AT&T Combines Wireless, Wireline In-Network Calling
Replying to: NOT a good deal. by youareretarded
Im sorry, but this is NOT a good deal. Its just clever marketing like rollover.
You have to pay $60/month for the cellular service, that should be close to 1k anytime + n&w. Then you have to pay for unltd long distance service, which according to the 'unity plans start @ $100/month' means $40/month. WHERE is the good deal here? If you shop around for long distance, you can get a better deal, and with FREE long distance calling on all cell phones, where's the benefit of even having a long distance carrier.
I'm all for landlines in homes, they are traditional and in the eyes of Americans, traditional is safe. But seriously are you going to let them pull the wool over your eyes? Yes you'll get some free calls by calling businesses, but how many hours in a whole month do you actually spend talking on the phone to a Wal-Mart or chinese take-out place? I'm sure for businesses this may be nice, but there's a reason business plans exist, and I'm SURE they are exempt from this promo. So again, where's the good deal here folks?
Sensationalist advertising preys on the weakness of others- their stupidity. Don't follow the masses, think before you step.
actually, it is benificial. thing larger families. and those who have families that have at&t/bellsouth landline and no wireless phone. also the small business and from home worker will benifit from this. realtors. insurance people. and it's a lot better than the alltel and tmobile thing giving you free calling to 10/5 people plus mobile to mobile. this is over 100+ million lines for free. it's a step in the right direction. making it all seamless.
