Re: grassroots propaganda?
"Compatible" has nothing to do with it. Facetime is "compatible" with a data connection. This is an arbitrary demand for a specific rate plan to use an app which only requires a normal Internet connection.
"Free to switch" is BS in an industry which uses 2-year contracts and has exclusive bundles with hardware manufacturers.
Nobody was ever forced to accept a contract to have cellular service.
You have an option of paying retail for a no commitment service with a carrier.
If you want an expensive phone without the initial outlay of cash, buy it with your credit card at retail and pay it off in installments. No contract required.
