I'm with number 6, I hate text fees. Ugh. I use iMessages most of the time, but have some friends on Android. So I'm stuck with the text message costs.

Charges for incoming text messages should be added to the list. Grrrrrr!

The “regulatory recovery fee” that is added to many cable/phone bills drives me crazy. In addition to the profit they already make from everyone, that are adding an additional fee to cover their cost for complying with the law. I should try that if I get a ticket on my way to work, “Sorry boss, I am going to have to charge the company a regulatory recovery fee because I got pulled over this morning.”  

 

In addition, I would definately “+1” cable modem rental fees. A month or so ago I was complaining to a friend that I had to spend money to replace my modem after only 3 years, and he responded with the comment, “That’s why I just rent mine.”

 

I asked him if he had ever added up the rental fees for his modem, so he figured it out and determined that he had paid nearly $700 for his modem. He went from being smug to being annoyed in about 20 seconds.
