That'll win over customers!

See HTC, here's how it works…

People shell out a lot of money for a smartphone + contract. It's like, $200.00 + $1k a year, for two years. So they expect that there's some arrangement that they won't be totally left in the dark after the 30 days or so they can no longer return the phone.
