There are two types of people in this world: those who stick with the same carrier for decades at a time, and those who jump from one to another in order get the best phones. If you fall into the latter category, now may be the time to head over to AT&T, because the HTC One X just dropped to a penny at Amazon Wireless.
Thinking of getting a new phone on AT&T just to see what it's all about? If you don't dig it, you have a month to return it, right? Unfortunately... no. Not after tomorrow, anyway; AT&T is dropping its device return policy from 30 days to 14, basically cutting the return window in half.
So what happens if you want return your device after the 14 day window? You'll owe AT&T a full ETF (early termination fee) for your remaining contract (read: all of it).
CyanogenMod has added yet another pair of devices to the nightlies list for CM10, today bringing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the T-Mobile Galaxy S II. Hit up the source links below to get your ROM on and, as always, flash with care.
Following the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note II in the UK on Monday, Vodafone is now offering the device alongside Three.
The network has only the white version of the Note II for now, with plans starting at £33 a month for 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. At this price, you will also have to pay £149 up-front. For £37 a month, you can get unlimited minutes and texts and double your data allowance to 1GB per month as well, with the phone costing £99.
For those who may not be familiar with the L9, it's a mid-ranger that was announced back at the end of August:
- 4.7" IPS display
- 1GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 4GB storage
- Android 4.0
Of course, we can't guarantee that the T-Mobile variant will house the same guts, but it's unlikely that they'll change it up too much.
Before you ask, no, we don't know how much, and we don't know when. Yeah. Sorry. Anyway, if you've been looking forward to the first mass-market Snapdragon S4 Pro smartphone, you're in luck. Because at some point in the future (wooooooo) you'll be able to get it on AT&T or Sprint! That smartphone, of course, is the LG Optimus G. Which, if you haven't heard about it, must mean you've been living under a rock for the last month while LG has personally gone door to door making sure literally everyone has seen it.
If you have a Galaxy S III on US Cellular, we're here to give you some good news: you're getting Google Wallet. And you can probably actually get it today if you download the update manually from Samsung. First, though, let's take a look at this leaked image showing the changes the update brings:
Basically, a lot of updates to stock apps, and various bug fixes you can see detailed in the image above.
Previously, we'd heard rumors and whispers that T-Mobile (by way of its parent company Deutsche Telekom) would be acquiring MetroPCS. Today, both companies' boards have approved the merger and, pending regulatory and MetroPCS shareholder approval, the deal should be completed by mid-2013. The two companies will have a combined subscriber base of about 42.5 million customers, which still leaves it in fourth place in the U.S. behind Sprint with 56 million and AT&T/Verizon who each have over 100 million users.
That means that if you're an Orange or T-Mobile customer, you can now buy the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE, HTC One XL, or Huawei Ascend P1 LTE on contract to ensure that you're ahead of the game before 4G goes live in the UK at the end of this month.
