We all know Apple charges each of the major cell phone carriers in the USA close to $600 for each iPhone 4S 16GB. In return the cell phone carriers subsidized the iPhone by approximately $400 to lock consumers into a 2 year contract. Yeah I know the MSRP retail price for iPhone is $650 but we're pretty sure Apple gives companies somewhere about a 5% discount in bulk. Sprint's CEO has already gone on record saying Sprint's subsidy of the iPhone is already 40% higher than any of their other phones (including the S2). That means Samsung really is only charging Sprint around $400 for their high end phones. So I believe it will take both major carriers to collude together and try to raise subsidized iPhone pricing by $50-100. What do you think? It will take the 2 major carriers in the USA to tango together. I really think they want Sprint out of the equation all together and divide up the customers themselves. Verizon's been trying to up the pricing of their high end LTE phones by $100 (ie Droid Razr, Galaxy Nexus etc $299 on contract at Corp Verizon stores and online Verizon.com). Yeah I know you can get those phones cheaper on Amazon Wireless etc. But those are Android Phones with much more flexible pricing strategies than the iPhone.
