Sprint takes aim at AT&T, offers DirecTV customers a full year of free service

Sprint has announced its latest bid to pull customers away from one of its biggest rivals, and it's a doozy. To "celebrate" the AT&T and DirecTV merger, Sprint is offering DirecTV customers a full year of service for free. The plan that Sprint is offering up for free includes 12 months of unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of data per line on up to five lines. While this obviously isn't for the data-hungry, you can't beat free.

Additionally, Sprint says it will offer to buy out switching customers' current contracts and pay up to $300 per working phone. To take advantage of the deal — which starts on Friday, August 28, and runs through September 30 — those interested must show verification of their DirecTV account by either signing into their account while at a Sprint store or showing a copy of a recent bill.

Finally, there are a couple of catches with the deal. Customers are still responsible for paying for their devices, and they must also cover a one-time $36 activation fee, along with taxes and surcharges each month. Further, after the year is up, customers on this plan will be moved to a rate-per-line plan that runs from $50 for one line to $180 for five. Still, this is a pretty aggressive offer from the nations fourth-largest carrier, and an interesting way to combat AT&T's bundle offers.

CPW-Passport-Silver

Every so often I find myself heading over to the UK carriers and retailers websites - more than often to see who's 'not' selling BlackBerry 10 devices. Today I ended up with Carphone Warehouse who historically have been pretty loyal to BlackBerry. I was quite surprised when I hit up the BlackBerry Passport page as the two color options were not quite what I was expecting - Black or the new Silver Edition.

T-Mobile wants you to bring your BlackBerry to their network

Yes, it's true! Now that T-Mobile and BlackBerry have repaired their business relationship, T-Mobile has kicked off a bit of a campaign, letting BlackBerry customers know they're welcome to bring their BlackBerry smartphones to the uncarrier. Of course, there are some requirements such as the fact you need to purchase a qualifying plan, pick up a T-Mobile SIM and have a compatible unlocked BlackBerry, but those are all pretty standard things when bringing your own device to a carrier. In any case, it's nice to see this coming from T-Mobile. Now all they need to do to win some BlackBerry users love is push out some more updates with WiFi calling.

Seidio CONVERT Holster Combo with Holster

Throughout the years I have owned a plethora of cases. Some were thin and light, others were thick and bulky, and many fell somewhere in-between. One case that caught my eye was the Seidio CONVERT Case Holster Combo. Designed to accommodate whatever you throw at it, the design is geared towards a person's various needs. How you may ask? It is actually two cases in one, or rather what I like to call the SURFACE case on steroids, to provide the ultimate protection for your BlackBerry Classic.

As with many online services, BlackBerry 10 users need to rely on native developers to bring third party apps to the platform and they do a pretty good job with them too. If you're a Flickr user, you'll know there is no native option. Last year (2014) we reviewed an app that allows you to upload photos to your account. The app hasn't seen much update activity since then but it has seen an update recently that brings a couple of new features.
