i wonder if any of this is due to softbank. if so, i wonder if this is a sign of things to come with sprint and anyone else they buy into.

Sprint is pushing another alternative to One Up and Framily, Easy Pay. Which allows a customer to buy a device for a small down payment, and pay off the rest in 24 monthly installments.

I really hope that some day there will be a "good guy" company to come in and revolutionize the way that wireless phones and plans are marketed and priced.

The way the current wireless companies are pricing phones and plans reeks of collusion in order to keep prices high.

I just bought my wife a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 which for all intents and purposes is a Galaxy S3 phone with a larger display and none of the phone components in it. I paid $149.99 for the Galaxy Tab, but if I bought a Galaxy S3 outright, I would likely pay more than $600 for the phone brand new. Without a doubt, this price is way too high and should be considered price gouging.

Data rates are ridiculously expensive as well. There is no way I should have to pay $30 - $40 monthly for unlimited data.

Someday we will look back at this time and shake our heads at our stupidity for accepting mediocre service at an exorbitant price.

i agree, but you also have to take into account the US dollar value drop. expect everything to be ridiculously more expensive than usual this year.

imagine if cell phone towers were real towers with telephone operators in them. i actually think humanity isnt smart enough to live if robots took over all jobs. if that happened socialism would take over and capitalism wouldn't be needed anymore. which mike said.
