Samsung Pay brings mobile payments to Verizon

Samsung Pay brings mobile payments to Verizon

Roughly two weeks after the US carrier confirmed it, Verizon subscribers are now able to take advantage of Samsung Pay. This means Samsung's mobile payment system is now available on all of the US's major carriers, having already been available on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular since Samsung Pay first launched in September. Users with compatible Galaxy devices should now be able to download the Samsung Pay app from the Google Play store.

Shatterproof Droid Turbo 2, long-lasting Droid Maxx 2 leaked

It's still a good few days before Halloween and before Verizon reveals its latest exclusive collab with Motorola, but leaks have pretty much spilled all the beans about the Droid Turbo 2 and the Droid Maxx 2. Practically rebranded Moto X Style, known as the Pure Edition in the US, and Moto X Play smartphones, the two new Verizon Droids have unofficially appeared in leaked marketing materials, revealing how Verizon plans to market these devices and to make them stand apart from the competition in the already crowded smartphone market.

Halloween comes early for Verizon’s DROID release event

Halloween comes early for Verizon’s DROID release event

A spooky sort of invite has been sent by Verizon for an event that's sure to reveal the newest DROID devices from Motorola. This event will take place starting at 11AM Eastern Time on the 27th of October, and the invite suggests one of two things. Either we're going to get a device that's especially good at helping us with the TRICK part of our Trick or Treat shenanigans, or we're just being teased with shards of glass because this device will be especially sharp. We're guessing it's a Moto X of a different name, and though not particularly rugged, a device that's not going to break when you drop it from your pocket.

Verizon grandfathered unlimited data users face $20 price increase

Verizon grandfathered unlimited data users face $20 price increase

As most of the US's major wireless carriers have long stopped offering unlimited data plans, those companies must uphold the plan for users who entered contracts before they were discontinued, otherwise known as grandfathered users. Most of these carriers would certainly prefer these customers switch to one of their tiered plans, often trying to lure them with cheaper prices in exchange for low data caps, but it seem Verizon has another plan altogether: increase their bill by $20.

Verizon confirms Samsung Pay support is on the way

Verizon confirms Samsung Pay support is on the way

Good news for Samsung Galaxy S6 and Note 5 owners on Verizon frustrated by the carrier's lack of supporting Samsung Pay: those customers will soon be able to use the new mobile payment system. Unfortunately, Verizon didn't give any specific timeframe the feature will be available, instead simply posting on Twitter that Samsung Pay would be coming in a "future software update."

Verizon Supercookie refuses to die, gets help from AOL

Verizon Supercookie refuses to die, gets help from AOL

Perhaps "zombie cookie" is indeed a better name for Verizon's much criticized "supercookie" scheme. The major US carrier received a lot of heat early this year when it was revealed how it used "undeletable" cookies to track users' Internet comings and goings for the purpose of advertising. The furor has died down since Verizon allowed customers to opt out of this kind of tracking. But now it seems that Verizon is ready to earn the public's ire again, revealing that it will combine its users' advertising profile into AOL's ad network.

Sony Xperia Z4v isn’t coming to America, or anywhere else

Sony Xperia Z4v isn’t coming to America, or anywhere else

Last June, Verizon announced that a certain Sony Xperia Z4v smartphone would be landing on the country's shores sometime by August. That month has come and gone with no word, whisper, or even shadow of the strange beast. And now we know why. Updating its announcement, Verizon reveals that they are scrapping the Verizon-exclusive Sony smartphone completely. But that is probably for the best. Considering what the Xperia Z4v is based on, it might have done the carrier more harm than good if it pushed through.

go90 is Verizon’s tone-deaf attempt at a video app

Today Verizon Media revealed go90, a video app for iOS and Android devices. This app can be run on devices from any data network, but some content may be limited to Verizon Wireless customers. The app's presentation begins with a sign-in/sign-up screen after you've downloaded it, then presents a "free" multimedia experience that Verizon Media says is "thanks [to their] super cool ad partners!" Verizon Media also suggests that they've been "cooking it up" in their "Silicone Valley labs" for months.

Samsung Pay may land for Verizon users soon

Samsung's Will Graylin made a tweet recently that indicates Verizon users might soon get access to Samsung Pay mobile payments. Graylin is the co-GM of Samsung Pay so he should be in the know enough to say when and if the service will spread to other users. Graylin said in the tweet that Samsung pay for Verizon should be available in the next week or so.

Verizon outs Samsung Galaxy Tab E for some family fun

Verizon outs Samsung Galaxy Tab E for some family fun

Today, all eyes are probably on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus launch (or on the Pope), but there's always room for more than just Apple's devices. While Verizon has just revealed its own strategy for keeping iPhone owners updated on the latest release year after year, the carrier is also announcing an Android tablet for its customers. The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is no iPad, for sure, but it offers a potentially enticing combination of a budget tablet that can be used by anyone in the family.

Verizon now also has an iPhone yearly upgrade scheme

Verizon now also has an iPhone yearly upgrade scheme

Considering a new iPhone lands every year, it seems ideal, if not lucrative, to get consumers to get to upgrade to the latest iDevice every year as well. Thanks to Apple pushing its own annual upgrade plan without the help of carriers, those carriers are now also trying to win back subscribers hearts by ensuring that they too will get a fresh new iPhone yearly without having to ditch their plan. Joining and competing with T-Mobile, Verizon has revealed its own pricing plan to help its subscribers get the latest iPhones every year.

Verizon DROID Turbo 2 tipped coming October with Moto Maker

Word about the DROID Turbo 2, otherwise known as the Moto X Force outside the US, has seemingly been eclipsed by all the leaks surrounding the new Nexus smartphones due next week. But when all that's said and done, the DROID Turbo 2 might come out as a more interesting option for those not so keen on a pure Nexus device. With very high end specs and Moto Maker customization, this upcoming Motorola smartphone might again make some wish they were indeed on Verizon's network.
