AT&T has released its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2013. The final three months of the year were good to AT&T in terms of smartphone sales and customers, but not as good as it has been in years past.
The Android monopoly on the Isis mobile payments system ended today with AT&T's announcement that it is now selling a specially made case for the iPhone that can make payments at NFC-enabled sales terminals.
AT&T has announced a surprise upgrade plan that will get customers out of their existing wireless contract in order to allow them to upgrade to a new phone and sign up for their AT&T Next program. Why is AT&T being so generous?
AT&T has announced that it will be the exclusive carrier of the Asus Padfone X, marking the first time that the Android smartphone-tablet convertible will be officially sold through the carrier in the US. It will also be the first 4G LTE Advanced device from the carrier.
AT&T has a bold but unnerving new program that will offer consumers a chance to consume more data without having to worry about going over their monthly data allowance. How? By having the people who make the content you download foot the bill.
AT&T has reached an agreement with EE that will allow AT&T's US customers to have access to 4G service when traveling in the UK. The agreement will allow customers to have access to EE's 4G network provided that their phones are compatible. Differences in spectrum between the networks mean only certain models will be able to take advantage of the faster speeds, but it will allow customers to roam abroad. The agreement still has many questions left to answer, including how much more customers will have to pay when roaming and when EE customers will be able to roam on AT&T's network, something EE declined to mention.
Following in the footsteps of fourth-place T-Mobile, AT&T has announced that it will increase monthly data limits and lower the price of monthly charges for customers who buy a phone without subsidies.
AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have announced that they will cease charging subscribers for premium texting services, most of which are nothing more than spam that tricks users into paying highly monthly fees for unwanted messages.
Sprint is the third-largest carrier in the United States; however, when it comes to the satisfaction levels of those millions of subscribers, the Now Network is rated as the worst carrier in the country, according to Consumer Reports.
Isis, the mobile payment joint-venture by three of the largest carriers in the United States, has officially gone nationwide today. After several delays and a lengthy testing phase in only two markets, consumers can now pay for items with their smartphones at thousands of locations throughout the US.
