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.

LG G8 ThinQ Android 10 rollout continues as Verizon update follows Sprint (Update)

LG's tendency to update its devices incredibly slowly has become something of a running gag in the tech community, especially after the company unveiled a 'Software Upgrade Center' last year that didn't change matters much.

Grab a Pixel 4 fabric case from Verizon for just $20 (half off)

The Pixel 4: our readers' choice for smartphone of the year and, for its many faults, a phone that comes with all the support you can get from Google.

Verizon's Nokia 2 V gets Android 9 Pie, five months after unlocked model

In January of this year, HMD Global partnered with Verizon to create the Nokia 2 V. It's more or less a Nokia 2.1 with Verizon branding. The updates are also handled by the carrier, which might explain why Android Pie is rolling out to the phone five months after the regular Nokia 2.1 got it.

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.

Verizon launches RCS profile with support for Galaxy S9, S9+

The state of RCS messaging in the United States is a little bleak at the moment. Sure, it's got a massive character limit that puts SMS to shame, more multimedia options than MMS, and read receipts, but availability is inconsistent and the resources it takes to set up servers are not small. Verizon had planned on bringing on its RCS profile by "early 2019," and, if you consider "before July 1" early enough for you,  it has succeeded in delivering it to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+.
