we knew was just around the corner, the FCC and US carriers have agreed on guidelines for unlocking devices. The changes are voluntary, and give consumers a better concept of their rights, moving forward. These guidelines could be considered a loophole for both consumers and carriers on a previous ruling regarding unlocking our phones by the Library of Congress.
may have come to an agreement on device unlocking. Reports now suggest that both carriers and the FCC have agreed, in principle, to a method for notifying customers of their rights regarding unlocking devices.

Samsung's kill-switch anti-theft measure that could help lessen the incidents of smartphone thefts in the country? This is the question that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has put before five US carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
AT&T is also said to be interested, and has as much buying power as does T-Mobile. Verizon, who agreed to relinquish the spectrum when they acquired another block, might now be selling.

AT&T recently announced some new plans. These new plans favored users with a contract-free device by giving a monthly discount. Moving forward, it looks like AT&T is going to be further changing gears. There has been some recent talk about how they may reduce device subsidies and start shifting customers to a place where they use a device they own, or one they finance.
words between AT&T and T-Mobile have been fairly common these days, it looks like T-Mobile had some words about the recent AT&T Mobile Share announcement.
T-Mobile might be positioning themselves to purchase that spectrum — said to be worth about $4 billion — but they may have company.
AT&T has announced some changes to the Mobile Share Value plans. These changes will be going into effect as of December 8th and they will be available for new and existing AT&T customers.
