I did once... I had some issues with the phone company replacing my damaged phone and using it as my upgrade. Also, I was very pressed. It wasn't worth it IMO.

I don't think it's worth it either. It's just a phone. Anything with a retail price attached to a lower price I can obtain it for, is only worth that lower price to me. I'd buy it on eBay before I ever spent full price. 400 for a PHONE? Please....I wish I would.

If u have an early upgrade available for exception pricing, I would do that. Craigslist, eBay, are good. I would only pay full retail if I didn't want a contract and I was balling.

That's how I usually do it. Especially when I want a phone I can tinker with and rom.

Some ppl like shoes or purses others like mobile tech *shrug

I'm getting the galaxy note 2 off contract in a couple weeks.
I just sell my others on eBay.

I used to do that all the time when I was younger. I probably would again if it was something I really wanted.

I like to keep my old phones and make use of them in other ways. I use my old samsung as a mp3/wi fi music player and a remote control lol.

I paid for my iPhone in full price . It's harder for Canadians because we don't have good phone companies without contracts ..almost everything is contract based and why would I get into a contract for 3 years stuck and pay more that the retail value of the phone? Now the phone is mine and I'm with cheaper company that I pay for month to month.
