Can someone please tell me how this makes any sense?? why would you buy a phone for $700 bucks?? you can just buy the phone with a contract and cancel when you get ready and pay the ETF. Their ETFs are variable (they go down every month you have service) so it would be cheaper to just cancel.

Some people don't want a contract that badly. You can buy it and cancel with the ETF but keep in mind you still pay $36 activation fee, the cost of the phone, and the monthly service charges for the time you have it. It would still be less expensive then what they are offering here but it's still pretty expensive considering their lowest plan is $39.99 plus $30 data and of course being billed in advance the first bill is always higher. Other high-end phones are also in this ballpark for price without contrats too. Although this is a little higher other phones aren't too far off of this.

what good is the phone if your not going to avtivate it? anyone that pays full retail is retarded even if u got the phone at contract price and paid the etf thats only 400 or even less depending on how long you have it because the etf drops every month. so why pay 600 or 700 makes zero sense
