I love that Verizon was forced to stop their $299 bull$hit. As bad as AT&T is, even they weren't pulling such crap. I mean really.

Verizon has been known to charge $299 for it's high end 4G LTE devices while AT&T has only charged $199 for their 4G LTE devices. So you would think that Verizon would charge $299 for the Galaxy S III since it's brand new, high-end, LTE, etc. They did so with the Galaxy Nexus but as soon as they saw Sprint was only charging $199 for their Nexus, Verizon magically lowered their price to $199 as well. That's why you need competition in the indsutry.

The question still goes unanswered... Who forced VZW to lower the price. If I am not mistaking Samsung stated that the phone will be sold for $199 & $249 not VZW. Just the same as the iPhone prices are priced by Apple and is pretty much uniform accross the board. I understand that the Samsung Gallaxy III is a "high end model" but what really states whats "high" end? Could it be they used material that would have lowered the production cost? But overall you stated that VZW was forced to lower their prices, who forced it?

Market competition has forced Verizon to lower their pricing.

The main reason is the fact that no one would buy a phone at a rebate price for more then 299. VZW has just been making money off of LTE devices bc they were the first to offer it and no one else had it yet. Y not make money if u r the only one who offers LTE with majority of the US population. That is the reason y I believe this was done. (Please don't try to talk trash about grammar because I don't care. U got common sense.)
