Verizon’s new phone insurance might be better than AppleCare

Verizon insurance vs AppleCare

Insurance plans offered by carriers are, by and large, a waste of money. Generally, you end up paying too much for a plan that still has a high deductible, and which will leave you waiting weeks just to have your phone replaced with a banged-up refurbished model.

Now, I'd still say that you should take any insurance plan with a grain of salt, and take the time to wade through the small print for yourself, but Verizon's new insurance plan seems like it might be worth it.

The Apple Store doesn’t actually sell many iPhones

iPhone: Apple store vs Verizon

Much is made of Apple's retail arm. The company described it as its "biggest product" during the recent iPhone X launch, and it's initiated a revamp of its stores to turn them into cult-like "plazas" where fans gather to worship the latest technology.

But according to a new survey of US consumers, the vast majority of iPhones and iPads are purchased somewhere other than Apple's hallowed halls of retail.

Verizon expects strong iPhone X demand this holiday season

iPhone X Release Date

The iPhone X sure is expensive, but that doesn’t mean that Apple won’t sell millions upon millions of units this year. Most reports say that Apple may meet its production goals for 2017 after all, although it’ll struggle to meet consumer demand well into 2018.

Verizon also said it expects strong iPhone X sales this quarter while confirming that iPhone 8 sales were not on par with what you’d expect from a new iPhone.

You can get your hands on the Google Pixel 2 starting tomorrow

Google Pixel 2 release date, best plans Verizon vs T-Mobile

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL won't be released until October 19th, but Verizon is going to tease you all the way until release date. Starting tomorrow, both new Pixels will be available for hands-on messing with in all Verizon corporate stores across the country, thanks to Verizon's exclusive deal with Google to distribute the Pixel 2.

Google is really working to make sure that consumers get a chance to go hands-on with the new devices. The company is opening two pop-up temporary stores, one in NYC and one in LA. Both stores will have Google's new Pixel, as well as the Pixel Buds and other hardware that Google released alongside the new phones.

Verizon’s prepaid family plans offer discounts for additional lines

Verizon prepaid family plans

Just four months after debuting its cheaper prepaid plans, Verizon has expanded upon the offering this week with the introduction of the Prepaid Family Account. The prepaid plans will stay the same, but going forward, customers will be able to add up to four additional lines to their prepaid accounts and receive a discount on every added line.

The prices of the prepaid family plans start the same as the individual plans: $40 for 3GB, $50 for 7GB, $60 for 10GB and $80 for unlimited data. But on a family plan, every line added will receive a discount. Lines 2 through 5 on a 3GB will get $10, dropping the price to $30, 7GB additional lines will get $15, and both 10GB and unlimited plans will pay $20 less per line, which amounts to a maximum savings of up to $80 for 5 lines on a unlimited plan.

T-Mobile’s trolling of Verizon just hit a new level

Google Pixel 2 T-Mobile vs Verizon

Google's new Pixel 2 is finally official, and just like last year, it's a Verizon exclusive. But boring things like exclusive distribution contracts aren't going to stop an opportunity for a good troll for T-Mobile. That's why it's offering a killer launch deal on the Pixel, despite not even selling the phone.

If you go out and buy a Pixel on your own dime and bring it to T-Mobile, the carrier will pay you half of the phone's cost upfront. There's a few terms and conditions attached, but here's the important part: T-Mobile has a way better offer than Verizon on the Pixel 2, a phone that's a Verizon exclusive and that T-Mobile doesn't even sell. That's some next-level trolling right there.

T-Mobile and Verizon take their argument over the ‘fastest’ network up a notch

T-Mobile vs Verizon: unlimited data truths

Ever since John Legere took over as CEO of T-Mobile five years ago, the relationship between the "Un-Carrier" and its big rivals has been less than cordial. Verizon and T-Mobile routinely run ads slagging their opponents' networks, picking on everything from extra fees to data throttling as a reason to switch.

But when T-Mobile put out an ad last year claiming that its LTE network was faster than Verizon, Big Red filed a complaint with the National Advertising Division. Months later, a ruling is here, and no one really won.

T-Mobile is finally getting its first 600MHz device next month

LG V30 T-Mobile, Verizon pre-orders vs Galaxy Note 8

T-Mobile is spending billions to roll out a new 600MHz network, which should finally close the coverage gap between T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T. That's not new -- the first 600MHz sites are already live -- but if you walk into a T-Mobile store right now, you can't buy a phone that will work on 600MHz.

That's all changing next month. The LG V30, T-Mobile's first 600MHz-capable phone and the most important device for the network in years, will be available for pre-order on October 5th, and lands in stores October 13th.

The iPhone X is way slower than this year’s best Android phones in one important way

iPhone X, iPhone 8 vs LG V30

The iPhone X is finally real, and in most visible ways, it smokes all the Android phones that have come out this year. But a dig through the spec sheet shows one disappointing thing: the wireless radio sucks, at least compared to the chip found inside this year's best Android phones.

Apple Watch Series 3 leak

If you happened to check the internet this past weekend, you were likely bombarded with Apple leaks -- specifically, leaks about the upcoming iPhone X, which was one of three new iPhone models discovered in the code of iOS 11. But Apple wasn't the only source of leaks this weekend, as one Reddit user discovered that the Verizon app had been updated to include the Apple Watch Series 3 on a device configuration screen.
