Can someone please explain to me why wireless companies make it so difficult to upgrade phones?
I am currently a Cingular customer and have been for 4+ years. I have 10 months left on my current 2 yr contract and am ready to make the jump to a Blackberry for both my wife and I. BUT Cingular won't let me upgrade unless I pay a fortune for the phones ($299 each phone). To cancel the contract would only be $300 and I could get free BBs with any other provider. Go figure!
Has anyone ever cancelled a contract with a provider only to go right back to that same provider? For instance, if I cancelled with Cingular is there anything to prevent me from going right back to them? Can I port my same phone numbers to them? This is such a pain!!
Any advice on how to work around this would be much appreciated!
