After the “upgrade” fiasco, decided to not spend any more time and aggravation dealing with AT&T, and am now with T-Mobile. So new phone, better coverage, more minutes and less money. Guess it’s good in a way that AT&T’s “upgrade” program gave me the impetus to make the switch.
Was pretty impressed with the phone number port process–the number switched over while I was in the store doing the paperwork, and it was in general glitch free. Really glad not to go through a nightmare like this guy. My sympathies go out to him.
The only fly in the ointment was my brand spanking new (and quite the groovy) T610 being a lemon. It crashed intermittently, forcing removal of the battery to reset. No fun. Took it back to the T-Mobile store for a replacement, which so far hasn’t exhibited any drama queen tendencies.
To add to the T-Mobile goodness, Joe has figured out that it’s pretty easy to get mobile Internet using your regular minutes, not some exorbitant data rate. Still waiting for him to get his first monthly bill before I try it myself, but here’s hoping.
