I have a friend who just signed a 2 year contract with Sprint. When I asked her why, she said: "Well, they gave me a phone for free and I'm locking in a monthly rate." When I pointed out that A) that "free" phone was easily paid for by the $40 mo savings using Boost instead of Sprint, and B) Sprint can raise her rates and/or change the terms anytime they want (i.e. new data caps, new text caps, etc) all the sudden she wasn't too happy about signing the contract......
Yep, a friend of mine got a phone on a 36 a month contract which she was then told would be changed to just over 40 a month soon after she took it out. I think she's on either Orange or Vodafone but I'm not sure. All networks reserve the right to do this though.
Consider questioning authority, please.
