ATT femtocell is wide open by default
AT&T's Cisco-made PS3 jailbreaking, has posted explorations that have shown it might be dangerously open. Connecting to the WAN Ethernet port lets users run with root-level privileges on the mini, virtual cell site's Linux OS without a password. Although data going out is routed to a specific AT&T connection, the full access means anyone can change the IP to somewhere else.
ATT echoes Sprint with unlimited mobile to mobile
AT&T pulled out one more strategy in an attempt to prevent defections to Verizon for the iPhone with an unlimited calling option. Unlimited Mobile to Any Mobile lets those who have unlimited messaging but a limited voice plan make unlimited calls to anyone in the US on a cellphone, regardless of which carrier the receiver uses. The strategy is a similar though not identical to Sprint's Any Mobile, Anytime plan.
ATT to give MicroCells and segment 4G
Two leaks on Friday have detailed some of AT&T's plans both to accommodate oversaturation on its 3G network and to segment its 4G network. One slip has revealed that AT&T will hand out free 3G MicroCell routers to the 7.5 percent of customers likely to have poor indoor reception. The only limit Engadget noted was a one-year contract specific to the femtocell; breaking the term would cost the newly raised $200 price minus $16.67 per month for every month the user remains with AT&T.
