If cost is such a concern then all wireless carriers should do is drop subsidized Cellphones. If the subsidy on cellphones was dropped it would one drop a huge cost off of the carriers back and two lead to more competition amonst manufactures. True less people will get wireless service but that will be offset by the incredible loss the carriers recieve for the first 6 months of a 2 year contract.

The subsidy is the biggest cost a carrier is hit with. The reason for this is the manufactures make incredible amount of money selling their devices to the carrier who then sell the devices at a loss.

Think about it. it costs apple about 120 bucks to make a 700 dollar iphone which they sell to the carrier at almost market value. If the iPhone and many smartphones were not given subsidy then there prices would probably be more around the price of an iPod touch.
