Phone contracts are very binding, but binding to the point of needing a petition to get you out of your contracts? I’ve always signed phone contracts and never had any need or reason to opt out early. So I don’t get the full urgency of this petition, but maybe some of you out there are well-versed in the difficulty of ending a contract with a phone company. You’re obviously not alone.
“So here’s your chance: sign this petition to tell Verizon to end carrier contracts and create an affordable way for consumers to purchase their devices. You don’t have to leave Verizon or have plans to leave. I’ve been a long-time Verizon customer and I don’t see myself ever leaving; but I want that choice myself; I don’t want them making it for me and imposing stiff penalties if I do decide to leave.”
