    Verizon Offers Same-Day Delivery for Online Purchases

    Until now, getting the latest Verizon device as quickly as possible required a visit to your nearest Verizon retailer–but not any more. Place your order by 10am on a weekday and it will arrive no later than 7pm that same day; the service comes at a $19.99 cost, and the pilot program is currently only available in Philadelphia–though it is set to also roll out to New York City, San Francisco, Dallas, and Pittsburgh in the not-so-distant future. I don’t know what kind of premium most of you would be willing to pay for same-day delivery of your mobile device, but to us, $19.99 seems like one heck of a bargain.

  • Halo: Spartan Assault Now Available on Verizon Windows Phones and Windows 8/RT Computers

    Halo: Spartan Assault Now Available on Verizon Windows Phones and Windows 8/RT Computers

    It’s finally here! We got to play this on the E3 show floor this year, and I was very impressed. I’m a big fan of dual-stick arcade style shooters, and I can’t  think of a better world to set one in than Halo. Spartan Assault features 25 levels, highlighting some of your favorite Halo vehicles and weapons. The game was designed around touch screen controls, but support has been included for mouse+keyboard users. That’s a very nice touch so non-touchscreen Windows 8 users aren’t left out in the cold. I’ve played on both, and controls are very tight. For Windows Phone players, the game is currently a Verizon exclusive, but 343 Industries has announced that H:SA will go wide in August. In the meantime, you’ll just have to watch as players on Big Red occupy most of the leader-board standings I suppose… Grab it from the Windows App Store! $6.99 […]

    Verizon Galaxy S III Owners! Go Update Your Phone!

    VZW Galaxy S III owners, you’ve got a nice surprise waiting for you. There’s a massive update being rolled out right now, and among all the usual “bug fixes” and “system improvements,” there’s a really tasty update borrowed from the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4. Yup. You lucky GS3 owners can now utilize Samsung’s proprietary split-screen tech, allowing you to use two apps at the same time! Probably one of my favorite features on any non-Nexus device, and it’s all yours now. Go live it up! Also on board is improved NFC and Hotspot performance, plus you now have direct carrier billing options when purchasing items off of Google Play. Check your settings to see if your GS3 has been graced with Big Red’s approval. Via Verizon Wireless
