As if Friday hadn’t been enough, I’m in Wired again. This time, the print version 7.09, the September issue. Actually, it’s just a little letter to the editor. The funny thing is that it doesn’t really apply anymore. The letter, which is about digital phone service, was written a couple of months ago, when I used Intelos. That was before they moved me from unlimited time to a 700-minute plan, with no reduced cost. They just ignored their contract and said that I couldn’t have unlimited anymore. Ungrateful bastards; I spent many, many hours on the phone with their tech support, helping them debug their lousy implementation of CDMA. So, I switched to SunCom, a division of AT&T, with whom I have a dual-mode TDMA / analog phone. My SunCom phone, the Nokia 6162, is not nearly as sexy as my Intelos phone, with whom I have the Sony D-Wave Zuma. I’ve switched to the $20 / month plan at Intelos and given the phone to my father. I couldn’t bear to give it up. :)
Anyhow, that’s the background behind the letter.
