It's not like they change the product after you buy it. A branded phone is almost never excatly the same as the stock version.

You have ample opportunity to try out the phone, both in store and even a minimum 3 day non-commit trial with pretty much every carrier.

Phone's aren't the only product to suffer this business model. Ever buy a PC from a retail box store (and many online outlets as well)?
