Mobile phone carrier AT&T has posted details about the upcoming 64GB version of the HTC One smartphone, underlining that it would have the exclusive rights to sell the phone in the US.
AT&T added that it would also offer the phone in both colors - the Glacier Silver and the Stealth Black. The company also showed off two accessories, HTC Double Flip Case and the Morphie Juice Pack, which will be selling alongside the smartphone. For heavy users, there will be an extended battery pack as well.
On Wednesday, AT&T announced its "Mobile Share" plans, which - quite like the Verizon's last month-unveiled "Share Everything" plans - will give the carrier's customers the opportunity to avail the benefits of one single data plan across a number of devices.
While AT&T has been hinting about its "Mobile Share" plans for a few months now, the carrier will start offering these plans from next month. Under the plans, AT&T will offer unlimited minutes for phone calls as well as unlimited text messages. The plans will work with up to 10 devices, with one of them required to be a smartphone.
In a disclosure which underscores law enforcement agencies’ increasing reliance on cellphones for tracking suspects or probing crimes, a congressional inquiry has found that, in 2011, as many as 1.3 million surveillance requests were received by cellphone carriers.
According to a New York Times report, the information which the law enforcement agencies sought from the carriers last year chiefly comprised details about text messages, wire taps, and callers’ location. The carriers provided this information either because of legal orders or in emergency situations.
Taiwanese handset-maker HTC has officially announced that it much-awaited One X smartphone will hit the AT&T stores on May 6; with the pre-orders for the handset to begin from April 22.
Priced at $200, with a two-year service contract from AT&T, the HTC One X will be the first AT&T smartphone to be powered by the latest Android OS version - the Android 4.0 `Ice cream Sandwich.'
With AT&T's policy against unlocked iPhones - a move which has been in place ever since the company became the exclusive iPhone carrier when the handset was launched in 2007 - coming to an end this Sunday, users of the smartphone will henceforth be able to benefit from more affordable services while traveling overseas.
With AT&T having announced its plans to make its new data pricing effective from Sunday, January 22, there are speculations galore that the move may risk defections for the carrier.
AT&T's new data plans - which will have the new subscribers paying approximately 33 percent more for the monthly data plans - are apparently a part of the carrier's strategy to manage annual wireless data growth of around 40 percent as well as benefit from the demand for data-starving devices such as the Apple iPhone.
After the failure of the proposed $39 billion merger deal with T-Mobile, Dallas, Texas-based AT&T is now mulling back up plans to look for ways to expand its extremely crowded spectrum.
While AT&T had pinned its hopes on the T-mobile merger for relieving a chunk of its spectrum, the failed merger has now left both the concerned companies searching for solution that may underscore a new fruitful direction.
Months of passionate lobbying couldn’t help AT&T to realize its dream of becoming the largest mobile phone operator in the United States by acquiring T-Mobile USA.
AT&T on Monday announced its decision to abandon its controversial $39 billion-bid for T-Mobile USA.
The takeover bid was announced in March, the bid encountered severe objections from the sides of rival like Verizon, federal agencies the U. S. Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission and many consumer groups over concerns that the takeover would harm customers by hurting competition in the market.
Users in the top 5 per cent of AT&T traffic are reportedly seeing their data speeds cut all the way back to 2G speed as the network provider has started throttling its heaviest data users.
According to CultofMac, AT&T has alerted heavy users of its move via text message stating, “Your data usage is among the top 5 percent of users. Data speeds for the rest of your current bill cycle may be reduced.”
The move comes as no surprise. Back in July, AT&T had made it clear that it would throttle speeds for heavy data users from 1st of October.
The LG Nitro HD, the first LTE-capable smartphone available on airwaves of AT&T, has several software and hardware specs that allow it to make a distinction from the crowd of others.

According to a Financial Times (FT) report, the German government - which is the biggest, 32 percent, shareholder in Deutsche Telekom - is becoming increasingly apprehensive that the US antitrust concerns would probably lead to the fall through of AT&T's proposed $39 billion acquisition of Deutsche Telekom's US mobile phone division, T-Mobile USA.
The uncertainty surrounding AT&T's planned $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA increased recently when the proposed merger hit yet another stumbling block --- with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)'s chairman stating on Friday that the merger failed to meet the FCC's standard for approval.
In a last week statement by the Philippines police's Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), it was revealed that the law enforcement officials in Philippines, together with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), busted a gang of four alleged hackers in Manila; and that the hackers supposedly have links with a terrorist group based in Saudi Arabia.
