In 2010, regional carrier U.S. Cellular instituted the "The Belief Project" which asked customers to sign an initial two-year contract; after that two-year period expired, subscribers were allowed to purchase a subsidized handset without having to affix their John Hancock on another two-year pact.

Were you ever a U.S. Cellular customer? They're better than Sprint in most cases.

With more and more poeple buying unlocked phones and using Straighttalk and other non-contract companies you are going to start seeing the Contract Carriers losing customers and they will start increasing ETF's, etc etc...anything they need to do to make up the lost in revenue.

Restocking fees are an absolute joke. I'd use stronger language if it'd post.
