Why I’m On Strike At Verizon

Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam is baffled. Recently, he walked up to a picket line and told striking workers, “This makes no sense to anybody. To be honest, I’m not sure why you’re out here.”

Well, it makes sense to me. Let me explain why I’ve joined nearly 40,000 workers on strike from Massachusetts to Virginia.

For the past 16.5 years, I’ve worked as a Customer Service Representative at Verizon’s Customer Sales and Service office in Bloomsburg, PA. I take calls from customers and handle everything from setting up payment to transferring telephone service.

Those with the phone found it randomly freezing, with apps opening and closing as if the device had a mind of its own. The battery was running low too quickly, and using the phone became a frustrating experience.

The speculation was that the LG G3 would skip the last Lollipop update, and go straight to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And those with the LG G3 worried about how long they would have to put up with the poor performance that they were now receiving from the phone. …

Verizon pushes out security update to the Motorola DROID Turbo

With carriers working on beefing up the security of Android handsets, Motorola DROID Turbo users have been receiving a security update from Verizon over the weekend. Ever since the deadly Stagefright vulnerability was outed in July, carriers have been scrambling to send out updates to prevent hackers from taking control of the camera and microphone, and stealing content from Android smartphones.

Because Stagefright is said to have its origins in code found in the multimedia library used on Android ever since Android 2.2 (Froyo), 95% of active handsets powered by Google’s open source OS were …

Yes, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will work on Verizon and Sprint

Google today started taking pre-orders for the brand new Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X in select markets. In the US, the two new handsets can currently be ordered only via Google Store, unlocked, and it looks like they won’t be offered through any carriers.

Verizon is sending out a security update to the Samsung Galaxy Note5, the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.

Verizon interested in Dish Network’s spectrum, but not the whole company

For years, Dish Network has been linked to T-Mobile and Sprint as a possible buyer of the two mobile operators.

Today, speculation surrounding Dish Network has started up again, although this time Dish is rumored to be the target. The company said to have a ‘thing’ for Dish? Verizon Wireless.

While Big Red isn’t interested in buying all of Dish, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam says that his company is interested in working out some type of wholesale arrangement with the satellite television …
