We’ve just been handed some internal AT&T information on device changes:

A new tier of device will be created in AT&T’s phone database on October 4th (a Tuesday:) which will require a higher rate of insurance. iPhone (and other devices) will move there on the arbitrary October 4th date. It is curious that the iPhone was mentioned specifically and not other devices.

CDMA iPhone 4 makes its way to Cricket Wireless (via jailbreak)

As any astute follower of the “pay-as-you-go” world knows, there are quite a few back alley Cricket dealers (and quite a few main street ones as well) that will happily flash any phone you give them for use on their network — and not even Verizon’s CDMA iPhone is immune. Ready to jump ship from “America’s largest?” Of course, you’ll have to jailbreak, install some third party MMS software, and trust some random dude at the Cricket store with your precious smartphone.

Apple announces App Store subscriptions

Hot on the heels of the Daily, the oft-rumored Apple subscription service is finally spreading out to the rest of the app store. Love it or lump it, anything currently available in the company’s online marketplace, including magazines, newspapers, video, and music, can now be offered on the subscription model. “All we require,” said Steve Jobs in the press release, “is that, if a publisher is making a subscription offer outside of the app, the same (or better) offer be made inside the app, so that customers can easily subscribe with one-click right in the app.” (This sounds familiar.) Publishers are also restricted from linking out of the app to locations that allow the user to circumvent the in-app purchase (and publishers can’t offer better deals outside of the app store). The rationale here? Apple gets thirty percent off the top off in-app purchases — enough of a cut, we’re guessing, to prompt some bigger publishers to skip the platform altogether (outside purchases, of course, are exempt from this fee).
