AT&T picks up the obscure Galaxy A10e — a $210 Samsung budget phone

Last month, Samsung promised that more of its recent A-series phones would arrive in the US over the coming weeks. Following Verizon picking up the A50, another one is here: The Galaxy A10e has surreptitiously arrived at AT&T's digital storefront for $210 outright or $7 a month, bringing a notched 5.83" 720p display, 8-core Exynos SoC, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery.

AT&T starts blocking robocalls automatically, no opt-in required

Robocalls are a problem almost everyone in the US can relate to, and the fact that carriers weren't allowed to block suspected spam calls without the explicit opt-in from customers for a long time hasn't exactly improved the issue. An FCC ruling in June changed legislation around that, and AT&T was quick to act on it. The company is now automatically blocking calls it suspects as spam or fraud.

[Update: Verizon, too] Samsung's 'Night' photo mode finally coming to the US, starting with the AT&T Galaxy S10+

Samsung's new "Night" photo setting is rumored to finally compete with Google's excellent Night Sight, but there's just one hitch: When the feature first rolled out, it was limited to Exynos-powered Galaxy S10s, which aren't available in the US. However, the folks at XDA Developers have spotted the feature as live on the most recent AT&T and Verizon update for the Galaxy S10+.

Motorola cancels Android 9 Pie update for Z2 Force on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T

Motorola said last year that it would update The Moto Z2 Force to Android Pie, along with a raft of newer phones. The Z2 Force was the last flagship phone from the company to launch on all major carriers, but Motorola isn't updating most of those. A Moto rep has now confirmed that it will only release Pie for the Verizon edition because it needs Pie for 5G Moto Mod support. Everyone else is out of luck.

AT&T faces lawsuit over bogus ‘administrative fee’ hiding in its service plans

AT&T recently made the headlines for some misleading business concerning its 5G network — in essence, it added a 5GE indicator on devices that don't actually support 5G. Even a lawsuit from Sprint couldn't stop the company. Now, another complaint is on its way to the carrier, this time from its customers. They are accusing AT&T of charging a monthly $1.99 "bogus Administrative Fee" that it doesn't properly disclose in its rates.

AT&T crowned fastest LTE network in PCMag's 2019 tests

We've all rightly mocked AT&T for its ridiculous "5GE" branding, but the network improvements under that poorly named umbrella are having a real impact. According to PCMag's new mobile network tests, AT&T has surpassed Verizon to become the fastest network in the US. This is the first time AT&T has won in six years, which was way back in the early days of LTE.

AT&T LG V35 ThinQ now receiving Android Pie update

LG's V-series lineup has become quite convoluted in recent years, with the V30, V30S, V35, V40, and V50 all having been released in the span of 1.5 years. The AT&T V40 received its Pie update about a week ago, and it's now the slightly older V35's turn.

AT&T just launched the Galaxy S10 5G — but you probably can't buy it

It's easy to forget, but AT&T has technically had a 5G network since late last year. It just won't let almost anyone use it. That trend continues with the carrier's latest phone launch. The Galaxy S10 5G will go on sale June 17th, but only businesses and developers can buy it.

Slowly but surely, HMD Global has been working to get its Nokia-branded Android phones into the stores of US carriers. The Nokia 3.1 Plus for Cricket was the first example, and now HMD is producing two new devices set for carrier sale the Nokia 3.1 A for AT&T Prepaid, and the 3.1 C for Cricket Wireless.

AT&T starts open enrollment on phone insurance plans for prepaid customers

If you break phones the same way you breathe air — as in you do it very often — having an insurance plan for your device might make sense to you. Manufacturers might offer policies, though most customers will go to their carriers... well, postpaid customers anyways. Prepaid customers haven't had much of an option in that aspect until when AT&T, with its partner Asurion, began offering its Mobile Protection plan back in April. This month, the carrier is working on boosting customer buy-in by offering open enrollment.
