Alright... and for the sake of full disclosure, I cannot legally enter any contract with a mobile phone carrier... I am legally unable due to my status with a certain federal agency. So, I did not buy a phone... I bought a Nokia N800 - a Debian-Linux-based Maemo tablet from, yes, four or five years ago. Yes, five-year-old technology isn't all that "cool" these days, but my point is that I am free. I have a device that I can modify to my heart's content - because it is true full-blooded Linux, and not that Apache-license garbage... full GNU. It doesn't even have a cellular radio in it, so I could care less about mobile phone providers. It was cheap WITHOUT entering into a stupid contract, and so I am free... and I do not owe someone else $350 for the privilege of leaving to go elsewhere with a device I am already using.
