Comment A quote for the times: (Score 1) 1135

"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
-- C. S. Lewis

Not sure if they're actually located in Marshall, TX. I found this public record:

HOUSTON, TX 77062-6212

If anyone can get corporate officials' names and phone numbers that would be interesting.

Comment Mandatory data plan requirements... (Score 1) 182

should be investigated by Congress -- just my opinion, but to force customers to pay an extra surcharge per month to buy the product should be illegal but only if it can be proved that all of the wireless providers colluded to force the customer into this racket. I think the odds of this being the case are high since every provider is perpetuating this scam.

Case in point: I already have a work provided wireless device that provides a data plan, I don't need to pay an extra monthly fee on my personal mobile phone for another data plan.

All of the wireless providers are requiring compulsary data plans in order to activate a smartphone or PDA now. It's my opinion that this should be illegal, but then I guess if it was a real lawyer would've started a class action lawsuit by now. I definately believe it enriches a small few and is not in the interest of consumers.
