Re: The real benefit is
The cellular carriers ultimately have begun to screw themselves by masking the price of the phone by bloating the cost of features. Customers now feel entitled to "free" phones whether they are due for an upgrade or dropped their existing one in a pool. You see the same kind of thing in the medical insurance industry where employers took over the responsibility of managing a person's insurance and insurance coverage went beyond insurance and now covers routine maintenance costs. Now people have been conditioned to act like children and believe that they are in no way responsible for their own medical care. The same thing is happening with cellular service in miniature.
Personally I think it's time for people to get their act together and be a grown up and buy their phone outright when they get service.
