Earlier today, T-Mobile announced a very attractive unlimited data offer to customers switching over from either of the top 3 networks. And now, merely hours later, Sprint has announced a new fully unlimited plan which is a good $20 cheaper than what T-Mobile has to offer. According to this new plan, new Sprint customers can get unlimited data at a monthly cost of $60 while T-Mobile charges $80 for the same privilege. As Sprint mentions in its comparison chart, the likes of AT&T and Verizon don’t have an unlimited option,...

Only a few days after Sprint announced its revised family plans, T-Mobile has launched something of its own in a bid to take down the competition. The carrier is offering free LTE data for over an year to customers who switch over to T-Mobile from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. Existing customers will have to add a lifeline to their account and both customers will get these data benefits. For those who are already on the unlimited data plans, the carrier will offer a credit of $10 on the monthly bill for an year. You can find the complete...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 might be well over a year old, but it’s still a very capable handset and still under the company’s update cycle. A new deal over at eBay is now offering the smartphone for just $359.95, a sizable discount on the standard asking price of $499.99. The seller is also offering free shipping, which is a bonus for an already fantastic deal. It is important to note that this here is a brand new unit of the smartphone and not a refurbished model, so it’s coming straight from the carrier. So if you haven’t...

Verizon was rumored to be launching a rival to the Google Play Store in order to offer a decent alternative for apps on Android devices. And just as we hear about those plans fizzling out, a new report coming from The Information suggests that the carrier is secretly building a coalition with other major carriers of the U.S. to bring this idea to fruition. Obviously, the carrier can have a bigger impact by getting other carriers on board, rather than developing this app hub on its own. It’s an early report so we don’t have...

Verizon’s variant of the HTC One Max smartphone is now getting Sense 6.0, much longer after the unlocked variants got the update. This UI was first introduced with the One M8 back in March and has been included in almost every HTC device that has launched since then, including a handful of midrange smartphones. So there was no hardware limitation restricting the One Max phablet from getting the update. The Android version won’t be changed however, but users will be welcomed to a complete visual overhaul nonetheless. Apart...

As expected, Sprint has finally made its new family plan official which gives users 20GB of data to spend every month for $100. Families can add up to 10 lines to eat off their data bucket, so this is ideal if you live in a large social circle. This revised plan will be available starting August 22 and will last until the end of 2015. For a limited period, Sprint is also offering an extra 2GB per line in addition to the 20GB of shared data, so there’s plenty to be excited about if you’re a Sprint user. The only caveat here...

It looks like owners of the HTC One M8 on Verizon are in for an extended wait for the Android 4.4.3 update. HTC’s US president, Jason Mackenzie, has revealed on Twitter that the update has been pushed back to mid-September in order to give the software team time to fix a GPS issue. Oddly, a GPS issue was fixed on T-Mobile’s M8 and pushed out along with the 4.4.3 update yesterday, so we’re guessing the bug was found later on the Verizon variant. Android 4.4.3 will bring mostly security and bug fixes, along with improvements...

Yesterday, we spoke about the possibility of the Sharp Aquos Crystal launching through Sprint. The carrier has officially confirmed this today by announcing the device for $239.99 off contract. The carrier will also offer the smartphone for $10 per month for a period of 2-years under its zero down payment plans. Sprint’s subsidiaries such as Boost and Virgin Mobile will also carry the smartphone eventually but for $149.99. Going by the pricing, it’s clear that the device is a midrange offering in terms of specs, although...
