On one hand, Mac users claim that they happily pay more money for Macs because of aesthetics, convenience, etc. But on the other hand, Mac users get all bent out of shape when other companies charge for convenience features. So Apple is the only company that is allowed to do whatever it wants and charge more for no reason. Mac users like telling people "If you don't like it, then don't buy it", or "It's a free market", or the typical "Nobody is holding a gun to your head." But I guess that doesn't apply to the people who say those words.
The problem is, w/ AT&T, we don't have a choice. The gun *is* pointed at our heads. We can't *not* buy the messages. That's the problem.
So no, this isn't fanboiism, this is just simply not wanting to be forced to pay for a system we haven't chosen to use.
I'll gladly pay extra *for a better product*. This ain't it.
