Combining phones with service really was one of the dumbest ideas this industry ever came up with, except of course "discounting" phones to lure people into signing a contract.

Unfortunately, if carriers stopped selling phones, you'd see a lot fewer people willing to shell out $500 for a smart phone, which means carriers would lose out on that sweet, sweet data revenue. And since two major carriers are making their business about charging people more for less with data, that isn't going to happen.
