As stated, T-Mobile offers a $200 instant discount, so the answer to your question is yes, someone will do it.

You are contractually obligated if you want the discounted price.

If you pay it off you don't pay it off at the discounted price, you pay it off at the full price minus what you've already paid. It's basically the old 2 year upgrades of old.

Then switch to t-mobile

I will never understand people like you.

T-Mobile, AT&T, and U.S. cellular are all offering $200 instantly, Sprint is $300 of instantly, none of this trickle down discount trickery.

Verizon is the only major carrier that is binding you to them for two years under the disguise of a discount, and yet you seem to be upset with me instead of them.

Show a link where ATT is offering $200 off the top.  Att notoriously doesn’t do Black Friday.  They do BOGO deals, with bill credits.  The only deals are outside deals.

Best Buy has/had an offer off ATT phones, So has Samsung. 

And “why wouldnt I use Sprint or T-mobile?”  Because they have no coverage where I live.

Verizon is free to run their sales as they see fit.

Go to Samsung and buy the phone from them and pop your SIM card in it.

Then go to T-Mobile.

Most people don't like switching carriers frequently taking dings in their credit score.

We always want you to have more than one option when purchasing a device, pool_shark. You do have the option of purchasing a device at full retail if you choose. All promotions are set up for device payments specifically. I can understand your concerns regarding the promotions. Since we are a phone service provider and not a phone manufacturer, all promotions will be geared towards monthly installments rather than one lump sum credit. We hope this information helps.
