How can you call it a contract and then not honor it.
People sign those cell phone contracts because they get an inexpensive phone and of course the cost of the phone is spread out over a couple of years. But, now a judge in California has thrown a monkey wrench into the arrangement.
The judge says it is illegal in California for now, but this could spread across the country. It’s illegal to lock a customer down for one year or two years in a cell phone contract.
I see a problem with that. I kind of like the low price of two years and if I want to go month-to-month I can do that. There are companies that offer that. But, to walk in and say, “There is no contract here”. You’ve signed on the dotted line. You got the cheap phone. You got the low rate. But, now that you’ve been in it for about a year or maybe six months you’ve decided that you don’t want to be bound by it anymore. And a judge says you can simply walk out of the agreement.
That’s not an American way of doing business.
