Hey, you know how when you sign up for cell phone service it cost like 75 bazillion dollars if you cancel your service? That might end soon.

A proposal to the Federal Communications Commission states that the wireless industry should give consumers the chance to cancel service without any penalty for up to 30 days after they sign a cell phone contract or until 10 days after they receive their first bill.

Sounds good.. but not good enough for some consumer groups. They don't like that part of the proposal would let cell phone companies off the hook for lawsuits already pending.

"If this plan goes through, the nation's largest cell phone carriers get a get-out-of-court-free card," said Chris Murray, senior counsel for Consumers Union, in Wired magazine. "We have long opposed limiting consumers' rights to sue, and that seems to be what we're doing here."
