Google’s Sundar Pichai confirms MVNO carrier plans


google-sundar-pichai-MWC-2015_MVNO

Earlier last month, it was revealed that Google was readying their own MVNO carrier plan. In other words, a seller of other carrier networks, namely Sprint and T-Mobile. Today Sundar Pichai as confirmed that Google will indeed offer some sort of plan. That’s the good news. The bad news is that he didn’t reveal anything else other than it will be “in the coming months.” Reading between the lines, you have to think that they will make an announcement at Google I/O.

Pichai did ensure that they are working with all carriers, including AT&T and Verizon to make sure they don’t disrupt existing relationships.

The rumored plan includes some sort of combination of Sprint and T-Mobile service that would automatically switch to the best signal and Wi-Fi. It’s also been reported that it could be more geared towards the tablet crowd.

What do you guys think? Can Google offer something compelling here?

Carriers announce that they will carry the S6 and S6 Edge


samsung_galaxy_s6_front_back_standing_blue

Despite a March 1 announcement, it appears that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available after a bit, starting April 10. As such, carriers here in the US and abroad have announced that they will be carrying the new Galaxy flagship. Those include, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint in the US and Vodafone and Three in the UK. As far as pre-paid is concerned there are a few carriers that will carry the new Galaxy.

Cricket Wireless announced that it will carry the S6 while US Cellular announced that the S6 and S6 Edge will grace its network. Crickett Wireless has mentioned that the S6 will be available for $35 a month after $5 auto-pay credit. There’s no word on other carriers, like Verizon, and if they intend to carry the new Galaxy (we would guess that they will) or when most of these carriers will actually have the phone. Either way, we’ll let you know when they do.

T-Mobile details the progress of your Android phone’s updates


HTC One M8

Many US carriers don’t tell you how close you are to an Android update — in some cases, you’ll be thankful if you get a forum post after the new software hits. T-Mobile, however, just became more accommodating. It just launched a tracking site that shows you whether or not an Android device upgrade is still in development, at the carrier for testing, or ready for action. If you’re curious, you can also dive into a discussion. This isn’t the most elaborate page (you won’t get time estimates), but it will at least let you know whether or not you should be patient.

T-Mobile users can track Android updates with new website



T-Mobile customers worried about receiving the latest version of Android can now track the status in an official capacity. A newly launched Software Updates page helps subscribers pin down the update for their respective device.

Broken into three categories, the tool lets interested parties see where the update is along the development process. As of today the site is tracking Android 5.0 Lollipop for nine models spread over smartphones and tablets.

Noticeably missing as of this time are any Sony and LG products. What’s more, we imagine the page could be expanded to include all of its portfolio, even those not expecting Lollipop. Sure, it might not be the best of news, but it’s transparent.

Here’s how to find out when your T-Mobile smartphone or tablet will receive the next software update


T-Mobile_Logo_01_TA

Probably the biggest question smartphone owners have is, “When will I get a software update?” Well T-Mobile is now making it a lot easier to find out that answer. They launched a dedicated site which will let you select your device (phone or tablet) and then find out where things stand.

Software updates have 3 stages and they include manufacturer development, T-Mobile testing, and completion. Once a manufacturer finishes development, they send it to the carrier (in this case T-Mobile) for testing. Testing checks for bugs, which could end up going back to manufacturing development. However, once the carrier (again in this case T-Mobile) is satisfied, then it’s considered completed, and the update will be rolled out. This new site will let you know at what stage your next update is at, as well as what version of Android it will be.

So for example, if you were to select the HTC One (M7), you will find out that Lollipop is in T-Mobile testing right now. This means that it could literally get approved for roll out any day now. Unfortunately, depending on how many bugs there are, it could still be a ways off. So no, you won’t get any target dates, but it will give you an idea of how things are progressing and if the manufacturer is committed to offering the most recent update.

You will be able to select from the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), HTC One (M7), HTC One (M8), Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, and Galaxy S 5. Of course more devices will be added soon.

T-Mobile brings device software update page to life, lacks any real information


Keeping customers in the know on when their device may, or may not, receive a software update is tricky business. In the beginning we really never knew. We just waited and hoped it would come. Then things got heated where an update would land on one device in one country and never make it to […]
