That makes no sense. I've been with Verizon for over 15 years with no plan to leave. I choose to stay with Verizon, they didn't trick me.
Exactly. Whether anyone likes or dislikes the way they have replaced the old 2-year-contract-with-a-"free"-phone model with interest free financing over time, who the heck doesn't clearly understand it's essentially the same thing. Do it or don't, but nobody is being tricked. Not liking an option doesnt mean you don't udnerstand it.
