The AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is now getting an update which introduces the VoLTE feature on the device. The update doesn’t change the Android version, which remains on 4.4.2 KitKat. Other changes included in the update are the ability to make 911 emergency calls even without a SIM card on the device. There are the usual range of bug fixes in tow as well. The ability to make voice calls using the 4G LTE network is certainly a noteworthy addition, assuming you have support for the feature in your region. The update...

The LTE version of the Nexus 9 can now be purchased through AT&T in the U.S. as well. And to attract more customers to the network, the carrier is now promising to offer a $100 credit from their monthly bill. Strangely, the Nexus 9 is not directly available from AT&T in the U.S., so customers will have to get the tablet from the Play Store and then activate it through an AT&T outlet to avail benefits of this promo. The tablet will have to be bought on a two year contract to receive the bill credit, so make sure you get the...

AT&T’s version of the LG G3 (D8850) has just received its very own official CyanogenMod nightly. Although CM nightlies have been available for the smartphone since a while now, this is the first ROM to appear on CyanogenMod’s official download page. The ROM offered here is CM12, which is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. This downloadable CM ROM is about 232MB in size and lacks the Google Apps package, which you will need to obtain separately. One of the advantages of having a CyanogenMod ROM is that you are assured of timely...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has been in the market for quite a while now. And the AT&T version of the handset is now receiving the Android 4.4 update, after over an year since its launch. The update to Android 4.4.2 changes the software version to C105A_KKUCUBNI1. Since the device was running Android 4.2 prior to this, the user interface will receive a significant improvement, along with some new TouchWiz features although the changelog barely mentions anything. This is the first update to reach the AT&T Galaxy S4 Zoom and unfortunately,...

AT&T has started rolling out a minor firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, bringing along the HD Voice feature. Customers can only access this feature if both parties on the phone call have the feature enabled. Currently, HD Voice is limited to a few regions in the U.S.. The update changes the firmware version to N910AUCU1BNK3 and is a hefty 223.71MB in size. Android version remains the same at Android 4.4.4, so don’t expect to see any stock Android related changes on board. AT&T is also packing apps like Evernote,...

In order to gain more traction in the highly competitive American cellular industry, Sprint has decided to target customers of Verizon Wireless and AT&T with the allure of having their current monthly bills cut by half if they jump ship. This essentially means that you will have to pay half of what you’re currently spending on your carrier right now. Sprint mentions that it will offer up to $350 to pay up the ETF and other fees for the source carrier if necessary, thus making the switch less tedious for the customers. Sprint...

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...
