Cell Phone Networks Are A Hive Of Filth And Contagion
by Dagmar at 5:54 pm EDT, Aug 26, 2011

OKay so perhaps my summary is slightly histrionic, but...

I have been saying for months and months now that I refuse to have a smartphone because the carriers force you to take a data plan... which means my phone would be on their network 24/7, subject to whatever things they've failed to keep in check, and compounded by that they don't want me to have the level of control necessary to firewall that shit out and are willing to enforce that by contract.

Well, it's nice to see that someone else agrees with me and that cell phone networks are about as nasty as the typical cablemodem netblock or college campus network of the 90's.
