AT&T quietly enables Cascade-like single ID with Gear S watch

Samsung's Gear S is spreading, with AT&T confirming its launch plans and pricing for the 3G-enabled smartwatch. The curved AMOLED wristband will hit AT&T shelves on November 7th, AT&T said today, priced at $199.99. Unlike T-Mobile USA, however, which announced a new, wearable-specific data tariff for the Gear S earlier today, AT&T is taking a different approach, and going some way to addressing how users are contactable when they're carrying multiple devices each with their own network identity.

FTC sues AT&T over throttling of unlimited plans

FTC sues AT&T over throttling of unlimited plans

Data throttling is nothing to overlook, especially for consumers. The FTC and FCC aren’t overlooking it either, with Verizon having fallen under their watchful gaze earlier this year. Now, the FTC has formally sued AT&T, claiming they deceptively throttled customers data. According to the lawsuit, AT&T throttled at least 3.5 million unique customers over 25 million times. In some cases, the FTC says data transfer speed was throttled by up to 90%! Even more concerning is that these throttling issues affect those on AT&T unlimited plans.

AT&T’s Apple SIM lock-down undermines iPad LTE flexibility

AT&T’s Apple SIM lock-down undermines iPad LTE flexibility

Apple may be trying to further squeeze out the carriers with Apple SIM, its solution to allowing travelers the easiest access to iPad data plans on local networks, but that doesn't mean the carriers themselves are going to make it easy. While AT&T and others may be participating with Apple's multi-carrier SIM scheme, once they've got customers signed up they may not let them switch away as readily as the Cupertino firm envisaged. Indeed, AT&T has confirmed to SlashGear that if you initially pick its network, there's no going elsewhere on the same SIM.

Kindle Fire HDX 7 lands on AT&T to help Fire Phone sales

You may have heard that Amazon is entering a trying financial period, and that its first ever smartphone isn't helping its cause. Some are pinning the Fire Phone's failure on its exclusive availability to AT&T but now the carrier seems to be trying to make up for lost time, sales, and pride. It is announcing the arrival of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX, the 7-inch kind, and although you can buy it on its own, AT&T will give you a slightly sweeter deal if you purchase it with the Fire Phone.

Galaxy S5 Plus revealed, but why?

Galaxy S5 Plus revealed, but why?

Just as Samsung revealed a late-season upgrade to their Galaxy S4 with the "LTE-A" model last year, this year’s Galaxy S5 Plus has arrived. Here in 2014, this means an upgrade past the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 to a higher-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with 2.5GHz clock speed, Krait 450 CPUs, and Adreno 420 GPUs. What’s all that mean to the lay person? It means it can process better, harder, faster, stronger. This device also works with LTE Cat. 6 instead of Cat. 4, meaning you can go faster once again - supposing you've got LTE Cat. 6 in your area, that is to say.

AT&T scores PadFone X mini exclusive, available Oct 24

Fulfilling a promise it made, ASUS is bringing yet another of its PadFone smartphone/tablet hybrids to the US market. And just like with its namesake, the PadFone X, it is again arriving exclusively to AT&T. The PadFone X mini offers that same flexibility of a 2-in-1 device, this time in a smaller and more handy size, without losing the advantages of AT&T's 4G LTE network. Of course, it is considerably less equipped than its older and bigger sibling, but the rather low no contract price does make up for it.

AT&T expands gigabit Internet service to four regions

Back in April, AT&T revealed that it was looking at a bunch of locations to which it might expand its gigabit Internet service.
