Some Apple iPhone users on AT&T can't make or take calls (UPDATE)

If you are an AT&T subscriber with an Apple iPhone, you might have found it difficult to make or answer a phone call today on your device. The nation’s second largest carrier is experiencing some sort of network issue that instantly disconnects calls once they are connected. Calls made to some iPhone models that support the AT&T pipeline are sent right to voicemail, without giving the device user a chance to answer.

UPDATE: The outage now appears to be affecting all AT&T customers regardless of the device they use.

AT&T dropping your calls? This setting might help

The weird voice call disconnect outage that has been affecting AT&T subscribers since yesterday, regardless of their iOS or Android affiliation, is seemingly abating, but the issue seems to stem from voice-over-LTE identifiers, so changing a setting on your iPhone might help. 

No, we aren’t talking about AT&T’s advice to keep restarting your phone until it actually begins connecting your calls, but to turn off VoLTE for the time being. On your iPhone, go to Settings>Cellular>Cellular Data Options>Enable LTE, and set it to “Data only,” instead of the “Voice&data” …

Verizon and AT&T team up to lease new cell towers being built by a third party

The nation’s top two largest mobile carriers, Verizon and AT&T, are teaming up with Tillman Infrastructure to build hundreds of cell towers. Tillman will be building the towers to the specs requested by the two mobile operators, and both Verizon and AT&T have agreed to lease them.

Here is how you can get a free iPhone 8 64GB when you buy an iPhone X at AT&T

Remember we reported last month that AT&T doesn’t want to aggressively promote the iPhone X, so it decided not to offer any deals on Apple’s flagship? Well, it looks like there might be something in that the carrier will offer customers who can afford one, it’s just that the promotion will not be advertised.

We’ve got word that for a limited time, customers who buy the iPhone X can get the iPhone 8 64GB for free (after bill credits) when both are purchased on an installment plan with eligible service.

The offer is available since November 2, but eligible …

Huawei Mate 10 Pro reportedly headed to AT&T


One of Huawei’s newest high-end smartphones, the Mate 10 Pro, might be released via AT&T in the coming months. According to XDA, which
obtained some firmware files revealing pre-installed AT&T apps on a Mate 10
Pro, the handset won’t be sold by any other US carrier, so it’s going to be an AT&T exclusive product.

AT&T sells only 10,000 Moto Z2 Force handsets since its launch; Motorola's U.S. share rises 91%

BayStreet Research is a company that tracks sales of specific products. One of the devices it tracked recently was the AT&T branded Moto Z2 Force. The data revealed that since the launch of the phone in August, the nation’s second largest carrier sold only 10,000 units through the end of October.

Last year, the Moto Z Force Droid was a Verizon exclusive and as such, it was part of the carrier’s historic Droid lineup. Not wanting to limit its sales to Verizon …
