Over 1M iPhones on T-Mobile USA

Over 1M iPhones on T-Mobile USA

AT&T made its plans to gobble up T-Mobile public back in March. The deal will cost AT&T $39 billion. Sprint is not happy at all about the purchase deal and has been pushing the FCC to block the acquisition, though it seems unlikely that a block will happen. Most suspect that Sprint is simply trying to force some limits on the merged company to make its position stronger in the market. AT&T and Verizon are the only two carriers that official have the iPhone on their networks with Verizon only having the iPhone 4.

Free AT&T WiFi Coming to 20 New York City Parks this Summer

Free AT&T WiFi Coming to 20 New York City Parks this Summer

AT&T announced today that it will be adding free WiFi to 26 locations in 20 New York City parks. The free WiFi is available to all, AT&T customers and non-customers. The service rolled out to three parks today, with 23 additional parks to follow this summer. Nothing is cheaper than free, and it is hard to complain about quality of service when you are paying nothing out of pocket. Although free WiFi services have been talked about for years, free WiFi hotspots have yet to spread city-wide in the US.

Novatel Wireless Adds DLNA to the MiFi 2372

Novatel Wireless Adds DLNA to the MiFi 2372

We reviewed the AT&T MiFi 2372 back in January, but since then Novatel, the devices manufacturer, has recently updated the device’s software. DLNA streaming media support has been added to the MiFi 2372. The MiFi 2372 already functioned well as a mobile 3G or 4G hotspot, and sharing the microSDHC card helped set it apart from the competition. Adding DLNA support just sweetened the package.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up, April 27th 2011

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up, April 27th 2011

Good morning, or good afternoon to you all, depending on where you abide. It's been another busy morning at SlashGear, and we have lots of news to wrap up for you. Verizon's 4G LTE network is down nationwide, relegating those with a 4G hotspot or an HTC Thunderbolt to 1x speeds, but don't worry, there is a workaround. Also Sony defends its handling of the PSN hack, and the sluggish pace of getting information to customers. Acer comes out with not one but two 3D devices, and Nintendo lets us know that sales of its 3DS are "weaker than expected". After hearing that sales of the 3DS set records, we wonder if we can ever believe earnings reports. Much more news to wrap up, and A NEW GIVEAWAY after the cut.

Verizon, AT&T “pleased” with Xoom and Atrix sales

Verizon, AT&T “pleased” with Xoom and Atrix sales

We covered several analyst reports yesterday, saying that the Motorola Xoom and Atrix were sales failures. Not so, say Verizon and AT&T. Verizon issued a statement to Computerworld, stating "We are pleased with customer response to the Xoom." And AT&T issued a statement saying "Our customers are very satisfied with the Atrix, and we are equally as pleased with the results to date." Neither company has released sales figures. So what is the real story?

T-Mobile Talks to its Customers About Merger

T-Mobile Talks to its Customers About Merger

In a press release Friday, Jim Alling, T-Mobile Chief Operations Operator, answered some of the questions we'd seen posed by the community in the wake of the biggest news this week. In a press release sent to "Dear Valued T-Mobile Customers", Alling assuaged the fears and lauded the benefits of the merger. From a purely technical standpoint it's going to be a great move for the US wireless network, if everything goes well during the regulatory and review process over the next year, there's going to be a double-thick wireless network from the overlapping mesh of LTE towers all under AT&T's hand.

AT&T and Sprint May Divide the Spoils of T-Mobile

AT&T and Sprint May Divide the Spoils of T-Mobile

AT&T may have to make some major concessions in order to get FCC approval for its acquisition of T-Mobile, according to analysts at Citadel Securities, and Sprint may just be the beneficiary of those concessions. AT&T has already stated, in its Stock Purchase Agreement filed March 21, that it is ready to divest up to 40 percent of T-Mobile's subscribers. But AT&T may need to make even more significant concessions to get the deal done.

MetroPCS May be the Biggest Winner in AT&T/T-Mobile Deal

MetroPCS May be the Biggest Winner in AT&T/T-Mobile Deal

With T-Mobile soon to be swallowed up by AT&T (probably), MetroPCS will be the most likely choice for many T-Mobile customers looking for a new carrier. That would most likely make Metro PCS the nation's new fourth-largest wireless carrier, and that is why MetroPCS's stock jumped up 5% upon the merger announcement. MetroPCS currently has 8.1 million subscribers, up 35% over the last two years (a time period, we should mention, in which T-Mobile lost customers).

iPad 1 Price Drops at AT&T

iPad 1 Price Drops at AT&T

The iPad was already one of the most compelling tablets available. AT&T just sweetened the pot by dropping the price of their 3G capable models by another hundred bucks beyond what they already discounted. The company is offering the 64GB model with Wi-Fi and 3G support for $529, that's more than 30% off of the price at launch. The $529 price was being used for the 32GB model, but apparently AT&T doesn't mind losing a little off of their bottom line. The 16GB model is being offered for a $429. How long are these deals going to last? Not long, with the release of the successor, the supplies of the original are dwindling at best. If you were looking for an iPad with AT&T, now is the time to buy.

Personal Hotspots Coming from AT&T

Personal Hotspots Coming from AT&T

AT&T has confirmed that it will begin supporting the Personal Hotspot feature with the launch of iOS 4.3 on March 11. Users who have the $25 a month DataPro plan which allows for 2 GB of usage, plus the $20 a month tethering add-on will get the update automatically when the update pushes out on the 11th. Users with earlier versions of the iPhone will not be able to use the feature. Verizon's iPhone shipped with the feature, so AT&T has been quick to offer it as well.
