Re: The solution to your problem is simple.
Find the carrier that's offering a waived activation fee and switch every 2 years. If everyone churned every 2 years it would send a message to the carriers. Remember the days prior to consolidation of the industry? Sprint (as an example, not to pick on Sprint) would throw something customer unfriendly out there, no one would follow suit, and the change would go away. Swap fees circa 2003 anyone? Unfortunately with the duopoly that's emerging that's not going to happen.
Better yet, if it suits your needs try prepaid. You can get advanced phones on advanced networks for a lower MRC. The downside is the equipment usually costs more and there may be some coverage limitations depending on carrier.
