    If you have a smartphone service that costs you $900 to $1200 US per year to talk on the phone, then you are also easily led.

    lol I deactivate data on my phone as I was not using it at all. I always go to the same customers and all their wi-fi are setup in my phone so no need for data plan

    Also, Do you have cable TV. I do not.
    Some people are paying $1400 US per year for TV with HBO and Cinemax.
    Add broadband - about $700 US + TV $1400 + phone $900 = $3000 US to do stuff ?
    Take me to the leader.

    I don't have one of those . Neither do I have cable TV. We have an excellent free satellite service here.

    Ok. I also have discontinued TV service and use broadband internet only. No smartphone. Then again, some folks need smartphones to work. IMO, it's not just a simple thing. We are all victims and controlled by something. From the shopping center, to your wife or husband, to the pharmacy, to the workplace... what else is there?

    Yes, that is what marketing is about.

    No need to fall victim to it all the time - if you know what you are looking for you can make active choices instead of being led.

    I will give a hint.

    I am not in IT.

    That sounds like a lot to me.

    Still - you have to keep the family happy ....

    I pay $189.00 per month for cable tv (just the basic regular channels without HBO, Cinamex, Sports), Internet, and 2 telephone numbers.
    I pay $99 per month for 2 wireless phones and I think that is a fortune (US)
