More than two years ago, however, AT&T ruffled no small amount of feathers when it rolled out its "5G Evolution" advertising campaign and its accompanying "5G E" icon on phones. That has lead to formal complaints and now AT&T is being given a slap on the wrist though that decision may come too little too late to make a difference anyway.

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

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.

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.

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.
