T-Mobile wins every single one of OpenSignal's State of the Mobile Networks awards

Every six months, OpenSignal releases a report on the state of mobile networks in the US, with six total awards. In February 2017's report, T-Mobile and Verizon each won four awards (there were two ties). For August 2017, though, T-Mobile managed to take all six awards, which is something that has never been done before.

Sprint mocks Verizon's prices with hilarious 'Twice the Price' ad campaign

With most commercials in the US, companies compare their products to "the leading brand" or "competing product." But not so in the telecom industry. Carriers often go after their competitors with satirical ads and CEO rants, calling out each other on their claims and figures. Sprint is no stranger to this behavior, and has started a series of ads directly targeting Verizon.

Sprint will be the first carrier in the U.S. to get BlackBerry's KEYone, available starting tomorrow

BlackBerry's KEYone officially launched in Canada a couple of months ago. At the original announcement, TCL (who licenses the BB name) said that the U.S. would be getting its own versions of the anachronistic phone in the months to follow. Starting tomorrow, new and current Sprint customers will be the first to pick up the KEYone here in America.

[Deal Alert] Sprint's HTC 10 can now be had for just $240, and you don't have to be a Sprint customer to get one

The HTC 10 was never the most popular phone on the block. In our review, we found that its many talking points were ultimately overshadowed by its rather hefty $700 MSRP. Fast forward to today, and even though the 10 has aged a bit, it's still a solid choice. Sprint has just lowered the regular price of this 2016 flagship to just $240, and you don't have to be a Sprint customer to pick one up.

Sprint will be the only carrier selling the Essential phone

After months of rumors, Android co-founder Andy Rubin unveiled the Essential PH-1 phone last month. The phone has high-end specs, nearly no bezel at the top or sides, and optional accessories like a 360-degree camera. But a phone from a startup was likely a hard sell to US carriers, and it seems the only carrier that wanted it was Sprint.

Sprint just got three new ZTE devices: the MAX XL, Warp Connect, and Sprint Phone Connect 4

If Sprint is your carrier of choice, you just got three new CDMA-compatible devices to choose from. As of yesterday Sprint now has the ZTE MAX XL, a big but inexpensive phone with a big battery. It isn't new, though it did come out this April. But, it is new to the carrier. There's also the ZTE Warp Connect if a hotspot is more to your liking. Lastly, we have one of the most interesting Android devices in recent memory, the Sprint Phone Connect 4, which gives you a landline over a cellular connection.

[Update: Out of stock, ships in 2-4 weeks] The HTC U11 is available to buy in the US and Canada, some pre-orders have already arrived

HTC announced its latest flagship phone last month. The impossibly shiny HTC U11 with its strange, squeezable Edge Sense sides seems like it might be an improvement on its recent offerings. After recent failures such as the U Ultra (a close relative of the new U11), the Taiwanese firm is in need of a win. After going up for pre-order a few weeks ago, the HTC U11 should be now available to purchase from HTC's US ($649) and Canadian ($899) sites. Some pre-ordered devices have already arrived with customers.

Sprint and T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+ receiving updates that bring the May patch, an updated Bixby app, and improved SD card stability

Samsung may not have the best reputation for keeping all of its phones on the latest OS versions, but it's usually pretty good with its latest flagships. Case in point: an update with the May security patch, as well as improvements to Bixby (no, it's not Bixby Voice) and microSD card stability, is being pushed to the T-Mobile variants of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Sprint models are also receiving an update, and we'd expect it to contain the same things.

[Deal Alert] Sprint offers the LG G6 at 50% off, Best Buy discounts the Verizon version even more to $288

If you've been eying the quasi new LG G6 and you're stuck indoors today and passing your time by browsing, you might have stumbled onto two super nice deals for the phone.

First up, Sprint is offering 50% off the LG G6 by lowering the monthly installments from $29.5 to $14.75 over 24 months. That brings the price down to $360 total. The offer applies to existing "well-qualified" customers and new activations on Unlimited Freedom. It doesn't look like this is one of those deals where you pay the whole sum then get reimbursed credit for the rest, so the discount should apply from the get-go.

AT&T, Sprint, and Virgin Mobile are waiving fees for calls and SMS to the UK in response to Manchester attack

In the wake of the horrific concert bombing in Manchester, AT&T is offering free calls to the area and will credit any calls or SMS messages made to England from the 22nd to 24th. Virgin Media is making all calls to Manchester landlines in the 0161 prefix area free. Virgin Mobile in the US is also waiving fees, as is Sprint. No word yet from T-Mobile or Verizon, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them do the same soon.
