T-Mobile’s new promo lets customers send gifts to AT&T, Verizon subscribers

UC Next, Las Vegas, USA - 05 Jan 2017

Last summer, T-Mobile introduced a new rewards program called T-Mobile Tuesdays. Every Tuesday, T-Mobile subscribers are able to take advantage of a new offer, from free pizzas to free Lyft rides. But next week is different. Next Tuesday, T-Mobile users will not only receive two free FandangoNOW movie rentals, two gas discounts from Shell and a free $15 Lyft ride — they'll also be able to give those rewards away.

After Verizon acquires Yahoo, ‘Altaba’ will be left behind

Verizon Yahoo Purchase Altaba

Yahoo was hit with two major security breaches in recent years that affected well over 1 billion user accounts. The company only discovered and admitted they happened in the second half of 2016, months after Verizon announced it was looking to purchase Yahoo in a deal worth almost $5 billion. On top of that, it was revealed that Yahoo helped the US government in a massive spying operation that allowed it to search everyone’s email for specific terrorism-related content.

Reports following the hacks indicated the Verizon deal might be in danger, as Verizon investigated the financial impact of the security breaches. But the deal is still going forward, a SEC filing reveals. And Yahoo isn’t going away for good.

Verizon refuses to disable dangerous Galaxy Note 7 devices because it’s inconvenient

Galaxy Note 7 Recall

Earlier today, Samsung announced that it will disable all remaining Galaxy Note 7 devices via a software update, to be rolled out on December 19th. The company sees the update as vital for consumer protection, to make sure that no one continues using the potentially flammable devices.

But Verizon, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that the threat of fire is secondary to being stuck without a phone, and won't be pushing the software update to its customers.

New Verizon plan provides unlimited data if you’re willing to pay for it by the hour

Verizon Unlimited Data
The holy grail of any carrier plan is unlimited data. Especially in today's day and age where one can reasonably spend hours upon hours streaming HD video, it's remarkably easy for even the most prudent smartphone user to go over his or her allotted data. Of course, the carriers themselves welcome this because there's a lot of money to be made with overage charges. As we reported just a few days ago, AT&T and Verizon, in 2016 alone, have already generated upwards of $600 million in revenue on overage charges alone. Without question, the trend today is moving towards unlimited data, a selling point that Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T all now get behind, albeit with some qualifications. Nonetheless, the lone outlier with respect to unlimited data remains Verizon.

Verizon and AT&T have already made $600 million from overage fees this year

Smartphone Plans
According to a new study from Nerdwallet, U.S.-based telecos are still making bank on smartphone overage fees. Over the past few years, data plans have undoubtedly become more user-friendly with respect to the amount of data offered. However, because we use our smartphones for more data-intensive activities than ever before -- such as streaming Netflix for hours on end -- many users are still finding themselves penalized for going over.

Verizon: blame networks, not cable companies, for stupid cable prices

Verizon Skinny Bundles
The stupidly high (and still rising!) price of cable television is driving a mass migration to internet streaming. But according to the cable companies -- yep, those same companies that have been fined for deceptive billing, and that are instituting internet caps across the country -- it's the networks that you should blame. At least, that's what Verizon says.

Google is letting Verizon ruin its new Pixel phones

Google Pixel Phone Release Date
If you can get past the hardware design, which we'll politely call "an acquired taste," Google's new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are shaping up to be two of the hottest smartphones of the year. Google unveiled the new handsets earlier this week and from start to finish, they sound like a hardcore Android fan's dream. The phones pack cutting-edge specs, premium hardware, class-leading cameras, the latest and greatest Nougat software from Google, and so much more. You can read all about the new Pixel phones' 10 best features right here. Sadly, it's not all good news for Android fans. As Google tries to get its footing in the increasingly competitive US smartphone market, it may have made some deals with the devil that ruin the user experience for many people who end up buying the phones.
