So if I buy a GE fridge and GE stocks it with food and says I must buy food from them only or be taken to court. Stupid. If I pay for it then it is mine to do so as i wish. BS. If they want it this way then offer phones for a $3/mo lease fee and upgrades after a year. I leave the carrier then get a phone from another. Just don't sell me something and then tell me what I am "allowed" to do with it.
