They are greedy money grubbers that abuse their power. They use deceptive advertising, out right lies and emotional enticement to lock uninformed people into overpriced contracts and then they stick it to them if they want to get out.
I have lived in other countries and they have a more straight forward approach. Like in Brazil where it cost you nothing to have an active cell phone that can receive calls, no contract, no expiration date, nothing. You only pay when you make a call. So every poor person in the country can have a cell phone and you can call them at no cost to them. They can get a monthly plan if they want or can afford one, but they can have the phone and service without one. Do you think one of the US companies would do something like this? Not on your life!
