Verizon doesn’t want you to remember when it throttled the cellular data of first responders during the California wildfires.
Visible is a new Verizon-owned prepaid carrier, and it recently announced it will start selling iPhones at 0% APR.
As for what Visible is actually offering, you pay $40 a month for unlimited text, voice, data and hotspot usage at speeds of up to 5 Mbps. There’s no contract, no extra fees and you manage everything through an app on your phone.
I’m tempted to sign up for Visible. Last year they reached out to me to test the service but I never heard back. Time to test it on my own.
Customers of Verizon Unlimited plans will get free, full Apple Music as a perk. This is for the Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans.
The bonus Apple Music should be launched in the next couple of days, according to the information that we received. Verizon is yet to make the announcement publicly, but the information comes from a source that has proved reliable in the past.
The carriers had already promised to stop selling customer location data back in June 2018. But a recent investigation showed they kept going.
The rollout of 5G connectivity is on its way, but when will consumers benefit? And just how fast will it really be?
5G connectivity is coming to the iPhone sometime in 2020, but some overheating issues need to be sorted out first.

Verizon recently throttled a fire department’s command and control vehicle in a pursuit of $2, and Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet have some thoughts about the propriety of such an action. They also wonder whether rumors of a new iMac mean we can start trusting Apple to update its Macs again, or if Lucy will just yank the ball away instead. They cap the show with a look at Netflix’s baby steps towards rebellion against Apple’s App Store cut for subscriptions.
Verizon has crawled ass-backwards into a PR nightmare of its own making after throttling firefighter bandwidth during an emergency in an effort to get $2.00 more per month.
John Martellaro and Dave Hamilton join Jeff Gamet to look at Verizon’s plans for 5G broadband in our homes and how that may work out.
Verizon has announced plans for a residential 5G service to be tested in four cities that includes an option for an Apple TV 4K. You’ll need a Verizon 5G modem and plan.
Starting Thursday, August 16 both new and existing customers on a Verizon Unlimited plan can take advantage of this offer.
It costs US$3.99/month and blocks advertising. But is it safe to use?
Later this year the carrier plans to launch 5G in Los Angeles and Sacramento.
Effective immediately, you can only activate an iPhone 6 or later with Verizon.
To whom and for what purpose? Everything from preventing credit card fraud to providing roadside assistance…or surveillance.
At the same time, the retailer is marking down the same models by up to US$150.
T-Mobile and Sprint agreed to a US$26.5 billion merger deal with plans to make the first truly nation-wide 5G cellular network.
