I was very dissapointed to see this crucial point not made in the review. Its not "only" 20 bucks.

The tying of licencies to IMEI numbers is merely a way of ripping you off. Nor should it have anything to do with forcing you to annual dealsl And even then not everyone does it. I have bought programs from Lumisoft several years and another phone ago, that is still use on my current phone. They are decent enough to simply update the thing for you if you email them. There are other software I own that I have used for similarly long times.

As for how long you keep the phone, this too is irrelevant. People should not be milked like this. Nor is keeping a phone a long time a sin.
