Why should they give cash back for a contract? The intent of contracts is to have a guaranteed revenue stream for the length of the contract. People usually don't want contracts because they want to switch carriers without additional costs, do not like the phone choices or want to save money on required features. Since you got the features anyway, it was foolish to spend extra money for a phone similar to the one offered by the carrier at a discount. Since current money is usually worth more than future money, it is preferable to pay with cheaper dollars in the future if the total cost is the same.

Where are the environmental groups on this one? With lots of old cell phones junking up our landfills, I'd think they'd be all over a plan like this.
None of the features you mention are worth spending extra money to get. Phones are primarily for making voice calls. Use a data card for connecting a computer to the Internet. You are limiting a phone's primary function by tethering it to a computer.
That has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen you, or anyone else, post here on this forum. Yeah, I'm limiting a phone's primary function by making sure that it can do stuff beyond its primary function.
My phone works just fine as a voice device, thank you. And, it even works as a voice device WHILE it's tethered to my computer, so in no way is any of its function being limited by tethering it. In fact, it's capable of surfing the net (on the phone browser), tethering to a computer, AND making a voice call at the same time. LOL.
He is an iphone user ... they are not used to quality devices
and the right arguement is that people want "PDA" phones at a "normal" price and don't want the data. that's the problem there... it's more like "i want ferrari @ hyandai price but i also don't want to pay for the premium gas".
Ah, what we have here is a LogicBox with endless scrolling and no real answer, but a good show!
