A Passport to Make Phone Call

Why did innovative Apple go into business with AT&T, a company that makes GM appear cutting-edge? Last week, I got a new I-phone – great. Alas, AT&T is the exclusive carrier in the U.S. and what a nightmare company to deal with. Now I learn that to be able to make an overseas call and have international service I have to fax (!?) AT&T a copy of my passport, a utility bill, etc. Now that is 21st century! And people wonder why old US companies need the taxpayers to bail them out. This customer is off – back to T-mobile.
