    They have a two year plan. Now that Softbank's chairman finally feels like dumping some money into Sprint we should see some progress. I think he was banking on the TMO merger too much and got caught sleeping.

    This is all a ploy by Sprint to get their merger with AT&T approved.

    Same here in the majority of the North West part of the country. There's just nothing that comes close to Verizon's coverage out here. Now if I lived back in the South East I would be excited.
    More power to them though.

    My 7 year old saw a pay phone recently and asked me what it is. She couldn't fathom why anyone would use one of those instead of their mobile phone, not able to grasp life without a mobile phone in the vehicle. She finally let it go when I said it's good for in case your battery dies on your mobile phone and you need to make a call. She said it's worth .35 if your battery dies. Wisdom from the mouths of babes.

    If my phone died, there's literally no one I could call from a pay phone other than work. That's the only number I have memorized anymore. I used to know all of my friend's numbers by heart before I had a cell phone. I'd have to call work to get my wife's number from my emergency contact info. Haha

    There's actually a pay phone in the parking lot of the gas station near my house. I should pick it up & see if there's a dial tone next time I stop there...
