I refuse, I refuse, I. REFUSE. to upgrade nor renew my contract until that mandatory data package and its blasted fee is made optional. I do not need to access the web on my phone and will not pay to do so when I don't even use it.
AH i know! i have t-mobile and my contract is up very soon but all the phones i want require a $29.99/month data service!! my parents pay my phone bill (we're on a family plan, thankfully) but they've said they can't afford an extra $360/year just for internet on my phone...since we only pay $10 total for unlimited texting/picture messages on all 5 of our lines. which i totally understand but i can't afford to pay myself either.
it sucks because i really want a cool new phone but can't have one =[
