    Whenever I read something like this, I remember one of my favorite quotes from 8 Mile - "Free comes with a d#ck up your a$$". In other words, there is always a catch, and it takes to start using this service to find out what that catch is.

  3. There's no such thing as 'free'. Read the TOS and Privacy policy...you pay dearly to get 'free service'.

    Constitutionalist would not like that statement, but then again it's all relative; Feedom that is, the "R" is left out intentionally. Technology is great, however with psychopaths behind the money...

    I don't like that name! It sounds like something that I wouldn't trust and that they'll be out of business in less than a year. If I weren't into a family plan, I'd look a little closer at this. but not sure I'd fit into the restrictions.

    I paid $90 for their device last year when they came out. It doesn't work when I need to use it. It's been 5-6 times since my account was "locked" up. No phone number. I have to submit a ticket and wait for a couple days before one of the reps fixes it. Now I think they want to charge $3 if you don't consume more than some $10mb a month. WTF... Out to get you. I'm thinking about canceling mine, cut the loss...

    Correction: 10MB a month, that was.

    Wow - you can hear the angels singing in that ad when God or the Klingons or somebody smites those big telecom buildings from the heavens above. That means it has GOT to be a good deal, right?
