Re: AMP'd T-Mobile rumor...(no not a merger)
two year contracts are there in order for a carrier to have some sort of commitment from a person so that they can provide you with a 8 the cost of a phone for you, they want to make sure you are not going to buy a phone for nearly nothing and then go use it with another carrier, for many reasons, primarily they dont want to incur the cost of them buying a handset from a manufacturer and then you using it with a different carrier. ( this way the other carrier saves the money of having to pay for handsets and only has to worry about their network development or simply you being a more profitable customer) second, if they buy out your contract and subsidize your phone, they would never make money off from you, and last we checked verizon,tmobile, cingular and sprint are not non profit organizations. I f you have an issue with two year contracts, then you should asses you needs and realize what company is best for you, if you know you are not going to be in a certain place for long, or like to upgrade phones, then look for the company that is best for you. dont blame the carrier for you bad decision making. Second, you must realize that if it wasnt for the profit making ability of this companies and their ability to constantly improve networks with the assurance that they are actually going to have a client that is going to use and pay for their network, we wouldnt be having this discussion now. What you need to do is look for what best fits your needs, study on what is available and make an educated decision.
