Do you want more form your carrier? Sure you do. T-Mobile has done a great job at giving more while stripping away the unnecessary bits, and it seems Verizon is following suit — in their own way.

Verizon Wireless launched a same-day delivery option several months back. The service arrived as a pilot program, and initially was only available in a few limited markets.

How satisfied are you with your mobile service provider? If you’re an AT&T customer, the numbers show you’re pretty happy, at least more than the competition.

It almost sounded too good to be true when we heard rumors that an LTE version of the Nexus 7 bearing Verizon's stamp is well on its way, but now we're seeing the real deal. Sort of. A pair of leaked photos have surfaced depicting the Nexus 7 LTE boxes safely stowed away in a Verizon stockroom somewhere.
The Sprint/T-Mobile acquisition has a few nuances that make it attractive. According to T-Mobile CEO John Legere, it helps challenge Verizon and AT&T’s ability to acquire spectrum at auction by creating a third carrier big enough to challenge them.
