Skype is not a carrier. They make the application.
AT&T *IS* a carrier. But, obstinately, they have no control over Skype or Apple. Apple could still say "Nah, we still want Apps over 10MB to be downloaded over WiFi, for the sake of our customers experience".
(the other reason is because it works with iTunes).
For now... There's no telling what Apple will do (intentionally or not) to break that functionality in the future.
I'm terrified of the day I realize I'm counting memory in gigs the same way I count in megs (64 128 256 512 1024 range).
For me (and many others, I'm sure), that day is here. My Performa 400 had 4 megs of RAM. My Macbook Pro has 4 gigs of RAM...
Greetings from a EU citizen. You guys need to lobby for number portability. It's a big step towards more competition when customers can switch to another provider without worrying about losing their phone number.
We have number portability. What these folks above me are talking about is switching to the same provider and keeping your phone number. It might be possible in theory, but obviously the company is on to those tricks, and so the systems aren't set up to allow you to port a number from a current AT&T account to a new AT&T account and get the "new account" equipment discount.
Also, stupid slashdot, I was using so many caps because I am yelling. Yeesh.
