Having choices and picking simply based on cost is worthwhile sometimes.
e.g. I use a locked-in pay-as-you-go non-free Nokia phone, and as I don't
use *any* of its features bar a very little predictive text messaging and
phone calls, nor can imagine myself ever using any of its other features
(keyboards large enough and ergnomic enough not to trigger agonizing RSI
are far too large for a mobile device), the non-freedom simply isn't an
issue. I wouldn't want to do more with a freed phone than I currently do
with a non-free one, and the non-free one does everything I need it to.
