  • 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:


    Apple iPhone 3GS 32GB Black Unlocked GSM Cellular Phone


    "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.

  • If you are currently in the market for a new cell phone you should look into Verizon Wireless’ Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus.  The mobile phone company has just announced a price reduction for two of their more popular phones.  The Pre Plus will drop to a price of $49.99 while the Pixi Plus will be even lower at $29.99.  If you are in the market for more than once cell phone these two devices also qualify for Verizon’s popular buy one get one free offer as well.  Of course both handsets will require a two year agreement to get these prices but at these prices that is a no brainer.  Also, to further entice consumers Verizon has dropped the price of the webOS mobile hotspot service to $0 (down from $40) for both new and current customers.  The mobile hotspot offer is not going to be advertised on the web right away however customers will be told of the free hotspot promotion when they purchase the other mobile devices.


    Palm Cell Phones


    This appears to be a fantastic deal that Verizon Wireless is offering.  The Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus are two of their more popular phones.  If you are on a budget and looking to get a great smartphone you certainly can not go wrong with either of these devices.  Throw in the fact that you can also get a free handset when you purchase one can lower the price dramatically if you were to split the costs with a friend or family member.  The addition of the mobile hotspot is just icing on the cake and truly makes this a deal that you can not pass up.

  • 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.

  • Vonage has recently announced that a new version of their Vonage Mobile app will be coming to the Android platform.  This new version of the Vonage Mobile app will only be available to Android users on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks.  Vonage Mobile allows customers to make voice over IP calls using a W-Fi network which can significantly reduce the costs of making international calls.


    When asked about the upcoming availability on Sprint and Verizon devices Vonage reps were unsure when those devices would be supported by the new app.  While the Vonage reps were unable to offer a timeline for those two networks they did mention that Vonage was looking to expand the product to more devices.  Reps would also not comment on the possibility of Verizon’s new deal with Skype being one of the reasons why this new Vonage app is not available on Verizon Wireless devices.  This new Vonage app is already available for iPhone OS devices which includes the iPod touch as well as BlackBerry devices



    While Vonage may not be that great of an alternative to long distance carriers for your land lines this app certainly is great news for people that are looking to lower the costs of their international phone bills.  As one of the leading VoIP companies around Vonage can offer you great service at an affordable price.  Being able to use Vonage’s services over a Wi-Fi network on your mobile device is an excellent addition to any new smartphone.  With the increase in popularity of Android devices it makes sense that Vonage would focus on getting a new mobile app available for those devices.  With the success they have seen from their iPhone and BlackBerry apps it will be no surprise when the Vonage Mobile app becomes a huge success for Android users as well.

  • Coming this spring Verizon Wireless consumers will have the chance to bill online content directly to their cell phone bills.  Verizon is set to utilize Danal’s BilltoMobile service that will allow mobile device users to charge any online content they download right to their Verizon bills.  A secure connection and integration between Verizon Wireless and Danal will provide features important to online consumers and merchants, including robust subscriber authentication and fraud protection, among others.


    The mobile payment service will feature a $25-per-month spending limit for these purchases, along with content and parental controls for individual accounts, giving account owners the ability to manage their BilltoMobile usage.  When available, customers with text messaging-enabled phones will be able to shop quickly, securely and conveniently for Verizon Wireless-approved content at online stores, including game sites, social networks and virtual worlds. Users will also be able to purchase subscriptions to popular online games.



    The BilltoMobile payment service is simple for consumers. To conduct a transaction, consumers click on the BilltoMobile button during checkout at a participating online Web site and then input their mobile numbers and mobile billing zip codes for subscriber authentication. A text message is then sent to consumers’ unlocked mobile phones with a one-time passcode. Once consumers input this passcode into the online checkout window, the transaction is completed. The entire process takes about 15 seconds, and there is no pre-registration or links to credit cards or bank accounts required.


    This sounds like a great addition to power unlocked cell phone users on the Verizon network.  The BilltoMobile program will offer consumers a safe and quick way to purchase products or online content directly from their mobile devices.  This is just another step in the direction of being able to use your mobile devices for much more things than just making phone calls and sending text messages.

