  • We have already known for some time that AT&T was planning to upgrade its 3G network in a big way over the coming months but many industry insiders did not figure the upgrade would be as big of an improvement as tech websites Engadget and Gizmodo are reporting.  At a recent Reuters event in New York City AT&T’s Operations CEO John Stankey mentioned that AT&T is going to more than double the speeds of its current 7.2 Mbps 3G network by the end of the year.



    While AT&T has made significant improvements to their network in the past few months it is not expected to reach speeds anywhere near T-Mobile’s 21Mbps network.  Although I am sure that many Unlocked Quickfire  AT&T customers would be delighted if the network were to reach speeds of 14.4Mbps as expected by this announcement.


    AT&T’s network is notorious for being spotty and slow in major cities.  If this latest announcement is accurate AT&T’s network should see a great improvement and users of their 3G network will be greeted with a much better user experience.  With Sprint set to come out with their 4G network in the coming months AT&T had to do something to address their sometimes shaky 3G network.  This improvement that is expected to double the speeds of their network is better than expected.  If AT&T is able to double the speed of their 3G network I would expect more people to purchase Unlocked Smartphone with this cellular network leader.  Their upgraded network would be one of the best in the United States if this plan actually comes to fruition.  Hopefully they can complete this upgrade ahead of schedule so we do not have to wait until the end of the year to see these increased speeds.

  • Eventhough AT&T’s own Ralph de la Vega mentioned all the way back in November 2008 that you would be able to tether your iPhone to your personal computer and use it as a modem “soon” it looks like we are still quite a ways away from seeing this functionality.  Even with many iPhone carriers around the world deploying this tethering feature as soon as Apple had it ready it seems that AT&T’s silence is saying more than they want it to.  Tech website Engadget reached out to AT&T and received this feedback concerning iPhone tethering on the AT&T network:

    "We understand that there is great interest in tethering but cannot provide any details at this time. We know that iPhone users love their devices and mobile broadband, and that they're likely to embrace tethering just as they have other features and apps – by using it a lot. iPhone tethering has the potential to exponentially increase traffic, and we need to ensure that we're able to deliver excellent performance for the feature – over and above the increases in data traffic we're already seeing – before we will offer the feature."


    While it does make sense for AT&T to ensure their network can handle the increased load that would accompany iPhone users being able to use their phone as a modem for their personal computers they better hurry up and figure out a solution quickly or risk losing business customers to Verizon.  Verizon recently announced that their Palm Mobile Hotspot app would be a free add on with the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus that is sure to draw the attention of many business customers and frequent travelers that would benefit from being able to use their mobile device as a mobile hot spot while on the road.

  • When it comes to wireless carriers and wireless data one might think that AT&T transmits to largest amount of wireless data.  Well if this is the case then you might find the results of a recent study published by ABI Research to be quite interesting.  According to their study ABI Research says Verizon is actually the largest provider of wireless data with Sprint coming in second also beating out AT&T.


    The two companies, Verizon and Sprint, combined to handle 63% of all wireless data in 2009.  This 63% equates to 16 billion MB more data than AT&T.  ABI claims these numbers have more to do with AT&T’s smaller 3G coverage and the prevalence of data cards on the two EV-DO networks.  However, ABI is predicting that AT&T will be able to overtake Sprint by 2012.


    The recent findings of this study by ABI Research are pretty interesting.  Like many others I would have expected AT&T to lead the way in wireless data sent with the iPhone and growing list of smartphones that they offer.  Apparently the type of coverage a network can provide can have a huge impact on the amount data that is transmitted via their network.  As we all know AT&T’s network can be unreliable at times so it would make perfect sense that Verizon and Sprint would be able to send more data through their network.


    Deal of the week


    With plans already under way to improve their wireless network AT&T is taking to necessary steps when it comes to having a leading wireless network.  When all of these changes are in place I expect AT&T’s wireless data numbers to increase substantially as they are likely to attract new unlocked cell phone customers with a better cell phone network.

  • The odds that the Samsung Galaxy S will soon find a home in the US have skyrocketed recently with the FCC awarding certification for the newest smartphone from Samsung.  The Galaxy S is set to support the AT&T friendly 3G bands and would represent a huge shot in the arm to AT&T’s Android offerings which is currently limited to the Motorola BACKFLIP.  While it is not 100% certain that the Galaxy S is headed for AT&T this is what many mobile device experts are forecasting for this new phone.

    The Samsung Galaxy S is supposed to be one of the best Android devices when it finally hits the US market.  The fact that it is more than likely coming to the AT&T network will be welcomed news for all of the AT&T customers who have been patiently waiting for some other Android devices to hit the market.  Since AT&T currently only carries one Android device at the moment the Galaxy S is sure to be a huge hit when it finally arrives in the US.


    The Samsung Galaxy S is set to come with the Android 2.1 OS and be one of the most popular devices on the market.  This announcement that the FCC has awarded the Galaxy S certification means that this device is that much closer to being released in the US market.  I know that I am personally excited to see what all of the buzz has been about regarding the Galaxy S.  Being a huge fan of some of the other Android phones I am sure that I will not be disappointed when I am finally able to get my hands on one of these Galaxy S devices from Motorola.

