Re: Of course you do
The reason the subsidy system exists is because carriers at one time had difficulty convincing people to sign up for rate plans, which used to be a lot more expensive than they are now, so they had to offer the incentive of a 'free' phone to get people to pay for the expensive rate plans.
Rate plans are a lot cheaper now, but the subsidy remains because customers by and large like it that way.
But the rate plans would cost the same they do now even if there was no subsidy.
