    It's not inability, it's refusal. A year ago, my bill showed who my
    incoming calls came from. A couple months later, they stopped. When I
    inquired about it, they gave me some BS about privacy. AFAIAA, the Chicago
    market did not have a change in billing system then.

    Privacy/showing who incoming calls come from is one issue -- I feel you
    pain.
    Billing them as M2M or not is an independent issue.

    Yes, I understood that. They have to know the calling number (or at least
    the
    ESN if its not one of their's) and the called number. Those would be given
    to VZW when billed and could be correlated then.

    I wonder if they will change the ERI to match the new terminology.
    Have it say something like "Verizon In Net"?

    I'm just saying that they can't use "inability to provide incoming detail"
    as an excuse for not billing IN correctly.

    And if the browser connection times out or is interrupted, it's
    entirley possible to get billed for three minutes of use, within one
    minute of actual time:-(
    I guess that's just like making three phone calls within one minute.
    However, re-connections are less noticable, when using the wireless
    web.
