AT&T Announces Samsung Gear S2 And 2nd Gen LG Watch Urbane (Available This Month) Will Be The First NumberSync Devices

AT&T announced NumberSync a few weeks ago as a way to share a single mobile number with multiple AT&T devices. Now we get to see what sort of extra gadgets AT&T is looking to push with NumberSync. The Samsung Gear S2 and 2nd gen LG Watch Urbane LTE smart watches are going to be the launch devices for NumberSync, but the LG watch won't have it right away.

HTC One A9 Now Available From AT&T Online For $520, In Stores November 6th

The HTC One A9 is a fun phone to mock, but as it turns out, it's also a fun phone to use. And if you're an AT&T customer, your chance to do so has arrived.

The carrier offers HTC's first Marshmallow-running device in Carbon Gray and Opal Silver. Either way, you're paying $520. Yes, that's a big leap up from the $400 introductory price, but that's why we call them deals (edit: so you might want to jump on that while you still can).

Since this is AT&T we're talking about, you have no shortage of ways to part with your money.

AT&T Will Be The First US Carrier To Offer The BlackBerry PRIV Starting November 6th

The PRIV represents a turning point for beleaguered BlackBerry. Once the most dominant player in the smart phone arena, BlackBerry has diminished worse than the elves of Rivendell since the rise of iOS and Android. Desperate for relevancy, BlackBerry has abandoned its own OS in favor of the OS created by the competitor that crushed it into near oblivion. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right?

Say what you want about BlackBerry's past blunders, at least their first entry into the Android arena comes with high-end specs and some pretty compelling reasons to consider it over other competitors.

Now, a few weeks after the PRIV's announcement, we have confirmation of when BlackBerry fans, or curious Android lovers, can get their hands on the new device.

T-Mobile Announces 4G LTE CellSpot Personal Cell Tower, Free To Simple Choice Subscribers With A $25 Deposit [Update]

T-Mobile is planning to unveil a new phase of its Uncarrier program next week, but in the meantime, it's revamping Uncarrier 7 from last year. In case you're not keeping count, that was the CellSpot Router. Now, T-Mobile is adding the 4G LTE CellSpot to its lineup. This mini cell tower plugs into your internet to provide a bubble of T-Mobile LTE coverage for up to 16 simultaneous voice/data sessions. It's also kind of free.

CyanogenMod 13 (Based On Android 6.0) Will Include Support For T-Mobile's Wi-Fi Calling

T-Mobile users with the latest devices (and sometimes with the latest software updates) appreciate the inclusion of Wi-Fi calling for those areas where the network doesn't reach or can't penetrate indoors. Of course, the fact that Wi-Fi calling is available is a good reason to abstain from flashing custom ROMs, even on multi-carrier devices like the latest batch of Nexus phones. Apparently that won't be a problem for much longer, at least if you're a fan of the CyanogenMod ROM.

DxOMark Ranks The DROID Turbo 2 As The Fourth Best Smartphone Camera, Between The Nexus 6P And LG G4

Verizon has just started selling the DROID Turbo 2, but the camera experts at DxOMark got their hands on a unit early to test its capabilities, and the results are good. Motorola's newest Verizon-exclusive device scored an 84 in DxO's tests, which places it in the number four position.

T-Mobile's John Legere Continues To Troll Wireless Competitors With Halloween 'Scarriers' Video

I can't decide if John Legere is trying to be a consumer's champion, or if he just really likes pissing off less bombastic executives. In between skywriting over Verizon's New Jersey head office and planning a tenth "Uncarrier" event, the outspoken CEO has just starred in yet another YouTube video designed to win potential customers and antagonize the competition. This one's titled "The Scarriers," and it's a Halloween-themed dig at some of the more outlandish stories about Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon.

Exaggerated names like "Big Red" (Verizon), "The Death Star" (a popular term for AT&T and its globular logo), and "The Big Yellow Bus" (okay, I haven't heard that one before) are interspersed with references to $2 million phone bills and letters to the CEO met with replies from lawyers.

Sprint Announces New $20 'Unlimited' Plan That Throttles To 2G Speeds After 1GB

Sprint has been struggling to keep subscriber numbers up over the last few years, and the collapse of the rumored T-Mobile merger didn't do anything to help matters. The carrier has tried all manner of plan incentives to attract customers (Framily, anyone?), but now it's fiddling with the definition of "unlimited." Sprint's new unlimited plan is only $20 per month... as long as you consider 2G data unlimited.

The DROID Turbo 2 And Maxx 2 Are Now Available For Purchase From Verizon

You can't get the new Moto X from any of the carriers directly, but Verizon does have two Motorola devices ready to go right now. The newly announced DROID Maxx 2 and Turbo 2 are on sale through Verizon's website and in stores. The Turbo 2 is the more expensive of the two, but the Maxx 2 isn't what I'd call cheap, either.

Verizon Officially Unveils The DROID Turbo 2 With 'Shatterproof' Screen And Moto Maker, Coming October 29th Starting At $624

Previous rumors asserted that a beefed up version of the Moto X Style called the Moto X Force would come to the US as a Verizon exclusive known as the DROID Turbo 2. Rumors also said Verizon would boast about a so-called unbreakable display and introduce Moto Maker to a DROID device for the first time. Still with me? Good, because as previously leaked promotional materials showed, all of these claims were true, and now we're getting the official word straight from the horse's mouth. Verizon revealed the DROID Turbo 2 at its previously announced press event today (alongside the mid-range DROID Maxx 2) and proceeded to drop the device from around six feet onto concrete.
