Big deal - receiver still pays, still cruddy model
Big Hairy Deal. Verizon is still running a thief-designed model. Until Verizon eliminates charges for every call the cell phone RECEIVES, the business model is still crud.
For years I've been telling every cell phone store rep I talk to that if they just used the classic land-line model of only the caller pays, they'd clean up in cell phones. Of course, that obvious idea has been busily ignored. Makes one wonder -- are all American cell phone company executives just thieves who haven't been caught yet? (After Enron, it's pretty obvious the answer is, Yes.)
