my phone number or phone number for the blog

Filed under: COM, ITSP, SIP, SipSorcery — Seth Wisely @ 09:35

I’m debating buying a DID solely for this blog.   Hate mail is fun.. but with hate voicemail there can be no mistake about tone.   I’m not worried about threats; the FBI can handle those nicely.

Maybe I should only offer a SIP URI?  No cost incurred, but then only the savvy would call?

I have been discussing some inventive uses for IVR with an online friend.  He started it, I improved it and so began an arms race of IVR hackery.  More on that soon.. or once the ITSP works out the kinks

mwahaha

Feb 16 2010, Verizon Wireless and Skype join forces to create a global mobile calling community

make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls to any Skype user around the globe on America’s most reliable wireless network [Until verizon pushes a PRL that makes using  your handset in your house nearly impossible.. thankfully: NAM2]

delightfully: purely theoretical.  needs testing. need more free time. d’oh

“free” skype calls will incur verizon’s thirty dollar a month upgrade penalty for “smart” phones.

me: how can I opt out of your $30/mo upgrade penalty for services I shall NEVER use?
verizon: the $30/mo fee is for your convenience
me: how is paying your $30/mo upgrade penalty for something I shall NEVER use convenient for ME?
verizon: if you didn’t have the unlimited data plan you would have to pay fees per megabyte that would quickly become excessive
me: great how do I get that?
verzion: get what?
me: the option to be billed excessively per megabyte?
verizon: now we have the unlimited data plan for thirty dollars a month; otherwise you would have to pay for megabyte usage
me: alright how do I pay for megabyte usage?
verizon: you won’t have to with our convenient unlimited data package
me: I don’t want to pay your thirty dollars a month upgrade penalty for something I won’t EVER be using.  I would rather pay for megabyte usage… especially as I’ll be using zero megabytes every month.  How much will it cost to use ZERO megabytes of data a month?
verizon: if you weren’t using data you would still have the protection of the $30/mo unlimited data plan
[actual verizon “reasoning”]
verizon: in case someone else picked up your phone and connected to the internet…..

repeat ad nasuem
