The bottom line

The bottom line is you no longer really own anything - including your phone. The vendor or service provider graciously allows you to use it while you continue to fork out, and they reserve the right to tamper with it at will. Plus, they don't give a fetid dingo's goolies (thanks Douglas Adams) whether it even really works, let alone whether it poses a risk to you - as long as you keep forking out.
