Are your plans ~$120/month combined, on a 2 year contract? If so:

$120/month x 24 months = $2,880

Had you bought the S3s unsubsidized at $500 each and gotten a cheaper plan that would total ~$80/month, your cost over 24 months would be $2,920.

Not really that much of a great deal to get the phones free. In the end it really turns out to be the same crap. After getting my Nexus I've decided I'll be financing the cost of unsubsidized phones from now on, whether through my Amazon card, Newegg card, or credit card (0 interest of course, even if it means opening a new one).

here we go with the technicalities again, what i'm just saying is that i did not pay 199 upfront. i know the math.
i'm a filipino and we don't buy subsidized contract phones in the philippines, our lines are prepaid, just sayin.

I wasn't breaking it down into technicalities just to say "you're wrong," I was only responding to your own "beat that" invitation biggrin.gif There are just a lot of people that immediately bite the "$200 phone with 2 year contract!" deal, not knowing that they can save quite a few hundred bucks (over the total 2 year term of course) by buying the phone contract-free (especially a $300 Nexus phone) and picking whatever plan they want. I'm speaking US here of course... I, for example, will be getting a $40/month prepaid plan with T-Mobile as soon as my contract with those scumbags is up in a few months.

My point in saying that going 2 year contract with a cheap/free phone versus going no contract with a really expensive phone turns out about the same total price over 24 months, with the big difference being that with the contract-free option you can sell and upgrade your phone at a pretty low cost a year later by reselling yours. I SUPPORT buying unsubsidized over subsidized. thumb.gif Especially when it means my money goes to the manufacturer of the device and not the carriers.

i agree to that, the only reason why i got my s3 under contract is because someone is paying it for me biggrin.gif
there are lots of advantage by buying a contract free phone, first is it's already unlocked and it's not bloated, there is no disabled feature, tethering for example, and the savings over time of course.

i don't understand why americans got hooked into contract phones, i mean, america is a rich country compared to philippines, regular citizens in there can't even get a car, 90% of us uses public transportation, but when it comes to cellphones we cannot be beaten, lol
