On Wednesday, a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report revealed that bigwig US wireless carrier AT&T and its smaller rival T-Mobile are mulling the prospects of making bids for a chunk of A-block spectrum licenses held by Verizon Wireless.
Three bigwig US wireless carriers - AT&T, Sprint, and Mobile - have agreed to discontinue the practice of charging their customers for commercial Premium Short Messaging Services, the so-called PSMS service. However, the fourth of the Big Four carriers, Verizon, is not stopping the PSMS practice as yet because it still is in the process of winding down the service.
AT&T said in a Monday announcement that it has updated its U-verse applications for iPhone and iPad. The updated apps will give the users the advantage of live television streaming to their iOS devices, both inside and outside their home.
In a recent announcement, bigwig US carrier AT&T has revealed that it will start taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch from Tuesday, September 17; while smaller rival T-Mobile will open the Galaxy Gear smartwatch for pre-orders on Wednesday, September 18.
In an announcement which underscores the availability of a 4G LTE tablet at the lowest price thus far, bigwig US carrier AT&T has revealed that it is offering the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for $200 with a two-year contract; or $100 with a two-year contract, if bundled with a Samsung Galaxy S4 handset, a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active handset, or a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phablet.
In a Friday filed lawsuit in a Texas district court, T-Mobile has accused AT&T prepaid subsidiary Aio Wireless of trademark infringement and unfair business practices; with the allegations chiefly targeted at the magenta logo of the pre-paid carrier.
