Some phone users can’t commit to monthly plans. Instead these so-called prepaid users pay for buckets of minutes — effectively paying as they go.
Some subset of this group, AT&T’s market research indicates, won’t even commit to minutes — hence a new product offering. Starting Monday, AT&T will offer prepaid users the ability to pay $3 to make unlimited local and long-distance calls for one day. Pay $3 online in the morning, use the phone all day, then hang up and be done with it.
Mark Siegel, a spokesman for AT&T, said the theory behind the offering is that “prepaid callers are heterogeneous.”
Mr. Siegel said the company did not expect the plan’s potential customers to come from any particular age group or demographic. Rather, he said, “it’s for people who want to use the phone for a day without counting minutes.”

While Americans were busying snatching up the last items on their Christmas shopping lists, the U.S. Senate was one step closer to protecting various cellphone/wireless carriers who allegely collaborated with the US Goverment in their illegal phonetap/spy program. They are passing legislature that will protect these companies from any further legal action. The greenlight not only extends to wiretapping of phone services but also internet connections. Here’s what they had to say: “The language is crafted broadly enough to shield not only traditional telephone companies and Internet service providers, but e-mail providers, search engines, and instant-messaging services too. And the legal shield would apply not only to corporate cooperation with programs run by the National Security Agency, but also any activities at the CIA, the Defense Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the State Department, the Treasury Department, Homeland Security and other intelligence-related organizations.” To read the full story about this invasion of your privacy read HERE.
