Say goodbye to discounted phones...
At the max, Sprint and other carriers will start showing consumers how much phones really cost. Charge people full prices and there will be no more ETF's to worry about. But then, I think people will keep phones a lot longer than they used to. At the minimum, they will give folks the option of having a discounted phone or a subsidized one with a pro-rated 2-year contract.
