LG Q7 Android One for T-Mobile sighted

LG Q7 Android One for T-Mobile sighted

While not exactly numerous, there is no severe dearth of Android One devices, at least outside the US. Here, it’s pretty much just down to last year’s Moto X4 variant and the few Nokia phones that have made it to these shores. There might be more coming, like the Motorola One Power, but Motorola might no longer have the show to itself. Some very curious Android fans may have discovered clues to what could be not only LG’s first Android One phone but also T-Mobile’s. It might, however, be an odd variant of an already existing phone, the newly-announced LG Q7.

T-Mobile gets $40 million fine for fake ring tones, connections

Just because you hear the other line ringing doesn't necessarily mean the other line is actually ringing. Especially if the caller is on T-Mobile. It seems that the Un-carrier has been "faking it" when it comes to connecting calls in rural areas, using fake ring tones and connections to make it seem like they were connecting and just failing. That lie is now going to cost T-Mobile $40 million in fines and a whole lot more in criticisms.
