UK regulator to ban carriers from selling locked phones

UK regulator to ban carriers from selling locked phones

When a mobile network sells you a phone with a costly contract, it makes sure that switching providers won't be easy. Handsets have traditionally been locked to the carrier who sold it, and you have to jump through hoops to get it unlocked. From December next year, this practice will no longer be permitted in the UK as regulator Ofcom is banning the sale of locked phones by network operators.

Three UK Shows Off The LG Spirit 4G, Bringing The Company's Curved Design To The Mid-Range Segment

Three UK Shows Off The LG Spirit 4G, Bringing The Company's Curved Design To The Mid-Range Segment

Love it or hate it, the original LG G Flex sure did create some buzz. The second version of the phone appears to be an improvement in just about every way, but LG doesn't seem to be content with flagship-style offerings. Three UK just announced that it will carry the LG Spirit 4G starting in June. This decidedly mid-range device also has a curved screen, and... well, that's about the only interesting thing aside from Lollipop software at launch.

Before you get too excited, Three's promotional video (the sole source of information on the phone so far) doesn't mention flexibility at all, so this phone probably won't bend or heal like the G Flex series.

Owners Of The Unlocked HTC One M7 Plus O2 And Three Should Be Getting The Sense 6 OTA

Listen up, UK readers: if you're rocking an HTC One from 2013, and you got it from O2 or Three, check your notification bar for an update. According to this HTC support page, a fresh, steaming copy of Sense 6 is headed your way. The unlocked GSM model of the One M7 should also be getting the update. (Apparently the unlocked update is going out by country, since the US unlocked model was already updated.) Vodafone UK and EE users will have to wait.

Sony Xperia Z Up For Pre-Order On Three UK From £34 A Month On Contract, Available On February 28th

Sony Xperia Z Up For Pre-Order On Three UK From £34 A Month On Contract, Available On February 28th

Sony's waterproof and dustproof flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z, is available to pre-order in the UK today from Three, although you'll have to wait until it's released on February 28th to get your hands on it yourself.

We first saw the 5-inch, 1080p phone last month at CES, and found ourselves impressed by its minimalist, elegant design. Water resistance comes at a price though, so you can expect to pay at least £34 a month if you want to take the phone home on a contract.

Three is offering two tariffs for the Xperia Z with unlimited data: the £34 Ultimate Internet 500 plan, which gives you 500 minutes and 5000 texts, and the £36 One Plan, which gives you 2000 minutes and the same amount of texts.

Sony Xperia T Now Available On Three UK From £30 A Month, Pay As You Go Version Available For £399.99

Sony's new flagship smartphone, the Xperia T, which was announced at IFA last month, is now available to purchase in the UK from Three.

HTC One V Review: Can A Cheap Phone Really Be Cheerful?

HTC One V Review: Can A Cheap Phone Really Be Cheerful?

There are many cheap Android phones on the market today. Most of these devices will have a single core processor clocked at around 1GHz, and there won't be an awful lot of RAM to speak of either. This remains true of the HTC One V, but the latest budget phone to come out of the Taiwanese company has one key difference: it's running the latest version of Android.

That's right, you can finally own a budget device that doesn't ship with a version of Android that was released 2 years ago! Before you start celebrating too soon, though, you may want to take a look at some of the pros and cons that come with this phone and decide whether you want to take it on a 2-year contractual spin.

Three UK Rolls Out New "Essential" And "Ultimate" Plans, Promises Fear-Free Mobile Internet

Three UK Rolls Out New "Essential" And "Ultimate" Plans, Promises Fear-Free Mobile Internet

Three UK, the mobile network provider in Britain popular for its unlimited data plans without fair usage policies, has rolled out two new plans for their smartphone customers today which promise fear-free mobile internet.

The first plan, Essential, starts at £15 and provides customers with a choice of 100, 300 or 500 minutes per month as well as a 250MB data allowance. The idea behind this tariff is to stop bill shock, as your data will be cut off automatically when you reach your monthly data quota. If you'd like to purchase more data, you can choose to pay an additional £2 for a further 250MB or pay £5 extra for all-you-can-eat data for the rest of the month, which doesn't have any fair usage policies applied to it.

Earlier today, Engadget managed to get their hands on the Spring release schedule for UK carrier, Three. Along with some exciting, though previously known, products, such as the HTC Flyer, Desire S, ChaCha, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Xperia Play, and the Blackberry Playbook, we got our first peek at the Samsung Galaxy S II Mini.

While this device is the little brother of the Galaxy S II, the specs on this phone are anything but mini. With a 1.4GHz (potentially dual-core?) processor, 3.7" screen, Gingerbread at launch and HSPA+21 data connectivity, this handset seems to break the stigma that "mini" means "budget".
