The new Verizon rate plans

4 people viewing this

| By Kwestluv91 - 21 hours ago

I work in for a 3rd party verizon retailer as my second job, and I figured I would go over our new plans for you guys, as we have started saving a lot of our customers a good chunk of money just by moving onto the new plans.

Essentially this is how it breaks down:

Line access fees for smartphones have dropped from $40 to $20 a month, if you are currently still in contract, you will have to pay the $40 until your upgrade is available... but if you have an early upgrade, it will drop when you use that to get a new phone.

Line Access Fee:
Smartphones, Basic Phones, Home Phone Connect - $20
Mi-Fi, Internet Devices, Tablets - $10
Connected Devices, Gizmopal - $5

Data plans come in 4 main sizes, with 2 large sizes if needed
1gb= $30
3gb = $45
6gb = $60
12gb = $80
20gb = $120
25gb = $175

then from there its just the monthly cost of the phones... so like an iphone 6 is about $28 a month, but once you pay that off, you will no longer have those charges on the plan.

what i have seen is current verizon customers with upgrades are either just dropping their plan price by at least $20 per line, or they are getting brand new phones and their bill can stay pretty close to the same if not cheaper. it really depends on which phone you upgrade to. some of our low end smartphones or year old phones are $10-$15 a month.

signal strength is above all the other carriers too, so verizon offers $300 per trade ins, $200 in the form of a prepaid visa and $100 bill credit, so that alone will cut a massive chunk of the cost of your termination fee if you have one, or will cover a lot of your next few months bills.

Sprint Offering DirecTV Customers a Free Year of Service

3 people viewing this

| By LYTE - 1 day ago

Sprint's bugging

Sprint rolled out a promotion today that takes direct aim at rival AT&T. The company is offering DirecTV customers who switch to Sprint 12 months of free service. The offer includes unlimited talk and text and up to 2GB of LTE 4G data. Sprint said it will pay the ETFs for those who switch, as well as any remaining equipment payments up to $300. Customers will be responsible for a $36 activation charge and monthly taxes and fees. Once the 12-month promotion ends, users will be moved to a $50 monthly service plan (for a single line). The free year of service does not include Sprint's international services, and data overages are charged at $0.015 per MB. The promotion will be available from Aug. 28 through Sept. 30. DirecT was recently acquired by AT&T.

#iphoneSeasonBegins Apple iPhone 6'cess event announced for Wed, September 9.

4 people viewing this

| By ptwist - 2 days ago

Quote:

Apple has just announced its traditional fall iPhone launch, sending out invitations to the press for an event on September 9th at 10AM PST, as expected. Less expected? The venue, San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. That's a new one for Apple — and it's a massive venue with a 7,000-person seating capacity, so expect a lot of news.

The company is expected to unveil a new pair of smartphones: the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Not much is known about what the new devices might offer in the way of upgrades, but it's a good bet that the displays will incorporate Force Touch — technology that allows for force-sensitive touches and has already appeared on the Apple Watch and newer MacBooks. A dramatic camera upgrade has also been rumored, so we'll be looking for that.


We've also seen images of packaging that purportedly belongs to the iPhone 6S Plus from Chinese tech site cnBeta. The image shows an iPhone with what looks to be a Butterfly Koi. It's been suggested that this could be one of a new set of animated wallpapers arriving with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. This style of "motion wallpapers" have previously been seen on the Apple Watch, with the company said to have photographed one flower 24,000 times to create a single watch face.

What else? We've also heard rumbles that new iPads might be in the mix, including a rumored larger iPad Pro, and persistent whispers of a revised Apple TV never really seem to go away, although it seems as though that new-look streaming service still won't make it in time. And of course we'll see iOS 9, OS X El Capitan, and watchOS 2, all of which should be ready for primetime release.

Gonna be a big one, and we'll of course be there liveblogging and covering it all. Get ready.






Who's coppin the iphone ?

Article inside Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Sales Outpace Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Online In US

4 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 2 days ago



The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 saw twice the online U.S. sales of the S6 Edge Plus.

Online sales of Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 device are outpacing those of its Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in the United States. Samsung sold twice as many of the stylus-packed phablet compared to its curved-screen sibling, the latest estimates from 1010data Ecom Insights show. It's a sign that U.S. consumers are opting for the cheaper Note 5, which starts at about $700, instead of the slightly more expensive S6 Edge Plus, which starts around $770.

