AT&T customers will be very sad this summer because there will be no new iPhone release. Instead, Apple's expected to release the next iPhone sometime in September. Verizon says that it's getting the next iPhone at the same time as AT&T. This corroborates with the news that the iPhone 5 is a CDMA/GSM world phone.
When disasters strike and take down AT&T's cell towers, they generally bring in big trucks that serve as temporary replacement towers. But they now have an even more portable solution: towers in suitcases.
It's really not much of a surprise, but it's nice to see these things in bar chart form every once in a while: AT&T drops many more calls than any other carrier.
The big loser in the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile merger (other than consumers) would probably be Sprint, who would end up being the tiny third carrier to the big two of AT&T and Verizon if it goes through. So, unsurprisingly, they're speaking out against it.
Well, it's official: 3D phones are a trend. An hour after Sprint proudly revealed its EVO 3D, AT&T quietly showed off the LG Thrill at a small after-show cocktail event, another glasses-free 3D phone that snaps and captures 3D stills and movies, and plays 3D games like the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS.
In a totally unexpected announcement, everyone's least favorite wireless carrier, AT&T, proclaimed that it had struck a deal to buy out T-Mobile USA for $39 billion. If the deal is approved, AT&T could really become the Death Star conglomerate the media has constantly painted it as.
The always money grubbing AT&T is making headlines again. And once again it's related to the iPhone. The wireless operator is discretely cracking down on iPhone users who are tethering their data plan to other devices using jailbroken solutions. Unauthorized tethering allows other devices to piggyback off the iPhone's data plan to skip out on having to pay an extra fee.
Considering switching from AT&T to Verizon for all your iPhone needs? AT&T would really prefer you don't. That's why they're giving 1000 free minutes to all their iPhone customers.
AT&T is still lagging pretty far behind Verizon when it comes to LTE, with their actual 4G network not set to be ready for primetime for another year or two. But when it does come, expect to have to pick a tier for how fast you want your service to be.
Here's one upside to Verizon getting the iPhone: AT&T now has to, you know, compete with another carrier for your love. The first step? Changing up the text messaging plans for the better.
