Has anybody had experience with Charter Communications (in western Massachusetts, if that makes a difference)? My wife and I are moving to Hadley in a couple of weeks and are thinking of taking advantage of Charter's bundle (available through the end of the month) of basic cable + high-speed internet + phone service (unlimited calling in US) for $69.97/mo. This seems like a good deal. Anybody have experience with them? And if you live in the Pioneer Valley, how worried should we be about the likelihood of an electricity failure disrupting our phone service?

Is there any program released for Windows Mobile Smartphone (WM5/WM6) that will dynamically scramble my voice in a call?

If not, are there any other programs that do anything remotely similar (or any programs that are just interesting in general)? I have a T-Mobile Dash upgraded to WM6, but any WM5/6 Smartphone programs should work.
