Just a vent. I'm not a fan of telcos. They don't exist to provide service for their subscribers or jobs for their employees. They exist to produce quarterly profits for their shareholders.

Change companies, get a new number and address and have to distribute it to creditors, friends, contacts, family etc. I just changed carriers myself a month ago and did it. Big deal. It's their number, not mine, any more than a credit card number or email address. The millions spent on this could have been spent on systems and up...
