Verizon Wireless Backtracks on New ‘Convenience’ Charge for Online Payments

Verizon Wireless Backtracks on New 'Convenience' Charge for Online Payments

A petition encouraging Verizon Wireless to keep online payments free of additional fees has over 110,000 signatures at the moment, roughly 1 short day after it was started. While it’s certainly a prime example of negative customer feedback, the real impetus in changing course on payment fees was more than likely the FCC announcing that they were “concerned” about Verizon’s actions, and “looking into the matter.”

AT&T iPhones Beat Verizon On Speed, Verizon iPhones Beat AT&T On Sales – Barely

AT&T iPhones Beat Verizon On Speed, Verizon iPhones Beat AT&T On Sales - Barely

Remember the life altering release of the iPhone on Verizon? It seems that it hasn’t altered as many lives as expected.

According to Wired, data from the Speedtest.net iPhone app shows that AT&T iPhone data transfer rates were roughly 2 times faster than those of the Verizon iPhone. When it comes to sales of that Verizon iPhone, it’s still attractive to new buyers but not in the overwhelming numbers many anticipated.

Bing Comes To Android, But Only If You Have Verizon

Bing Comes To Android, But Only If You Have Verizon

With Windows Phone 7 coming before the end of the year, it’s not unreasonable to think Microsoft wouldn’t go about releasing new apps on competing platforms. That doesn’t seem to be stopping the company, however, as it has now launched a Bing app for Android.

Verizon Finally Makes The Droid 2 Official

Verizon Finally Makes The Droid 2 Official

We all knew it was coming eventually. Last year Verizon and Motorola saw great success with the release of the original Droid, which was the flagship Android phone for at least a few weeks The Droid continues to be a great success, being that it is a great phone with a lot of advertising behind it. Makes sense that there would be a follow up apart from the Droid Incredible and Droid X.

Today Verizon has finally made the Droid 2, the true successor to the Droid, official. The Droid 2 looks fairly similar to the first Droid, but has more rounded corners where the Droid had sharp angles. Gone is the bar under the screen that stayed put when the screen slides up, now it slides with the rest of the front. Also gone is the D-pad, replaced with arrow keys and an “OK” button, which make the keyboard feel more natural to some.

Verizon Smartphones: Tech Under $50

Verizon Smartphones: Tech Under $50

Smartphones can be pretty expensive. The monthly contracts tack on more fees (and services) than feature phones, which add up over time. Even at the outset, they are also quite expensive. Phones like the previous version of the iPhone (currently the 3GS) are selling for $99, but there are still a lack of smartphones in the $100 or less category. Unlike wine, vintage technology is rarely in demand, but if you’re willing to sacrifice some of the latest and greatest features, there are a few decent phones to be had at a relative bargain.

V CAST is Coming To Verizon Droid Phones on June 7th

V CAST is Coming To Verizon Droid Phones on June 7th

Verizon has been seeing well-deserved success with it’s Droid smartphones, so much so that sales and a screen shortage have been keeping the Droid Incredible unavailable essentially since it’s launch. That’s been without Verizon’s special V CAST service which it puts on just about every other phone.

On Monday, June 7, that will change and Android users on Verizon will be able to enjoy the on-demand TV shows that other Verizon customers enjoy. Of course, like other Verizon customers, Droid phone users will have to pay extra for V CAST. The service will cost them $3 per day or $10 a month depending on how they wish to use the service, if at all. {Electronista}

PC Mag Tests 3G Networks, Finds AT&T The Fastest

PC Mag Tests 3G Networks, Finds AT&T The Fastest

With the EVO 4G finally here, and the new iPhone being announced shortly, as well as great smartphones on T-Mobile and Verizon, choosing a new phone can be tough. Price and voice coverage are always something to consider, but data speeds are quickly becoming important as well. Every carrier claims to have fast speed, but PC Mag decided to test which is the fastest overall.

After thousands of tests in 18 cities, the test came back with the almost surprising conclusion that AT&T is the fastest network out there right now. The iPhone carrier came out as the fastest in all areas of the US aside from the Northeast. It is worth noting that technically, Sprint’s 4G network was the fastest that was tested, but it was only available in 9 out of 18 cities tested so it wasn’t counted. {PC Mag}
