Verizon appears to be experiencing a major outage centered around Florida

Verizon's network appears to be experiencing a major service outage centered around Florida. It seems the outage mostly affects calling, not necessarily data or texting. More as we receive it (update: Verizon statement below) - but Down Detector makes it clear something is up. It is not known if any other regions are affected by the outage at this time.

Moto Mod Pricing Leaks In Verizon App, Including An Obscene $299 For The Insta-Share Projector

Verizon has the early exclusive on Motorola/Lenovo's new Moto Z phones, and that means it will also be the first to sell the Moto Mod accessories. Lenovo neglected to announce pricing at the event, but now Verizon's mobile app has spilled the beans... the very expensive beans. That projector attachment will cost a whopping $300.

Lenovo Announces Moto Z And Moto Z Force, With Verizon Droid Editions Arriving First

So Lenovo, you're not going to let Motorola announce its own stuff anymore, is that it? That certainly seems to be the take-away from the company's reveal at its Lenovo Tech World presentation in San Francisco. In between discussions of new tablets, augmented reality 3D design, and network tech, the much-leaked Moto Z flagship was announced at the event, along with the Moto Z Force. They're both coming in "DROID Editions" only to Verizon, at least initially.

Verizon Announces Marshmallow Update For Galaxy Note Edge

Android N (Nutella? Nougat?) is edging closer and closer to an official stable release, but that doesn't mean 6.0 Marshmallow is anywhere close to saturation point: according to Android's official monthly distribution numbers, only 10.1% of Android users are using that latest stable version of the OS. That should increase a little bit more in the next week or two, with Verizon announcing the Marshmallow update for its Galaxy Note Edge is ready.

The update brings all the things you would expect of a Marshmallow-based upgrade. Now on Tap is here (which is getting better all the time), as are on-demand permissions and Doze, saving you crucial battery life.

[Deal Alert] eBay Has A Refurbished Verizon Galaxy Note 4 For Just $205 With Free US Shipping

The Galaxy Note 4 is a little less than two years old now, but Samsung stuffs the Note series so full of high-end technology that it isn't really fair to call it "old." In fact, the Verizon version just got updated to Android Marshmallow earlier this week. The blogging gods must be smiling upon us, because they've offered a serendipitous eBay deal: the same phone, refurbished, for just $204.95. That's approximately five hundred dollars - five and two zeroes - off the original retail price.

Verizon's On A Roll - Galaxy Note 4 Gets Its Marshmallow Update As Well

It's not often that we have cause to praise Verizon for, well, anything, but credit goes where credit is due. In the last month the carrier has upgraded its branded versions of the LG G Pad X 8.3, DROID Maxx 2, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy Tab S2 to Marshmallow. Never mind that they've come more than half a year after Android 6.0 AOSP code became available, we're just happy to see the updates at all (especially for those oft-neglected tablets). The latest device to get a version bump is the faux-leather-clad Galaxy Note 4.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Gets Marshmallow OTA Update

Samsung owners who are on Verizon are lucky this week. Yesterday, the operator started pushing Marshmallow in an OTA update to the Galaxy S5 and today it's ready to roll out the same Android 6.0 to the Galaxy Tab S2.

The software version number is MMB29K.T817VVRU2BPE1 and it brings all of Marshmallow's goodies to the Tab S2, including Doze mode for longer battery life, per-app permissions for more control over your apps, and Google Now on Tap for... whatever you find Now on Tap is useful for. There are many more Android 6.0 features to enjoy too, as we've previously detailed.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 Starts Getting Marshmallow OTA Update

Remember the Galaxy S5? It was, in my opinion, one of the last mediocre flagships that Samsung built, but it's still barely two years old now and that warrants it support and firmware updates, at least up until Marshmallow, which was released when the S5 was about 18 months old.

The Sprint Galaxy S5 got its update at the beginning of April, the T-Mobile one followed last week, and now it's time for Verizon to release its OTA update for the phone. It takes the S5 up to version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1.

The update brings Marshmallow to the Galaxy S5 including per-app permissions, Doze mode, Google Now on Tap, and more of the M goodies that we've extensively discussed before.

It's been just over a month since the Verizon versions of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge received their Android 6.0 updates, which were welcome if somewhat belated. Today the phones get another bump, but there's no version number jump this time. Nope, it's just a few bug fixes and app tweaks. Try to contain your excitement.
