These carriers specialize in taking simple things and making them complex so they can screw their customers over. The headline $$$ off subsequently has so many catches, the average consumer has no idea what they are actually getting in to. Deceptive marketing at its best.

Unless you need a new line of service, this isn't really a deal.

And all of this only to get the savings in bill credits over 30 months! Man, it’s just not worth it.

I agree. The carriers are making money off the plans. And the longer they can keep you, the better for them. I bet the CAC (customer acquisition cost) is high for the carriers.

Lavender != Purple !

Too bad it doesn't look like the Purple BMW M3 of years ago, that was the proper definition of purple !

If AAPL had picked that version of purple, iPhone Unit Sales would be surging right now !
