AT&T will bundle its little-publicized Internet phone service, CallVantage, with its cellphone service during a three-month trial at 14 AT&T Wireless stores in Portland, Ore., and central New Jersey.
The gambit is noteworthy because AT&T is taking on Verizon in New Jersey and Qwest and Verizon in Portland. If the trial goes well, AT&T could offer the package elsewhere outside its mainly Midwestern and Southern U.S. local-service regions.
