No crippling please...
Authored by: rlandlaus on Jan 17, '07 06:37:18AM

I know most of these are "me too's":
It's been years that I pay full price for any of our phones/pda's. Even if it's cost me more than double the "subsidized" prices everytime.

I've made the mistake of buying 1.0 one too many times 5 years ago.

Cingular?! You've gotta be kidding me! Pay $500 for the privilege of being ripped off by the most incompetent company across the board? Have you ever tried to get anything done with those people? The single worst company I've ever had the misfortune to deal with.

No VOIP? No Skype? No Developer Apps? No Batteries? Why Don't they just manufacture a pretty shell with some blinking lights, call it the NoPhone, sell that for $500? People WILL buy it just cause it's so cute and spare us the agony of finding out how useless it really is?

I currently use a Nokia e61 in the US! Bought in the grey market IN the US! Just go to Amazon. Those in the know, know that if I was a normal person I'd be using the e62 in the US!! And do you know what the difference between the 2 is? No! Not the price: they both cost $500. The ONLY difference is that the e62 has the WIFI function crippled out of it so the likes of Cingular would sell them to the american public.

I really think there should be laws that prohibit the crippling of technological advances on any device in any market. But of course too many are feeding of this state of affairs, not the least of which are the likes of Apple's Jobs and that onslaught of moronic "politicians" sharpening their claws in anticipation of the coming masquerade we learned to call "Presidential Elections".

Just my $0.02 worth.
