Feb 26, 2014 AT&T lights up LTE in 12 markets across the nation, brings 4G to coverage to 300,000 more

The build-outs of the LTE networks of AT&T and Verizon in the United States have hit the point where they're covering smaller cities in 4G radio signals. In fact, just today Ma Bell announced that they're flipping the switch to turn on AT&T LTE coverage in 12 municipalities around the United States, though the largest in this batch is Bismark, North Dakota, population: 65,000. There used to be a time when a single new LTE network meant millions were covered — now it takes a dozen new markets to cover a mere 300,000. We're on the long tail of the LTE coverage build-out now. The full list of new AT&T LTE coverage follows.

Feb 25, 2014 AT&T rolls out unlimited international messaging for texts, pictures, and video

If you happen to be on one of AT&T's Mobile Share plans and have friends, relatives, acquaintances, coworkers, or just people you want to message with that happen to live outside of the United States, then we've got good news: AT&T is making international messaging free on February 28th.

In addition to the free messaging, AT&T is rolling out reduced international calling rates. The new World Connect Value package that includes 1¢ per minute calls to "over 35 countries, including Canada and Mexico." Those other countries are located exclusively in the Caribbean and Central and South America, and tiny nations like St. Pierre and Miquelon are counted among them.

Feb 24, 2014 AT&T adds international LTE roaming in Spain, France, Japan, Australia, Singapore, and 8 other countries
30 Comments
Peek

Late last year saw AT&T adding international LTE roaming in Canada and the UK, and today they're adding 13 more nations to the list. If the added services are treated in the same way as AT&T's deals with EE in the UK and Rogers in Canada, the rates charged for the "Data Global" add-ons won't change with the addition of LTE services, though AT&T did not say if that would be the case in their press release. AT&T put a full list of the countries where you'll be able to get LTE speeds while roaming starting today:

Today, AT&T has expanded its international LTE footprint to now include Spain, France, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, Guam, Hong Kong and Antigua & Barbuda. AT&T is committed to providing its customers a wider global footprint to enjoy LTE data speeds. In fact, AT&T currently has agreements to allow for LTE roaming in over 200 countries.

It's worth noting that there are still hurdles to getting LTE roaming working. AT&T and the LTE carriers in Canada use different LTE bands, so it may be hit or miss whether or not your specific phone will be able to roam onto LTE while abroad. Thankfully, modern smartphones are consolidating more and more LTE bands into single devices (manufacturing is just easier that way), so your chances are much higher if you have a fairly new phone.

Jan 03, 2014 AT&T dishing out up to $450 for convert T-Mobile users

In what seems like a never ending battle between the two carriers, AT&T is now offering up to $450 for T-Mobile users who switch services. Starting today, AT&T users can trade in their old devices to receive a promo card of up to $250 and also an additional $200 per line when changing their service to an AT&T next plan, buying a phone at full price or activating a device they currently own.

Overall it's not such a bad deal if you have T-Mo service in your area. Also a pretty bold move by AT&T. Check out the press release below for more.

Jul 16, 2013 AT&T announces 'AT&T Next' - Offers customers yearly upgrades on payment plans

T-Mobile created a ton of headlines recently when they announced their new JUMP upgrade program for customers. Not one to stand by and watch the competition get ahead, AT&T has now announced 'AT&T Next', a new way of financing and upgrading handsets. As part of Next, AT&T customers will have the ability to upgrade their handset with no money down every 12 months assuming you sign up for a payment plan with your device from the beginning.

In short, AT&T will now allow you to buy a new device on a payment plan with no down payment but you'll be paying the full, unsubsidized price over equal monthly payments for 20 months. After you're 12 months into that payment plan, you can opt to trade in your undamaged, working device and receive a brand new one with again no down payment and the remaining 8 months of your previous device payments will be wiped out.

Jun 27, 2013 Digging into how carriers roll out BlackBerry OS updates
113 Comments
Peek

Last week, AT&T cut short the rollout of a 10.1 update to the BlackBerry Z10. This is no doubt frustrating for AT&T customers who only have to glance sideways to their Z10-toting buddies on T-Mobile who are enjoying a generous batch of new features. So what’s the deal?

The short answer is that BlackBerry had pushed out the update before AT&T had completed their technical approval process (which is why BlackBerry was the one issuing the statement about it and not AT&T). It sounds like the snag was based on a process formality, and not an issue of some disastrous bug that required a clawback. It's entirely possible that the exact same update will go public with no changes after AT&T's done looking at it. Ultimately, very few users even had the chance to download the update since push notifications weren’t sent out, meaning it was only available to those that had recently rebooted their device or happened to hit their monthly update check during a small window.

Here’s what AT&T told us about their overall device testing process.

Jun 18, 2013 AT&T BlackBerry Q10 available June 21st for $199

AT&T has finally announced the availability of the BlackBerry Q10. The long-awaited device will be available in stores and online June 21st for $199 on a two-year contract.

This just leaves Sprint out of the Q10 game for the time being as AT&T joins both Verizon and T-Mobile with the Q10 in the US.

The Q10 went up for preorder with AT&T not too long ago and devices are slated to be shipped today, so if you snuck in a preorder already, you may very well land a Q10 before launch day. If you don't want to wait another 3 days, you can still preorder online as well

Jun 14, 2013 AT&T ramping up for the BlackBerry Q10 - Demo units arrive, employees receive devices

Although AT&T has been rather silent about their actual release date for the BlackBerry Q10, it's looking as though it's not all that far off now. We've received quite a few emails today alone letting us know that demo units have arrived and just like the BlackBerry Z10, some employees are being handed units for personal use. Rumor has it pegged for June 21st, but we'll see how that pans out.

Preorders for the device are still underway having begun back on June 5th with pricing set at $200 with the usual 2-year contract. At this point, it's looking as though Sprint will be the very last carry to offer the device, assuming they don't come from out of nowhere and magically start shipping the device before AT&T.

That's right AT&T fans - the BlackBerry Q10 will be available for preorder starting tomorrow, June 5th. With T-Mobile being the first to push out the Q10 and Verizon not too far behind, AT&T may take in the prize for third as Sprint is nowhere to be seen. 

AT&T has released a statement noting that the Q10 will be available for preorder at att.com/q10 starting tomorrow. The Q10 will retail for $199 on contract - an official release date will hopefully be available soon.
