T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS): Customers of T-Mobile’s prepaid cellular plans may be able to enjoy free tethering, according to rumors circulating on the company’s forums. While customers previously had to pay additional fees to enable tethering, several people said they have been able to receive the privilege for free on T-Mobile’s prepaid plans. This has led some to speculate that the move may be the latest part of T-Mobile’s plan to revolutionize wireless plans.
Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ): Verizon will be partnering with Glympse to develop an app that lets users send their location and other messages through a tablet or smartphone. The companies have said that the app will represent a major step in location technologies and that it will allow a definitive messaging program to let users communicate where they are in the middle of a conversation.
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T): A new phone by Samsung (SSNLF.PK), the ATIV S Neo, will be coming to AT&T. In a departure from AT&T’s decision not to carry the Samsung ATIV S, the wireless carrier will begin carrying the ATIV S Neo starting November 8. In addition, AT&T has provided a reasonable price point of $100 for the device when bought with a contract, which is $50 less than comparable plans from other carriers.
