Although mentioned previously in this tread, its unlikely it will be a free addon. I believe the iphone vvm option is still the only "free" vvm option available from any carrier. Vzw charges and I am not sure if tmobile even has a vvm option.

It was all to inspire that oohhh factor for the iphone.
The bold is a different beast. Why would att offer the vvm option for free when other carriers get to make a dime? They all work together as much as they say they don't to make sure all the options they offer are of similar ilk so no one company becomes an overwhelming conglomerate.
Its why no company ever tries to take a huge technological jump forward, either with car fuel consumptio, cell phone or internet speeds/features, or similar. Companies know they can work together and milk the technology and us for the most money they can. Happens everywhere, all the time.
I will go on record as saying atts vvm will most definitely not be free. Just because there is an icon in eeeeaaarly beta stages means absolutely about cost.
If a car company puts a button to traction control on the new **** blazer xs dashboard, and hooks it up to nothing, we all know when they finally do add the function behind the button they are going to charge for it.
