AT&T looks to drones to improve its LTE service

AT&T looks to drones to improve its LTE service

Although a favorite among geeks, techies, and Pokemon Go players, drones aren't always welcome in all places and at all times. Some have even taken to shooting them from the sky, if a bird of prey doesn't get to it first, that is. Undaunted by that mixed perception of such flying robots, AT&T is still looking to the skies. The carrier has revealed ongoing work to use drones to improve its LTE coverage, especially in densely packed areas and events as well as aid it in the maintenance of its infrastructure.

AT&T BlackBerry PRIV finally gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow

AT&T BlackBerry PRIV finally gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Back in April, BlackBerry, who tries really hard to always be up to date with the latest in Android, finally released an update that brings Android 6.0 Marshmallow to its one and so far only Android smartphone, the BlackBerry PRIV. That said, it also mentioned that carriers themselves will only be rolling out the update starting May 3rd. Unsurprisingly, few actually followed that schedule. Now two months later, AT&T is finally making that promise real by rolling out Marshmallow and all the goodies BlackBerry included in that update.

AT&T Wi-Fi calling on Android continues rally away from cellular

The end of cellular phone call service is coming. AT&T's Wi-Fi calling and text messaging is the next step towards that goal. While it may not be the intent of mobile device carriers to move completely away from cellular service, that is indeed the trend. AT&T's latest move is to enable Wi-Fi Calling on "select Android devices" - for now that includes the LG G4 and a variety of iPhone devices only.

The Galaxy S7 Active’s one key feature (it’s not just rugged)

The Galaxy S7 Active’s one key feature (it’s not just rugged)

Today we're having a peek at the differences between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Spoiler alert - there aren't many of them. The big differences lie in the look of the casing for the devices, the ruggedness therein, and the battery. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Active model has a battery that's so extremely large, it'd be difficult to use it all up in a single day. Really difficult. Tablet battery-sized difficult.

Data Caps are coming, here’s what you need to know

Data Caps are coming, here’s what you need to know

Remember when you had to pay for the number of text messages that you were allowed to send and receive each month? It seemed pretty absurd at the time, especially when you consider just how little data is actually transmitted for each message. But the price wasn't there to offset the cost of transmitting each text message. Instead it was used as a way for the phone companies to earn additional revenue while driving down the cost of their most basic plans.

AT&T’s simplified device plans ask: lower payments or faster upgrades?

AT&T’s simplified device plans ask: lower payments or faster upgrades?

AT&T has tweaked its installment device payment options, narrowing them down into two plans that ask consumers a question: do you want lower monthly payments or the ability to upgrade your phone more quickly? If you answer the latter, you’ll choose the A&T Next Every Year plan starting June 9, whereas everyone else will get the cheaper AT&T Next installment plan. This reduces the previous options from four down to a less confusing two.
