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...

Sprint started taking pre-orders for the Motorola Nexus 6 last week with a contract pricing of $299.99. This seemed a little too much and it’s clear that the carrier felt the same as it has now slashed the pricing to $249.99 when bought with a two year agreement. But what about customers who paid the full amount since the pre-orders began a few days ago? Well, Sprint has them covered as well, with a promise of refunding the $50 to customers. Fans have clearly not been impressed by Sprint’s pricing of the Nexus 6, which is...

Sprint has started rolling out the Android 4.4.4 update to its version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 just a few weeks after the global rollout began in late October. The update brings some enhancements to performance and the usual range of bug fixes, but nothing beyond that. The user interface and TouchWiz in general will mostly remain unchanged, with Samsung saving most of the changes for the major Android 5.0 update later this year. The update also brings support for international WiFi calling and an HD Voice icon on your device. As is the...

Samsung’s expensive curved display smartphone, the Galaxy Note Edge is now available for purchase through AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. The smartphone is also expected to arrive on Verizon, but there’s no specific word on when. Considering that three of the top four carriers are offering the device now, it shouldn’t take Verizon long to bring the device to its retail outlets. AT&T has priced the Galaxy Note Edge at $945 off contract or $399.99 with a two year agreement. You can also divide the payments in 20,...

The Sprint branded Nexus 6 has just gone up for pre-order earlier today. The handset was said to be available in stores today, but it seems like low supply issues have hit the carrier as well with T-Mobile already postponing the launch to next week. There’s still no word on when Sprint will start shipping the device to customers or carry the device in its stores, but our hunch says it could be sometime before the end of the month. The smartphone will set you back by $299.99 for the 32GB Midnight Blue variant, which is the only...

If you still don’t have an LG G3 and are looking to get one, you now have another color to choose from. The LG G3 now comes in Blue Steel and is exclusively available at Best Buy stores. Since it’s only at Best Buy, this means it’s limited to either AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. Other than the color swap, this is still the LG G3 that launched earlier this year. With the Snapdragon 801, 2 GB of RAM, a 5.5″ QHD display, and more, it’s still a great smartphone. And if you want to have Lollipop, LG is releasing...

Sprint’s forum page has made an interesting revelation today. According to one of the posts there, the Nexus 5 smartphone will start seeing the Android 5.0 OTA update today. This is slightly odd as Google is yet to publish factory images for the smartphone and it’s unheard of for an OTA update to be issued without factory images being posted. But it is likely that the trend will change this time around and Google might post the factory image anytime now. The build number of the new update is said to be LRX210. Although...

If a new rumor is anything to go by, Sprint could be looking to acquire wireless carrier FreedomPop. It is being said that an unnamed large American technology company as well as a small time carrier are also interested in acquiring FreedomPop, although the source refused to divulge the details. At this point, neither of the concerned parties have confirmed these reports, so take it with a pinch of salt until then. FreedomPop is known for offering free voice and data minutes with its smartphones, so it’s quite popular with the...
