    There have been a lot of good points brought up on this threat and alot of useless ones.

    First and foremost - You will have a bad experiance like the one David had with just about any service company out there. I've yet to bring a company with Customer Service or Tech Support up and not be able to find one person who isn't happy with them. It's the law of averages.

    Secondly, how productive was this post really? Why focus it on just one experiance? Can you honestly base you entire opinion of a company off of one bad rep? A company like T-Mobile has to have thousands of reps and there's bound to be a few bad apples in the bunch. They can't be all that bad if they have been ranked by JD Powers as having the Best Wireless Customer Service for the last 4 studies they conducted.

    You can try and justify it by the number of negative comments posted by people about T-Mobile, but truly - Are people more likely to whine and complain or praise a company? A bad experiance will be repeated over and over, but a good one maybe once or twice...Logical, I think not.

    Third, several people have compared the $9.99 to how much Rudy makes in one hour. What about your man hours spent on this? Are you that hard up for cash that you have to spend what probably has amounted to several hours on this that you have to make a stink about it?

    You can sit here and say that it's the principle of the issue and such, but is it really? Or was it a quick easy way to come up with your column? Make you look good, like a knight on a white horse - fighting against the big bad cell phone company, while making T-Mobile look like the Wicked Witch of the west?

    Come on people grow up. I find 90% of this thread childish.
