedback from [...]
