PSA: Wirefly Is Now Selling The 32GB Verizon Galaxy S 4, And It's Only $220

Just yesterday Verizon dropped the price of its Galaxy S 4 by $50, which in itself was a noteworthy deal since directly from Big Red was the only place you could find the 32 gigger. Until today, that is. Wirefly has now made itself the only other retailer to offer the 32GB S 4 running on Verizon, and of course, it's also more affordable at only $220 for both upgrades and new customers.

Verizon Galaxy S4 VRUAME7 Update Available Via Desktop Tool - Blocks Existing Root Methods And Patches Bootloader

Samsung Galaxy S4 owners on Verizon, there's a new update available for your phones. But don't bother checking your Settings menu for an over-the-air prompt: it's only available via the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant after connecting the device to a PC. Standard users should be fine, but rooted users (or those who intend to root or flash a new ROM sometime in the future) should avoid this one. According to several posters on XDA, the VRUAME7 patches existing root methods, and flashes a new version of the locked bootloader that prevents users from flashing a pre-release kernel, effectively blocking another path to root.

Jelly Bean Coming To Verizon's Droid Xyboards Eventually, All Other Variants Will Likely Stay On ICS

So here's a new one: a carrier-branded device is going to get an Android version bump while its Wi-Fi only counterparts are stuck on an older version. This is against everything we've seen in the Android world since the dawn of time, where Wi-Fi devices normally surpass their cellular-connect brethren on a regular basis. To make the situation even more interesting, we're talking about Verizon devices here.

Here's the skinny: Motorola recently updated its upgrade page for the Verizon Xyboard twins, stating that they would each get updated to Android 4.1.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 Developer Edition Now Available For $650

Locked bootloaders can be a real drag. While it's possible to circumvent these security measures on the GS4, it can be a messy process. Maybe a developer edition device is the way to go? Well, Verizon customers can finally buy the developer edition Galaxy S4 from Samsung for the paltry sum of $649. The AT&T developer edition is still missing in action.

This device first appeared on the Samsung site along side the AT&T model in May.

Verizon Galaxy S III Update VRBMF1 Announced, Brings Multiple Improvements And Probably Won't Break LTE This Time

Verizon pushed out an update at the end of May to add a number of enhancements to the Galaxy S III. However, after users flooded the Verizon forums with reports of broken LTE, Big Red pulled the update. A slightly tweaked version is about to roll out with a few more features, and presumably no LTE issues.

The update listing doesn't make mention of the data fix, but that's understandable. It should be noted that this update's changelog is a bit different than the last one.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Drops Verizon's Droid DNA To A Penny For New Contracts And Upgrades

If Verizon's HTC One kind-of announcement just didn't do it for you because you can't stay away from the red-and-black-themed Droid line, Amazon has HTC's next best offering on the table for a solitary penny. Of course we're talking about the Droid DNA, the undeniable king of Big Red's Droid lineup for the time being.

Despite the fact that the DNA was released back in November of last year, its spec sheet is still a fairly impressive one:

  • 5-inch Super LCD3 at 1920x1080 (440 PPI)
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera
  • 2020mAh battery
  • Android 4.1.1 with Sense 4+

Sure, it doesn't have BOOMSOUND, Zoes, Ultrapixels, or other buzzwords – but c'mon, it's got its own now-famous red eye and a DROID logo, and it's only a penny.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Wireless Drops Verizon's Galaxy S 4 To $119 For New Contracts

A few days ago, Dell dropped the price of both Sprint's and Verizon's variants of the Galaxy S 4 to $119 and $129 respectively. Not to be outdone, Amazon Wireless has now undercut Big D by $10, and is offering Verizon's GS4 for $119 for new contracts ($170 for upgrades). That's a pretty solid deal if you don't want to buy from Dell, though I'd be remiss not to mention the $50 eGift card that Dell is throwing in if you do decide to buy through them.

Verizon may not be the fastest carrier when it comes to sending out over-the-air updates, but it looks like it's finally getting around to pushing a fairly sizable 129.1MB update to its version of the Galaxy S III. The OTA brings many small improvements, as well as a slew of Samsung-specific customizations along for the ride.

Verizon's Galaxy S4 Will Be The First Device To Operate On The Carrier's AWS LTE Bands

Verizon managed to gobble up national licenses to a wide swath of the 700MHz Block C spectrum a few years back, and it is this slice of electromagnetism the carrier used to deploy its 4G LTE network. That's not Verizon's only plan of attack, though. It has also been putting together a second spectrum range running on AWS. Well, this space is almost ready, and the Galaxy S4 is going to be the first device to access it.
