Phone Price INCREASE after release?!?!

by spirit22    Jan 10, 2012, 6:24 AM

For those a little familiar with how the cell phone market works (though I thought I was pretty informed up until this weekend), is it likely for the retail price of a phone to go up several months after it has been release?

I tried to take advantage of TMobile New Year's sale this past weekend to finally get my hands on the Samsung Galaxy S II but the requirement to migrate to one of their value plans stopped me. That said, TMobile store rep who talked to me stated that the price of the phone was going to go up? Shocked and this seemed odd to me since the release date was last October. Note sure if she was just trying to make the sale Rolling Eyes (I appreciate that things are not great post failed merger w/ AT&T) or if what she stated was plausible. Thoughts/Insights anyone?

Also, anyone know specifics about upgrade to ICS for the G S II?
