AT&T is scaring customers into buying new phones with a misleading email

AT&T is scaring customers into buying new phones with a misleading email

Amid an economy-crushing pandemic, AT&T decided that now was a good time to send a scaremongering email to many of its customers, claiming that their phone "is not compatible with the new network and you need to replace it to continue receiving service." The email conveniently omits that this message is regarding a change that won't take place until February 2022, providing only a link that later calls out this change linked to the decommissioning of AT&T's legacy 3G network.

More AT&T plans are getting 5G, together with 40 more markets

Following yesterday's snafu, AT&T has taken today to announce "nationwide availability" for its 5G network, which covers around 63% of the US population thanks to the addition of 40 new markets. Celebrating this slightly arbitrary milestone, the company is bringing 5G access to all of its current "Unlimited" plans starting August 7th. Cricket customers will also get access to 5G on August 21st.

No, your phone is not going to stop working on AT&T soon — here's what you need to know

No, your phone is not going to stop working on AT&T soon — here's what you need to know

This week, AT&T began sending out an email that (rather misleadingly) told a large number of its subscribers that their phones would stop working on the network soon, and that they needed to upgrade. Straight up: this email is mostly BS. It's authentic, and AT&T sent it, but the action they're recommending you take — namely, buying a new phone — is not something you need to do for at least another 18 months, if not longer or potentially at all. Here's what you need to know.

Every 5G city and region for every major carrier in the US (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint)

Every 5G city and region for every major carrier in the US (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint)

As we settle into mid-2020, 5G has soundly made its presence felt in markets stretching all across the US. What started off as extremely patchy deployment has been getting better, fast, as carriers both bring 5G support to new regions and switch on new frequencies to improve the quality of coverage. But the rapidly changing shape of the 5G landscape has also made it really annoying to keep of what kind of connectivity you can expect from what carriers, where. That's why we're taking a look at the availability of 5G in the US: where it is now, where it's coming next, and how to get it.

Verizon caught lying about its 5G coverage in ads

Verizon caught lying about its 5G coverage in ads

Verizon has agreed to pull advertisements that falsely imply its tiny 5G network is available nationwide. Two TV ads have been criticized by the National Advertising Division (NAD) of the BBB National Programs, the non-profit focused on industry-self regulation. The commercials in question were challenged by AT&T, which hasn't always been honest about 5G itself, advertising its "5Ge" network that's nothing but plain ol' 4G.
