    5 WAYS iPhone Users Get "Ripped" Off

    http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9178836/5_ways_iPhone_users_get_ripped_off?source=toc

    This article is beyond ridiculous.

    One of the reasons we are getting "ripped off" is because we pay for data plans that CPworld claims "we don't use."

    Another is the cost to Tether your iPhone to a computer. Nearly every phone has an extra charge for tethering!

    They also throw out that we pay $18 for an upgrade fee. Is that not done with Verizon or T-Mobile?

    Has computerworld always been so anti Apple?

    Tmobile doesnt charge an upgrade fee and u can tether for free if ur phone has the capability. Also Tmobile lets u get out of ur contract once u reach a certain number of days (120 I think) pay a $200 fee. u can stay and use a contractless plans (~$20-50/mo savings). or go somewhere else with ur phone.

    I've read the article. What I choose to keep in mind is it's just one writer, and one opinion. It's not a big deal really.

    Good job getting enraged and then linking to it so everyone can click on it and CW can serve up more ads and bolster revenue, thereby justifying the article's sensationalist slant in the first place. They're probably laughing at you right now.

    It took a lot of thought to arrive at those reasons! Computerworld.com is just a garbage publication.

    Why not just say the iPhone isn't for lower-income customers?

    :confused:

    Tomorrow's headlines: "ComputerWorld.com bought out by Sprint!"

    It sounds like it was written by another phone company, not really an iPhone hater.

    T-Mobile still have an upgrade fee. Some customers can get it waived but it's definitely still there.
