Update: One commenter noticed that the new colors of the DROID MAXX have 16GB of storage, not 32GB like the original matte version. For shame, Verizon/Moto, especially since the MAXX has no microSD card slot. Thanks, Jason Stanton!

When Verizon launched the latest generation of Motorola DROID phones back in August, the long-lasting DROID MAXX was only offered in a matte black color. It seems a little belated, but as of today Verizon is selling the Moto flagship in two new color options: glossy red, and matte black with new silver trim on the speaker grille, Motorola badge, power button, and volume rocker.

So. Sprint. About that KitKat 4.4.3 update you mentioned for the Nexus 5. You haven't seen it lying around anywhere, have you? Because we certainly haven't. And neither have any of our readers.

Wherefore art thou, KTU84F? Huh. Doesn't have the same ring.

Apparently something has gone wrong over at Sprint, because not only have we not seen the 4.4.3 KTU84F software update headed for any Nexus 5 units, the Sprint support page has removed the brief mention of 4.4.3 from its update chart.

Republic Wireless saw success with its offer of the Moto X last year, and now the carrier has made good on its promise to start selling the low-cost Moto G. For a mere $149 you can get the 8GB Moto G on Republic with no contract and cheap WiFi calling.

Republic Wireless piggybacks on the Sprint network, but augments that with WiFi calling when you're connected to a network. Unlike other VoIP solutions, Republic Wireless can hand-off a call from WiFi to cellular if you lose connection.

Hey, you. Yeah, you with the fancy curvaceous phone. Stop showing off that flexible frame and self-healing back, and check your settings menu. According to AT&T's blog, the LG G Flex is being updated to Android 4.4 as of today. Huzzah, excelsior, and general rejoicing abound. At least a few users over at XDA have already received the over-the-air update.

The original LG Lucid wasn't anything to write home about, but for some reason Verizon kept the name around for the much-improved mid-range sequel. Now the phone line is getting a third entry, as the Lucid 3 has appeared on Verizon's site after a candid leak last month. New Verizon customers can pick up the phone for free on-contract, and those who prefer to go without the ball and chain can pay a reasonable $299.99.

Google's regular expansion of carrier billing, which lets customers charge apps and and other purchases to their next wireless bill, has been mostly focused on Europe for the last year or so. But if you're a customer of the Total Access Communication Public Company Limited of Thailand, better known as "DTAC," you now have the option as well. According to the support page for the Play Store's carrier billing, DTAC joined the list late last night.

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S5 globally last Friday, making it available for purchase at retailers all over the world. That said, not everyone is able to get their hands on it just yet. Sprint MVNO Ting isn't able to offer the devices at the same time as the carrier it's reliant on - but at least this time the wait isn't too long. Ting Galaxy S5 pre-orders are now available, with devices shipping out May 5th.

Update: Build KTU84F will hit devices between today and April 21st. Sprint hasn't fixed the typo on its support page, but the forum post has the build right.

What a day for an OTA – specifically, Android 4.4.3 for the Nexus 5. Sprint has updated its support page to indicate KTU84F is dropping today, which we understand to be the rumored 4.4.3 release. There is a Sprint-specific tweak in this update, but the software should also be hitting N5s that aren't connected to the Sprint network at the same time.

T-Mobile introduced a whirlwind of changes last year as it rebranded itself as the "Un-carrier," with perhaps its most substantial shift being the decision to forgo annual contracts, breaking away from a long-standing practice among carriers in the US. Now the company is doing away with another perpetual mobile pain in the rear by eradicating its domestic overage charges. This applies regardless of whether you're on a Simple Choice plan, the new Simple Starter, or an older plan - and it will take place starting in May, with those bills arriving in June.
