    Here's the kicker:

    This is incredible. WTF do I pay for a cell phone if I can have the government just pay for me? I can't wait for the government-issued gas-cards. GM needs to get in on this too, then they can give people cars they can't afford that only go a certain number of miles for free, then they have to pay for additional miles.

    Wow. I wish I could get a plan like this, I barely even use 25 minutes of airtime every month.
    BTW, 31% packet loss blows. :(

    Iridium 9555 is your answer.

    Phones for battered woman is one thing. I have donated some old cell phones to a shelter before.

    When I was living in Spokane they where in the process of removing a lot of the pay phones from store fronts because the only people who used them where dealers and pimps. How many complaints do you think these people get because so and so cant talk to their girlfriend 9 hours a day while getting their hair did?
