Verizon Wireless and Verizon Airfone yesterday announced a new service for Verizon Wireless customers who travel frequently by plane. The $10/month service lets customers forward their Verizon Wireless phone number to their at-seat phone on board any of the more than 2,000 planes served by Verizon Airfone. The service also reduces the in-flight call cost to just $0.10 per minute (normally $3.99 to set up plus $3.99 per minute).

Sorry, I prefer a phone that works rather than just looks cool. Even going CDMA to CDMA... step inside a Sprint store one day and check out their "Technical assitance" area. They swap phone more than...
