AT&T is the first major carrier to set up a 1-800 service for wireless data. Websites that pay for the service will be toll-free for At&T's wireless customers.  That means the web  traffic won't count against a customer's monthly data minutes.
A curved smartphone is coming to the U.S.. LG Electronics has inked a deal with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile to give consumers their first chance to buy the "G Flex".  The smartphone is expected to go on sale in the U.S. later this year. It has a concave screen, a curved battery and a special coating designed to automatically repair minor scratches to the exterior. The phone has been selling in other markets for about  $900.

And Microsoft says it has sold more than 3 million XBox Ones since it launched in November. The video game console sold out in many stores throughout the holidays.
