Your Call 021308 Cell Hell

Why are American cell phones so lousy? On the next Your Call we look at the spotty reception, incomprehensible service plans, and crippled phones Americans live with. The rest of the world doesn't live this way, why do we? How did US cell service end up so inferior to what they have in Europe and Japan? What tools do we already have to get a good phone and a good contract and how do we get politicians behind reform that would improve the lives of nearly every American over age 12? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
