You pay to talk to me!

I just received my first telemarketer phone call on my cell phone. WTF. I thought they were supposed to know the cell phone prefixes and were barred from calling them. This brings me to another thing: why the heck do we (in the U.S.) have to pay for incoming calls on cell phones? I’ve heard that it’s common for the caller to pay in other countries, which makes sense and it’s what we do for landlines!

Oh… I just realized that I have the first incoming minute free so I didn’t get charged for that call. Well, whatever. I’m still sort of mad.

    I have Sprint PCS, and it’s an old retention plan they game me when I threatened to leave, hehe.
