<<Smartphones encourage mobile user churn
Owners of high end handsets are the least loyal, bad news for AT&T
Published: 22 September, 2010
High end smartphones not only bring operators' networks crashing down
with their high rates of data consumption, but they breed fickle
consumers who will worsen churn levels, especially as users get more
hostile to two-year contract lock-ins. The downside of the smartphone
boom is highlighted in a survey by Nokia Siemen...MSNBC on text message spam [telecom]

IMNO, any kind of unsoliciting texting to cell phones ought to be

I received a spam text message on my cell phone. (I did not open it).
I called the carrier who said they'd waive the message fee. But do
they do anything to trace such messages back and put a stop to them?
They didn't seem to care.
They offered to put a block on receiving text messages. As it
happens, I don't do any texting at all, but I'm not sure I want to
deny myself a feature in case I would want or need to use it in the

There is a good article called "Cut your telecom bills" in the May,
2011 issue of Consumer Reports magazine.
There are several parts of it that caught my eye right away: a section
titled "Some fiber really isn't", covering some of the physical-layer
issues we've been discussing here, and a section on the "Ooma" VoIP
service, plus a section on "The benefits of bundling and bargaining".
I'm curious what the Digest's readers think about the article.
