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

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.

5G in the USA made simple: Sub-6 vs mmWave

Today we're using the Galaxy S20 as a key example in explaining 5G in the USA. We'll be exploring the two main varieties of what's considered 5G mobile data as well as the coverage you can get with carriers in the USA today - and in the near future.

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.

AT&T unlimited data throttling lawsuit ends in $60 million settlement

AT&T unlimited data throttling lawsuit ends in $60 million settlement

Network operators have redefined what the word "unlimited" means, or at least as it applies to data. What they really meant was limited unlimited data that incurred consequences once you hit certain conditions. That may be common practice but AT&T may have tried to get away with it until the FTC slapped it with a lawsuit. Now five years later, the major US carrier has decided to just pay the fine, long after the case could have any significant effect in the industry.

AT&T announces three new Unlimited plans because simplicity is dead

AT&T announces three new Unlimited plans because simplicity is dead

Seemingly unsatisfied with the two unlimited plans it already offers, AT&T has decided to up the ante a bit. Today the company revealed that it's replacing its two current unlimited plans - Unlimited & More and Unlimited & More Premium - with three new ones. Two of these plans will be launching early next week, while the third will be launching later on down the road.

HBO Max is launching May 2020, here are the details you need to know

The video streaming industry is already a crowded and highly competitive space but it's about to get even more competitive and a bit more confusing. In about two weeks, the much-rumored and long-awaited Disney+ will finally launch and 6 months after that, a new streaming service will launch under the HBO brand. That said, HBO Max is actually an AT&T product, which is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this rather unusual streaming service.
