Back to AT&T

I left BellSouth in 2005 and have been fairly happy using a VoIP line with Earthlink TruVoice, but I gotta tell ya, I’m really thinking of going back to BellSouth a/k/a/ the New AT&T.

The quality of calls is just not the same as a land line. Neither is my cell phone up to the quality of a land line. It’s really disappointing because of all the innovations, e.g. emailing me voice mails, not to mention cost, but damn if I’m tired of having my calls drop and get choppy in the middle of a radio interview.

Plus, it really is time for an unlisted number.

    Buzz got a spam email in his Inbox… Erick is thinking about changing phone companies… wow, great stuff. You know, when it’s a slow news day there always IS the option of just not posting that day. 🙂

    Does anyone know anything about Satellite Phones. Is that something that has yet to catch on here in the US? Has it caught on in other countries? I’m just curious, and wondering why it’s not common here or if it’s even common anywhere in the world?

    Ahhhh…well that would explain a lot. Thanks. I’m not familiar with them, but I do remember hearing about them a few years ago and thinking that they may be the next big thing….oh well.

    Just to give you a warning, Bellsouth/AT&T has more than enough unexplained, intermittent e-mail outages.

    Note that before AT&T took control, there were not as many unexplained outages.

    By “outages” I mean some e-mail that is supposed to arrive in yoru box doesn’t get there that day…and, never arrives.

    I advise you to only use Bellsouth e-mail for the SMTP and rely on Outlook (or some other e-mail client) to pull e-mail directly off of the Red State, etc. sites.
