Verizon Wireless blocking apps and their updates in the Market

We all know that carriers allow or block certain applications to and from the market -- some for the better, and others for the worst like we have here. Obviously carrier specific apps like Verizon's NFL Mobile are only accessed by Verizon devices and are blocked to the rest. It now seems Verizon is taking this a step further and are blocking apps in the market, even ones you've already purchased.

Verizon Wireless Intros $20 Plan with 300MB Data for select regions

While a good deal is a good deal and not to be passed up this seems more like a gap between a real data plan and those feature phone plans. Today Verizon Wireless is launching a new back to school data plan for only $20 with 300mb of data connectivity when bundled with a new voice plan. The odd part is this is not widespread and only available starting in select Verizon regions, this may be a test run to start things off.

AT&T Verifies Data Throttling in Future, October 1st it Begins

It has begun! AT&T has officially reported that starting on October 1st, 2011, the top 5% of AT&T will start to see reduced speeds. Top users, in this case, meaning those who use inordinate amounts of data on a daily basis, downloading Star Wars all day long and listening to the Imperial March on Spotify. What AT&T plans to do about you wild and crazy data machines is to force choke you - and by force choke I of course mean throttle your data speeds, making you have slower uploads and slower downloads once you get to a certain point during the month when AT&T thinks you've simply had enough. AT&T made it clear today that it's not you average Americans that they're slipping their fingers around, it's the evil rebels using "12 times more data than the average of all other smartphone data customers."

Verizon Directs Employees How to Handle End of Unlimited Data Plans

We've got our hands on a retailer email sent out to at least SOME locations across the US, we're assuming basically all, this email detailing the way Verizon employees are to handle customers asking about the unlimited plans ending and tiered data plans beginning. What you'll see is an epic story filled with drama, intrigue, and lots of big capital letters for EMPHASIS. Verizon isn't going to have any red on its hands when all this is said and done, $30 a month slayed and massacred for ever and ever amen.

Mobidia My Data Manager keeps tabs on your data use

If you are on a data plan with your Android smartphone or tablet that isn't unlimited, you can spend a huge amount of money on data streaming and not even realize it until the bill comes in. A new app has been announced called the Mobidia My Data Manager. The app allows the mobile subscriber to viewer their data use for the month as a whole and see where they are using the most data.

HTC ThunderBolt Simultaneous Data and Voice Over 3G Confirmed, Again

When we first heard that the HTC ThunderBolt would support simultaneous data and voice over 3G on Verizon's network, we were a little skeptical. Verizon has been known, and knocked, for their lack of support of this feature and for it to come up out of no where from hardware on a phone, it left many wondering how HTC managed to do this.

80 Percent of Verizon Phones sold are Android, BlackBerry devices in steep decline

What better way to see Android's cannibalization of RIM's BlackBerry than a graph of Verizon's smartphone sales over the 20 months? All Things Digital points to data compiled by ITG Investment Research analyst Matthew Goodman that visually details the decrease in BlackBerry sales as the market becomes more sophisticated and varied. According to the data, 80 percent of smartphone sales were Android devices in which 46 percent were DROID branded. RIM sure has a growing issue on its hands as new devices compete with the business space in mobile sales. [Via All Things Digital]

Verizon’s 4G LTE Network Initial Impressions

One of the biggest players in the upcoming 4G wars is Verizon. Although their entrance into the 4G market is a bit late, behind T-Mobile and Sprint, it's certainly not disappointing. We have got our hands on the LG VL600 LTE Modem and have put the LTE network through some speed tests as well did an unboxing of the device.
