The difference is that you don't get your laptop from your ISP, and your laptop doesn't have ISP branding or run software created by the ISP.

The thing is, when you buy carrier equipment, you don't really own it, you are basically just borrowing it from the carrier. That's something that people don't want to hear, but it's true.

The solution is to not buy carrier equipment, buy only unlocked, carrier unbranded phones at full retail price.
