The 5.5-inch, LTE-toting LG Optimus G Pro is now available for purchase at AT&T. Packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1080p display, and a 3,140mAh battery, the G Pro's no slouch, and, as we found in our review of the Korean version, stands up well against competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

New Bipartisan Phone Unlocking Bill: DMCA Circumvention Redefined, Permanent Exemption For Carrier Unlock

The legality of certain phone modifications in the United States, particularly those that allow phones to be used on wireless carriers for which they weren't originally intended, is currently on a congressional see-saw. Every three years, the Librarian of Congress has to approve or extend an exemption of the infamous Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to allow or deny consumers the right to unlock (read: carrier unlock, and in some cases rooting/jailbreaking, but not unlocking bootloaders) their phones by circumventing digital rights management.

AT&T's New Aio Wireless Prepaid Arm: What You Need To Know, And Why It May Be Bad News For Straight Talk

AT&T launched its own prepaid arm today called Aio Wireless. It's sort of like Boost is to Sprint - AT&T owns Aio, but Aio is sort of its own company - so it's easiest to think of it like an MVNO (Straight Talk, NET10, Virgin Mobile, etc.). Here's what you need to know about Aio, and how it differs from other MVNO providers using AT&T's network, like Straight Talk.
