What have the Mobile Carriers ever done for us?

Here's a little ditty I composed after reading another "oh, what have the carriers done for us" post, with apologies to Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Reg: They've bled us white, the bastards. They've taken everything we had, and not just from us, from our fathers, and from our fathers' fathers.

Stan: And from our fathers' fathers' fathers.

Reg: Yeah.

Stan: And from our fathers' fathers' fathers' fathers.

Reg: Yeah. All right, Stan. Don't labour the point. And what have they ever given us in return?!

Xerxes: Text Messaging?

Reg: What?

Xerxes: Text Messaging, you know SMS.

Reg: Oh. Yeah, yeah. They did give us that. Uh, that's true. Yeah.

Commando 3: And premium billing.

Stan: Oh, yeah, premium billing, Reg. Remember what digital content sales on the internet used to be like?

Reg: Yeah. All right. I'll grant you the SMS and the Premium Billing are two things that the Mobile Operators have done.

Matthias: And the games!

Reg: Well, yeah. Obviously the games. I mean, the games go without saying, don't they? But apart from the SMS, the premium billing, and the games--

Commando: Ringtones.

Xerxes: Wallpapers.

Commandos: Huh? Heh? Huh...

Commando 2: WAP.

Commandos: Ohh...

Reg: Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.

Commando 1: And the video.

Commandos: Oh, yes. Yeah...

Francis: Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss, Reg, if the Mobile Operators left. Huh.

Commando: Content Portals.

Stan: And you can sell 15 seconds of music for $2.99, Reg.

Francis: Yeah, they certainly know how to create a content market. Let's face it. They're the only ones who could on the internet!

Hehh, heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.

Reg: But apart from the SMS, the Billing, Games, Wallpapers, WAP, Video, Content Portals, a $billion content market, and billions of subscribers, what have the Mobile Operators ever done for us?

Xerxes: Created the mobile industry?

Reg: Oh, ind-- Shut up!

"What have the Mobile Carriers ever done for us?" was a nice and interesting post i would like to add that The main part to recycling your old mobile is the cash incentives you can get for them. Thanks to government legislation and pressure from Environmental organizations, there are now mobile phone recycling initiatives under way that give people a way and a means to safely dispose of, and recycle old mobiles (and similar electrical gadgets) in an Environmentally friendly way for cash.

Because of the cash paid out for the sell mobile phones, you can even get cash for broken, non-working mobiles. Sometimes at a massive 80% of the working value. And the payment methods available such as Gift Vouchers with more on top instead of the cash value. And that it is a free service to sell and recycle your mobile to a mobile recycling service. This has proven to be very beneficial to the people that have used them to do just that. Sell and recycle working or broken mobile phones and more for cash.
