With the T-Mobile UNcarrier pricing list and details revealed one day early, the 4th-largest carrier in the country may very well be showing off not the plan, but the devices that'll attach to the plan at their big event!

Several FCC listings and the tease of several machines is what we've got right now.

AT&T LG Optimus G Pro tipped in FCC post

This week the LG Optimus G Pro appears to have popped its head up with AT&T 4G LTE in mind as the FCC approves with a resounding thumbs up. What we're seeing here is an FCC approval process posting with what's said to be the code-name for the LG Optimus G Pro, just a few characters away from the original Optimus G. This device, if indeed coming to AT&T this Spring, will be a competitor for the also-giant Samsung Galaxy Note II (and possibly III) the whole year long.

T-Mobile 4G LTE event planned for March 26th

Invites have been sent for a March T-Mobile event that will undoubtedly unleash a pack of information surrounding not only their upcoming 4G LTE network launch, but a set of exciting new services as well.

Earlier today it was also confirmed that T-Mobile-carried Galaxy Note II devices will be updated with 4G LTE connectivity availability this week.

It looks as if T-Mobile will finally be launching its long-awaited 4G LTE network very soon. The carrier has confirmed plans to launch 4G LTE in the US by the end of this month, which means that they have just under two weeks to flip the switch. However, they shouldn't be in any big rush, since all the other major carriers are already rocking their own LTE networks.

Verizon backtracks on HTC One refusal

Verizon backtracks on HTC One refusal

This week it appears that Verizon has joined the HTC One party with no less than a full release coming on just after the rest of the major carriers in the USA. The big deal here (we've confirmed with a person close to the situation) is that Verizon will be releasing the HTC One AS the HTC One. Unlike previous releases with HTC where the product's name is changed to fit with a Verizon-specific brand (DROID DNA, for example), the HTC One will be released "as is."