The data shows that Samsung sold about 10,000 Galaxy Note 5 units online and 5,000 S6 Edge Plus units between Aug. 14 and Aug. 23 in the U.S. In comparison, the company sold about 10,000 more of its smaller phones -- the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge -- when the devices launched in April. The S6 accounted for 20,000 units of U.S. online sales and the S6 Edge saw 5,000 sold in their first 10 days, 1010data reported.

U.S. online sales of the Note 5 and the S6 Edge Plus pale in comparison to their performance in South Korea, where combined sales topped 100,000, the Korea Times reported. But keep in mind that 1010data’s metrics are derived from a panel of millions of shoppers who opt-in for having their online behavior scanned anonymously, so its study doesn’t include in-store U.S. sales

Samsung typically unveils its new Note devices during the IFA trade show in Berlin. This year it opted to release it in August to better position it against the launch of Apple’s anticipated iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. But despite the early start, sales of Samsung’s phablets still pale in comparison to those of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, of which Apple may have sold 750,000 units online in the U.S. during their first 10 days, 1010data estimates. Globally, Apple sold 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units, the company said.

In lieu of a Note 5 unveiling at IFA Berlin in September, Samsung is expected to unveil its latest entrant into the smartwatch market -- the Gear S2.

Article inside Ashley Madison was a bunch of dudes talking to each other (Data confirmed)

3 people viewing this

| By mrfreak76 - 2 days ago



The Ashley Madison hack has revealed a lot of interesting things about the men who used the extramarital affair-finding site, like which cities, states, and universities they're from.

But what about the women?

Turns out, there may not have been very many women. As in, almost none.

Gizmodo writer Annalee Newlitz analyzed the data from the site's user database and found a lot of suspicious stuff that suggest nearly all the female accounts were fake, maintained by the company's employees.

First, the official numbers. The info that the hackers published contained about 31 million accounts apparently belonging to men, and about 5 million apparently belonging to women.

But when Newlitz dug deeper, she found a bunch of test accounts that ended with ashleymadison.com, suggesting that they were created internally (90% of them were for women), and a 350 female accounts for people with the same and very unusual last name.

Then, she found three really damning pieces of data:
  • Only 1,492 of the women in the database had ever checked their messages on the site. That's compared with more than 20 million men.
  • Only 2,409 of the women had ever used the site's chat function, versus more than 11 million men.
  • Only 9,700 women had ever responded to a message from another person on the site, versus almost 6 million men.

It's possible that most of the women signed up but never did anything.

But either way, Newlitz writes, "Ashley Madison is a site where tens of millions of men write mail, chat, and spend money for women who aren’t there."

The site's parent company, Avid Life Media, did not immediately return a request for comment.

Article inside Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 pre-orders start today

3 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 3 days ago



We know what the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 looks like, but what about the important stuff? Namely, when we'll be able to get our paws on it and how much it'll cost? Well, boy howdy the Korean electronics juggernaut's answered both of those questions this morning. You can pre-order the slate starting today and the device hits "select" US retailers and carriers come September 3rd. A WiFi model packed with 32GB of storage and a 9.7-inch screen will set you back a cool $499.99 while the 8-inch model with the same capacity is $100 less.

Both sizes are available in black (AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, T-Mobile), gold (WiFi only) and white (Verizon), and Samsung says it's working with Amazon and Best Buy for a sort of trade-in deal where bringing in a qualifying tablet will knock $100 off the S2's purchase price. Meanwhile, if you want something with mobile data, the required ducats will vary based on the carrier of your choice. Now, who's ready for breakfast?

E3Motorola's new camera is a massive upgrade over anything it's done before
Here's what the Moto X Play camera is capable of
By Vlad Savov on August 24, 2015 01:11 pm

For all its leadership in making Android phones more accessible and affordable to the masses, Motorola has never been able to count itself among the best cameraphone makers. The Chicago-based company has made an unfortunate habit of making really great phones with truly terrible cameras. This year, however, Moto promised — nay, guaranteed — that things would be different as it introduced a new 21-megapixel camera in its top-tier Moto X Style / Pure and Moto X Play devices. Having spent a day shooting with this new camera, I can say with certainty that this is indeed the best imaging equipment to have ever made its way inside a Moto smartphone. It's too soon to pass sound judgment on how it compares against the leaders in the field — like Samsung's Galaxy S6 series, LG's G4, and Apple's iPhone 6 — but the very fact these new Moto Xs are even in the conversation is a remarkable advance for Motorola.

