    Like the article says, its not particularly alarming. All of the companies I have worked for have not reimbursed employees for business-use data plans on personal phones, only on business-owned phones.

    Could this be linked to what Ballmer said? Now hes forcing his employees to use Windows Moble not just his children. :rolleyes:

    Wow unbelievable, imagine MS not paying for data plans that are probably outside of their lower cost negotiated data plans.

    Not to derail the thread (and I know it's only a Yahoo article), but since when is it acceptable to use the word "crappy" in a news piece? Really strains the credibility of the author, in my opinion.

    Yeah I agree, you shouldn't use crappy usually in a piece of journalism, but in this case I think it may be a reference to a previous quote or something similar..

    Meh, MS has always had a "eat your own dog food" philosophy. Nothing new here.

    I'm impressed that iPhone users on any MS campus weren't summarily executed via a 16-ton pile of Bob.

    Didn't even know they had the freedom.
