Cingular goes bye-bye on Monday

Yuck, it’s official that it’s happening much sooner than many expected: According the the Wall Street Journal, AT&T is killing the Cingular brand as of Monday January 15th. What a terrible mistake in my opinion! “AT&T” is so 20th century. It just smacks of back-astardness to me. Makes me want to change carriers just to […]

Two months of LG L1400 use is enough

I’ve been using the LG L1400 for the last couple of months and I’m longing to have a Series 60 or at least MIDP 2 powerhouse back as my main mobile. Stacked against the L1400 for developers: You can’t test any ideas you might have for Nokia’s new Python implementation. No MIDP 2 support severely […]

Sharpening the (somewhat dull) Razr edge

BusinessWeek reports on Motorola’s plans to produce a line of handsets based upon the Razr V3. In case you somehow missed it (I’m not sure how you could have if you’re in the US and watch television, because Cingular carpet bombed the airwaves with Razr ads over the holidays), the V3 is a new top […]

My new LG L1400

She ordered her new phone and GSM service from the AT&T Wireless business web site on Wednesday, had the phone and SIM on Friday, and had her number successfully moved, her new phone activated, […]
