Recognized Developers of XDA Usergroup Formed
You might recall several months ago we posted about a new initiative at XDA to give the valued developers of XDA additional privileges (more control over their threads, a bigger PM inbox, a custom title, and several others). We’ve now completed the process. Those that have applied should have received a PM by now. The vast majority of submissions were approved. For those that weren’t, our Developer Committee didn’t find adequate proof of development.
Again, our aim in this wasn’t to make an exclusive club of developers, but to give something back to those that spend their free time generously making ROMs, apps, and other bits of hackery to make our smartphones better. THANK YOU again to all of the developers of XDA, and also thank you to our Developer Committee team who made this all possible: Pulser_g2, NotATreoFan, timmymarsh, 12aon, Egzthunder1, JimmyMcGee, Chainfire, and Willverduzco.
If you didn’t know about this initiative and want to be considered to be a Recognized Developer, go ahead and fill out this form. You should hear back within a week from our Developer Committee crew.

Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far... Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
Yesterday, Sprint announced a new unlimited scheme that offered customers an $80 bundle, which included a $60 plan for unlimited talk, text and high speed data and a $20 payments towards towards a 24 month phone lease, However, a footnote in the plan stated that video streaming would be limited to 600Kbps for users, and this revelation created a flurry of indignation. In a bid to save face in light of the scores of agitated customers, Sprint published a blog post...
