Senator SchumerSenator Charles Schumeris making cell phone users' rights his "appealing to the cell-phone contigency" issue, and he says that many NY area mobile service providers have hidden fees. The Cell Phone Users Bill of Rights was unveiled in February, with issues like being able to keep your phone number when you switch providers and better cell phone quality (like access to 911).

The Mercury News' Mike Landberg agrees with the premise of the bill and goes through it clearly.

The only two NY area providers not to tack on hidden fees: T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
