Sprint LG V20 now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

2016's LG V20 was basically the last flagship to ship with a removable battery, so it's no surprise that plenty of people are still using it. Its Android 8.0 Oreo update started rolling out in South Korea last week, and it's now hitting the Sprint model here in the States.

Sprint announces new unlimited plans with even more limits than you thought possible

I think we can all agree at this point that the term "unlimited" has become utterly meaningless in the context of phone plans. Most unlimited plans include at least a few odd limits, but Sprint's latest offerings are really impressive in how many limits they apply to "unlimited" service. The old Unlimited Freedom plan will soon be replaced by Unlimited Basic and Unlimited Plus.

Phone tracking firms LocationSmart and Securus under fire for data breaches

Securus Technologies is a Texas-based company, specializing in providing and monitoring calls to prison inmates. Securus came into the spotlight earlier this month, when a former Missouri sheriff was found using the company's service to repeatedly track people without a warrant. The New York Times reports that between 2014 and 2017, former sheriff Cory Hutcheson used the service at least 11 times, allegedly tracking a judge and members of the State Highway Patrol.

Securus obtains tracking information through a company called LocationSmart, which in turn has agreements with most U.S. carriers. Earlier this month, Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon wrote a letter to various carriers asking them to independently verify that these requests are made lawfully.

[Update: It's now official] Sprint will announce an Unlimited 55+ plan on May 18 to compete with T-Mobile, offers 2 lines for $70

Sprint's offering is better than a regular plan, and it now matches T-Mobile's pricing, even though T-Mobile initially offered two lines for just $60.