Check out a selection of sample images herein and stay tuned for more in our full review of the Moto X Play that took all the photos. It will be here before you know it!

Video inside 1gb Ram vs 4gb Ram : Does it really make a difference? iPhone 6 and Note 5 go head to head

2 people viewing this

| By 86'd - 4 days ago

If you were to pit the Galaxy Note 5 against the iPhone 6 in terms of raw specs, the Note 5 would clobber AppleÂ’s 2014 flagship phone. As weÂ’ve seen in the past, however, hardware specs donÂ’t tell us everything we need to know about a phoneÂ’s performance.


A YouTuber with the account name DroidModderX ROOT Master (in other words, not an Apple fanboy) recently decided to pit the Galaxy Note 5 against the iPhone 6 in a speed test for opening up various applications. Despite the fact that the Note 5 has 4GB of RAM and the iPhone 6 has just 1GB of RAM, the iPhone 6 kept pace with the Note 5 in terms of being able to quickly open and load common apps.


But where the iPhone really blew the Note 5 out of the water was when DroidModderX started opening up apps for the second time. In this case, the apps that had already been opened once on the iPhone 6 popped up instantly while the apps that had been opened on the Note 5 still had to go through their full load times.

“As you can see, [the iPhone 6] is kind of blowing the Note 5 out of the water now because it doesn’t have to totally reopen apps,” DroidModderX explains during the video. “The Note 5 closes out every app and then totally has to reopen it… Part of the problem with TouchWiz is the way it handles memory… where as the iPhone 6 was able to just reopen the app from in the background.”

Check out the whole video below and see for yourself.

Image inside This could be HTC's next 'hero' smartphone

3 people viewing this

| By thaghost36 - 4 days ago





Back in June, HTC CEO Cher Wang promised that her beleaguered company would launch a new "hero product" this October, revitalizing its core smartphone business. Now, newly leaked images via Twitter account OnLeaks suggest that this device (codenamed Aero) seems to be taking a leaf out of Apple's design book. Photos purportedly showing the front and rear of the forthcoming smartphone reveal a case that's extremely similar to the back of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Although, this comparison is slightly unfair considering that Apple's use of metal cases with inset plastic lines to let the phone signal escape was a design feature seen in HTC's One handsets first.

BUT WHAT PHONE CAN HELP HTC NOW?

Reports from Android Central suggest that the HTC Aero will be marketed as the A9 and will feature curved glass at the front, a 5.2-inch quad HD display, a deca-core MediaTek X20 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 3,500mAh battery. These specs are far from certain though, and we may see some differences when the handset is (hopefully) announced this October. Still, it's hard to imagine any single smartphone turning around HTC's current financial woes, even with elements of Apple's design in play.

Article inside Breaking the Galaxy Note 5 is as easy as reinserting the stylus backwards

3 people viewing this

| By thaghost36 - 4 days ago

Owners of Samsung's new Galaxy Note 5 should be careful about how they handle the device's stylus. According to reports from various outlets, reinserting the Note 5's S Pen into the smartphone the wrong way can permanently disable the handset's stylus detection feature. This means that functions like quickly taking notes when the phone's screen is off, or automatically accessing the S Pen's radial menu no longer work. A video from Android Police shows the flaw in action, with the outlet reporting that stylus detection remained permanently broken after its tests. A similar story from Ars Technica found the same issue, but with the caveat that the reporter was able to get the features working again after some judicious wiggling of the S Pen inside the smartphone.




The flaw is particularly annoying because of the ease with which the S Pen can be inserted into the Note 5 the wrong way. With previous versions of the Note, it was impossible (or simply very difficult) to put the stylus in blunt end first, but the Note 5's redesigned S Pen means it's the same shape all the way down its length, and can be pushed into the phone just as easily the right way as the wrong way round. Without any physical resistance to warn users, it's a fair bet that at least some people will insert the S Pen backwards, perhaps permanently damaging their smartphone. We've asked Samsung for comment on this apparent design flaw and will update this story when they respond.

