AT&T has added a new monthly fee for all users that will earn the company millions of dollars. It isn't much, requiring subscribers to pay an additional $0.61 per month for what they're calling a "Mobility Administration Fee." Nickels and dimes folks, nickels and dimes.
AT&T GoPhone users can now get access to 4G speeds. This includes AT&T's HSPA+ and LTE networks, though it is provided the user has a supported handset. For now AT&T appears to have this aimed at those who already have a capable device and simply want to avoid signing a contract on something new. These new speeds are available at this time and will be available with the $65, $50 or $25 per month plans.
Samsung confirmed four additional GALAXY S 4 colors earlier this morning and it looks like one of those new colors will soon be launching with AT&T.

UK pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and while Samsung has also said the handset would be released for those in Europe and Russia, we haven't heard anything official in terms of a US release. With that in mind, recent rumors are suggesting the handset will be coming available with AT&T. While this may be good news for AT&T users looking for a massively oversized smartphone, there are some lingering questions.
AT&T lowered the price of the HTC First late last week and naturally, that had some questioning the success of the phone. To give a little background here, the HTC First was the first phone to launch with Facebook Home and it came available with AT&T on April 12. Basically, that is to say the handset had only been available for about a months time before that price cut arrived. The timing seems quick, however AT&T also lowered the price quite significantly. The HTC First went from $99.99 down to $0.99 on a two-year agreement.
Motorola's upcoming smartphone lineup. We've been waiting to see what Motorola and Google cook up together, and today that may have been revealed in an FCC filing. The device is being listed as the Motorola XT1058 with 4G LTE and headed to AT&T. Most likely this is the X-Phone (or XFON) and more details on why can be found below.
AT&T has a few new smartphone additions as of today. Or maybe more specific, AT&T has some updated models from earlier releases available as of today. The news includes the GALAXY S 4 which is now available in a 32GB model as well as the Stealth Black version of the HTC One and the LG Optimus G Pro. Anyway, as these are simply additions to previous releases, the specs and pricing may sound familiar to some.
