    Yea! for internationalization. I called IBM tech support once. The call went
    to India. When they inquired as to which model I was using (an Aptiva) they
    transfered me to Ireland. Odd.

    There is just one problem. A new national registry is being developed
    so folks with land lines can look up their friend's cell phone numbers.
    This will mean that cell phone numbers are no longer unlisted and that
    Telemarketers will have a ball- on your air time of course. Check with
    alt.Verizon for source.

    Not a problem. US carriers can be made to not carry calls from that
    number to any US number.

    Only if you activated that feature on your cell phone. I refuse to use
    my cell phone for anything other than talking.

    The really bad news is the all the cell phone companies are in on this
    plot. They see it as a multi-billion dollar a year bonus for
    themselves. You pay for the extra minutes you consume telling jerks to
    leave you alone, and you pay to be taken off the list (no matter how
    many times that takes). This is the worst real time "conspiracy" theme
    I have ever come across- because it is real. I just checked it out at
    the Washington Post. These guys are serious. The cell phone industry
    wants to go into the list selling business.

    An outfit called Zelos surveyed 1,200 cell phone users and has
    recommended that the cell phone list selling business go forward- that
    we wont mind all that much. So much for surveys. A mere 1,200 surveyed
    for a decision that will effect 140 million cell phone users.

    What about these text messages that keep coming in? I keep getting billed
    for text services, even though I never open the text messages. I have quite
    a few of them in the queue now and have not been deleting them because I was
    told that to delete them you have to first open them and that involves a
    text messaging charge per message. I get these charges anyway, every month
    and the messages are from random numbers of no one I know. Very annoying to
    have my cell phone ring and it's a text message from a spammer.
    Do Not Call should also include Do Not Text.
