    Finally, someone that realized your per line cost is $40 (double) vs buying on payments and paying $20 per line per month.

    There is nothing for free folks. These carries are getting their money out of your blood with contract our without. No doubt about that.
    I would argue that it is a respectable deal. $300 + (24*$20) = $780, which is less than the $850 or so.

    I'm lucky, I'm on a corporate plan, so I keep my unlimited data without playing games, and they have even turned on my ability to hotspot, so no more need for FoxFi.

    And I love this phone . . .

    Yep. To give perspective:

    2 Year Contract: $40 line charge * 24 months = $960 + $350 upfront + $40 upgrade fee (unless waived) = $1350

    Device Payment: $20 line charge * 24 mo = $480; $36 in payments/mo x *24 = $864 + $63.75ish in tax upfront + $20 upgrade fee = $1427.75

    A cost difference of about $78 over a 2 yr period. So, the 2yr contract is slightly cheaper. That said, a lot of folks will opt for the payment plan due to a) being able to "upgrade"/trade-up after 50% (with some devices) and b) paying a lot less upfront vs 2yr.

    I bought mine through Verizonwireless . Com for $299.98 2 year contract... I've got an old unlimited data plan so maybe that's why i had the 2 year subsidized price option
    I hope the don't take away the unlimited data plan by upgrading
