Woohoo! Like A Pillow, Verizon Is Here To Support You, Or, Watch This VZW Social Media Rep (Bot?) Treat A Customer Like He's Brain Dead

Let's say you're an angry Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, which isn't a hard thing to be. Your phone still hasn't received Android 4.3, and Android 4.4 is right around the corner. The guy next to you at work has a Nexus 4 on a prepaid T-Mobile plan and uses the entirety of his wireless bill savings to buy KitKat Minis which he throws at you relentlessly while chanting "NEXUS 4 LYFE #HOLOYOLO." He comes dressed to every casual Friday in a homemade Matias Duarte button-down and has told you to "watch this" 38 times this year while using Google Wallet at the weekly staff meeting at Peet's, right before taking a photo sphere of his latte art.

T-Mobile To Push All Customers On Hundreds Of Grandfathered Postpaid Plans To Unadvertised "Select Value" Plans Over Next 2 Months

According to TmoNews and Howard Forums, T-Mobile is beginning the process of moving customers on some of its many, many grandfathered plans (allegedly, 350+ according to a commenter on TmoNews who pretty obviously works for T-Mobile) to unadvertised "Select Value" plans. This does not apply to customers on T-Mobile prepaid plans. T-Mobile issued official confirmation that the carrier would be forcing subscribers to migrate - that is, it's mandatory - but that customers unhappy with the change (after being notified) can cancel service before February 1st next year without paying any early termination fees.

Verizon has pumped an OTA system update down the pipeline for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that adds a few nice features that should pump more life into a tablet that is now a year and a half old. Owners who have maxed out their 16 or 32GB of internal storage will be pleased to know that they can now move apps to an SD card, an option that can be a godsend for a tablet that may be used primarily for gaming.

US Cellular Rolls Out Shared Data Plans, Puts An End To Unlimited Data Plans For New Customers

The concept of shared data plans are nothing new, but not every carrier out there offers one. Yet as more people get their first smartphones, mobile providers want a way to keep the entire family tied to one carrier and to limit how much strain they're putting on the network. So the nation's fifth-largest carrier, US Cellular, has decided to introduce its own shared data plan, driving a stake into the heart of its previous unlimited data plan in the process.

Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V) Now Has Root, But The Method Still Requires A Full Wipe

Last week we reported that the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had a root method from a couple of enterprising gentlemen over at XDA. The same team-up of designgears and Chainfire has now reproduced the Root De La Vega root method for Verizon's Note 3 (model number SM-N900V), which isn't quite as appropriate as far as the name goes, but it's just as awesome.
