I agree... everything would be made so much easier on all users.

ya, motorolla had a special contract with cingular to only offer it to them for the first year of the Razr. Then after that, it is open to other companies and so I know that the service I use, verizon, will be offering it at the start of the new year.

I have no problem with a unit that would do everything I would ever need it to do. I'm waiting for the day where a cell phone will take quality pics 5.0mp or higher, high res video, play mp3's and whatever else, next gen video games, a storage capacity of 20gb, and have a battery life of one week before recharge. Hell a mini computer that acts as a cell phone would suffice. :) Less chit to carry around.

We just had a Motorola rep. come to speak with us recently. Well i dont give two shits about what is currently out b/c ive owned all of motorolas phones that have come out in the last year :chuckles:

But me and him started talking about Moto's big investments in the upcoming year or so. Joe, your gonna be quite happy when they start releasing their new stuff in mid to late 06. They have some really cool ideas/concepts coming out!

i was talking about this concept with my mom and she made a good point...getting a phone IS much cheaper if u get it with a service company. Like the phone Lee (my bf) is getting me is about 350 and with a 2 yr plan and 100$ discount from buying online he is getting it for me for 200. u save a lot of buying it with a company...but do u make it up with the monthly billing the phone comes with>

I'm not sure I'm reading this right. My friend owns a cell phone shop. He said that the reason he can sell phones for cheaper, is because of the commission he makes from the service provider for setting you up on their network.

It's true. The last two phones I had, I sold on ebay after 1 year of use and got back all the money I put down for it when I got the contract. As a matter of fact, I just sold my girlfriends LG VX600 for $100 on ebay, and that thing was beat to hell. I started the auction 12am last night and it was won at 6am with BIN. :faint:

Correct. Here is an example...

I (working directly for the company) make approx. $50 on a base line $39.99 plan for two years.

Lets say we will use a base Nokia/Motorola phone for $65 on a two year, new activation.

My friend that owns his own cell phone shop (technically called an "Indirect" store). He offers my company, Cingular and Nextel.

My company sells him the Nokia/Motorola phone for approx. $85-$100.

Now when he signs someone up on this base plan (promo at the time) of $39.99 for two years, my company pays him... $210.

He has the choice of offering the $85-$100 phone for whatever he feels need be. $65 to match what we sell it for... or maybe $85... take no loss and throw in a free car charger.

If you would like to know... car chargers, leather cases and holsters go for approx. .25 - $3.00 a piece, when purchased in bulk. Although most people are too dumb to realize this.

So in turn, he sells the phone at $85, takes no loss on that. Gives them a free car charger "valued at" $19.99. Takes a loss of maybe $2.00 on that. And makes $210 from our company.

Works out pretty well for him. Or if he is feeling nice... take a $30 hit for the phone and sell it for $55. In turn he still makes approx $180.

This $210 plan is the promo at the current time... we pay more for it. Keep in mind my company does pay quite a bit more than Cingular and Nextel to their Indirect stores.
