    Hmm...not so sure on that. Some defend it, no matter what. It's as
    if they're on the payroll...(c;

    I always find this funny. I've been attacked at being an AMPS
    customer because, for some crazy reason, they think AMPS customers are
    sucking the towers away from the toyphones. Oh, shame on you for
    wasting it.

    Rates are no more based on his suit than taxes are on how much the
    government spends in Iraq. They're both sucking up as much money as
    the MARKET will bear. If he sues them for $10M, it simply takes away
    from the profit line on the balance sheet, just like any other
    business, including mine. If I thought I could raise rates another
    dollar, and get away with it, I'd do it.....just like Verizon. I'm
    just smarter in that I don't spend hours trying to find ways of
    jacking up or adding some "fee" to accomplish it. My customers must
    be lots smarter than theirs.

    3) The guy was an abusive idiot that hinted at a few details, yet never
    provided them, and wouldn't listen to any of the explanations he was
    given on what pro rating means... He hit the right buttons at the right
    time.
