The tinfoil hat in me fully expects them to use this to kill the used phone market, jail breaking, and any number of other things that are consumer-unfriendly. "Oh, you lost your phone and don't qualify for a new free one yet? Sorry, you can't buy a used one from your bud. You have to buy a new one from VZW/ATT/etc." This is a solution rife with problems for the consumer.

It's Presidential Primary Season here in New Hampshire, so we get at least one call per day, and those are exempt from the Do Not Call list. Sometimes it's a recording of the candidate. Sometimes it's a supporter of one of the candidates. Sometimes it's a pollster. A lot of the time it's a supporter of a candidate posing as a pollster. Those are easy to tell because the questions are leading.
