Verizon Wireless network down in Midwest USA, no ETR for repair

Verizon Wireless network down in Midwest USA, no ETR for repair

For those of you experiencing difficulties with your Verizon data-laden products this afternoon, specifically with LTE devices such as the DROID RAZR or the BIONIC up in the Midwest part of the United States, Verizon has confirmed that they are working on the problem as we speak, though there appears to be no ETR (estimated time of resolution) at the moment. We've been hearing for a few hours now in some cases that users in and around Chicago, lower parts of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa are all experiencing troubles with their data on smartphones, tablets, and Wi-fi hotspots. If you are one of these people, please feel free to comment below and we'll forward the information to Verizon so the scope of the problem can be assessed.

Verizon Family Data plans coming 2012 says CEO

Verizon Family Data plans coming 2012 says CEO

Here at the end of 2011 it seems almost strange that this didn't happen already on multiple carriers: that family plans would spring up not just for calls and text, but for data as well - this is going to be a reality inside 2012 according to Verizon Communications CEO Lowell McAdam. This week at at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, McAdam noted that of course it makes sense for families with several screens to deal with, not wanting to pay for each of them on a different bill - Verizon not wanting to deal with that if they don't have to either. Verizon isn't the first to hint at such plans, but this is the closest we've gotten to confirmation that such plans will start rolling out on carriers across the USA inside the next few months.

Verizon denies blocking Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus, blames hardware

Verizon denies blocking Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus, blames hardware

Verizon has issued a statement today denying claims that it is intentionally blocking support for the Google Wallet mobile payment app on the upcoming Galaxy Nexus. The response comes after a Google spokesperson confirmed yesterday that Verizon's Galaxy Nexus would not support the company's NFC-based payment app, spurring rumors that rivalry from Verizon's own NFC payment system was in play.

Google confirms Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus won’t support Google Wallet

Google confirms Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus won’t support Google Wallet

So it's official, Google spokesperson just confirmed tonight that Verizon's Galaxy Nexus will not be supporting Google Wallet, along with those from other carriers, such as T-Mobile and AT&T (if they ever get the Nexus, that is). Same probably goes for all Android smartphones besides the Nexus S 4G for the currently foreseeable future. Well, that's not the most pleasant of news, especially for those who're already starting to utilize the NFC payment service offered by Google. What a bummer.

Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus to be priced at $299.99 on 2-year contract, reports WSJ

Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus to be priced at $299.99 on 2-year contract, reports WSJ

Following the newly released leaked shots today, the Wall Street Journal has just reported that Verizon's version of the Galaxy Nexus will be priced at $299.99 on a new 2-year contract, which sounds pretty archetypal alongside other Verizon offerings like the Motorola Droid RAZR and the HTC Rezound, both of which share the same price point. Unfortunately, what hasn't been confirmed is the actual release date, since the reports didn't get any more specific than "this month".

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

At this point we've got to assume that the folks at Verizon had all of this leak and pre-release panic planned for the Galaxy Nexus, because what we've been experiencing since the release of the international edition of this world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device is nothing but heartbreak and agony over the release date for the Verizon version here in the USA - that said, here's the in-store packaging. In what appears very much to replicate the packaging of the Nexus S, the hero device for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Verizon's package has padding inside the top of the box, a simple cradle of red for the device, and all the regular bits underneath. Could this be the sign we've been waiting for?

Verizon 4G LTE network turns one year old today

Verizon 4G LTE network turns one year old today

Though it seems like just yesterday that we were first unboxing the HTC ThunderBolt, the first smartphone to roll out on Verizon's still-impressive 4G LTE network here in the USA, it's been one year to the day that the network has been active. On the first day the network was officially deployed, it covered an already impressive 39 markets, this eclipsed at this one year marker by the current 190 markets the Verizon 4G LTE network sits in today. While the Verizon LTE network has been their "4G" offering since they originally started promoting the "4G" term, they mention the competition as being less prepared for the eventual oncoming of higher speed networks - sarcasm in tow, of course.

Galaxy Nexus Verizon apps disabling photographed, launch imminent

Galaxy Nexus Verizon apps disabling photographed, launch imminent

What we're looking at today is a few more photos from the wild of the Galaxy Nexus working out on Verizon's 4G LTE network, this time showing off how the two, count them, two Verizon apps on the device will be able to be disabled at will right out of the box. This is not a miraculous feature as it was made clear that we'd be able to disable apps back when Ice Cream Sandwich aka Android 4.0 was revealed in Hong Kong a few weeks ago, but it is neat to see that this feature remains available here in the Verizon Galaxy Nexus device. What this means is not that these apps will disappear from the phone entirely, just that they'll be effectively gone from your sight and your processes.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus release date Dec 11 tips Best Buy leak

Another day, another Verizon Galaxy Nexus release date rumor, and now Best Buy is tipped to be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich in stock on December 11. The retailer is expecting the LTE smartphone to hit its stockroom shelves in a little over a week's time, according to the screenshot Engadget's tipster sent in, though with no street date listed it's unclear when, exactly, the handset will actually be offered up for sale.
