Ting isn't dropping T-Mobile GSM support after all

Ting isn't dropping T-Mobile GSM support after all

Ting is a massively popular MNVO carrier, where customers are billed only for the calls, texts, and data they actually use — similar to Google Fi and Xfinity Mobile. The carrier offers both GSM and CDMA SIM cards, but Ting said last year that its GSM option would go away. Thankfully, Ting has reversed course, and its customers won't lose access to any networks.

Your carrier will let basically any competent criminal hijack your phone number

Your carrier will let basically any competent criminal hijack your phone number

One of the key pieces to our digital identities, whether we like it or not, is our mobile phone number. You likely use it one way or another in a two-factor authentication login (you shouldn't). Thing is, as it's been demonstrated quite a few times, they can be easily hijacked in a few easy steps by malicious actors ringing up carriers' customer service representatives — many of whom are all too understanding in helping users out of what's supposedly a stressful situation. So, just how easy is it to steal someone's phone number on a prepaid network? Researchers at Princeton University say extremely so in a recently published whitepaper draft.

OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren review: Trading battery life for an extra G

OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren review: Trading battery life for an extra G

OnePlus came out of nowhere barely five years ago, offering a compellingly cheap flagship phone with... questionable marketing. OnePlus has grown up a lot over the years, and it's no longer reliant on unlocked phone purchases. Not only has OnePlus partnered with carriers over the past year, it has produced some of the first 5G phones in the US market. The new OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren has a mouthful of a name, but it's probably the first 5G phone that's even worth your consideration.

The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G is the first 5G phone I actually want to buy

The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G is the first 5G phone I actually want to buy

My time with the OnePlus 7T Pro (deep breath) McLaren 5G has been relatively short, but also pretty dang informative. And my opinion on it has, as a result, formed about as rapidly as the supercars which share its namesake get to triple-digit speeds. It's no secret that the OnePlus 7 Pro is a favorite among the staff here at Android Police, and the 7T Pro is really just a tweaked and tuned variant of that phone. The McLaren edition simply maxes out the RAM and storage configuration and adds 5G.

Is $900 a lot of money for a OnePlus phone?
