You will also get a piece of calling minutes that are worth a total of $27.5 million. In total, Verizon will be paying $64.2 million in damages, with an...

The changelog isn’t as fascinating as a full blown Android update, but it brings forth a couple of nifty additions nevertheless. First and foremost, the update will finally allow users to make WiFi calls to international contacts,...

A few days ago we told you about Verizon’s intentions to carry the developer edition Galaxy Note 4. And the smartphone has gone official today with a price tag of $699.99.

The US Federal Trade Commission (the FTC) has filed a lawsuit against AT&T saying they have mislead millions of customers with promises of unlimited data. They believe that AT&T has throttled some users’ speeds to be 90% slower than normal.

FTC commissioner Edith Ramirez says that “AT&T promised its customers ‘unlimited’ data, and in many instances,...
