I'll use VZW as an example here.

VZW Prepaid does not allow:

-Access to 4G network
-Domestic roaming (free roaming is a misnomer, you pay for it. you just don't pay extra when you use it)
-The ability to share multiple lines. In fact 3 4G smartphones on a 6GB Share Everything plan is cheaper than 3 3G prepaid smartphones with 2GB each.

There's a lot to suggest that the markup in price plans has more to do than just the phone subsidy and it's easier to be cheaper on monthly service than prepaid service with multiple lines.
