That’s right folks, the first HTC phone to feature Beats Audio natively in the US has now dropped it’s price by $100. With CES taking place this week, and a ton of new phones and tablets being announced, could it be possible that Verizon is launching a new flagship 4G LTE phone this week? Guess we will have to wait and see.
In my opinion the $299 price tag plus the 2-year contract on Verizon without unlimited data was really not a good deal. The $199 price tag is a little bit easier to swallow. But why get the Rezound when you can get a Nexus with Android 4.0 right?
Also need to point out that HTC has added the Rezound to the list of the phones that [...]
Yet another Android phone launching on Verizon, no surprise there right? Well let’s take a quick look at the new offering by LG and Verizon. The LG Spectrum is of course running Android – pretty sure its Gingberbread no confirmation on that yet – has a 1.3MP front-facing camera with a 8MP camera on the back. The Spectrum runs on a 1.5GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor and a 16GB SD Card pre-installed. Also features a 4.5″ True HD Display with Corning Gorilla Glass – which will be shown off at CES next week – and it has 329PPI (pixels per inch) to give a sharper image then the [...]
Alright so we all know the Droid 4 is on it’s way, but it is taking it’s sweet time getting to Verizon stores and becoming available for us all to buy. So with the Droid 4’s soon release, it would make sense that Big Red would want to kill of the Droid 3 and talk it’s customers that want a physical keyboard into buying the Droid 4, which features Verizon’s fast 4G LTE network. According to a report from The Verge today, it looks like the 6-month old Droid 3 is being put on the End-Of-Life (EOL) list very soon with a few other Verizon phones. Along with the Droid 3 we will be saying good bye to the LG Revolution, Blackberry Curve 3G, and Palm Pre [...]
Here is somewhat shocking news to come from Verizon today, recently we reported to you about the new $2 convenience fee Verizon was going to start charging their customers for paying their bill online or by phone, they have now decided to cancel that altogether.I’m sure that makes a lot of you Verizon customers very happy. Here is the full statement from Verizon below:
Verizon Wireless Will Not Institute Single Payment Fee
December 30, 2011
Verizon Wireless has decided it will not institute the fee for online or telephone single payments that was announced earlier this week.
The company made the decision in response to customer feedback about [...]
More bad news for Verizon and it’s customers, folks. Something else over at Verizon is down. The service for new customers and existing customers who just got a new phone and use it to activate their new phone seems to be down. This thread at their support forums is really filling up with complaints about it.
Yesterday we told you about the nationwide LTE outage Verizon was having, which was fixed overnight last night. But, when the Activation service went down after LTE came back up seems a bit strange.
Hopefully, Verizon can get this fixed rather quickly so that those running out to buy a new Galaxy Nexus or Droid RAZR can activate and play with their [...]
Indeed, it has been a great holiday season for many of us. New phones such as the Galaxy Nexus and Droid Razr have been wrapped in gift boxes, as well as new accessories. So many new things are changing.
Starting January 15, even more new lifestyles will be set. However, it is not the “nice” kind of change we are accustomed to. Verizon, once again, will be squeezing out more money from consumers who decide to pay over the phone or through online payment
Now, isn’t this a little ridiculous? Big Red claims that it will help the company “support the payment methods.” Well, obviously it isn’t support towards the customers of Verizon, and what happened to [...]
After spending the whole day running constant LTE speed tests, today is a bit different. In places that normally have 4G coverage by Verizon, we are lucky to be getting any data connection at all on our Galaxy Nexus. 3G is working fine for the most part in Silicon Valley around the Googleplex, but the same cannot be said in other parts of the country.
This is not the first time Verizon admitted to having data troubles. In fact, exactly a week ago today, Verizon’s 4G LTE network was having the same troubles like the ones today. But rest assured, Verizon is working hard to fix the problem, and you should start seeing your fourth “gee” again [...]
Many other Android websites including Droid-Life and Phandroid have reported that for the third time this month, Verizon is having a network outage. According to Twitter, the outage seems to be pretty sporadic with some in NYC having no issues while others are. Phoenix, Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Portland are also being reported as down.
While writing this, it looks like 3G has come back alive in most areas, but if you toggle to LTE to check if you have 4G again you may lose all connectivity. As always, Android Authority will keep you updated on this as we learn more. Verizon has not yet posted anything on Twitter, but we expect once this [...]
After a few years of development, tons of commercials, and a lot of patient waiting, 4G LTE is finally here, for Verizon customers at least. And although not everyone is seeing the “up to 10x faster speeds”, I assure you LTE has landed.
During my trip to New York City over the weekend, I was sure that my Galaxy Nexus would be picking up LTE speeds. Using Ookla’s Speedtest.net application, I tested my data download and upload speeds numerous times. The results varied depending on my location, but no matter where I was, it was easy to see difference between 3G and 4G. More specifically, once you hit a 4G zone, your almost guaranteed speeds over 3 mb/s. [...]
It has been just under 6 months since Motorola released the Droid 3, and it has become clear that the fourth device in the Droid series is on its way. Of course, yesterday, December 22nd, was the rumored date of release. However, the day has come and gone without any definitive word from Verizon or Motorola.
Despite the lack of info from big red, a piece of informations, shown above, has escaped from Verizon’s headquarters. It is pretty clear that the Droid 4 will be landing in Verizon on or around February 2nd, 2012. This quick change of release dates should not come as a shock after the agony Verizon put Galaxy Nexus fans through. However, at least [...]
