Ya know, buddy, if you want to lock yourself into a contract with a company like a Verizon and pay through the nose for mediocre service and put up with all the gotchas they come up with in addition to an outrageous monthly fee, then by all means, be my guest. But I'm going to say flat out, that YES they do screw you this way. You have to sign the contract and allow it, so if you do then you deserve that porking and trust me they will pork the living hell out of you if you let them.
If you wanna believe they are all saints and looking out for you, all I can say is best of luck to you and you have a HUGE learning curve ahead of you, and don't be surprised if they pick your wallet clean. It's business and their business is to make as much as they possibly can - they don't give a damn about you, only your money.
But I'll leave you to your delusions to learn that life's lesson the hard way. It's easy to be naÃ¯ve when you're in school and have no experience in the real world where they kick you in the balls just because they enjoy that sort of thing.
