One feature that the new Verizon iPhone is getting that isn't available to AT&T customers is the ability to turn the phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five other devices. But could AT&T be getting that option as well?
What do you do when your competition has built out its 4G LTE network a full two years before yours is set to be ready? If you're AT&T, you just start calling your existing 3G network a 4G network. Problem solved!
People, particularly people with iPhones, love to rag on AT&T. But is it really that bad? Yes, it really is, at least according to the trustworthy Consumer Reports.
On October 28th, Verizon is going to introduce the kind of tiered data plans that AT&T adopted not too long ago. For AT&T customers, it was a pretty big bummer: unless they were already unlimited data customers, there was no way to become one. Turns out, Verizon isn't going to ditch unlimited, at least not yet.
If you want tether your iPhone to your computer to share its 3G connection, you have to pony up $20 a month to AT&T for the privilege. Unless you're 15-year-old Nick Lee, who snuck an app that could do it for free into the App Store under the guise of a simple flashlight app.
Well, it's official. The iPhone 4 does have a problem or two. Apple's blaming it on software, which is good because that means the company can fix it. Those left-handed woes, though? Well, those may get worse.
It's been a couple of weeks since the iPhone 4 pre-order fiasco, and it's tempting to forget about it and just talk about the phone. Tempting, but wrong. What happened earlier this month is important, because it was fundamentally a different animal from past iPhone launch woes. Now we can finally point the finger at who's responsible.
Can it be? Will it really happen? Will the iPhone really make the jump to Verizon at the beginning of next year? We don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but news site Bloomberg sounds pretty damn sure, citing two sources in the know.
The iPhone 4 has found its way into the hands of select reviewers (read: approved by Apple) and it's no surprise that they're loving it. The enthusiasm isn't baseless, though. The 4th generation iPhone is scoring high marks for its new design, its FaceTime video chats, HD-quality video recording abilities and its longer battery life. Poor AT&T, though: the carrier that has brought us the iPhone since '07 just can't catch a break, as the reviewers collectively slammed the company's service.
AT&T's decision to axe unlimited data plans earlier this month could have hit you in one of two ways. Either you were worried that you would go over and have to pay more, or you welcome the discount, glad you're not paying for anyone else any longer. No matter how you responded, you better get used to it at the very least, an analyst says.
