    I'm usually able to negotiate with my carrier to get one at the subsidized price.

    I would if I could afford to. Full retail price is usually more than I can afford.

    only phone i've paid full price for was the nexus one with at&t 3G. if they would have had a subsidized version, i could have kept my flawless record of not paying full price at 0.

    I've done it a couple of times and now that VZ will stop offering one year contracts, full retail is all i am going to have to pay for my parents' phone and mine.

    Never have before, dont plan on doing it in the future. Too damn expensive for something that is obsolete in a matter of months.

    lol i should clarify that im on a corporate plan with Rogers in Canada which has a faster HUP cycle (12 months vs 24 months on my carrier). but even still, when i was on a regular voice/data plan, i could call in, ask for their retentions department and get some type of credit or early upgrade.

    Eligible for upgrade in September - I think I can hold out for just a few months.

    I buy every other phone full retail or so, but usually I am paying with rewards points

    If i were you, i'd hold off until your contract expires, if it's around mid-2012, you'll be able to grab a QNX BlackBerry then. I myself have had a Sprint premier upgrade since june 2010 and my contract expires this June 06 with Sprint, so i'm pretty fortunate to be able to upgrade my Curve 8330 to a Bold Touch 9930, which will hold me very well until i'm availible for an upgrade in June 2013, when I'm sure BlackBerry will have a fantastic Bold Touch 4G w/QNX OS for Sprint.

    I refuse to pay full price on a phone. I already pay 40/month!

    I will pay any amount of money for the BB I want. I need the BB like a crack-head needs a rock.

    I've never paid full price for a phone but since I'm 1 yr into a 3 year contract I just might when the bold touch comes out if I can't convince Bell to cut me a deal. You'd think working for them would help but it doesn't. For hardware anyways. I do get a discounted bill. Nothing on hardware though.

    I want this new Bold.

    I can't afford it unfortunately. (Kids, many of them, lol!)

    It is honestly the best way though, granted these phones lose resell value fast!

    Most of the times if unhappy, you can get most of your money back off CL or ebay though.

    Unfortunately in India there are no carrier subsidized BB's. So I HAVE to buy at full price all the time.
    I have to keep $1000 aside for tech spends every year. And this years quota is over between the the Torch in September and the Playbook 64 gb this month.
    Will use the Torch till QNX is launched though. Reduce average yearly spend.

    I think my next device will have to be that Telus parakeet and his green button.

    I paid full price for my 8310. I upgrade about yearly. So sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I would and will, though.
