Samsung has announced official US availability dates for the Galaxy S6, and they might sound rather familiar. Just like the HTC One M9, you can pre-order the new Galaxy tomorrow (March 27th) and pick one up on April 10th. The exact details will vary by carrier, but already both AT&T and T-Mobile have announced pre-orders for tomorrow. Other carriers haven't announced official details yet, but I expect it won't be long. Read More
T-Mobile had its Uncarrier 9 event earlier today, and it didn't have anything to do with HTC's announcement. They just happened to be on the same day. John Legere took to the stage as usual with a bombastic attitude and sly smirk to deliver the news. The announcements mostly revolve around business accounts, but there are a few juicy bits for consumers too. Read More
T-Mobile's Uncarrier 8.0 announcement was centered around letting you keep your unused data for a bit longer. Data Stash is already available on all Simple Choice post-paid plans, but now it's coming to prepaid too.

Nexus update documents on T-Mobile's website have just been updated to reflect the newest release of Android is coming: 5.1. Build LMY47D has been spotted in the wild in the past week or so numerous times, but T-Mobile's document is saying that rollout should be happening today for the Nexus 4, 5, and 7 (2013). Whether or not it's right is another question entirely.
Android 5.1 brings tons of stability and bug fixes, as well as new features (check some of them out - here). Read More
Hey, HTC One M7 (2013) owners on T-Mobile, are you jealous of your counterparts in Europe, or on Sprint, or those who use the Developer Edition? You know, because they all have the Lollipop update (or at least access to a ROM file) before you do? Read More
When T-Mobile added a new update tracking progress meter to its website last week, the Galaxy Note 3 was listed as undergoing T-Mobile testing, the second step in a three-step process to deliver Android 5.0. Soon it should be moving up a notch, as a changelog has hit Samsung's site saying that today's the day the carrier starts pushing out the over-the-air update to consumers.
In addition to Lollipop, the changelog makes references to Wi-Fi calling, including a fix for a one way audio issue. Read More
Samsung, LG, and HTC are the heavy-hitters in the Android world - you can generally expect their flagship devices to be on almost every American carrier. So it is with HTC's new One M9, which has been confirmed for four out of the five major US carriers right out of the gate. We asked a US Cellular representative if the company planned to offer the One M9 after they confirmed that they'd be carrying Samsung's new S6 and S6 Edge, and were told that it wasn't on the release schedule at the moment.

As if you hadn't guessed already, all five major United States wireless carriers have confirmed that they will indeed offer Samsung's new flagship phones later this year. AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular have all posted pages that say they'll be selling both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, though details on exact launch dates, prices, and capacities are predictably hard to find. No matter what your preferred carrier, you'll have an option when the phones come out. Read More
General users may not care all that much about software updates, but we smartphone geeks anticipate their arrival with the kind of enthusiasm that most holidays fail to muster.
