Waiting on the telephone
I'm surprised that the big three haven't tried doing this with their "pay-as-you-go" type phones before now. After all, you don't need much. And vending machines keep better hours than most mobile phone shops.
On the other hand, this machine also does the "monthly-bill" type phones too. Not too sure if it talks you through the packages or just has one standard one stuck in there.
Still this type of thing would be really useful for evading detection (if with the credit card payment system). What do I mean? Stolen (or cloned) credit card and you now own a phone with no digital trail to you. Use for a month and dump. No shop assistant to remember you. Fingerprints probably long gone by the time the fraud is detected.
Useful for all the wrong people.
Or do I just have a devious mind?
