I agree with you on the fact that the wireless industry in the United States shot themselves in the foot when they are started offering $1 or Penny phones in exchange for a contract. (damn Radio Shack!) I would love it if we could sell phones at our cost (or even a small markup) and then get a cut for signing people up.

But lets be realistic: How many people would be on here complaining about spending $500+ on these high end devices because of no discounting. More people would simply go without or wouldn't want to upgrade their handsets due to the high cost. The customer experience and satisfaction wouldn't be as high.

All in all, the way it works now benefits the wireless phone manufacturers by being able to sell high end phones to the average consumer at reasonable rates by letting Retailers like us take the hit on the Product loss. This was originally what my post was about. Sure Verizon makes money whether they cancel or not. But the retailers take the hit!
