[Deal Alert] The International LG G5 (With Band 12 Support) Dips Below $500 On eBay

Good things come to those who wait. Nowhere is that adage more true than when shopping around for high-profile, high-margin smartphone hardware. For example, LG's modular G5 flagship can now be had for under $500, at least if you're willing to buy off eBay. A vendor there is selling the international unlocked version (model number H860) for $496 even, almost $200 off of the retail price at most carriers. Black, white, gold, and pink versions are available, and US residents in the lower 48 can swing free shipping too.

The 25% Developer Discount On The Pixel C Is Now Active In Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland

Remember that sweet 25% discount on the Pixel C tablet for "developers?" (Don't worry, you don't actually have to be a developer.)

Customers in Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland can now take 25% off of the local currency price.

Netflix Will Block Proxies That Let Users Access Movies And TV Shows Not Available In Their Home Countries

Netflix is one of those American services that people in other countries are intensely jealous of if they can't get it. And with such a wide variety of TV shows (and at least a few dozen movies, too) for a few bucks a month, who could blame them? But now that Netlfix has expanded to literally hundreds of new countries and territories, there's no need to look longingly at the US anymore... or to use any of the elaborate web proxy workarounds to get access to the service outside of supported areas.

Now that Netflix has made its big international push, they're working on cutting down on that proxy use.

[Deal Alert] The Second-Gen Moto G (International GSM Version) Is Just $100 On Amazon, US Version Out Of Stock At The Moment

Black Friday is over, but there are still a ton of great deals waiting for bargain hunters on the web. Amazon has a particularly good sale for anyone who wants a great Motorola phone on the cheap. The international GSM version of the second-gen Moto G (that's the 2014 model) is now $99.99 on Amazon's US site, an impressive $80 off the retail price. It's an excellent deal for someone who needs a solid device without the high price (or, notably, the LTE radio) of more robust models.

Note that this is the global GSM model, not the US GSM version, so while it will work in most countries around the world, it will have poor reception on T-Mobile in the States.

A Root Method For All Regional And Carrier Variants Of The LG G4 Is Live On XDA

Got an LG G4? You lucky dog, you. The impressive technical specs and highly adjustable camera, plus features like a removable battery and a MicroSD card slot, have made it a popular flagship choice for power users. Some of those power users will naturally want to tinker with their phones... and now they can. Over on XDA-Developers, forum poster "thecubed" (who's well-known for previous LG exploits) and his team are showing off a solution that they claim can gain root permissions on all versions of the LG G4, regardless of carrier or international status.

At the time of writing the root method is available for the international H815 10c model, plus the AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile versions.

[Deal Alert] Expansys USA Offers The 32GB International LG G Flex 2 For $329.99 ($170 Off Retail)

The LG G Flex 2 is a pretty good phone, even compared to LG's own flagship G4, and it's a great option if you're tired of all the ever-bigger screens that seem to be the current rage. It's also got a pretty decent price: US Cellular sells it for $50, AT&T sells it for $100, and Sprint is selling it for $200 at the moment, with off-contract prices ranging from reasonable at around $500 to ludicrous at over $700 (thanks, AT&T). If you want a good deal without the carrier ball and chain, Expansys is currently selling the phone for just $329.99.

T-Mobile's Latest Uncarrier Promotion Is 'Mobile without Borders' - T-Mo Phones Now Work The Same In Canada And Mexico At No Extra Charge

John Legere, the mobile CEO who can't get Deutsche Telekom to love T-Mobile no matter how many new customers they sign up, is back with another jab at his competitors. T-Mobile already features some pretty extraordinary free international roaming extras, but now it's going whole hog on the two countries that Americans visit the most: Canada and Mexico. Starting next week if you cross the border to the north or south, your T-Mobile phone will work the same as it does in the States. Take it away, John:

Notice that nowhere in the video or in T-Mobile's promotional site is the word "roaming" used, and that's by design - this isn't roaming.
