Monthly service plans would not be any cheaper without the subsidy...and you're oversimplifying how it is done in Europe...most people don't buy handsets outright, they sign up for a 'tariff' which basically means that a certain amount is added to their bill every month until they pay off the cost of the phone, phones are in fact paid off in installments, with very few people just paying the full cost outright at the fact it is very similar to the American system...
