Legal It was more or less not a question of if, but when, and now we're here: the US Department of Justice is said to launch an investigation into the US telecommunications industry to see if the two biggest players, AT&T and Verizon, are abusing their market position. Even though Apple is not a target for the probe, the usually trustworthy Wall Street Journal states that the iPhone/AT&T deal will also come under scrutiny [subscr. req.].

Spot on. All I've been wanting is to get a decent phone from one of the local carriers with decent prices

Do you rely on your internet service for a computer?

That's the real problem with these national mobile phone scams.
