Munge, my point is that we the public got marketed a "convenience" and now accept paying a million times as much as we used to just to have a chat.

you mean you can call on cell phones too. I thought it was just a way to show off pictures of food on instagram and tell people they're wrong on facebook.

I dropped Verizon and now use PagePlus, which uses the Verizon network-heh-but is no-contract. My wife uses her phone a lot, so we got month to month for her, but I'm a low use guy, and buy a minutes in chunks. I figure going this way rather than having two numbers on a family plan with Verizon we'll be saving about $800 a year. No joke, that.

Bad Climber.. I just did exactly the same thing. I don't use many minutes so I switched to Page Plus for a no-contract I-phone (which I was forced into for business reasons)

Dumped Verizon and At&T in one shot (cell and land line). Now that I can run credit cards through the phone I also dumped my CC processor who was gouging me.

I'm saving like $1500.00 per year

I upped my insurance deduct-able since insurance is supposed to be for real serious accidents, and am saving more there too.

killing my cable TV off is on the horizon

Oy.. a really close friend of mine has worked for Pack Bell/now At&T for over 30 years. I got a earful for over an hour last night about how totally f*#ked up and corrupt the company is.

Jacking rates for no reason, showing up when people aren't even home and billing them for repairs (employees are instructed to do this), randomly disconnecting service then charging you a bunch of money to get it put back (this happened to us with our internet), hiring people with no experience to mess with electrical in your house, they are ditching the low-income discount for poor people (too bad.. you all pay full price now), and they will no longer install towers for remote-location people to get cell service. (Too bad... you have to invest in satellite now). The list went on.

His advice.. avoid At&T at all costs.

Did he work for ATT after they got bought out by SBC about 8 years ago?

The company seems to have changed quite a bit since then. They were incredibly dishonest before then and I wouldn't have used them if they were the last phone company on earth back then.

Now I happen to like them and find their customer service surprisingly willing to make changes in my favor. I make my living based on being able to get my calls and some of the places I go ATT is the only service. So for me it pays to keep them even if they are a bit expensive compared to secondary level providers.

att/gophone i just changed my sim card from a Alcatel phone which does
not make sense in regards to voicemail and call forwarding. I went back
to a Samsung which makes sense with the previous mentioned.

Upon a chnge of number i immediately started receiving invites to night
clubs. One i know of and it seems very crowded at nights. As a matter
of fact ive never been in there at night. However i just went by there
today after purchasing a new Samsung at Best Buy without activating it
through their activation system, another words i did not use the new
sim card. I had 1 $3.00 DosXX with lime it was the perfect size for
driving away lawfully. I'm not certain why im being notified about the
other club events via text messages noting im too far away from those.

$00.10 per minute to talk, $00.20 for FM truncated DNS/email protocol text
via dial in, $00.25 for DNS/FTP non-truncated FM is still the best buy for

It's doubtful that att wireless is the same entity as att/sbc. att wireless
bought out cingular wireless a LA wireless company years ago. It appears
internally that truncated FM mail protocols for text going through a Chicago dial in may also be att, though non truncated FM FTP messages usually always appear to be cingular servers.
