    AT&T Entices New And Existing Customers With Free Credit

    att-outside-logo-signIn the past we have seen how AT&T has attempted to lure customers away from competing carriers, such as T-Mobile, by offering them free credit as well as the ability to trade-in their smartphone for credit as well. Last we heard, AT&T was willing to offer T-Mobile customers up to $450 in credit but now according to a new announcement by the carrier, it seems that they have their eyes set on pretty much the entire carrier industry and have revealed a new plan to lure customers away and onto their network. Based on the new plan, AT&T is expected to offer all new and existing customers $100 in credit on their bill for every new line that they open.

    This offer will extend to smartphones, tablets, feature phones, and wireless home phone lines that are bundled with AT&T’s 4G LTE service. Unfortunately this is not a permanent offer as AT&T will be putting an end to this deal come 31st of March. Both AT&T and T-Mobile are in a war right now for customers, with T-Mobile being the more aggressive of the two, offering up to $650 to make customers switch over, where the $650 will cover the cost of you possibly buying your way out of a contract from a different carrier. We suppose at the end of the day the customers are the ones who win, so we can’t really complain, right?

    AT&T LG G Flex Has Arrived

    lg-g-flex_06If you have been on the lookout for the LG G Flex, then you would be pleased to take note that the smartphone is already available via AT&T, not too soon after its pre-orders went live last week. Of course, as for our friends who happen to live across the pond, you need not fret, since the LG G Flex is tipped to arrive at over 20 different countries in Europe. T-Mobile users will have to be a little bit more patient though since their LG G Flex will only arrive next month, clearly giving AT&T a head start among the rest of the major mobile carriers in the market.

    AT&T LG G Flex Pre-Orders Go Live On January 24

    AT&T LG G Flex Pre Orders Go Live On January 24

    Notwithstanding the fact that Sprint was the first U.S. carrier to announce that it will carry the “self-healing” LG G Flex smartphone, AT&T has pushed itself ahead of the proverbial curve by announcing today that it will offer G Flex pre-orders starting January 24th. That’s a full week before Sprint is due to take its G Flex pre-orders on January 31st. AT&T is offering the G Flex smartphone for $299 with a two year contract. Customers have the option to purchase the smartphone on the carrier’s 12 and 18 month Next plans, they will have to pay $34.75 and $26.74 per month, respectively.

    Announced last year, the G Flex has made quite a name for itself, thanks in part to the 6-inch 1,280×720 pixel resolution OLED curved display. It has a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quadcore processor under the hood coupled with 2GB of RAM. Customers will be able to get up to 32GB of onboard storage, apart from a 13 megapixel rear camera, 2.1 megapixel front camera, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a 3,500mAh battery. AT&T is yet to reveal exactly when it will start delivering the G Flex to customers to place pre-orders on the 24th. Those who wish to go the “uncarrier” route will have to wait on T-Mobile to reveal the release date for its G Flex variant.

    Verizon Shared Data Plans Get New Tier Tomorrow

    Verizon Shared Data Plans Get New Tier Tomorrow

    Up till now the lowest customers could pay for a Verizon share data plan was $40, which got them 500MB of data per month. Big Red is going to add a new tier tomorrow which will be offered for both smartphone and feature phone users. The new Verizon shared data plan offers 250MB for $20 per month and it can be coupled with a $30 per month feature phone basic plan or with the $40 smartphone access monthly fee. The carrier says that this new tier will only be available for a limited time, though it hasn’t clarified just for how long this new plan is going to be offered.

    In this day and age, smartphones are very popular. For most smartphone users, 250MB of data is peanuts. Power users can blow through that in less than a day, Verizon estimates that an average user on its network uses between 1 and 2GB of data every month. So in order to avoid Big Red’s $15 overage charge for every 200MB that exceeds the bucket, customers will be better off with a tier that offers more data for a higher monthly fee. AT&T has a similar offering, the lowest data plan available costs $25 and brings 300MB per month, though that too might prove to be inadequate for the connected smartphone user.
