    Hey, I heard that Verizon doesn't pay their reps commissions when they sell a phone without a contract.

    ie, guy @ the Verizon store sells an iPhone with a contract, he gets a commission. If he sells it without a contract (ie at a higher price), he doesn't get a commission.

    Does anyone know if that is true?

    Thanks,

    Don't know but would make sense. A contract is gonna make the company a helluva lot more money than an off-contract phone.....

    As long as they are a customer for 2 years (and many people stay for a lot longer than that) don't they make the same either way?

    There's no guarantee that if you were to buy your phone at retail price, off-contract that you would stick around for Verizon service (this is especially true of the iPhone, as Verizon iPhones are the same models as TMO and AT&T's+CDMA.) So if they sell you the phone and you bolt to TMO, they just earned a small profit on the phone, versus two years of milking.

    This is why even TMO--the so called Uncarrier--makes you pick a plan and pay one month of service when you're buying a phone, even if you're paying for the phone in full. It's still not the best case scenario for them--customer buying phone in full and paying for just one month of service--but not a lot of people can afford to do this.