  • One of the most common complaints among iPhone users is the effectiveness of the AT&T wireless network. Many users in the larger cities have reported issues connecting to the AT&T network and have thus had issues using their iPhones from time to time. While these complaints are relatively few and far between they certainly do exist. If you are one of the iPhone customers who have experienced such issues then you should be pleased to hear the news that AT&T and Apple have been working together since late 2009 trying to come up with ways for the iPhone Unlocked Phone to put less strain on the company’s wireless network.

    AT&T sent some wireless network experts to Apple in 2009 to try and find ways to reduce the amount of strain that the iPhone causes for the AT&T network. The companies managed to work together and Apple invented new technologies that changed the way the iPhone connects with AT&T’s cell towers. Based on these meetings the iPhone now puts less stress on the network when checking for text messages and when it searches the area for towers to connect to. AT&T has also taken measures to improve their network as well. AT&T continues to tweak their cell tower configurations and adding cell sites as a part of a 100 day improvement plan.
    As an avid Unlocked iPhone user I can attest to just how annoying connectivity issues can be when using your iPhone in some of the major metropolitan areas. It makes me very happy as a consumer to know that AT&T and Apple are taking the necessary steps to alleviate any problems their customers may be having with their products and putting for all of the effort to produce a more enjoy service.

  • One of the more exciting booths at the recent CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas was the booth set up by AT&T.  AT&T took advantage of the CTIA Wireless convention to showcase the new U-Verse mobile service and the corresponding app.  The app that is set for release on the Apple iPhone will allow customers to watch content from their U-Verse DVR home setup directly on their mobile device.  Customers will also be able to browse television schedules and set recordings for their home DVR.  Then those videos can then be streamed to either a mobile phone or a connected laptop.


    AT&T has long allowed customers to remotely program their DVR but not the carrier is showcasing the streaming capabilities of the U-Verse Mobile service.  While pricing and specific availability for the new U-Verse app have not been released AT&T has made it clear that the app will not be exclusive to the iPhone.  This service is expected to be released later this year and is sure to be a hit with all of AT&T’s U-Verse subscribers.



    AT&T’s new U-Verse app is just another example of the fantastic advancements we are making with our mobile devices.  It should be pretty amazing to have the capabilities to record your favorite television shows or movies in your home and be able to take those programs with you wherever you go with your mobile device.  This can be the perfect app for those of us who are regularly on the go and do not have time to sit around and watch television.  We can just record the shows that we would like to see and watch them whenever we want wherever we want on our unlocked mobile devices.  This is one of the newest apps that I am really looking forward to its release.

  • After a much anticipated wait Palm finally announced that their top two mobile phones will be coming to the AT&T network.  The Pre Plus and Pixi Plus will be making their way to AT&T’s network in the “coming months.”  These are two of the best phones that Palm has to offer and is surely to excite all AT&T customers.


     The Pre Plus will be similarly equipped to its Verizon counterpart and will come with 16GB of storage, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  The Pixi will be very similar as well as it is expected to have 8GB of storage, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  Both devices are expected to support AT&T’s new address book service as a synergy sync option and will have free auto-conntect access to the carrier’s WiFi +20,000 hotspots.  These devices are also set to come in a variety of colors including a blue back plate in addition to the standard black and other swapable colors.


    Palm Cell Phones


     Both of these devices appear to be pretty affordable for most consumers.  The Pre Plus is expected to be available for $149.99 and the Pixi Plus at a deep discount of $49.99 (with a $100 mail in rebate and two year contract.)  The official announcement of these two Palm phones being available on the AT&T network is expected to take place this week at the US’s largest wireless convention, CTIA.


    Hopefully at the CTIA convention we will get a more concrete time frame for these mobile devices to be rolled out.  Right now they are set to be released in the “coming months.”  Here is to hoping that those “coming months” are much shorter than we think they will be.  It will also be interesting to see what kind of affect moving to the AT&T network will have on Palm.  I expect this will be a great business decision and dramatically increase their sales.

  • AT&T Gets The LG Arena
    Posted on February 24, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    AT&T gets the LG Arena to add to its family of LG cousins. The LG has been offered as a LG unlocked cell phone outside of the United States until this recent announcement. This great phone contains power packed three-inch touch screen technology with many applications.


    Included is a camera that has 5.0 mega pixels, auto focus, and the video capture capabilities to upload and pass pictures and videos around various social networking sites. With a touch of a finger you can locate photos and videos or create rapid-fire photo sequences to capture more that a moment of the great game you are at. LG’s S-Class with 3D user interface touts WiFi and built in GPS technology to get you where you are going. The touch multimedia wheel can keep downloads quickly accessible to listen in the Dolby Mobile surround sound technology.


    Although this is not a smart phone it has all the bells and whistles for a social networking phone, The Intuitive browser offers email and texting opportunity with lightning speed touch screen capabilities. Included are the phonebook, calendar, and easy to use alarm. For those of us that are technologically impaired the touch screen alarm clock is a great feature, with in sync time settings, the wake up call will keep us on time. An FM transmitter is included to tune into any games or watch them on the TV out connect option. Bluetooth technology and the speakerphone give no excuse for hands free operations.


    AT&T is offering a 7-day try the phone out offer to let you see and experience the ease of operation. If you have been waiting for this phone to get to the states the announcement has just been made and the phone is waiting for you at any ATT retail stores or online. As AT&T gets the LG Arena unlocked, the positioning of other phones joining the team will be an interesting play to watch.
