    what i have problem with the most is the random so called network fees they incur every now and then without notice. and customers have no way to say no to it.. they just appear on your bill every few months... wireless industry is turning into bull crap.

    FCC once again fails to do the right thing!!! Both rules should be law and enforced within 30 days.

    Not leaving it to the companies to do the right thing. They only "do the right thing" when forced to by law.

    Another example of how cowardly the FCC has become!!
