The always fashionable folks at Neiman Marcus have decided to dip their delicate toes into the world of tech with a new cell phone service dubbed Voce. They've made agreements with other carriers to ensure you actually have coverage and in order to join their "premium" service you have to cough up a $500 initiation fee. Once paid, you get to choose from a select number of "fashionable" phones and you get full insurance along with other bonuses like an extra battery and multiple chargers. Your $200 monthly fee includes...

unlimited everything with a "voice personal mobile assistant," which sounds like a fancy way of saying, you get access to a Voce operator. I like the idea of not having to sign a contract, but unless you're doing some heavy (and I mean heavy) calling on a monthly basis, this is just too expensive.
