no contract price is way above retail price usually 50-100% more infact. The point was the no contract price of the bb curve 8330 is 619.99 for verizon. It costs my retailer 322 for the phone. Verizon's store with the bogo loses about 200 on the contract handset price. But that is easily made up in 4-6 months. So after 6 months verizon makes up the cost of the handset. Term fee is useless

droid is 179.99 I believe after rebate. So nearly 300 dollars and obly 2 in 5 get their rebate back. So nearly 300 dollars for a handset that costs retail about 460. So they are out 160-260 depending if rebate is sent in. So on a droid can take as little as 3 months as much as 8 months for the profits to make back the handset cost. That's based on profits used towards the phone not total bill
