wait a second?

So I buy a $200 phone (retails at lets say $600)
4 months later i get $300 50%
7 months later i get $240 40%
12 months later i get $180 30%

and it costs $50?

So I pay $50, then 4 months later I hate my phone and want a new $600 retail phone... then I get $300 back.. Take the $50 I paid for the plan so we are talking $250.

Now I have $250 credit but the new model is $600, because they are not going to give me contract price again... correct?

So if I want the new $600 retail phone I am looking about $350 out of pocket?

I think I will stick with warranty, insurance, and ebay as last resort

Just how much do you think you are going to get for a used phone on ebay 4-12 months after it launched. The only phones you are going to get a lot for is the major ones like the iPhone.

Sure go ahead and pay for the insurance that you still have to pay a deductible for. This isn't insurance so why are you even mentioning that for. This program is more for people that get tired of their device soon after they purchase it. If they get black tie then their phone is always going to be considered in good condition since it is unlimited repairs and no deductible by the way
