Sigh. It was NYC's Department of Consumer Affairs, as posted here in this very BBS:

"New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) Acting Commissioner Jonathan Mintz today announced the agency has filed suit in New York Supreme Court against three major wireless companies for pitching cell phones and services in deceptive advertisements that misled consumers. DCA filed suit against Nextel Communications Inc., Sprint Spectrum L.P., and T-Mobile ... _____________________________________________________ Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key [to foil spammers, my address has been double rot-13 encoded]

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I _knew_ I had read it somewhere on the net about Nextel getting sued; my own newsgroup would be a good place to go looking, I guess ... IMO, Nextel is not very forthright about the distinctions between 'regular' cell phone service and their own thing, nor about how the word 'nationwide' is to be interpreted. PAT]
