Re: on the customer side

that's just it... I've been using mobile phones for over ten years now, and havne't had a single phone - smart or dumb - from any carrier that has either:
•Survived two full years of use
•Survived and been considered usable afterward
So many phones after even the first year just seem to magically stop having as good a reception, nevermind battery life.

Sad as it is, I wouldn't be surprised if they were all programmed in the firmware level to basically stop trying to get a signal after day 366 of use. all so these contract providers can mandate you to either sign on for an additional two years, or pay $800 for even their basic phones.
