Important Extra Fees

* Important advice: Setup fees are just a trick to make a bit more money. Most carriers will accept to waive that fee if you call them to complain about it BEFORE subscribing to one of their service plans. Appear scandalized when they tell you about the fee and say you will kill the deal and you'll see how fast any setup fee will disappear.

** Carriers typically also charge special taxes that vary depending on the state
