Moto G 2015: latest leak details packaging and specs

It is anticipated Motorola will be officially introducing the third-generation model of its Moto G smartphone tomorrow, but the odds are high we won't be surprised by what we hear.

T-Mobile wants to change that — or maybe just add another bragging right to its list — and as such has announced that it is the first wireless carrier in the United States to offer texting built on Rich Communications Services, RCS, and it is calling the feature “Advanced Messaging”.

Moto G 3rd gen listed early: 2GB RAM, 1080p, and LTE detailed

Motorola is, you may have noticed, having trouble keeping it third-generation budget smartphone under wraps. The company has an event coming next week and it is expected the next-gen Moto G will be unveiled during it, but ample leaks — messy as they are — have offered numerous glimpses at the model.

Android M will have visual voicemail feature

If you've used Google Voice at any point, you're aware of how wonderful voicemail could be. The controls make it a lot easier to handle voicemails than dialing in and using the dial pad to toggle between messages. Odds are you've accidentally deleted a message you wanted to archive at least once. Android M, the yet-unnamed version of Android that currently sits as a developer preview, will be bringing that kind of voicemail control, eliminating the need for third-party apps, it has been revealed.

Republic Wireless upsets subscribers with new data plans

Republic Wireless upsets subscribers with new data plans

Republic Wireless has decided it was time to do away with unlimited data, and instead go with a new refund-based data setup where users buy the amount of data they think they need and then either pay more if they go over or get a refund for unused data at the end of the month.
