LG G3 On T-Mobile And AT&T Starts Getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

We love it when "old" devices get updated to new versions of Android, especially when said old devices are really great smartphones that were popular in their day and still serve their job even in today's landscape. My LG G3, for example, is now in my mother's hands and she has zero complaints about it since it does more than she could ever need. I'm still waiting for Marshmallow to hit her phone though, because as much as she doesn't care what Android version runs below the surface, I do want her to have Doze to improve the aging battery's life and to get a newer Android Security Patch Level (which is sure to come with a full system update).

T-Mobile, AT&T, And Sprint Offer Free Calls And Texts To Ecuador Following Deadly Earthquake

US carriers offering free service to disaster-stricken areas of the world has become something of a grim but inspiring tradition at this point. After a devastating earthquake struck the area off the coast of Esmeraldas, Ecuador last night, all of Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile have announced that they are offering free calls and texts to the country for the time being. This allows US residents to contact family members and friends in the affected areas. The offer extends to any calls or texts made from yesterday through Sunday, April 24th on Sprint, Saturday the 23rd on T-Mobile, and Friday the 22nd on AT&T.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To The Moto MAXX, T-Mobile Galaxy S4, Verizon Galaxy S5, And GSM/WiFi Galaxy Note 8.0

Over the past week, CyanogenMod 13 nightlies have been released for several Android phones and tablets, breathing new life into what can be now considered old hardware. Most of the devices had CM12.1 prior, meaning that the jump they're witnessing is just from Lollipop 5.1 to Marshmallow 6.0, but the Verizon Galaxy S5 never had CM12, it was on CM 11 (KitKat) prior to this update. That must feel like a quantum leap.

Alright, now to the meat of the matter. The devices with new CM13 nightlies are:

  • Motorola Moto Maxx "quark"
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (T-Mobile) "jfltetmo"
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 (Verizon) "kltevzw"
  • Galaxy Note 8 (GSM) "n5100"
  • Galaxy Note 8 (Wi-Fi) "n5110."

These being nightlies, expect bugs and instability so you may be better off flashing them on devices that aren't your daily drivers.

The HTC 10 Will Not Be Sold By AT&T, But The Unlocked Version Will Be Compatible

HTC has just announced its latest flagship, the HTC 10. This phone is seen by many as the company's last chance to get back on track. It's not off to an amazing start, though. AT&T, a long time partner of HTC, won't be carrying the HTC 10. That has to sting. It's only going to be sold directly by Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile.

T-Mobile LG V10 To Get Marshmallow Update Starting Next Week

Some people would consider the V10 to be LG's most exciting phone of last year. If you agree with the tone of David's review of the G5, it still may be LG's best device.

Those of you who use one on T-Mobile's network are in for a treat. The carrier apparently plans to start sending out over-the-air updates next week.

T-Mobile Announces New 'Data Gone Wild' Spring Promotion

T-Mobile Adds More Services To Music Freedom And Binge On: Amazon Music, ESPN Radio, DailyMotion, Nickelodeon, And More

In my tiny little corner of the world, we get very few perks with any of our mobile plans. No unlimited calls, no unlimited texts, and lots of limited data. That hasn't stopped an enterprising local music service from convincing carriers to offer an unlimited streaming plan only on their app for a small fee. That goes to show that people may not care about calls or texts anymore, but there's always room for offers when it comes to entertainment.

T-Mobile has been trying to pioneer that area in the US and (politics and legalese and execution aside) has managed to get really good deals for customers who might be interested in them. I am such a music and TV show addict that I wish I lived in the US and could benefit from "free" data usage on some streaming services, even if it meant a loss in the quality of the stream.
