The Phone You're Paying For But Not Getting

Carriers should be figuring in all the service costs for research, developement, building new technology and maintaining staff, leasing etc. That part of service billing is understandable. Subsidizing phones is a separate entity. It is included in the bill but should never surpass a paid down product.
You and I often agree on many things but, you being a phone geek amoungst other phone geeks here, I'm disappointed that you feel it is ok to keep paying for something that is yours free and clear. How would you feel if Sears kept charging your credit card for a dishwasher that was paid down months ago? Rich speaks the unbearable truth. This is why subsidizing is such a huge deal for carriers like Verizon(as an example). Mainstream consumers are being rooked and not even knowing it.
