the problem is how would you know who you would be calling...if it were an ATT landline customer or whatever other company.....Im not going to take the time everytime I call someone w/ my cell phone or my ATT Landline home phone to track and see if the other person I am calling is part of the ATT network.

I'm sure they'll have some sort of website where you can check, just how Cingular has one that checks to see if a person is on Cingular or not.
