Verizon and T-Mobile may not regularly make headlines together, but this morning the two companies have announced that they've struck a deal to swap spectrum (and some money) to bolster both companies' LTE networks. Yes, including the one T-Mobile has yet to build. While specifics haven't been disclosed, it sounds like T-Mobile will be the big winner here, walking away with a net gain in spectrum holdings—something the company desperately needs—while paying an undisclosed amount of money to Verizon for the trouble.
Amazon has just lowered the price of the RAZR MAXX to a staggeringly-low $99 for new customers (it's $199 for upgrades). Check it out here. This is by far the lowest price we've seen on this device (previous low was $149), so if you were waiting for it on the cheap, now's the time to grab it.
Who doesn't love a good deal? Today, Amazon and Wirefly are offering another one today to potential or current Verizon customers: a $40 off your bill if you buy or upgrade to a Verizon 4G phone this week. New customers as well as old will get the $40 credit on their next bill, which is a pretty significant chunk of your bill.
The deal will be going on from now until midnight on Thursday, June 14th, so if you were planning on upgrading, now would be a good time to do it.
Running a little short on storage space with all those apps and music tracks on your phone? Today might be a good time to rectify that problem, as you can pick up a SanDisk 64GB microSDXC card up from Best Buy for $49.99. Compared to Amazon's price of $74, that saves you around 30%.
Not only will you get more than enough storage space for all of your apps and media content, you will also be able to take advantage of faster transfer speeds, as the 64GB microSD card is a class 6 device, offering speeds of up to 30MB/s.
If you're still looking to get your hands on a Sprint-branded Galaxy Nexus, Amazon has a deal for you – Amazon Wireless is offering the Galaxy Nexus right now for $49.99 if you open a new account. This is a great discount, cutting a full $100 off the last deal we saw.
It's worth noting that customers looking to activate a new line or upgrade an existing line can expect to pay $99.99 or $149.99 respectively for the Now Network's debut LTE device.
We have fast SanDisk MicroSD "Ultra" cards ranging from 16GB ($18.99) to 64GB ($59.99) at lowest prices ever for these cards according to all the price checks I've run. The 32GB MicroSD is in the sweet spot of $27.99. Remember, these are not Class 2 or Class 4 - they're high quality Class 6 and Class 10 cards rated for 30MB/s transfer speeds and Full HD video recording.
Tapatalk, the mobile forum app "designed for forum superstars," can now be had for $0.99 in the Play Store, down a full $2.00 from its normal price.
For those unfamiliar, Tapatalk is one of the most popular mobile forum apps in existence, and bills itself as "the only and best fully-functional forum app in the market." The app allows users to quickly access, read, and participate in many of their favorite online forums through a smooth, intuitive interface.
eBay's Daily Deals is once again proving its capacity for awesome - by offering the GSM unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus for just $370. And as far as I can tell, at least in California, you won't even have to cough up sales tax - making this an even better deal than Google's $400 (which totals out at $440 with tax and shipping for CA).
So, you might want to get on that.
If you want the best phone that T-Mobile has to offer, then you undoubtedly want the HTC One S (our review).

If you pick the beasty up from Wirefly over the weekend and use the coupon code HTCONES25, then you'll get it for $125, which is a damn good price for this device (yes, I made a rhyme; no, I didn't do it on purpose).
