Nice job! We have to remember that in '03 Cingular was sued for $30m for ETF's. That's where it all started.

the consumer thinks they are always being hit with something. You watch the more that people say they are being hurt by these large phone companies the fcc and other government agency are going to crush the industry with regulations. People think they are getting what they want when companies like sprint atat vz are being sued, but it hurts the people that work there and it hurts the consumer. its not hard to understand that people need to take responsibility for their own actions. don't have a contract if you can not handle it. the choices are there but people just want something to complain about because the rest of their lives are unhappy. When all the cool phones are going because companies are shutting down people will quickly forget how they cried and cried about such pettie things as 200 or 175 etf. it will cost so much more.

i never understood how a company is willing to hand out an expensive cell phone for a rather reduced cost i.e. vzw 8330 is 429.99 full retail but with 2 yr and mir its 99.99. so any cell companie takes a 400-500 hit when commision and inital set up costs are figured it whenever a new cust is taken on, and to recover some of the cost the etf is assessed. and cust sign up for this deal knowingly aware of it. then go to the govnment and say hey this isnt fare. one can always buy a phone at full retail and have no contract to worry about
