Jamie Chadwick has an idea for a new business. Since cellphone plans are so complex, people need help finding the the best plan at the best price. He helps them do just that, in exchange for a chunk of their savings, at Save Cell Communications.
I’ve reprinted his letter and response to my questions below. But I wonder why such a business is needed. Aren’t mobile phone companies good at communications? Isn’t that their core expertise? Apparently not.
Meanwhile, reader Mike is upset with wireless data plans. He thinks they’re too expensive in Canada and not keeping pace with what’s going on internationally. I’ll let him get into the details, but I have an interest. I carry a BlackBerry and pay those bills myself.
