About 20 years ago maybe more the capitalistic mantra was "greed is good" and was thrown around like "thinking outside of the box" has been more recently. There was even a popular movie around that time about wall street that i think drove that home. Thinking it had a young tom cruise in it. 

You think maybe the peeps that were 'up and coming' during the "greed is good" era are now in the top seats making big businesses decisions?  Just a wondering thought...

Contract should be limited to 1 year Max. And if you can't afford to buy your phone "YOU CAN'T AFFORD THE PHONE" Hello!

 woohoo go FCC!!  I have to wait another 4 months to get out of my
Nextel contract and they didn't pay shit for any of my phones.  Once
Sprint bought them out they nosed dived faster then... then... I cannot
even think of anything.  Those ETF are like a prison, you sign up for
what you think is a good deal then a couple months later you regret the
decision and are stuck with it for another 22 months.

 

Yes,
a contract is a contract, but it shouldn't consistently take >30
seconds or a minute to send a text message, or to not have service
downtown Anywhere. We are legally responsible for our end but there
seems to be little to none on theirs because "speeds and services are
not guaranteed" ETF lock you in so they can suck all they want

 There's a segment of society that believe they are owed something for very little, if any, work. This attitude is obviously beginning to permeate the upper echelons of business as politics has been affected in this manner for years. 

And just like politics, we are left trying to choose who will fuck us over the least in the next few years we will have them.

Sad really. No other nation I've been to is as bad as my birth nation about this. In a thousand years when historians look back at the nation known as America, they will chuckle and say, "Ah yes, the ever lazier nation that ate itself from within for lack of the desire to get up and go farm for itself."

I agree. And not only that, I think almost all of these phone contracts have a 30 day period where you can quit the service with no penalty.
