    A new trend has arisen in the US over the last few years: switching to prepaid plans. Though prepaid plans have their quirks, the pros generally outweigh the cons when you compare them with most postpaid plans nowadays. To that end, T-Mobile has been one of the more popular prepaid destinations, with popular plans ranging from just $30 a month. Today, the company has announced that it has taken the #1 prepaid wireless spot in the United States. T-Mobile USA now has 15.64 million customers on its prepaid network, though this total includes the recently-acquired MetroPCS's connections. ...

    We've recently seen a ZTE Grand X Pro render leaked this weekend and we didn't have any additional information to go by except for the image of the phone which appears to be a follow-up of the ZTE Grand X LTE. On the same note we're now seeing the ZTE Avid 4G render leaked above. As with the Grand X Pro, there's nothing which can help us identify the internals of the phone which looks to be a budget-mid-ranger Android (ICS we're guessing) with a rather small screen and a low resolution (though we're just speculating after looking at the render).

    When you're coming down off a few weeks of huge news, there's a lot to sift through. On this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, that's exactly what we're doing. Join Michael Fisher, Brandon Miniman, and -a first for the podcast- Chief News Editor Stephen Schenck for in-depth discussion on Apple's continuing iPhone 5 and iOS6 successes and failures, the latest in the annoyingly-named "mapplegate," HTC's new One X+ and One VX, speculation on the next Nexus, Nokia's terrifying new commercial aimed at the iPhone, and even a touch of webOS news. We changed up the order a bit this week, everyone, ...
