ATLANTA, Oct. 16, 2006 – Delta Air Lines and InPhonic, Inc. have teamed to create the SkyMiles Wireless program.  The collaboration will allow customers to translate their phone plan into a flight plan as they earn miles by purchasing wireless phone plans and accessories from a secure online storefront.
