The ROM is still a nightly which means it will not be free from bugs, so download it only if...

Sprint now has a nice little promotion for customers switching over from T-Mobile with a promise of getting back at least $550 in early termination fees and other expenses. The $200 out of this is for the trading in the new device, while the remaining $350 will be used to pay off the smartphone that you got on T-Mobile. Since early termination fees only apply to contract devices, you can only use this amount to pay off the remaining full retail price of the device on T-Mobile. Sprint has offered something similar in the past by promising...

Sprint has started issuing a new update to the Galaxy S5 Sport, the Galaxy Tab 4 as well as the three year old Galaxy S III.

Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II will reportedly start receiving a firmware update on the 6th of January according to a statement release by Samsung. The smartphone will receive the update with the version number L900VPUBNK2 and will reportedly bring a new HD Voice icon and some security oriented bug fixes.

It seems like Sprint’s bad time in the mobile industry won’t be coming to an end anytime soon. The carrier has just been imposed a massive penalty of $105 million by the FCC for billing customers towards services like text messages, horoscopes and ringtones. Interestingly, AT&T was found guilty of something similar back in October and had to pay the same amount in fines. If this penalty is approved, all the customers who have complained against Sprint’s malpractice will be reimbursed the damages. This still requires...

As for the changes included in this update, Sprint says that it comes with miscellaneous Android upgrades, so it could be anything. But we’ve...
