A question for all.

Is having a cellphone a right or privilege? I've heard a lot of talk and discussion lately about changes that may or may not be coming. There are many consumers that feel they have a right of entitlement. Honestly I'm getting sick of hearing it.

I am not sure where you are going with this, but it is neither a right or a privilege...For many people it is a necessity. And while some consumers can be ridiculous, many are tired of rising prices and anti-consumer policies.

That being said, I still do not really know what specifically you are talking

A large number of consumers are entitled. There was once a day when a dollar had more value than just money. Having a dollar meant you worked for it. Having a dollar opened doors.

As the notion of cost has changed, so has the value of a dollar.

A dollar isn't worth much on it's own, at least when compared to the past. Besides debt, inflation, and the devaluation of money, the value of a dollar is all bust extinct. It takes a lot of dollars to live for most people, and for others, they don't even need ten percent of one to survive when someone else ...
