That's a *much* better deal that they had going not too long ago!

Don't even mention the "V" word around me!  Those bastards had a knack
for accidentally changing my plan from 1000+ minutes to the minimum and
then sending me a $750 bill.  They did that to me twice!!!  Needless to
say I dumped their stupid crap service.

I got ATT now.  I'm not going to sing their praises, but at least their
billing is correct.  My t68i is okay (albeit uncomfortable) and I can
hook my laptop up via bluetooth or browse with my handspring via IR.  I
don't use it as much as I thought because with almost a full second
latency, interactive sessions like ssh are friggin tedious and good for
worst case scenarios only.  I had visions of the glory of sitting at the
local coffee shop and checking up on my boxes and routers while sipping
caffinated goodness!!!

Oh well...  I guess I watched too much science fiction in my youth.
