The future is now! Though yesterday it was announced that the pilot program to bring cellphone service to underground subway platforms on the 14th Street corridor would begin on Tuesday, we've just gotten an e-mail from a tipster...sent to us from the L platform on the 8th Avenue stop. Dun dun DUN!

Has anyone else gotten their phones to work on the subways yet? Or are you too worried about subway crime to whip your phone out?
