Customers looking to get a decent contract smartphone from Verizon can receive a 50% discount on the price, assuming they pick a smartphone worth over $199 or above in value. Currently, devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and a variety of iPhones are available at this price, so this discount will most probably only apply on flagship offerings. Verizon is currently offering the Galaxy Note 4 for $149.99 down from its original $299.99 price tag. The Motorola Droid Turbo and the Sony Xperia Z3v on the other hand are going for just $99.99...

Verizon is now rolling out an OTA update to the Motorola Droid Turbo. And before you get excited, no this doesn’t bring Android 5.0 to the device. However, the carrier mentions the arrival of the Advanced Calling 1.0 feature which allows you to use voice and data simultaneously. Barring this, the update also brings some changes to the email app which now shows attachments on top rather than piling them at the bottom. There are also some bug fixes in tow, although Verizon fails to clarify what kind. The OTA update should start rolling...

With Lollipop being released for over a dozen devices now, many of them being Motorola, it’s only natural that another would follow. Now, Motorola is doing a soak test of what seems to be Lollipop for the Droid Turbo. Besides Lollipop being included in this soak test, it appears that VoLTE will be coming to the device as well. These are both great improvements, both hardware and software wise. It’s unknown when the final update will begin rolling out to all customers, but it will probably be very soon based on past Motorola...

Yesterday, we told you about a deal on the Verizon Droid Turbo which was selling with a $100 or $150 Best Buy gift card. The retailer is now offering another Verizon offering, this time the HTC One M8 for a pretty decent price of $29.99, provided you’re willing to sign a two year agreement. Off contract, the device still costs a hefty $749.99, which is a lot more than the price offered elsewhere. Clearly, the emphasis here is on locking you up with a two year agreement, which justifies the low price tag. For those interested,...

Verizon is now offering a sweet deal for customers looking to get the Motorola Droid Turbo on contract. If you sign a new two year agreement to get the handset, you will receive a $150 Best Buy gift card. But if you’re an upgrading customer, you will receive a $100 gift card. There’s obviously more incentive for new customers, which is standard practice. However, if you’re not willing to sign a new agreement and just want to upgrade your existing device, there’s enough money there too. This deal is also applicable...

Verizon has already taken necessary measures to ensure that customers from 3G networks switch to the faster and more efficient 4G LTE networks. It now seems like the carrier will put its plans to fruition very soon as some 3G regions are now being transitioned into LTE areas. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Verizon is ready to flip the LTE switch across the country right away, as it has to take the users into account as well. A large number of users don’t use 4G LTE compatible devices, which needs to be rectified...

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...

Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has started receiving the Android 4.4.4 update today. The carrier is also bringing some much needed improvements to the device along with the update, so it’s not a minor firmware update. Verizon claims that apart from fixing Android related bugs, the update also brings a patch for the pertinent Bluetooth bug which restricted audio while the WiFi was toggled on. The LTE data connectivity is also seemingly improved and so is the overall call reception. You can check the complete...
