I am sure some of you may remember my whole fiasco with getting out of my T-mobile plan. I stuck with them for quite some time despite the poor reception (in my town) and lack of phone selections. When my contract expired, I immediately made a switch over to US Cellular - mostly because they don't require I continue contracts after the initial one. I figure I could give them a try and then cancel later if I ever changed my mind. I ended up sticking with US Cellular because they delivered as promised. Had I wanted to change, however, it would have been much easier with US Cellular than the traditional carriers that required long term contracts.
According to a study conducted by U.S. Cellular over four regions of the country, 56% of respondents admitted to being unhappy with their carrier but only 35% have ever broken up with their provider. In spite of the overall dissatisfaction with their carrier, respondents are hesitant to call it quits - mostly because they feel it is too expensive to get out of a contract.
