Re: Locked hadsets are wrong...
> a setup that does not really benefit people
Seriously? You want everyone to pay £300-£500+ for handsets up front? It might be cheaper in the long-run if you can afford to buy your handsets and then take out a SIM-free contract or use PAYG, but most people prefer not to fork out so much and are happy with a free* or cheap* handset up front, even if that means their monthly cost is more.
Also, with your model, operators would not be able to tie people in to contracts, and so as their revenue would be a lot more unpredictable, you can be certain that the cost of calls / data / texts would go up.
