"I was just driving to work when all of a sudden my car began displaying images i couldn't imagine.  There is nothing more embarassing than having to park your car and quickly turn it off because someone somehow made my car play pornographic films.  I'm suing everyone"


 


Can't you hear it now? =P

It makes sense they are using AT&T since they already have a contract with them for Onstar. 

 

It would, however, be nice if car manufacturers just included a sim card slot and then let the consumer pick which carrier to go with.

I thought I read that it can use your cellphone's data connection.

"AT&T Mobility President and CEO Ralph de la Vega, who also spoke at the media event, said that AT&T will allow customers to add their LTE-enabled vehicles to their Mobile Share plans as an additional device, similar to a tablet or smartphone. AT&T said it will announce pricing for LTE-enabled vehicles when they debut this summer."

Did VZW lose the OnStar contract to AT&T?  I seem to recall reading that.  We probably even discussed it here.

Yeah, starting with the 2014 model year vehicles, IIRC. All previous models will still use VZW. I'm somewhat surprised they agreed to that since I'm sure it will severely hurt Onstar if VZW just decided to ditch them.

I am glad that I can still recall many of my almost 9000 posts.  Here is the relevant thread from about a year ago.
