As they proved with their election of the Terminator, California is well on it’s way to turning the world on it’s head. A new legislation’s been introduced to help customers tell their carriers to kick rocks and keep their current cell phone, all wrapped in a little something called Senate Bill 158.
The senator is calling for new legislation. Consumers would be able to use their cell phone even after changing carriers. “We see it as the government standing up for consumers where consumers have no choice,” said Florez. “This is a monopoly if you think about it.”
“If you buy it and you do, you should be able to change to any carrier without any additional charges you own it, not Cingular, Nextel,” said cell phone owner Kurt Dalton. Bluetooth owner Dalton added that the Blackberry, Razor [sic], and the hottest phone in the future are still going to sell.
Well then. If the possibility of this bill getting passed doesn’t brighten your day, I don’t know what will. Unfortunately, I’m stuck in -21 weather. And this bill doesn’t affect Canada. Cue the violin.
