    Gov. Jerry Brown has nixed a proposal that would have made penalties more pricey for California motorists caught using cell phones behind the wheel. Senate Bill 28, by Democratic Sen. Joe Simitian, proposed upping the fine for drivers caught texting or talking on a cell phone without a hands-free device from $20 to $50 for the first offense. The final tab with local and state assessments could be up to $328 for fist-time offenders. A second ticket could have cost has much as $528 under the under the Palo Alto Democrat's proposal, which also called for new penalties for using...

    Taxing text messages? Some Vallejo voters are saying OMG. The North Bay city, with its ever-shrinking revenue stream, is asking voters Tuesday to expand its utility tax to include text messages, private phone networks, pagers and voice-over-Internet services. It's an idea that's spreading around California, as more than 40 cities have similarly expanded their utility taxes at the ballot box as a way to raise money. "We don't use our cell phones a lot, but we think this gives the city a blank check," said retired Mare Island shipyard worker John Kocourek of Vallejo, who's been working against the measure....

    A software malfunction some time Tuesday night short circuited voicemail service for about 700,000 Verizon customers in California. Unanswered calls just continue to ring rather than switch over to Verizon’s voicemail system. Jon Davies, media representative for Verizon, said the problem started some time during the night and the cause of the glitch has not been determined, nor is there an estimated time when service will be restored. Residents and businesses in Ridgecrest reported having voice mail problems. “We’re working on the problem and hopefully it will not be long before we get to the root cause,” Davies said. “It...

    In a move that could give cellular customers unprecedented freedom and choice, Verizon Wireless announced Tuesday it will be the first major carrier to allow any device or application to connect to its network. The nation's second-largest carrier, with 64 million subscribers, said it will launch an initiative next year called Any App, Any Device, which will allow manufacturers of phones and other mobile devices to connect them to the Verizon Wireless network provided they meet some minimum standards. The move is a major reversal for Verizon Wireless, which has been known for jealously guarding access to its network. The...

    Berkeley -- Berkeley is home to some of the world's leading scientific, technological and telecommunications research, but good luck getting a cell phone connection there. Coverage in the bustling college town has been notoriously spotty since the city imposed restrictions on cell-phone towers six years ago amid health and aesthetic concerns, phone users say. Telecom giant Verizon recently filed a lawsuit in federal court to try and force the city to approve the towers, but little has changed. The City Council on Tuesday night considered whether to approve five new antennas for Verizon and six new antennas for Nextel. But...

    For months, the establishment dismissed those of us opposed to amnesty as a tiny minority of the public and the Congress. On Thursday, that “tiny minority” outnumbered the pro-amnesty forces in the Senate, dealing a humiliating and well-deserved defeat to President Bush. The same White House that insisted that there was no realistic alternative to “comprehensive immigration reform” had better recalibrate its realism now. There always were better alternatives, and the president and his party have no way out of the immigration morass he has created unless they pursue them. Nor does the country. The public is rightly dismayed at...

    PHOENIX -- Hell hath no fury like a state legislator whose cell phone has eaten her calendar. That's what happened to Sen. Pamela Gorman. And the Anthem Republican said that repeated efforts to get that and other problems resolved proved fruitless. And that, she said, left her with two options: Live with what she said was substandard equipment or service or move to another company. But that would result in an early termination fee, which Gorman said effectively traps the customer. So Gorman is pushing legislation to say that if a cell phone company violates any terms of the contract,...

Wal-Mart places a limit on the number of cell phones that can be purchased at once, that number is three. The three men allegedly bought 80 by purchasing them three at time so that an alert wouldn't be triggered by the cash register. They also paid cash. An alert clerk grew suspicious and called Tuscola County central dispatch. The Caro Police Department sent a unit and stopped the rented van on M-81 just east of Caro. The suspects...

It was the first such permit granted to the Navy, and one environmental group, the Natural Resources Defense Council, said it would file a lawsuit Wednesday to prevent the sonar's use. The monthlong exercise, which includes anti-submarine training, involves naval forces from eight nations. It began Monday off the Hawaiian Islands. The sonar part of the exercise begins after July 4 and lasts three weeks. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration...
