When Verizon decided to pick up the Motorola Moto G to offer to their customers, they decided to only make it available via one of their prepaid plans. If a 3G smartphone is sufficient for your needs and you are okay with Verizon, then you may want to jump on this latest deal from Amazon. They are offering the Moto G for only $70.

There is no indication how long this deal will be available, but a check of Verizon indicates you can still get it for a Friday delivery if you order by late Thursday afternoon. Hit the source link if you want to check out the offer or place an order.

Straight_Talk_Logo

Straight Talk, the no contract pre-paid wireless provider, has announced a small bump in the data limit on their $45 per month plan. The unlimited talk and text plan now gets 3GB of data per month, a small increase from the 2.5GB limit that was in place. Since Straight Talk does not charge overage fees, users who go over the new 3GB limit will find their data speeds throttled down to 2G type performance. Straight Talk has also enhanced their $30 “All You Need” plan for non-smartphone users to provide unlimited text, 1500 minutes of voice and 100MB of data. For the rest of May Straight Talk will have demo units available at Walmart stores on Saturdays for potential buyers to try out and is offering a $25 Walmart gift card if a Samsung Galaxy Centura or Discover phone is purchased in May.

The Lucid 3 (VS876) is not the only device LG has in the works for Verizon Wireless. The Optimus Exceed 2 is a prepaid option heading Big Red, we just do not know when. Courtesy of @evleaks, we have a very clear look at the device. Like LG’s other handsets, the Optimus Exceed 2 has very slim bezels. The main difference between this device and the previously leaked Lucid 3 seems to be the fact that since this is a prepaid Verizon handset, it only supports 3G and not 4G LTE. But both devices are officially announced, we will not know the actual internal specifications. » Read the rest

ZTE Boost Max phablet launches on Boost Mobile

ZTE Boost Max

ZTE showed off their Iconic Phablet at CES this year, highlighting its multi-window capabilities, large screen, and lower price point. Fast forward three weeks, and we’re already seeing the device hit US shores, although with a different name. Boost Mobile is the first to pick up the phablet, calling it the Boost Max.

The Boost Max features a 5.7 inch 720p screen, dual-core Snapdragon CPU with 1 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 3200 mAh battery. For $300, it’s a pretty decent device, especially for Boost Mobile customers. Unfortunately, the Boost Max is launching with Android 4.1 as opposed to Android 4.3, which was shown off on the handset at CES. Go figure.

If you’re interested, you can purchase the device, no contract, for $300 below.

Photo of Verizon’s Moto G leaks, usual branding is missing

In a shocking move, Verizon will not be putting its logo on any of part of the Moto G‘s body. The device, which will land in the United States in January, is breaking away from Verizon’s norm. The image above comes from none other than @evleaks. As you can see, the only thing that gives away the device as being Verizon’s is the 3G indicator. Devices like the LG G2, HTC One, and famously the Samsung Galaxy Note II had Verizon branding stamped all over the place. Even the Moto X had a Verizon logo on the back, but that was nowhere near as obnoxious as last year’s Galaxy Note. When the Moto G becomes available on Verizon, it will only operate on their prepaid network. » Read the rest

Verizon launches the Daily Plan, a prepaid plan at $5 for 300MB a day

Verizon has announced today their new prepaid plan called the Daily Plan. If you have a tablet or even a camera like the Samsung Galaxy Camera, the Daily Plan will allow you to get 300MB for the day for just $5. Verizon says that “the Daily Plan lasts 24 hours or until the most recent 300 MB is exhausted, whichever comes first. If a customer runs out of data, they can purchase another 300 MB for an additional $5.” In my opinion, this is great for people that just need their tablet to be connected for a short period of time. And since the plan works with the Galaxy Camera, you can share photos without having to find a WiFi hotspot.

Verizon will carry the Moto G on their prepaid network in early 2014

Verizon has announced via Twitter they will be offering the Moto G on their prepaid network starting early next year. Considering the Moto G does not have LTE, it’s not really a surprise Verizon won’t be offering it on their postpaid network, but it’s slightly disappointing either way. As long as Verizon doesn’t try to overcharge for the device, though, it’s still a good deal for their $60 prepaid smartphone monthly plan.

Anybody planning on picking one of these up early next year?
