Sure, let's shift over to the global model and make you pay full price for your phone.


Let's see - 5 family members x 5 iPhone 5's at $649+tax. Looks like we're skipping Christmas every two years. lol.

$649 (iphone5) x 5(# lines) = 3245 (price of the phones)

$20(installment per line) * 21 (months)=$420 (equipment Installment Plan) x 5(lines) = $2100 total EIP

3245(total price of teh phone) - @2100 (EIP) = $ 1145 Downpayment

Plan $79.99 talk and txt (2 initial lines)
$30 for teh add a line 500 mins ( $10 each total of 3 lines)
$100 for unli data no caps ( 20 each lines)

plan total $209.99 before tax + $100 for the EIP for 21 months

well not BAD if you are going to have 5 lines and unli data(no limit for 4g) with IPHONE5.

Why should people expect to get the latest iphone every two years? If they want it why can't they just charge it? I see no reason for subsidy but then again I prefer prepaid over postpaid.

How do I join your family. Either you are super rich giving all your kids almost $700 phones, or you are a very poor planner. If you can not afford to shell out $3000.00 in phones over Christmas, then that means you don't have any savings. If you really want those phones for $200 bucks a piece, you have to realize that you will still be paying that money back to the company for the next two years in high priced plans. You will pay one way or the other, so you need to become a good planner.

Should a family posting that they won't have Christmas because of a few lousy phones even be thinking about Iphones in the first place?

My buddy bought a BMW for 45,000, then proceeded to refinance his house for 30 years and wrapped the BMW up...
