The holidays are coming and it is easily the busiest time for carriers. There are promotional offers to be found everywhere to encourage new lines and upgrades. On November 14, Sprint will be adding value to its Family Share Pack Plans. The plans, which come in $80 (12GB) and $90 (16GB) price points, will lower the cost of a line to $15 per month. This is down from $25. Families will definitely rejoice over that. Furthermore, a tablet will cost $10 per month. Sprint is leaving some money in your pocket with the hope that it will be spent on new devices.

Hit the break for the full press release.

Prepare for bloatware with a Nexus 6 from AT&T

Nexus_6_With_Lollipop

Purchasing a device through a carrier comes with one major downside: the bloatware. Any device, no matter the hardware manufacturer, will ship with software that just takes up space and will never be used. It has gotten better over time but bloatware is still an issue. Nexus devices always remained the exception to the rule as Google kept the experience pure and the way Android is meant to be seen. This year, the Nexus 6 will be available through select carriers. And at least the Nexus 6 sold through AT&T will be packed with bloatware. Most of them are AT&T’s, covering things like account information and navigation. Fortunately, it can all be removed (which at one point was not possible).

So maybe it is indeed a good thing that Verizon is not selling the Nexus 6 itself at this time.

T-Mobile Nexus 6 launch now pushed to November 19

T-Mobile_Logo_01_TA

T-Mobile announced via Twitter that the Nexus 6 launch will be pushed to November 19, one week later. They didn’t give a reason other than they want to give customers the best experience possible. That could mean a lot of things, but we suspect it has to do more with supply than anything else.

AT&T pre-orders are already live and Sprint will have the device this Friday. Still no word on when Verizon will carry the device, but don’t expect it to be too soon since they are in DROID mode at the moment.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge for US Cellular stops by the FCC

samsung_galaxy_note_edge_demo_4

The Galaxy Note Edge is heading to carriers in the United States this week. AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are all going to release the unique Samsung device on November 14. Verizon, at some point in the near future, will join in doing so. So the Galaxy Note Edge will be found the nation’s four largest carriers. There is good news for customers with smaller carriers as well.

A Samsung device with the model number SM-N915R4 showed up at the FCC. This matches that of the Galaxy Note Edge and the ending “R4″ belongs to a specific carrier. Which one? It seems that US Cellular will be getting its own Galaxy Note Edge.

Want the Nexus 6 from Sprint? Carrier only offering one configuration

nexus_6_cloud_white_back

The Nexus 6 in all of its color and storage options is available from Google Play. No matter what carrier you have, Google Play’s Nexus 6 will be supported with an appropriate SIM card. Carriers in the United States, though, will be selling the device themselves. Prospective buyers just won’t see the same amount of configurations on a carrier-by-carrier basis. Sprint clarified today that it would only offer the Midnight Blue model with 32GB of storage. Want 16GB? Or do you want Cloud White? You cannot have either one if purchasing through Sprint.

So, again, the Play Store will offer exactly what you want because carriers decide to make odd choices.
