You talked about RIM coming out with a prepay phone and were wondering
why that might sell.

Foreign workers. One of the huge troubles in bringing in you Offshore
software guys for stints in the US is they can’t sign up for cell
phones. And a business doesn’t want unused loaner phones sitting
around. This would solve that.

Ok, this makes the second time Natali has mentioned dropping Fios. However, what she has not mentioned is why she dropped it. As someone who is waiting for Fios to make it to my area (Internet only), I’m curious if Natali could provide me with a reason I should stick with Comcast.

Currently, I’m using Comcast for internet and uber basic cable. I would have gotten just internet, but the package with basic cable was cheaper. Go figure. Also, I’m using vonage for my phone service. And while I’m at it, after looking at Google Voice, I must say most, if not all those features are available through Vonage, and with that I get a quasi landline.
