The carriers are loosing the battle to the very companies the sell blocks of air time to. (the prepaid companies) why should I be paying sprint 190 dollar a month when I can get the exact same service through boost for 100?

I don’t care if sprint gives me a 300 dollar phone for a penny and I have to pay boost 300 bucks for it. Anyone who can do simple math can figure out where the deal is.

I highly doubt this rule will be enforced.

Oh it'll be enforced, in fact, it's already in force.

When I repped for AT&T wireless a century ago .... OK ... LAST century ... 1982 or 3, I used to COAM hip customers' phones.


I say 'hip' because not many people knew they could get their old Bell sytem phone, already paid for, on line with AT&T.

I just inputted the ESN .. Electronic Serial Number and do a "grab" (Go outside and do a couple of things (I forget) and you now had AT&T service with your old phone

You can't COAM phones anymore and the same Motorola (F'rinstance) from a pay as you go will not be COAMed by Verizon (etc), nor will the pay as you go COAM a Verizon or AT&T or other pay as you go.

So if you make a mistake, your phone could be a $200 paperweight
