AT&T removes Google for Yahoo Search on Motorola Backflip

Posted in AT&T by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2010

AT&T’s first Android phone won’t be shipping with Google Search. Instead, the Motorola Backflip’s home screen will feature a Yahoo Search widget, and the browser will run Yahoo searches by default. In fact it will be the first Android device with Yahoo as the main search engine.

Obviously appeasing Apple is high on AT&Ts priority list. We can’t really see what else this move does. It just says hey, we love Apple and fear them. There are four other AT&T Android phones coming soon, and we wonder if they will follow suit.

AT&T’s latest Verizon attack ad

Posted in AT&T by Conner Flynn on December 6th, 2009


If you’re like us, you probably think that these constant ad battles between AT&T and Verizon are getting really old. Who can keep track anymore. Lawsuit is countered by lawsuit, then there’s a lull, then more ads slinging mud at each other.

Here’s AT&T’s latest. Another ad featuring Luke Wilson. The ad is all about the speed of AT&T’s network compared to Verizon. Why can’t they use this ad money and put it toward making their networks better? What’s next? The other half of the annoying Wilson brother duo rooting for the opposing team?

AT&T officially launches CruiseCast mobile TV service

Posted in AT&T by Shane McGlaun on June 3rd, 2009

cruisecast-sbOne of the things I remember most about road trips when I was a kid was that it only took about an hour before I was smacking my brother in the head as we drove down the road and dad was trying to reach over the seat to beat me. Things aren’t much different today; my kids last only about an hour on the road before things get rowdy.

Thankfully, today we have all sorts of entertainment devices for our cars to keep kids occupied. AT&T has announced the official launch of its CruiseCast mobile satellite TV service. The new service has launched with 19 different channels.

AT&T confirms cheaper data plan discussionsRalph de la Vega from AT&T has confirmed that the company has in fact been looking at lowering the cost of data plans. Instead of cutting the cost of unlimited access, the company plans to introduce lower priced plans with limited bandwidth.

acerone-sbIn Europe, the practice of subsidizing notebooks and netbooks on mobile carriers is very common. In the US, the practice is still relatively unknown. RadioShack offers a netbook bundled with mobile broadband, but it is one of the few such offers in the States.

AT&T GoPhone gets unlimited calling plan

Posted in AT&T by Shane McGlaun on May 11th, 2009

gophone-sbMost of us will agree that contracts required to get mobile phones today are not how we would prefer things work. I always wanted cellular service that worked like my old landline. I pay for what I use and if I don’t like the service, I change at will.

The closest we get to that sort of service with mobile phones are the pay-as-you-go plans like the AT&T GoPhone. AT&T has announced that the GoPhone now has an unlimited calling option that lets you call all you want for $3 per day.

Pantech BreezeThe smartphone market is booming and complex, feature packed devices like the iPhone and the G1 may catch the eye of fans of technology. However, there is a large portion of the handset market that cares nothing for all the geeky features and complexity of the average smartphone.

For the non-techie group of mobile phone users Pantech has announced a new black version of its Breeze handset. We first saw the Pantech Breeze in silver last year when it debuted at AT&T. The new handset is the same thing with a black case that may keep its looks longer than the silver version.

Posted in AT&T by Shane McGlaun on December 29th, 2008

iPhone 3GI was among the many who was hoping that the rumor that Walmart would be selling a $99 iPhone 3G was accurate. As it turned out Walmart did in fact get the iPhone 3G, but the price was only slightly less than other iPhone retailers.

However, your hopes of a $99 iPhone 3G aren’t completely dashed, at least not for a few more days. AT&T is currently offering refurbished iPhones while supplies last. The 8GB refurb handset will sell for the magic $99 number.
