I agree with you to an extent, but:

1.They (AT&T) really don't start making money off an activation for almost two years. Perhaps the price is at the perfect medium for the company factoring in everything and this offets this problem?

2.How would they explain this to EVERY customer that asks why their friend pays $20 less per month? How will they post prices in pamphlets so that the simple easily understand? It's clear that if T-Mobile is finally doing this, pretty much nobody, not even the savvy tech bloggers here, understand it at all. Most people just want a free phone and don't understand the subsidy at all...

I'm not entirely "defending the system", I'm just asking questions.
