Let's say that I purchased an iPhone valued at $600 via Sprint at a contract rate of $200 on January 1, 2012. With the purchase, let's say I have a 450 minute calling plan and a mandatory $30 data plan because the iPhone is a smartphone. Now, 18 months later (June 1, 2013), I decide I want to upgrade to a newer iPhone. According to you, I could pay a $100 upgrade fee and sign a new 2 year contract as well as buy the newer phone at contract rate - say $200. This practice cost Sprint money, right? The mandatory data fee itself is $540 over the 18 month period and when you add the $100 upgrade fee, Sprint is $40 ahead and that does not include the $50+ monthly fee for the voice plan over that same 18 month period. On top of that, I'm now contracted to Sprint for another 2 years. I'm sorry but, Sprint is not losing money by my estimation. They may, however, be receiving less profits than projected.
