Verizon’s Visible is an unexpectedly-exclusive month-to-month carrier [Update]

It isn't a stretch to say that mobile service here in the US costs a lot of money. When you account for plans, line fees, and now device payment agreements, your wireless service can usually be counted among your most expensive monthly charges.

That's a surprisingly big discount, especially when you consider that the Pixel 2 and its XL brother are only around a half-year old at this point.

HTC U12 confirmed, briefly leaked by Verizon

With the upcoming announcements for the LG G7 ThinQ and OnePlus 6, it might be too easy to forget that there are still two big brands that haven't made their play yet, namely Motorola and HTC. Given its continuing financial crisis, HTC's fate is perhaps a bit more interesting. The HTC U12, or U12+, however, has yet to even show a shadow but it seems that someone over at Verizon got wee bit too excited. A certain HTC U12 briefly popped up at the Carrier's Open Development site, the very same site that accidentally leaked the existence of 128 GB and 256 GB version of the Galaxy S9.

Galaxy S9 128GB and 256GB models could be US-bound

It appears that Samsung may soon release new storage options for the Galaxy S9 and its big brother here in the US. Thus far, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have only been available in the US with 64GB of storage. That's a decent amount, but it means anyone looking for more storage has to purchase a microSD card - an added expense that some would rather not deal with by purchasing a phone with more internal storage at the start.

Senate aims to stop FCC from stripping internet assistance from the poor

Senate aims to stop FCC from stripping internet assistance from the poor

Back in November of 2017 we took a look at a bit of legislation from the FCC that'd all but destroy the program called Lifeline. Lifeline was created all the way back during the Reagan administration to help the poor afford telephone service. The FCC during the W Bush administration updated Lifeline to include wireless internet, then the FCC during Obama's presidency updated Lifeline to include broadband. Now the Trump FCC wants to gut Lifeline like a fish.
