when John Kerry and friends convince congress to pass a law prohibiting exclusive carrier/ manufacturer deals on cell phones, and stopping the devices from being locked to particular carriers, the people will get exactly what they asked for.

No more subsidized phones, no more 2 year contracts to get the subsidized phone. you will have to pay the full retail value of the phone, and when you have a problem with your phone, you will have to settle that issue with the manufacturer, not the carrier.

be careful of what you ask for, you may get it.

That's not an entirely bad deal. Your going to pay full price for the phone with the 2 year contract anyways.Both sides have their ups and downs.

yes you have a valid argument like many people before you have had, but you will only fail like the countless others before you. It happens with every wireless carrier

No one follows through with it. When I lived in California I had about 100,000 people, and when the time came all of them dropped of the face of the world. I tried a few more times, and every time it has failed. IF you want something done about it you have to put the time and effort. If you don't how are people supposed to take you seriously. There is no lawsuit where you will get punitive damages you can only change the law. No one is getting hurt, and you are not losing your phone. The best thing that'll happen is Apple/ATTM has to unlock the phones like in other countries where it is Illegal to lock a phone to a specific carrier.
