Starting February 11, 2015, All Four Major US Carriers Will Let You SIM Unlock Your Phone - Here's The Fine Print

If you've ever gone to a foreign country with a carrier-branded phone, or tried to use that phone on a different operator in the US, you've probably encountered the problem many have: it's locked. While most carriers did honor unlock requests in the past, or sell their handsets unlocked (like Verizon, mostly), there was no universal policy on the practice in America. As of February 11th, that's changing - the CTIA (basically, the wireless industry's special interest group) is laying out a set of phone unlocking (that is, SIM/network unlocking) principles that AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular will abide by in the wake of the congressional un-banning of phone unlocking.

Sprint's HTC One M8 Lollipop Update Has Apparently Been Pushed Up From February 13th To Today

Yesterday we got our hands on a leaked Sprint document suggesting that the HTC One M8 would get its Android 5.0 update on February 13th. Next to it in parenthesis were the words subject to change. As it turns out, sometimes things actually do change. The carrier has posted an HTC One M8 support page that says the over-the-air update is going out today.

The software bumps things up to software version 4.20.651.10 and provides a sweet serving of Lollipop. I received the big 5.0 OTA for the HTC One M7 yesterday, and while it's not the same phone, things line up pretty well with the M8 screenshots that have already made the rounds.

RIP RadioShack: The Iconic Electronics Retailer Files For Bankruptcy, Sprint To Move Into 1750 Of Its Retail Locations

Today marks the end of an era in retail, as the iconic electronics chain RadioShack filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, weeks after a final warning from the NYSE that its stock would be delisted for falling below market capitalization requirements. While I was too young to really know RadioShack in its heyday, the company that got its start on mail-order ham radio gear in the 1920s, there probably aren't too many people in America who haven't at least walked into one. And, let's be honest, probably promptly walked out, at least if we're talking about the past 15 years.

But fear not, those of you with deeply nostalgic sensibilities: like all good American brands, RadioShack will live on in a tortured zombie limbo state for years to come, thanks to the company's largest shareholder (Standard General) and, of all things, Sprint.

FCC Chair: Broadband Internet, Including Mobile Broadband, Will Be Reclassified As Title II Utility To Preserve Neutral Internet

Tom Wheeler, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, announced today that he will reclassify broadband internet providers as Title II utilities under the 1996 Telecommunications Act. The proclamation, written for Wired, dances back and forth between his specific plans and lots of bluster for a public that is hungry for more ISP regulation. One rather surprising note is that mobile broadband will also be included in this move, which was not nearly as expected or precedented.

What is this all about?

After a lawsuit filed by Verizon a year ago, a federal court ruled that the FCC did not have legal standing to enforce their net neutrality rules.
