Andy, I disagree that LD will be unbundled from mobile service as the concept doesn't really apply to mobile phones (or SIP trunks). Defining a local/LD call is too difficult when you can place the call anywhere.

I do foresee unbundling of other mobile services - particularly service from phone subsidies - and term contracts being related only to phone subsidies. The cellular companies really had us when we could not port numbers - giving us a choice of carriers is a logical next step.

The mobile carriers are being very deceptive and tricky in their charges and it is very difficult to compare services. I buy my son 5000 texts/mo for $25. He went over and texted 6130 times (don't ask me how). The overage charge was $135 - totally nonsensical. They are abusing common sense. There is now way to ask enough questions (or get reasonable answers) so that carriers can be fairly compared.

The whole thing reminds me of how hotels raped "guests" on long distance for so many years. Now, they are stuck with phones in every room that are rarely used for any external calls.
