Memories of the AT&T Phone Store

This article about “the new AT&T” converting former Cingular stores into “AT&T Experience Stores”, selling all sorts of AT&T wired and wireless products and services.

It reminds of the old days when you could walk into an AT&T (or Southwestern Bell) store in a mall and walk out with a quality, well-constructed telephone. To get a good-quality phone these days, you have to buy something off eBay that’s 15-20 years old.
