I should have been clearer, I was referring to iPhones. A couple of them said that they offered them the 4S. Yes, iPhones cost more than the other phones for the carriers.

How about reading/replying to my whole statement next time. If you go back and read I said they where pushing the Samsung phones because they probably have a huge amount if inventory. I also said that the iPhone 5 was the biggest seller in the last quarter(by a huge percentage BTW) so why would they offer it. It's all about getting the right rep on th phone. You can get the newest iphone on an early upgrade. It's been noted on this forum before. If you're going to get your feelings hurt every time someone mentions those cheap crap phones that you pay $300 for an an hardly get that back on Craigslist 4 months later. Thm maybe you should stay out of the iPhone section.

The droid DNA costs more of a subsidy than the iphone 5 at 719.

Why don't the carriers just raise the upfront cost of iphones to something profitable?

History shows people are already willing to pay more for a product that does less just because of the Apple logo
