Replying to: Re: Need More Regulations by Rusty Shackleford
Evidently, you didn't see the depth of the article. The "Costs of cellular communications" should be estimated in billable services BEFORE adding in the subsidy of the device. This should include everything with running a business. Once the device is paid off, one should only have to pay for these extended running services. Not for something already paid off. What is so hard to see about that. We are not complaining about paying for the cost of cellular communication. If you don't upgrade your handset after contract expires, you're starting to pay for that device all over again. Laws prevent this in all other industries. But, by your definition, it is perfectly ok for the wireless industry?
Next time you pay off a purchase of an appliance from a retailer, maybe they should keep charging you for it. Because afterall, they have operating costs to pay for.