  • On the heels of their recent announcement regarding the upcoming rollout of the highly anticipated 4G network Verizon Wireless’s CTO Anthony Melone has targeted next summer as the time frame for the carrier’s first LTE handset release.  While the aforementioned 4G network is expected to be ready by the end of this year all of us tech junkies will have to wait a little longer for the first unlocked cell phone handset.



    It should be well worth the wait though as these new mobile devices are expected to have the same downloading and uploading speed as your home computer.  In the current test markets in Boston and Seattle engineers were blown away by the results they were seeing which is a great sign for the possibilities to come.  Also, videos will be able to be seen in 1080p high definition which should really revolutionize the way people consume video content on their mobile devices.


    There is one bit of bad news that is expected to come with the awesome power of the new 4G network.  It appears that Verizon and even AT&T are headed down the path of eliminating unlimited data plans and moving to a tiered structure.  While it does make sense for these companies to charge people for the amount of data they download or even upload it is still a bummer that we finally get some great internet speeds on our mobile devices like the Blackberry Pearl but will have to pay more to fully enjoy them.

  • NFL Going To Verizon
    Posted on March 10, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    The NFL has just signed an agreement with Verizon wireless for a four year deal that will bring NFL Mobile to Verizon users.  This comes after Sprint decided that the price to carry the NFL sponsorship did not seem to be cost effective.  It should be online, right before the NFL draft that will be happening in April.  In conjunction with the deal, Verizon wireless will become the official NFL wireless provider.  This new app will enable users to keep track of their favorite teams no matter where they are especially on their BlackBerry Curve 8520 unlocked cell phone device.



    One of the favorites is going to be the NFL RedZone channel that will give you a look at all of the key plays and touchdowns from the Sunday games.  You will be able to watch live video from the Friday night and Thursday night football games from NBC.  You also get the NFL network channel that operates 365 days and 24 hours per day to get all of your football news and scores.  You also be able to get game highlights, as well as being able to check out some of the NFL films.  You will have live broadcasts on the radio for every game including the playoffs.  For all of you fantasy football enthusiasts, you will have access to unlimited information as well as news and player statistics.


    No NFL program would be complete without being able to get signature ring tones, graphics and getting NFL alerts that you have customized.  You can kick off this new program for Verizon by taking advantage of it for the upcoming draft.  You will not miss any of the exciting news of the draft because the program will give you a live feed of the draft as it happens right on your BlackBerry Storm 2 or other unlocked cell phone.  It will also have tons of news; lots of blogs that will let you keep track of everyone that is picked moment by moment.  No pricing has been released yet, but it should be available very soon.

  • Verizon Class Action Suit
    Posted on March 2, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    Verizon wireless has received notification that they are being sued in a class action lawsuit in the state of New Jersey.  This class-action suit from the law firm of Goldman Scarlato & Karon, P.C. has been filed on behalf of cell phone users that do not have smart phones.  They are claiming that these users have been charged for data transfer services that they have never actually used.  This is in regard to customers being charged accidentally the $1.99 per megabyte for accessing the web or using any other data services.  Verizon stated that these charges are only access to those users that stray away from the Verizon home page and obtain other applications and services.  The lawsuit claims that Verizon has charged customers even though they have not accessed this type of service.  The lawsuit is looking to be able to return the money is improperly charged back to the customers.


    HTC Google Nexus One Black Unlocked GSM Cellular Phone


    In other news, the major United States carriers, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless, along with Google have begun to respond to the FCC in regard to the early termination fees that customers have to pay.  It has long known that these carriers as well as others have had extremely high early termination fees in order to cover the costs of the cell phone devices that they provide at a discount through their plans.  Google has stated that their $350 fee for customers that use the Nexus One and break their contract is fair.


    In the past, Nexus One users have had to actually pay early termination fees to both Google and T-Mobile.  They have begun to reduce some of these early termination fees and have actually lowered it to $150 for new T-Mobile customers.  The make your carriers also explained that they would be making sure that they fully disclose the early termination fees to all customers.  This is just one more reason why unlocked cell phones are probably one of the best ways to avoid the unnecessary fees from the major carriers in the United States.
