Ok, let's be clear about one thing. You do, in fact, own the phone. The benefit to an outright purchase verus a 2 year contract with a reduced price is the early termination fee. The loss the company takes on the two year agreement price is, to a point, integrated into the monthly bill, which is why the early termination fee exists to offset the price reduction. As far as Verizon limiting access on unlocked phones, they do own the network and can choose how to limit access. Is it right or fair? Can't be sure without actual evidence. VZW needs to document, with hard facts, the potential damage to their network.
