[Net Neutrality Who?] Verizon's Go90 Video Service Now Exempt From Mobile Data Caps

Android 6.0.1 Starts Rolling To The Sprint HTC One A9 [RUU Provided]

HTC's One A9 is the luckiest Android but non-Nexus non-Android One phone on the planet these days. It keeps getting updates sooner than most other OEM smartphones and is even receiving the monthly security patches faster than all of them too. The unlocked version of the device received Marshmallow 6.0.1 at the end of 2015 and now, one month later, the Sprint carrier version is ready for this update too.

Version 1.57.651.1 of the software brings the A9 all of the new Android 6.0.1 emojis with plenty of improvements that HTC details in its changelog below.


This software upgrade available for your HTC One provides the following key enhancements:
· Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update
· Battery life improvements
· Camera feature improvements
· Addition of Wi-Fi Calling Functionality
· System enhancements

The OTA should have already started rolling to Sprint One A9 devices, but if you don't see the notification yet, be patient because it's probably on a slow release.

T-Mobile Offers Buy One, Get One Half Off Prices On Samsung And LG Flagship Phones, But Not On The Web

Cars. Houses. Contracted electronics. These are items for which the old "buy one, get one" scheme rarely works. But since T-Mobile has ostensibly given up cellular contracts, it makes a sort of sense... at least if you're buying phones for more than one person on the same plan. The carrier is now offering a buy one, get one 50% off discount on all versions of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, the LG G4, and the LG V10, as well as the latest two generations of iPhones.

All colors and capacities sold by T-Mobile are eligible, and you can purchase up to 12 phones at a time(!) and apply the discounts.

[Update: More Balls] After T-Mobile, Sprint Also Takes Exception To Verizon's Balls In A New TV Ad

Considering its reliance on many, many balls, Verizon's latest network comparison ad is fairly innocuous. It uses statistics from a Root Metrics study to boast about Verizon's wireless coverage and performance in relation to its competitors AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The ad is obviously intended to make Verizon look good, and the combination of a condescending voice-over and an elaborate visualization are particularly disparaging to the cheaper, smaller networks.
