I want a new phone every year. thats the reason I sign up for 2 years contract.
now I have to sign 1 year contract, pay $70 more....
I guess I have to buy from bestbuy....
And now that I look at it, BB's "retail" prices are grossly, grossly over-inflated.
Think back a few years......back in the 70's my parents got a new rotary dial phone and it was hard wired to one spot in the house. It was the basic phone rented from a small town telephone company. They had that phone from 1973 to 2001 when we finally broke down and bought them a new phone. At that time the phones only placed and received calls, had one annoying bell ringer and you had to run back to the house when someone called.
All things considered do we really have it so bad?
Many experts beleive this is what the earlier phones may have looked like, but nobody has actually seen one.
We live in an economy where every consumer feels they are "owed" something. The sad truth.. that is not the case. I say shop around to get the best deals. Now buying at best buy is a GREAT idea. 50% of sales come from the indirect channel aka best buy, wal mart, frys, cosco, diamond wireless and so on. If they offer it cheaper.. why not?
One thing that I've learned is that no company values loyalty anymore. It's sad, but true.

Yes, that's also reflected in how people have to switch careers or jobs ie we also value options more than loyalty.
