Sky-high cancellation fees for cell phone contracts could soon be a thing of the past, but getting there is proving to be difficult. The Federal Communications Commission has put forward a plan to regulate carriers' ability to charge you for ending your agreement early -- but not everyone in the industry agrees it's a good idea. The plan, proposed Thursday by FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, would require carriers to prorate the fees based on the remaining length of the contract. It would also base the fees on the cost of phones, so a cheaper model would result in a lower fee.

What about the HUGE cancellation fees that Directv charges when they restart your contract without your knowledge? Shouldn't they be held accountable also?
