At this point, entry-level Android phones are a dime a dozen. Or, if you play your cards right, free on a 2-year contract. For those uninteresting in paying $200+ for a superphone, LG has introduced the Lucid2. It's a VZW exclusive, and will be available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores in the coming weeks...

It happened. It finally happened. Apple's iPhone has arrived on the last major carrier in the "Big 4" discussion. Well over a year after Sprint finally joined AT&T (first) and Verizon (second) in the march to have the iPhone within one's phone portfolio, T-Mobile announced today in New York City that one of the biggest voids in its lineup...

A new streaming movie service is in town: Redbox. That’s right, Coinstar, the company behind those red movie boxes in front of pharmacies everywhere, has teamed up with Verizon to create an online movie streaming service.

We've all seen the reports that show the U.S. lagging behind quite a few other nations in terms of national average broadband speed (we're looking at you, South Korea), but the FCC now has a report out that details the best and the brightest available to American citizens. Of course, most people aren't able to look at... Read more...
For the fourth consecutive reporting period, J.D. Power and Associates awarded Verizon Wireless top honors in wireless customer care satisfaction among full-service carriers.

In what is already a hotly contested issue that will no doubt end in a high stakes showdown, the FCC and its chairman Julius Genachowski (pictured), is proposing a large-scale, free public WiFi network that would be more powerful than current home and office WiFi networks, according to the Washington Post. Essentially, these WiFi networks... Read more...
Well, well -- looks like those whole "prepaid" thing may not just be for the second-tier carriers any longer. This week, Verizon Wireless announced that it too would be joining the prepaid ranks, which is fairly monumental on a couple of levels. First and foremost, the majority of prepaid options in America rely on... Read more...

It's easy to see why T-Mobile USA appointed John Legere as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of its business unit back in September of last year. He's a charismatic dude, and if T-Mobile didn't snag him, Comedy Central might have. That's the impression you get after listening to him lambast AT&T and other wireless competitors. Legere didn't...

We've known Verizon and Coinstar were teaming up to offer a streaming and physical media service similar to Netflix.

It's a patent that sounds like a plot description for a science-fiction movie or the result of Apple's Siri and Google's AdSense mating. With it, Verizon could program its set-top boxes to survey a room to determine relevant ads to display either on your television or mobile phone. Sound a bit scary? It kind of is... Read more...
Good news for Samsung Galaxy S III owners riding AT&T's wireless waves. An official Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update is now available for your device, beating both Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular to the punch (in the U.S.), though not T-Mobile, which has been doling out Jelly Bean for a few weeks. This is not an over-the-air (OTA) update,... Read more...
Back in February, we heard tell that Verizon was teaming up with Coinstar (maker of those Redbox DVD rental kiosks you see everywhere) to develop a streaming and physical media service not unlike Netflix. Now, it appears that the service--dubbed “Redbox Instant by Verizon”--is in the offing. GigaOM... Read more...
