Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE Speedtest

“But officer, I didn’t know that I was doing 90 in a 60 zone!” Throw that excuse out of the window, as there is no need to apologize for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus that has been tested to play nice with Verizon’s 4G LTE network. It seems that the video which you can see after the jump posted some pretty impressive figures, where the user’s area peaked at around […]


Verizon Wireless trademarks hologram

I must admit that between the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D, I prefer the former’s 3D display as it seems more real and vivid, although I myself am a HTC diehard. Ah well, love goes beyond mere looks and capabilities I guess, and at least it allows me to throw my weight behind HTC and support them in their quest for better smartphones! That aside, it seems […]

Verizon Wireless lets you opt-out of ad-targeting effort

It is nice to hear that companies still respect your privacy, as with the case of Verizon Wireless who recently sent a rather polite email to their subscribers that just about all the stuff that they do on their phones will be used to target them with ads.

Verizon announces Samsung Stratosphere

Ah, the rather elusive Samsung Stratosphere. I guess we’re something like journalists for National Geographic in our efforts to hunt down the latest and greatest news, save for the fact that we’re dealing with the world of tech instead of animals and wildlife. Well, we’ve already seen the leaked specifications for the Samsung Stratosphere, not to mention having its manual sneak out as well, so what better way to commemorate […]


Verizon iPhone 4S coming this October 14th

Verizon Wireless is up next in line to officially announce the iPhone 4S right after Sprint, and of course the terms and conditions would be pretty much the same – I guess it really boils down to which carrier you would like to place your hard earned dollars with, where the 8GB iPhone 4S starts from $99.99 onwards, going all the way to $399 for the 64GB model – all […]


Verizon gets greener with Ford cargo vans running on natural gas

Companies that go green these days tend to gain the thumbs up from the general public, and Verizon Wireless is one of them by adding another 13 Ford cargo vans to their Florida fleet. Hopefully it isn’t a bad omen of sorts (the number 13), but all the 13 Ford cargo vans have been converted to run on compressed natural gas in order to meet the company’s goal to have […]

If you happen to reside in the US, chances are you own a mobile subscription to one of the traditional “Big Four” of mobile carriers – AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile.

Verizon Wireless $50 Unlimited Prepaid Plan

Prepaid plans tend to be more expensive in the long run when you consider the amount of usage with the money you have to pay per minute, and Verizon Wireless intends to help those who are on a tight budget and yet need unlimited data on a prepaid plan – hence announcing their $50 unlimited voice and data prepaid plan. This plan will definitely have Sprint and T-Mobile’s prepaid options […]
