I’ve been thinking about my ideal mobile setup. Here’s what I want: T-Mobile’s Handspring PDA/Phone, AT&T Wireless T68i phone, and SprintPCS Vision’s $10/month unlimited wireless access for my TiBook.
See the problem? It’s bundling. Because you have to buy handsets from the carriers, it’s impossible to get what you want. Until they stop trying to “add value” to their networks by controlling how you access them, the wireless carriers will continue to be distracted from their core business and serve their best customers poorly.
I think I’m going to keep my Sprint account and add the $10 data service for my laptop and forego the PDA for the time being.
