Now AT&T Mobile Share plan subscribers can send unlimited text, picture or video messages overseas. 190 countries are included in the new offering at no additional charge. The move by AT&T comes hot on the heels of similar plan changes by T-Mobile.

Many jailbreak fans are anxiously awaiting the release of Intelliborn’s flagship lock screen tweak for iOS 7. The developer has teased that Intelliscreen X 7 will be worth the wait, and has now launched a preview video and screenshots of what’s to come.
Intelliscreen has been around for some time, with previous versions integrating flawlessly into the iPhone notification center and lock screen. The tweak is on a short list of reasons to jailbreak iOS, and has been featured as a must-have jailbreak tweak on iOS 6.
Here’s the scenario: it’s a critical moment in the iOS game you’ve been playing for weeks. Just as you approach the end of the final level, the game stops mid-action and a pop-up tells you the battery is at 20 percent. So much for any momentum in the game, at least the iPhone battery status is clear.
This issue can be avoided with the free tweak PowerBanners on a jailbroken iOS device. PowerBanners is a simple solution to the problem of low power app interruptions. Once installed, low power alerts at 20 and 10 percent battery life will display as a banner notification without stopping the current app.
App switcher cards are convenient, but what if they could be accessed directly from the iPhone lock screen? RocketLauncher makes this possible on jailbroken devices, adding app previews and icon access to the lock screen in style.
Once installed, RocketLauncher works using tap an hold gesture on the lock screen. This will bring up the app icons and preview cards, which will launch upon selection. Of course, if a passcode is enabled the passcode lock keypad will appear before the app is launched.
Heavy Spotify users will enjoy a new jailbreak tweak appropriately named SpotiSearch. With this mod installed on the iPhone, looking for Spotify tracks is as simple as entering a search term in the default iOS 7 Spotlight search.
A swipe from top to bottom on the home screen reveals the Spotlight search field. Integrating Spotify results is achieved by installing SpotiSearch from Cydia and configuring a few options in the settings.
Disney's new movie streaming app for iOS devices allows users to watch Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies without a Wi-Fi or cellular connection.
Disney Anywhere subscribers can access their already purchased movies, buy new titles or redeem their Disney digital copies without leaving the app. All you need to do is signup, and connect your Disney account to your already existing iTunes account. You will then be able to download your movies to any iOS device for offline viewing, and purchase films directly from Disney's growing collection of digital videos.
Best Buy has been offering a lot of deals on Apple products the last few months, and today it has announced one of its best deals since the launch of the iPhone 5s. The retailer is offering "a minimum $150 Best Buy gift card when you trade in any working iPhone 5 or iPhone 4s and purchase an iPhone 5s 16GB for just $1 with a 2-year agreement".
The deal is in-store only and quickly ends on March 1, 2014, so you only have two days to take advantage. Your iPhone 4s or iPhone 5 must be in good working condition, meaning it powers on, has no water damaged and no cracked display. You are also responsible for removing any data from your device before trading it in. The fine print also states, "must use gift card toward the purchase of your iPhone 5s with 2-year agreement," but it doesn't say it has to be a 16GB model (You can read all the fine print here). This means you should also be able to put your $150 gift card towards a 32GB model, which would make it only $100. Just make sure you call ahead to check if your local Best Buy has the phone you want in stock, and that they're participating in the trade-in program, before you make any trips.
