LG V60 ThinQ 5G carrier deals confirmed: Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T

LG V60 ThinQ 5G carrier deals confirmed: Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T

The LG V60 ThinQ 5G has landed on US carriers, and the deals are impressive if you're looking for high-speed connectivity and some dual-screen action. Announced last month, the Android smartphone may be LG's 2020 flagship but it's not really priced that way, and the good news is that on some carriers the second screen attachment comes as standard.

AT&T data caps temporarily lifted to help COVID-19 countermeasures

AT&T data caps temporarily lifted to help COVID-19 countermeasures

Access to the Internet has proved to be more than just a luxury as cities or even whole countries lock themselves down to prevent the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 virus. Work and schools are moving their activities online and social media and messaging have become the only ways people can safely keep in touch. In the US, however, consumers are facing concerns that their increased Internet use may also increase their expenses. Fortunately for AT&T subscribers, that won't be the case, at least during the coronavirus crisis.

AT&T Pixel 4 March security update pulled for critical bug

Google has just released its regular monthly update to improve the security of its Pixel phones and Android in general. It even talked about in some detail the new security-unrelated features that the Pixel 4 will be receiving this month. Imagine, then, the confusion that some Pixel 4 owners received instead when the March update for AT&T was mysteriously yanked from the Internet. It turns out that Google may have missed a critical step that left some features like Google Pay broken on the carrier-locked phone.

AT&T TV launched to bundle smart TV, internet, and live TV

AT&T just launched AT&T TV, a system with which the average consumer can get "smart TV" in their home. This is all about getting apps and streaming content into the homes of the people that have not yet purchased a smart TV or a smart TV box of some sort or another. If you're not already in that space, AT&T wants to be the one to make you understand that this is the future - and that you should get into it as soon as possible.

Our biggest iPhone 5G fear is unlikely in 2020 insists analyst

Our biggest iPhone 5G fear is unlikely in 2020 insists analyst

Both sorts of 5G iPhone will be ready for the 2020 season, so insisted top Apple-centric industry and trends analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. This is a very similar prediction to one made by this same analyst at the tail end of 2019. Normally a second prediction of such extremely similar content would not be necessary - but for the appearance of alternate predictions that've made their way to headlines over the past couple of weeks.

AT&T Call Validation is now rolling out to a few phones

AT&T Call Validation is now rolling out to a few phones

Although the attention has been overshadowed by some more pressing concerns, robocalls still present an ongoing headache and threat to both consumers and network operators. Unfortunately, strategies to counter this issue have been inconsistent and split between different parties in the past. Recently, US carriers have agreed on some modicum of cooperation, with some prodding by the FTC, and AT&T is now launching the first fruits of that collaboration in the form of Call Validation Displays on some Samsung and LG smartphones.

AT&T 5G goes live in these 10 new cities

AT&T 5G goes live in these 10 new cities

With 2019 winding down quickly, AT&T announced today that it has expanded its 5G network to 10 new markets. AT&T's 5G rollout began earlier this year, and ever since then, it's been flipping the switch on service in new markets periodically, with a particular focus on its business customers. The company continues to claim that it will have nationwide 5G up and running in the first half 2020, but what that term actually means in regards to AT&T's plans is still a bit nebulous.

Episodes of Rick and Morty, Friends, Big Bang Theory licensing through 2028

Episodes of Rick and Morty, Friends, Big Bang Theory licensing through 2028

If you're looking for episodes of Rick and Morty in the near future, you won't be amongst the unlucky masses with just one option. If you're looking for a show like The Office, for example, you've likely been watching on Netflix for the past few years - but soon you'll have to head elsewhere. The same is true of many Disney TV shows and movies, including Marvel Comics movies and Star Wars movies - all of which are now on Disney+. But Cartoon Network, the folks who run the license show when it comes to Rick and Morty, do not seem to be taking the bait when it comes to the whole "exclusive" deal other networks are attempting to score.

AT&T 5G roll-out detailed: The cities, devices, and downsides

AT&T is talking more about its 5G plans today, announcing that it plans to offer nationwide 5G by the end of the first half of 2020. That's a pretty ambitious goal, and to get the ball rolling, AT&T announced that it will launch low-band 5G service in 15 additional cities by February 2020. On top of all that, the company told us which plans we'll need in order to tap into 5G and announced when pre-orders for its first consumer 5G phone, the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, will open up.

AT&T Mobile Share price increase has one saving grace

AT&T Mobile Share price increase has one saving grace

Wireless carriers hiking plan pricing is nothing new, but we don't often see them attempting to frame those price hikes as if they're a gift to subscribers. That's exactly what AT&T is doing though, announcing today that it's giving customers on its Mobile Share plans more data each month, but it's also raising prices in the process. Customers, unsurprisingly, have no say in whether or not they get the extra data and therefore the price hike.
