OK, so let’s try to understand corporate America. AT&T was in the wireless business at one point. I can personally attest to the utter atrociousness of their service. Overpriced, underperformed and just plain crappy. In what seemed like a perfectly smart move, they bowed to better services (Verizon, T-Mobile) and sold that wireless business, network and all, off to Cingular, another good player. This morning, just a couple of months after selling the wireless business, what does AT&T do? They launch a wireless business. Makes perfect sense! The cherry on top is that since they don’t have a network anymore so they plan on leasing it from a staunch competitor, Sprint. I love America.

    Believe it or not I just switched my service from T-Mobile to ATT. The ATT coverage (I got a 30 day free trial) just dusted my T-Mobile coverage. I even got out of my year and a half left contract (sleazilly. for those in need, feel free to email for the gory details). I was told that ATT is not just leasing Sprint's network, but everyone else's as well, whatever signal is best. I believe it, 'cause I saw complete coverage in dozens of areas where my old phone would fail to work at all. Best of all, I got the same minutes, same no roaming nationwide plan as I had, plus I got a second phone and number for my sweetie. I also love America.
