That just ain't so....there is no 'cover cost of subsidy' line item anywhere on your bill.....eliminate the subsidy and monthly service costs remain the same, because the monthly service costs are based on the cost of providing the service NOT the cost of the phone that is being subsidized.
Remove the subsidy and nothing will change...except that many people will no longer be able to afford expensive phones.
