    1. T Mobile isn't much better. They excluded prepaid customers and their free calling only starts tomorrow. I'm more than a little disappointed with T Mobile.

  2. Uhh, why aren't you mentioning Turkey? They were also a victim of a terrorist attack and T-Mobile/Verizon made the same offer there.
