Perhaps one thing I would like changed in the year 2010 are the cellphone contracts and the cellular service providers.
Instead of offering cheaper deals on cellphones for 2 year contracts, I would probably rather like something fair, meaning it would be 1 year contract.
For example, let’s say you bought an iPhone for $60/month with a 2 year contract. Over 2 years, you would literally be paying $1440 for the freakin’ phone!
Of course that includes your talk time too but still, it’s a LOT of money to pay over a period of time.
I think cellular service providers have been ripping off consumers for as long as I can remember.
Cellular service providers already provide no-contact services but then you have to pay in full for your new cellphone. That’s not what I am talking about, what I am talking about is shorter term contracts but the price for the phone is still the same.
I just paid about $5000 last year for all of my cellphone and broadband card services, that’s a whole lot of money, equal to almost buying THREE 42-inch HDTVs. (or maybe even 4)
Do you have any ideas that can make cellphone contracts more fair for consumers? Leave in the comments, thanks!
