Here's a shocker: in order to conserve precious bandwidth, AT&T plans to start throttling data for the top 5% of users that were grandfathered in on unlimited data plans back in the day. An AT&T spokesperson danced around the subject quite delicately, making sure to note that most users won't be affected by the change:

One new measure is a step that may reduce the data throughput speed experienced by a very small minority of smartphone customers who are on unlimited plans – those whose extraordinary level of data usage puts them in the top 5 percent of our heaviest data users in a billing period.

Earlier this week we found out about a supposed Galaxy S II variant rocking a slide-out QWERTY that was said to be on its way to AT&T. Needless to say, most people were not happy about the addition of a keyboard -- and with good reason. Why ruin one of the thinnest smartphones on the planet by adding a physical keyboard?

Guess what? They didn't.

As it turns out, that wasn't a Galaxy S II variant at all, but a completely different handset that is headed to Ma Bell.

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

Normally, we don't post FCC filings, but this one caught our attention. It appears that a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II with NFC just hit the FCC sporting AT&T radios. But wait, this is where it starts to get interesting. Back in March, another variant with AT&T bands hit the FCC. Curious, yes?

The rabbit hole gets deeper: earlier this week, we saw photos of a version of the GSII sporting a keyboard that is rumored to be heading to AT&T, yet today's filing shows identical dimensions to the European variant of the GSII, suggesting that there is no keyboard.

We normally tend not to report FCC filings and approvals, but this was just too juicy to pass up. Our friends at Wireless Goodness are reporting that the FCC have approved a phone called the SPH-D710 submitted by Samsung.

The CDMA/EvDO and WiMAX version of the device obtained FCC approval indicating that it is headed for Sprint. Furthermore, the camera and speaker placement in the FCC filing document mirrors the placement of the same in the images of the Sprint branded Galaxy S2 leaked by This is my next earlier this month.

Update: Since there are a lot of upset AT&T customers out there, a caring tipster decided to drop a photo over at Android Central that suggests AT&T may be getting a keyboard-less version of the GSII as well. With that said, I will express my absolute skepticism about this. There is but a single picture, and we all know how easily photographs can be manipulated. So, before you get too excited, I urge you all to take this at face value until we get more proof.

It looks like the ATRIX Gingerbread update that started over the weekend is just the start of a line of updates set to hit all AT&T 2011 model post-paid smartphones by the end of this year. Ma Bell is standing on the rooftop shouting out this glorious news for all to hear, along with a list of the phones that will see Android 2.3 sometime this year:

  • HTC Inspire 4G
  • LG Phoenix
  • Motorola ATRIX 4G
  • Pantech Crossover
  • Samsung Captivate
  • Samsung Infuse 4G

Once the ATRIX update is complete, the next device to get some Gingerbread lovin' will be the HTC Inspire 4G, with the update rolling out "in the coming weeks."

Where applicable, the updates will be in delivered OTA (over-the-air) fashion, but in some cases may require PC intervention (because we all know how much manufacturers love their proprietary software).

Better late than never, right? Motorola's first dual-core handset, the ATRIX 4G, has finally received the green light for Gingerbread - and the OTA is a go. If you head into your Settings menu, and hit About Phone, then System Updates - the update should be waiting for you. If not, just wait a while - OTA's often take several days or even weeks to complete the "rollout" process.

What does the update bring?

The Motorola Defy is no joke: it's built to withstand being dropped, submerged in water, and is dust/scratch proof. According to This is my next, the next version of the Defy - subtly called the Defy+ - could be right around the corner and coming to an AT&T store near you.

The word on the street is that the second iteration of this durable handset is sporting 850 / 1900 / 2100 HSPA radios (hence the AT&T assumption) and is said to rock a 1GHz OMAP 3620 processor in place of the OMAP 3610 in the current version, as well as Android 2.3.3 right out of the box.

The-Google-Samsung-Nexus-S-4G

In a move that feels oddly reminiscent of Verizon announcing the iPhone (read: announcing a nearly year old device), AT&T just told the world that it would be getting the Samsung Nexus S, which is immediately available for pre-order from Best Buy for $99 with a two-year agreement.

This version of the Nexus S is lacking HSPA+, which makes it exactly like the T-Mobile version that landed in December of last year.

The U-verse AT&T Mobile app that allows users to access their DVRed shows and movies, as well as the entire mobile library of over 700 shows, from their smartphone picked up support for three more devices today: the LG Thrive, LG Phoenix, and Samsung Infuse 4G, bringing the total number of supported devices to more than 20.

In related news, AT&T also pushed out its U-Verse Service and Support Tool app (SST), which offers customers quick access to a gaggle of support documents and tools for their U-Verse TV, internet, voice, and email services.
