How much are phones where you live? Here, they're anywhere from $0-$300 with contract renewal.
When I renewed mine, I got a Captivate Galaxy S, which was out maybe a month, for free. Do you guys have Walmart?
....When you guys do it with contract renewal.. do you just pay for the phone at once or do they add like $30 to your bill each month?
We pay for the phone up front, but we get a pretty good discount if we sign up for a new 2 yr. contract. In my experience people don't sign new contracts unless they get the new phone, just let the service continue as long as they are happy with it & the pricing. So I'm guessing it must be different where you live?
RE: eBay prices. People like to buy used phones because then they don't have to sign new 1-2 yr. contracts. That way they can drop/change the service when they need to.
Right, and you told me when you renewed, you didn't get a new phone. Did you call to see if you could get one for a contract renewal price??
I haven't been able to get through yet. The price to call is 14 cents a minute and after waiting 15 minutes I decided that it was too expensive to call. I have to go to the city next Tuesday anyway - I will try and go then
I keep going back and forth though. 450€ is a lot of money... there's also the Galaxy 3 phone from Samsung... but that's just not as cool looking, lol
