Comment: Wrong number (Score 4, Interesting) 158 158

Many years ago a buddy got some new phone lines. One had just been a reservation number for an extremely large restaurant. After a few days of folks trying to make reservations through him he called the restaurant and offered them the number back if they'd pay the transfer fees. They declined. So he started taking reservations. "Four for the Ponderosa Room at 7pm? Under 'Caruthers'? Not a problem; please check in with the Hostess when you arrive." After a week of this he called the restaurant back, and offered them their reservation number back. For just the fees? Oh no, assholes, now it's gonna cost something! He got some nominal amount, just 'cause he was pissed about his time & trouble.

Um, no.

T-Mo TOS don't appear to allow tethering to 3G. They do allow tethering on Edge at no additional charge (so back down your device.) Their happy helpful customer support (really, I think they pump drugs into their air) will happily walk you through tethering on a BlackBerry, no additional cost. Tho >10GB in a billing cycle you get throttled.

That said T-Mo plans are cheapest, win JD Powers for service, are great about supporting random phones, coverage has improved considerably in the past few years, and T-Mo does lead on Android.

At these prices, I lose money -- but I make it up in volume. -- Peter G. Alaquon