The Galaxy Note 5 And Galaxy S6 edge+ Are Easily Outselling The Galaxy Note 4

2 people viewing this

| By Jago - 5 days ago

Quote:


It looks like SamsungÂ’s latest phablet devices are selling quite well according to KoreaTimes. One of the key selling points of these devices seems to be Samsung Pay, which has already gone live in South Korea. Owners of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ can use this feature out of the box.

These two phablets have managed to sell over 100,000 units combined three days following their launch, which is higher than the sales figure of the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge during their initial launch days last September. HereÂ’s what an SK Telecom official had to say about sales of these two phablets:

Quote:

The combined average sales on a daily basis reached about 25,000. This is much more than sales of the Note 4 and the Note Edge, which were introduced in September last year. SamsungÂ’s decision to release the new Note and Galaxy a few months ahead of their international debut has had a good impact.
It’s going to be interesting to follow the sale figures of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ once Samsung Pay arrives in the US starting with the 28th of September. Judging by the fact that their ‘Ultimate Test Drive’ promotion had such a big success, it’s safe to say that the tech company’s latest devices will have good amount of success.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ are selling much better than the Galaxy Note 4 - SamMobile

Sprint Start Rolling Out Samsung Pay To The Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge

Quote:


It looks like Samsung is ready to remind people that Samsung Pay is going to be ready for action starting next month, because Sprint just started pushing an update to the S6 and S6 Edge that brings just that (and more) to the handsets.
  • Samsung Pay
  • Live broadcasting via Yahoo!
  • High Quality Audio (with Samsung headsets)
  • UI updates
  • Bug fixes

Alongside Pay, there's also an option to "live broadcast" via Yahoo, high quality audio with Samsung headsets, some sort of UI update, and of course the always-loved but rarely seen bug fixes.

The updates for both devices should start rolling out today.

Samsung reportedly conducting intensive testing on the Snapdragon 820

4 people viewing this

| By KingP1n - 5 days ago

Quote:

Samsung didnÂ’t go with the Snapdragon 810 for this yearÂ’s flagship devices instead it opted for its own Exynos 7420 processor but that doesnÂ’t mean that the company will never return to Qualcomm processors for high-end devices. It has been rumored multiple times that the company might consider using the Snapdragon 820, internally known as Jungfrau, in the Galaxy S7 next year and a new report out of Korea claims that Samsung has already started conducting intensive testing on the upcoming Qualcomm processor.

The report suggests that Samsung has still not made up its mind about whether it should stick with its own Exynos processor for next yearÂ’s flagship or go with the Snapdragon 820 thatÂ’s being intensively tested at its labs. The tests are going to provide Samsung with data thatÂ’s going to make this decision easier. As far as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is concerned itÂ’s expected to feature a 64-bit quad-core CPU with 14nm FinFET which promises 35 percent improvement over the Snapdragon 810, Adreno 530 GPU, LP-DDR4 RAM support, Cat. 10 LTE modem as well as support for 4K60 fps encode/decode, UFS and eMMC 5.1 storage solutions.

Moto X Play reportedly coming to Verizon as the Droid Maxx 2

2 people viewing this

| By gusgus - 6 days ago

Motorola Moto X Play
When Motorola unveiled the Moto X Play, it left Americans hanging. Would that combination of a big display, mid-tier specs and a huge battery ever reach the US? If you ask Phandroid, the answer is yes -- although it might not show up in the form you'd like. The site's sources claim that the Play will show up on Verizon later this year as the Droid Maxx 2, and that it'll cost the same $300 contract-free as the regular model would if it were officially available in the US. There's no clue as to whether or not it'll be significantly different, although an earlier HellomotoHK leak pointed to Droid-specific backing. Sadly, the apparent leak suggests that you'll still have to go to an importer (or wait for Verizon's exclusive to end, if it ever does) to get the Play in its unaltered form.

And what about the non-Pure Edition of the Moto X Style? That's reportedly coming Stateside through Verizon as well, although it definitely wouldn't be the exact same handset. The tipsters believe that it'll launch as the Droid Turbo 2, and that its signature feature will be an "unbreakable" plastic OLED display that should better survive bumps and drops. You might also get a metal chassis with built-in wireless charging, if a previous HellomotoHK scoop was showing this device. The Turbo 2 would be much more expensive than the Style at $600 up front, but you'd also be getting considerably more phone for your money.




What yall think? Moto Season?
