Would be nice if there were sale prices for unlocked, full price devices. They never seem to be on sale.

Or just pay for the phone up front, unlocked, and shop around for the best service for your needs. Sell the phone a year down the road, rinse, repeat.

I pay $15/month with Mint (same infrastructure as T-mobile).

There's no discount if you're paying $50/month for a line.
Same here. Are there ever any iPhone deals that don’t require activation of a line? I just want to buy an unlocked phone.

This sounds like an advertisement to me, not like an article. 700$ off when trading in a phone is not 700$ off. Why make it sound as if it were?
