I don't mind signing new every 2 for Verizon. I have 3 lines under my account and don't plan on switching carrier. Anyways why by outright paying full price if you know you'll be sticking with the same carrier. I can't stand switching anyways.
If I'm close to upgrade ill use it. If I don't than ill usaully trade my phone to buddy who's a multi carrier dealer. He can get just about any phone out. I've seen cool a** phones that they use in China. That we'll never see over here. Wonder why that is?

Up until recently I signed a new contract every 2 years and got a new phone. That was until July when I wanted a Sprint Curve.
I was only 1 year into my contract with Sprint and had a Samsung M610. I went on Ebay and found a new in box Sprint Curve. Did a ESN swap on Sprint's site and so far my contract end date remains the same so I'm happy!
I think from now on I'll be buying phones either on Ebay or outright so I can choose when I want to upgrade, not the provider.
Uprade policies and procedures are still terrible if you ask me. I know people say providers offer low prices on 2 year contracts so they get their money back and that's why outright prices are so high. But it's still not comforting to the consumer.
I hate signing contracts and being locked in, I'm for changing the way it all works. Contracts should be no longer than 1 year, IMO.
