This is just my rant about “Roaming fees”…
Why is it that in North America I can walk into a grocery store and have a selection of 25 different types and flavours of tea bags, walk into a mall and have a selection of 12 different shoe stores and yet my mobile carrier only offers me 3 different pay as you go plans and they are all based on me paying ridiculous roaming fees?
Isn’t the whole premise of having a mobile phone based on being mobile? So who the heck invented “Roaming”? If I ever meet the geek, I will personally impale him! I have been home for 3 weeks and have paid over a $100.00 to use my mobile phone. I have tried every plan they offer but none of them wave a magic wand and make my roaming, gypsy self happy.
Usually I’m poking fun at Italy for being so archaic and still stuck in the 1950’s when it comes to shopping malls and International food selection, but in regards to mobile phones they rock! Someone calls me, I don’t pay, I call someone and I pay, bloody brilliant! Why can’t the N. American phone companies get their act together and realize that those who have mobile phones will roam, wander, and saunter about? If I wanted to stay in one place then I wouldn’t need a mobile phone would I!
