True, I don't think it's a great deal because the postpaid plans already have subsidy repayment build into it. But since you'd be buying full retail anyways, the only difference is paying up front vs over time. If you actually pay off the device, it's a wash (other than losing unlimited). If you trade it in to upgrade early, then it's a rip off. It's also a ripoff if you use more than 6GB of data regularly, or if you're like Chief and have unlimited for 10 dollars.
