I put in the address of the 1st house we were going to buy and it offers up directv and high speed internet.
I put in the address of the house we're going to buy and it offers up fios packages. YAY.
I put in the address of my current house and it says this address already has fios service.
AT&T is acquiring T-Mobile.
So much for affordable cell phone plans.
Harumph. I wonder if my $30-per-phone unlimited data plan will be grandfathered in. If it isn't, I might as well see if it makes sense to get a Verizon plan and bundle it with my FIOS for the $10 per month discount or whatever it is they're offering.
Double harumph. My current plan still has more than a year left on the contract, and I just got a third phone to give to the IGlet on his 11th birthday -- *that* phone starts a new two-year lock in.
Hopefully the emergence of $75 Android smartphones will destroy the market for carrier subsidized phones and create significant downward pressure on mobile data plans, as some industry observers have suggested.
I hope so too....3 months left on my plan and I want to ditch AT&T and get a good phone with no crapware on it.
We went to month-to-month with T-Mobile because it was significantly cheaper over the long run to buy our own phones than get a subsidized plan. I am using a G1 ($80 on craigslist); She just got a myTouch 3G slide for $200 on swappa.com, pre-loaded with the latest Cyanogenmod RC. Yes, I am jealous.

We went to month-to-month with T-Mobile...
Originally misparsed this as "We went mouth-to-mouth with T-Mobile..."
My world certainly is entertaining.
Yay for Verizon. Perhaps this time you'll get real FIOS and not FTAS?
Hehheh... 'crate the button'...
"Okay, did he want a shiny red one, or a cool blue one?"
"Shiny red. And it has to light up when he presses it."
"Good, that's the one I put in the crate. Ship it!"
Crate the button. And then dump it in the river.
I think there's enough room in the market for Apple to continue doing nicely for the foreseeable future, but there's an emotional attachment to the #1 spot for everyone. Apple and Linux fans both wanted to see volume market leadership in the post-PC era, once it became clear that Microsoft would *not* have that spot. Linux won this time around.
