said by itguy05:How appropriate: Share your Paycheck!
With Verizon's Share your Paycheck plan $200 for 2 iPhones and 1 Dumbphone is unacceptable
$24,000 of your paycheck over 10 years. Hope everyone really likes their smart phones.

Re: If Prices Go Down.
said by itguy05:Oh, we're only comparing to Verizon postpaid? I'm thinking we were comparing prepaid to all prepaid options, not just Verizon. Because $60 is expensive for prepaid.
Cause on Postpaid Share Your Paycheck that is $100 ($40 smartphone + $60 2GB)
Re: Wish T-Mobile had better coverage Personally - I'd take throttled over paying more.
Re: Maybe Someone Can Help Me Out Here....
said by Steve B:the problem with this 'financing' is that it does not help to drive down the full retail price of handsets. anyone who looks at the pricing difference between an ipod touch and an iphone can see that phones are outrageously overpriced. this is 100% due to a culture of financing phones instead selling at full price up front.
Contact/Subsidy - You pay less up front and pay it off month to month over the term of the contract and beyond.
Non-subsidy - You "CAN" pay less up front and still pay it off month to month.
Randal is going on about how they can't supposedly afford to subsidize any longer. Yet, these new plans carriers are starting to move to still give the customer the option of paying less up front and paying on the rest month to month. Isn't that still subsidizing? I know prices of plans "could" go down after the device is paid off but, the subsidizing still took place.
What am I missing??
| || Hopefully this weekend Ill be getting my phablet. Unsubsidized price for the HTC One Max is $600. Subsidized price is normally $250, theres a $100 off special, my Droid DNA will be an almost $100 trade, and a $50 invoice credit will be like getting one of the best phones on the planet right now for free. I guess $600 is a lot considering my 10 tablet was $100 less. But in comparison, the much lesser iPhone 5S is $650 unsubsidized. With its dinky screen, lower resolution display, slower processor, smaller battery, half the amount of RAM, poorer front facing camera, lack of IR, lack of NFC and only 16 GB of storage versus the HTC One Maxs standard 32GB on board plus micro SD. I would feel raped buying such an inferior, outdated, POS phone at full retail price.|

AT&T out of touch. Just like most companies. AT&T is out of touch from reality and probably deserve karma where it hits them. They will go down! Down! Get too greedy and nobody has money for your services!
