I do have a question though?

These are bogo for $50
If so and you have NE2 you could get 4 of them for $50?

When they first came out weren't they $200 a pop... maybe $150 after rebate?

Just thinking out loud but if you were going to pay 600-800 out of pocket before.. I know $40 times 24 months in data is $960 bucks so it does add up over two years but if you take out $500+ you saved on devices it something I guess.

The whole purpose was to make these nicer high end devices more available to everybody. Think about would get over $1600 worth of equipment for $50...pretty good deal and even if you take the data off of the total dollar you are talking $700 discount. If they didn't make the new requirements the phone would be selling for $150+ still.

I know non of that fixes your problem but hopefully it will at a minimum show you their train of thought. I would have preferred them to create a seperate device discount for those who purchase the data... Way back in the day they used to offer pricing like that on PDA's. One price for a 2 yr, and another for a two year with data, it wasn't perfect and people loved to complain about paying the higher price if they didn't want data and so many people abused the system by buying Palms and whatnot with data just to have it removed a month later.. I guess they just figured this was simpler for the average joe to understand
