Amazon kicks off Black Friday sales with cheap on-contract phones

Posted by wicked November - 24 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

amazon-logo-bannerAmazon is starting off their Black Friday deals with a ton of phones for a dollar or less on all three major carriers. These are obviously on-contract devices, but if you’re planning on starting up a new line of service or upgrading any lines, these are some pretty great deals. You can snag a Galaxy S 5 for just a dollar, or an LG G3 or HTC One M8 for a penny. Some of the deals vary depending on carrier and whether or not you’re going for a new account or upgrade, but the deals are worth looking through if you’re in the market.

The Fire Phone is still less than a buck, too. Maybe Black Friday will give it the shot in the arm that it needs. Amazon probably hopes so.

Nexus 6 for any carrier – is it real or is it marketing?

Posted by wicked November - 24 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

google_nexus_6_screen_trio

When Google introduced the Nexus 6 one of the features that was noteworthy was that the device came loaded with the chips necessary to support any of wireless network technologies used by all of the major U.S. carriers. In theory, this means any given Nexus 6 can be used on any of these networks instead of consumers having to purchase a unit built specifically for any given carrier. Unfortunately, it looks like the carriers are still creating some roadblocks to this concept becoming a reality.

The problem appears to be rooted with the CDMA carriers Sprint and Verizon. In order to get devices to work properly on their networks, Sprint and Verizon have to whitelist the IMEI numbers for all devices that are allowed to access their network. At this point it appears Verizon is only whitelisting devices purchased from Verizon or through Google Play even though the devices sold through other sources are the exact same model. This is similar to the issue some consumers had when Verizon refused to whitelist the IMEI numbers for Nexus 7 (2013) LTE tablets.

If a Verizon customer already has a line of service with an activated SIM card, they should be able to take that and put it in a new Nexus 6 to get it working. If the Nexus 6 came from some source other than Verizon or Google Play, it will show up as a “Non-VZW Device” in Verizon’s system until consumers take the time to visit a store or call customer care. If a customer is setting up a new line of service though, they will need to get the IMEI number from a valid Verizon device, submit that to Verizon’s online account creation site as a “Bring My Own Device” smartphone, then wait for a new SIM card to be delivered.

For Sprint customers, it appears things may be looking up. Initially it appeared Sprint was also blocking Nexus 6 devices with IMEI numbers outside of those purchased through Sprint or Google Play. The good news is that it looks like Motorola has been working with Sprint and they have now announced that all Nexus 6 devices will work with Sprint.

The idea of a device being universally capable of running on any network is closer to being a reality. Motorola has done their part by including the necessary hardware in the device. The major U.S. carriers, notably Verizon, still need to step up and do their part to retire old systems that block the ability of customers to use their hardware on the carrier of their choice.

AT&T’s Nexus 6 is SIM locked and features carrier’s ringtones

Posted by wicked November - 21 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

google_nexus_6_screen_trioIf you were considering picking up an AT&T subsidized Nexus 6, you might interested in seeing just how much the carrier has altered the device. Fortunately, most things are intact, including the stock ROM that ships with the other versions of the phone. There are a few small differences, however.

Most importantly, AT&T has SIM locked the device. This means you won’t be able to use the phone on any other carrier without paying off the device and getting AT&T to unlock it. That’s much different than the unlocked nature of the version of the device that you get directly from Google, but the bootloader is still easily unlocked, so that’s an excellent sign.

That’s not the only change, however. AT&T has also included their traditional set of ringtones that you’ll find on most of their other carrier branded devices. These are placed in the phone’s OEM partition, so they won’t disappear even if you flash another ROM. Still, a few ringtones shouldn’t be a deal breaker for most users.

Do these small alterations put you off from buying a Nexus 6 with an AT&T subsidy, or are you okay with the differences for a cheaper up front cost?

Verizon adds two LG tablets to portfolio for the holiday shopping season

Posted by wicked November - 21 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

verizon_lg_g_pads

Verizon announced today that they are adding two LG tablets to the portfolio of devices that customers can choose from this holiday season. Joining the 8.3-inch LG G Pad will be the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE and the LG G Pad 10.1 LTE. These new tablets will give buyers a good choice of sizes to meet their needs.

Both of the new LG G Pad models come with HD IPS displays running at 1280 x 800 resolution. They will be running Android KitKat using 1.2 GHz quad-core processors and 1GB of RAM. Other than size, the biggest difference is in the battery with the 10.1-inch version getting an 8,000mAh battery while the smaller 7-inch version gets a 4,000mAh battery.

The tablets are not going to win any spec battles with some of the newer tablets on the market. If you are willing to forego top-tier specs, Verizon is offering the tablets with some special pricing. The LG G Pad 7.0 LTE can be purchased for $49.99 with a two-year contract or $249.99 full retail. Meanwhile, the LG G Pad 10.1 LTE will sell for $299.99 retail or $199.99 with a two-year contract. The LTE capable tablets can be added to a MORE Everything account for an extra $10 per month fee.

Verizon indicates they will be holding a special “Connection Day” on Wednesday, Nov. 26th. If buyers are on a MORE Everything plan and register for the event, they will get an extra 1GB of data on both their current billing cycle and the next billing cycle. Verizon is also providing special offers from Amazon, Apple, Boingo Wireless, Condé Nast, Gogo, JetBlue and Pandora.
