Stuck in a cell phone contract? Well Trade My Cellular has come up a with a unique solution to help consumers get out of cell phone contracts. The concept is fairly simple. Since wireless providers let you transfer the liability of an account Trade My Cellular has set up a web site to connect you to someone who might take yours over. Has anyone tried this out?
Also Jeff Silva wrote an article yesterday detailing the Early Termination Fee Battle and associated lawsuits. A lot of money must be at stake as the carriers really don't want to give you a way to leave them. Wouldn't it be better for them to provide outstanding service and make you want to stay rather than force you? I can see the need to recoup any phone subsidies but beyond that you should be free to leave if you're unhappy. Wouldn't you agree?
