AT&T has a new BOGO deal on the Apple iPhone X for Father's Day

This Sunday, June 17th, is Father’s Day and that traditionally means there will be some great deals on new smartphones. For example, AT&T now has a BOGO deal on 2018’s most popular handset, the Apple iPhone X. As Dr. Phil might say, when it comes to such an offer, this isn’t the carrier’s first rodeo. After all, back in February AT&T went BOGO on the tenth anniversary iPhone.
So here’s how this works. Buy two 64GB Apple iPhone X units on AT&T’s Next (30 months) or Next Every Year (24 months) installment plans. Taxes are due at the time of purchase. The …


Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile, who do you think has the best unlimited plans now?

Starting as soon as Monday, June 18th, Verizon’s new Above Unlimited plan, as well as the unique ability to mix and match plans on different lines within the same family, will kick into existence.
The Above Unlimited option may be a godsend for those who travel a lot abroad, as it includes five free days of TravelPass activations per month (up to a $50 value), plus free 500GB cloud storage, and, above all, more than triple the speed de-prioritization (aka throttling) limit of the previous, Beyond Unlimited plan. Heck, with a 75GB restriction potential on full …

WTH? T-Mobile offers $250 to certain AT&T grandfathered unlimited subscribers who make the switch

Last week, we informed you about AT&T’s decision to hike the monthly price of unlimited service to subscribers grandfathered into low priced unlimited service. The nation’s second largest carrier has not offered this particular plan for eight years, and will raise the price to $45 per month for each grandfathered subscriber. That is still a bargain compared to the $65 a month that AT&T’s current unlimited tier is priced at. And those grandfathered into the older plan don’t have to deal with the caps on the speeds of streaming services, like the one that limits video streams to 480p.
Still, …

AT&T and FirstNet team up on compatible phones for first responders, here's the list

AT&T is the preeminent carrier when it comes to natural and man-made disaster services now. Back in 2017, it won a quarter-century contract from FirstNet to roll out and maintain a dedicated LTE network that will exclusively serve the communication needs of “first responders” like police officers, firefighters, emergency medical and other services throughout the United States’ 56 states and territories. 

This first responders’ network has been a long time coming, ever since the 9/11 communications kerfuffle forced the government to set aside 700 MHz band …

AT&T rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

Verizon recently announced that the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge is ready to be deployed, but then removed the official changelog from its website.

AT&T goes BOGO on the LG V35 ThinQ for Father's Day

AT&T has come up with a deal for Father’s Day that no other carrier can touch. It is a BOGO deal for the LG V35 ThinQ, and the reason why Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint can’t match or beat this promotion is because the LG V35 ThinQ is an AT&T exclusive. The phone was introduced six days ago and will be released on June 8th. Father’s Day is Sunday, June 14th. AT&T opted for this phone instead of carrying the LG G7 ThinQ because of the latter’s notchy LCD panel. The V35 ThinQ is notchless and carries an OLED display.
AT&T boils the deal down to four …
