Here's a reason to not use Verizon for cell phones

The San Francisco Chronicle has an
interview with Verizon's CEO Ivan Seidenberg.

The main purpose is so he can bash SF's plan to build a municipally owned WiFi network, thus harming the possibility of Verizon having customers for their own service. But along the way he decided to let loose with a few other zingers:

"Why in the world would you think your (cell) phone would work in your house?" he said. "The customer has come to expect so much. They want it to work in the elevator; they want it to work in the basement."

Well, speaking as someone who has ditched the landline in favor of the cell phone, I take offense at his remark. Of course the cell phone is supposed to work indoors. That's the promise of this device, that it will replace land line telephones.
