    the reason im ask in is cingular just pissed me off. i had a $1000 deposit that was sent out on the 31rst of march and was to be here by tuesday wasnot here i looked online to pay my bill today and lo and behold they credited it to my phone. so now i have a $935.00 credit on my phone and said it will take another 10 days to get the check. and now i have lost a non-refundable deposit on a trailer of $200. they said sorry not our fault the money did not show up.

    Just luking and saw this post. My sister who works in corporate America, is very business minded. She designed all my invoice, database stuff. She just mentioned this thing yesterday. Telling me I ought to look into it. Her church just got these. She likes it because the transactions are quick, and you can view it all at anytime.

    I do think it is the wave of the future. You don't have to rent this thing like you do the portable credit card machines.

    I'll probably get one next year. Let us know how you like it.

    Would be a good idea if your customers happen to be at home when you mow or want to charge them. Otherwise I would think it's a waste. You will save .5 - .7 % on a swipe rather than a key in.
