T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Getting An OTA Update To Add 4G LTE Support

If you're one of the lucky few with a T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there's an update headed your way. It's based on Android 4.1.2, just like the last one was, but it adds one notable new feature: LTE. Yes, the tablet's latent LTE radio has been enabled with this update.

The new version of the software is starting to hit devices today, but mashing the update button won't help. It's going to be arriving in waves until all tablets have gotten the notification around July 19th.

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.

Leaked Verizon Roadmap Allegedly Pins Down HTC One And Moto X Launch Dates

In what PhoneArena calls a "leaked internal memo," launch dates for the Verizon versions of the HTC One and the upcoming Moto X are allegedly revealed - August 1st and August 23rd, respectively. It also adds to the growing pile of evidence that the Moto X will be coming to Verizon sans-DROID branding. Is there any reason to take stock in this rather generic looking document, though?

[Deal By Default Alert] Verizon Drops Online Price Of Its 32GB Galaxy S4 To $249, Still The Only Place You Can Buy It

Looking for a great deal on the 32GB version of Verizon's Galaxy S4? Well, too bad - you aren't going to find one. Big Red is hoarding the supply of handsets like they're the only bar in a dry county, and it's their way or the highway. Verizon originally announced the 32GB S4 would be available for a staggering (but utterly believable) $299 on contract, $100 more than the 16GB edition, despite the fact that it was actually only $50 more off contract.

T-Mobile just announced its new JUMP! upgrade plan (no more caps after that, I promise), and it's really, really different. Really, really. As far as I am aware, no other mobile network in the world has a smartphone upgrade plan like this. If you haven't already read about the basics on Jump, let me break it down for you.

T-Mobile's 'Boldest Moves Yet:' Biyearly Upgrades, Simple Choice Plans For Families, And A Massive LTE Rollout

T-Mobile's "Un-carrier" re-branding changed the game. It took what those of us in the US know about wireless contracts, threw that out the window, and offered something different. And the company is excited about that. This morning, T-Mobile CEO John Legere took the stage in New York to not only talk about the tremendous growth the company has seen since launching its Un-carrier initiative, but also to announce more new features – the company's boldest moves yet.
