LG V60 ThinQ 5G in the US gets Android 11 finally

LG V60 ThinQ 5G in the US gets Android 11 finally

Before LG set about re-imagining and rebranding its smartphones, the mouthful that is the LG V60 ThinQ 5G, with a "UW" appended in some cases, landed in the US before all hell broke loose around the world. To some extent, it is the last of its kind, closing a chapter in LG's history. It sadly wasn't that celebrated, thanks to numerous reasons, but now owners of the last "V" phone have another reason to celebrate as it is the first LG phone in the US to get the much-awaited Android 11 update.

T-Mobile has launched a new plan where unlimited actually does mean unlimited, with Magenta MAX promising no caps on 4G or 5G data. It's an unusual move for an industry which had in recent years tended to require plenty of small print to explain just why your "unlimited" service actually had plenty of caveats and limits.

T-Mobile confirms network update will disconnect these devices

T-Mobile confirms network update will disconnect these devices

It seems that carriers share a common theme this year of "out with the old and in with the new". In most cases, that refers to their desire to finally shut down 3G services, a move that has been met with resistance that forced some network operators to delay their plans. T-Mobile, however, has one network update coming that is both mysterious and also inescapable. By the end of the month, as many as 19 devices, will no longer be able to connect to its network, forcing users to upgrade their devices, presuming they haven't yet.

T-Mobile data breach exposed thousands of phone numbers, call records

T-Mobile data breach exposed thousands of phone numbers, call records

2020 was pretty much a disaster and it ended like one as well, at least for the cybersecurity community, governments, and some companies. Even just a day before it ended, another major US name was added to that list, though this time with far less nefarious consequences as the SolarWinds hacking incident. That said, it still isn't reassuring that one of the four (now three, really) biggest US mobile operators did get hacked, even if all that may have been accessed were mostly phone numbers.

T-Mobile lists 19 devices that will stop working on its network next month

Given the rate of turnover in the smartphone market, it is almost expected that consumers change phones every two to three years. It's definitely unheard of for people to hold on to five-year-old phones that may not even be able to run the latest versions of Android, for example. In that case, very few people might be affected by T-Mobile's still-unannounced decision to completely cut off some devices from its network but the unexplained reason for that change makes it just as mysterious.
