$40 "plus other fees" WTF?
Saw this at a bus stop the other day:
Doesn’t the “plus other fees” make the “$40” kind of meaningless? Why don’t they just say “$1 plus other fees”? That would be just as meaningful. How much are these other fees? For what are you paying these other fees? My guess is they mean at least that $6.95 “system access fee” they always charge, but isn’t it rather ridiculous to say you are getting a certain number of minutes, browsing & incoming (but apparently not outgoing) text messaging for $40, when obviously you can’t use those features without “accessing the system.”
