The model of buying a phone and then shopping for carriers will never work in the U.S. until the government gets involved and mandates that all carriers use the same type of network (GSM or CDMA) and same frequencies.
How exactly would the US government be able to mandate the technology that a company is paying for with their own money?
Otherwise, unless they're footing the bill, the government can't tell a company what technology to use to serve its customers.
Anonymous poster, lol.
Why is the electricity coming out of your socket 120v and 60 hz? Why is your steering wheel on the left? why does your car have a seat belt? Why does your water bill come in english and not Klingon?
You laugh at an Anon when you don't seem to know what you're talking about. LOL!
Electricity = Public Utility, not private company. Steering wheel on the left; if you want it on the right, you can get a British built vehicle. There is nothing mandating that a steering wheel be on the left side. Seat belt, safety item, and what is mandated is a restraint system not necessarily seat belts. You can get your water bill here (which is again from a public utility) in English, Spanish, French, or Hmong.
So your point was?--
