Black Friday 2014 is almost upon us, and we were this close to send y’all out for your holiday Android shopping without consideration for carrier deals. Rookie mistake on our part, and we apologize for it, although in our defense, it was only in the last couple of days that the promotions started cascading from the likes of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. And let’s not forget Cricket Wireless, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, MetroPCS and Virgin Mobile. These smaller fighters in the service operator arena often try to compensate...

AT&T has surprised everyone by issuing a software update to the three year old Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. The smartphone which last saw the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update nearly two years ago, hasn’t seen any updates since. The update changelog only mentions “Android OS Enhancements“, leaving much to the imagination. But users will be glad to know that the smartphone isn’t forgotten, not by Samsung at least. The Android version remains unchanged at 4.1.2, so there’s not much to expect as far as the...

Customers can now walk into a Best Buy outlet to secure a unit of the Motorola Nexus 6 from Sprint. Although the AT&T model is expected to be available today as well, software issues might force Best Buy to send back units to the carrier or Motorola. But since the issue is only limited to AT&T’s variant, the Sprint model should be freely available should you walk over to a Best Buy outlet today. Stocks might differ depending on the region, so make sure you check with the local outlet beforehand. Some stores are reportedly...

AT&T only recently started selling the Nexus 6 to customers who pre-ordered the device and we’re hearing of a potential issue already. According to internal AT&T messages, the carrier is sending out existing stock of the Nexus 6 smartphone due to some software related issues. This software bug reportedly leads to trouble with gaining proper connection as well as a black screen issue while the device is turned out, thus forcing AT&T to return all units of the smartphone. Right on cue, the smartphone has gone out of...

Just as Sprint began rolling out the Android 4.4.4 update for the Galaxy S5 today, another Samsung device is seeing the update, but from AT&T. The carrier’s version of the Galaxy Note 3 is the latest Samsung device to get the update with some new features in tow. The update comes with some Samsung specific apps like Kids Mode, Knox 2.0 and Side Sync 3.0 with the usual range of bug fixes and patches. The update is a hefty 459MB in size, which can be accredited to the multitude of Samsung specific features and AT&T bloatware...

It wasn’t too long ago when it was discovered that the AT&T branded Nexus 6 would feature plenty of bloatware apps and a custom carrier logo on the back. Today we’re hearing that the device has some more carrier specific customization in tow with a new boot animation, different from the regular version of the Nexus 6. The new images accessed of the AT&T Nexus 6 also show the carrier’s logo on the back as we saw in a leak last week, so it seems like customers will have to make do with another inconvenience while...

  With past deals only being available to customers with higher tiered plans, AT&T is now launching a deal for customers who only have 10 GB of data. Starting tomorrow on November 18, AT&T will be launching a limited-time offer for Mobile Share customers to get 15 GB of data instead of the usual 10 GB. Because this is a Mobile Share plan, you’ll also get unlimited domestic minutes and messages, plus unlimited international texting from the US to over 120 countries. So if you’re on AT&T or thinking of...

The AT&T Nexus 6 is expected to break cover this week with a steep price tag. But just as customers prepare to get their hands on the smartphone, the carrier has revealed through one of its pages that the smartphone will carry a carrier logo at the bottom portion of the back cover. The point of Nexus devices is the fact that it comes clean without any modifications from the carriers. But since Google is partnering with all major carriers this time around, it’s clear that they’ve struck some sort of a deal to allow this. Oddly,...
