Sprint and T-Mobile accused by AT&T of offering Wi-Fi calling without a green light from the FCC

AT&T SVP James Cicconi complained today that Sprint and T-Mobile have started offering Wi-Fi calling without receiving the necessary green-light from the FCC. At the heart of the issue is the TTY (teletypewriter) service used by some with a hearing disability, to type out phone calls. AT&T says that neither Sprint nor T-Mobile received a waiver from the FCC for TTY support. The service does not always work on Wi-Fi.

On the other hand, AT&T developed an alternative to TTY called RTT (real-time text). The carrier says that it filed for a temporary waiver back in June, so that RTT …

iOS 9 comes with a feature (Wi-Fi Assist) that might be eating your cellular data, here’s how to disable it

iOS 9, being an evolutionary step in Apple’s mobile OS, comes with a wealth of features that greatly expand the feature mix of Apple’s operating system. Low Power mode, Siri’s gained proactive powers, and the numerous performance improvements are just some of the more important iOS 9 highlights, but there are many others that hardly received any attention.
One of these is Wi-Fi Assist, a new iOS 9 feature that sounds pretty handy on paper, but might be secretly stabbing a large portion of users in the back. What this feature does is basically switch to cellular data in case …

AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot reportedly stuffs extra ads into Web pages

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Stanford University computer scientist Jonathan Mayerwas recently Web browsing at a U.S. airport when he noticed there were too many online advertisements. A partnership between Apple and a credit card processing company could add local retailers — even food The website for Stanford, for example, displayed a pop-up ad for a 60 percent discount on jewelry. The Federal Communications Commission website appeared to be advertising ladies’ boots. An example of an ad said to be injected over the FCC’s website while on an AT&T free airport Wi-Fi hotspot. “The web had sprouted ads,” wrote Mayer on his blog. “Lots of them, in places they didn’t belong.” The Wi-Fi hotspot he was using at Dulles Airport near Washington, D.C., is run by AT&T, he said. Before boarding, Mayer wrote he analyzed the Web traffic to figure out what was happening. The hotspot was interfering with non-encrypted Web traffic and displaying on pages that were not affiliated with the website. It’s often referred to as “injecting” ads and is a somewhat controversial practice. The platform that was injecting the ads comes from a small company called RaGaPa, Mayer wrote. RaGaPa adds an advertising style sheet into HTTP traffic. If a Web browser […]

LG G Watch R receives update to add Wi-Fi capabilities

As expected, LG has started to send out updates to the LG G Watch R. The Android Wear powered smartwatch has a round dial, which explains the “R” in the name of the device.  Back in May, LG said that it would update the LG G Watch R so that the timepiece could have Wi-Fi connectivity. LG has apparently begun the process of disseminating the new files.

One of our loyal readers, who happens to live in Malaysia, sent us photographs of his LG G Watch R after the installation of the update. As you can see from the images, there is now a “Wi-Fi settings” option and a listing of Wi-Fi hotspots …

Wi-Fi calling coming to certain Apple iPhone models running iOS 9 on Rogers and Fido

Why should AT&T users have all of the fun of using Wi-Fi calling on their iOS 9 powered iPhone? As it turns out, if you live north of the border in Canada, both Rogers and its Fido subsidiary will also be offering Wi-Fi calling to iPhone users running iOS 9. If this sounds familiar, it is because Rogers promised lat year that Wi-Fi calling would be available with iOS 8, but could not make it happen.

The speculation is that last year Rogers had problems with calls getting handed off from cellular to Wi-Fi. That is not supposed to be an issue this time around. Documents obtained by Mobile …

In-flight airplane Wi-Fi is vulnerable to hackers

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Wi-Fi in the sky isn’t a vague thought any more. As in-flight airplane Wi-Fi becomes more of a commonplace, the risk of cyber-criminals targeting unsuspecting travellers is even more. With so many passengers crammed up into one system, it is no less than a hackers paradise. Routehappy, a service known to rank flight amenities revealed earlier this year that passengers on US airlines now have a 2/3 chance of getting in-flight Wi-Fi on all the miles they fly. The report adds that domestic in-flight Wi-Fi has grown 1,600-fold since July 2013, and the expansion is obviously driven by consumer demand. While travellers look to satiate their Internet needs even while travelling, some malicious minds are working to hack into their accounts. “If you pay bills, write work emails, or shop online, a hacker with only modest skills has a chance of getting your data,” points out VentureBeat. According to the report, one of the common mistakes by people is terming the Wi-Fi network as ‘Home’ when they are asked if it is a Home, Work or Public connection. Users choosing Home tell their computer that the files can be shared with everyone on the Wi-Fi network. This doesn’t mean those […]
