Re: A good start. Do your homework on European wireless plans, they pay a lot less than us per month even after you consider the $20 or so a month that goes to subsidies. And the high MSRP's can be worked around by buying second hand, from ebay or something along those lines, I've outright bought and sold countless phones on ebay and you can get phones that are only 6 months old for half the MSRP.
Would it be nicer if the MSRP's dropped, no doubt. But contract less plans which are in the majority overseas, and inter operable phones that you buy outright drive down service prices.
