Replying to: T-Mobile is losing money by T Bone
Yes, they are losing money, and the "Value Plans" are a last ditch attempt at stopping some of the bleeding. Look into it. They will allow customers a discounted rate on service if they buy the phone outright or have thier own device. Why? Because they are making profit right out the door on that customer instead of having to recoupe the cost of the handset. Do some research on the subject of subsidized handsets. Seriously, if us Americans would suck it up and spend the money to actually purchase a cell phone, and move us away from the contract model, every carrier would save millions of dollars that is typically lost from customers breaking contract and not returning equipment or paying the ETF. Phones cost money, providing service costs money, and there is not a company out there who would complain about contracts and subsidized handsets going away.
