Verizon Teases Upcoming VoLTE Service With Video Calling

Even if you don't talk on the phone a lot, VoLTE is going to be a thing that you want. Replacing the old 3G standards for voice will mean one less radio always sucking down power in your device when you're in an LTE area. Verizon (as well as other carriers) is already testing VoLTE on some of its devices, and it apparently also intends to build video calling into VoLTE-capable phones as part of its so-called "Advanced Calling 1.0" initiative in the coming weeks.

Update 2: Amir Efrati, author of The Information's report, says Verizon is a lying piece of crap:

Verizon's HTC One Max Finally Getting The Sense 6 OTA

If you hopped on the I want a really big HTC phone train, then you probably have a One Max. If that One Max also happens to be on Verizon, it's time to start checking for updates, because Sense 6 is rolling out now. Woo for you.

This update doesn't appear to have much else going for it, as the device is already running Android 4.4.2, but I guess a major revision to the custom skin is nothing to scoff at.

Android 4.4.3 Update For Verizon HTC One M8 Pushed To Mid-September

Owners of HTC's latest flagship on Verizon have been patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) waiting on the promised update to Android 4.4.3 for some time now, but it looks like they'll be waiting a little longer. Even though the T-Mobile One M8 got its update today, HTC's US president Jason Mackenzie has confirmed on Twitter the OTA is currently targeted for mid-September on Verizon.

Android 4.4.2 Update For Verizon's LG G Pad 8.3 Is Rolling Out Now

I really like my LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition (or as we call it 'round the office, the LGGP83GPE), and it's a bit disheartening that the standard version isn't getting more traction. But at least Verizon's LTE model is now on Android 4.4, as confirmed by Google+ users. Verizon's standard upgrade page says that the KitKat 4.4.2 OTA update adds a few changes to LG's software skin as well.

Verizon Releases The Gigantic LG G Vista And The Rugged Kyocera Brigadier, $99 Each On-Contract, With Little Fanfare [Update]

Update: Verizon's specification page has been changed to indicate that the LG G Vista has an "HD" screen. It looks like there was an error in the original spec list. We're going to assume that means that it's a 1280x720 screen.

Looking for a mid-range phone on Verizon? Then you've got two more choices starting today. The LG G Vista, an enormous "phablet" device, and the Kyocera Brigadier, the latest in the company's line of "tough" phones, are both on sale now at Verizon's website.

Android 4.4.4 OTA Is Rolling Out For The Verizon Moto X And Moto G

It's never a bad thing when phones get the latest version of Android software, and Motorola seems committed to sending it to their devices sooner rather than later. After the usual Verizon soak test a couple of weeks ago, the updated ROMs are ready and apparently flying out to both the high-end Moto X and Verizon's customized CDMA Moto G. If you don't see the update alert in your notification bar, you should sometime over the next few days.

Verizon Will Begin To Use Network Optimization (Throttling) For Heavy Unlimited LTE Users Starting In October

It's impossible for new customers to buy unlimited mobile data from Verizon. But this wasn't always the case: back in the glory days of, uh, 2010 and earlier, Verizon Wireless was still offering true unlimited data for as little as $30 a month. It's been increasingly hard for users who want to keep their unlimited data to do so: since late 2012, they haven't been able to buy a new subsidized phone without switching over to a plan with a data cap, and the "grandfathered" unlimited data customers who download the most are already subject to "network optimization" when using Verizon's 3G network.

Verizon Formally Launches The HTC One Remix ($50 On Contract) And Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 ($360 On Contract)

Big Red is welcoming two new devices to its stable today: HTC's mid-range One Mini 2 One Remix, and Samsung's 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4. Both are available on the Verizon website right now, and should be in retail stores today or soon thereafter. The One Remix costs $49.99 on-contract (half of what we expected), or $449.99 without the commitment, which actually isn't bad as far as Verizon phones go.

Verizon HTC One Remix Is Official, Coming July 24th For $99.99 On-Contract

Gigantic Verizon logo on the back? Check. Completely unnecessary Verizon logo on the front? Double check. That's the HTC One Remix, which is essentially the One Mini 2, if Verizon followed any sort of rational naming convention. It's official now (for real this time), and it's coming July 24th for $99.99 with a new contract.
