Not as long as marketing exists.
There will always be people who will prefer to pay less up front, even if it means paying more over two years. Therefore the subsidy model will never go away unless it's outlawed (which I don't see happening any time soon.)
I don't even know if I'd call it a 'preference' as much as a 'necessity' in this case--in this economic climate, how many people can fork over $600-something for an iPhone?
