It seems that some people would rather die than stay with their cell phone contracts. Or at least pretend to be dead. The Washington Post writes that Corey Taylor sent Verizon a fake death certificate to avoid paying 175 $ for canceling his contract.
According to the Post, a large number of Americans are unhappy with the services of their carriers. Most of them are bound to the carriers by long term contracts. Complaints against the cancellation fees are reported to have sharply increased since iPhone hit market in the US.
While not everybody would perhaps go to such extremes as Corey Taylor, one might just ask if iPhone should not be banned as dangerous. It could turn out to be mortal among cell phone users.
