    I think it is, but the problem is that I don't see our wireless services prices going down.

    How do you see this all playing out in the future?

    I don't see contracts ending anytime soon. I think that we may see more phone financing options, but Verizon and AT&T won't be dropping the contracts or credit checks anytime soon. Maybe in 2-3 years, and only if regulatory changes require them to make the change. If you don't want the contract or credit check, T-Mobile and their crappy service is available for you.

    They are rolling out Band 4 LTE even as we speak, but yeah, where I live it is not an option.

    I hope we do get some regulatory changes especially once we get VoLTE. If they are not going to subsidize our phones and move to GSM-based VoLTE, I don't see any justification for SIM locking phones but we will need governmental action to get them to stop doing it.

    If you do the $20/month financing with tmobile they still do a credit check. If you pay the full price of the phone upfront, then they don't.
