Which Carrier Will Survive The Death Of Phone Subsidies?
Posted: 25-May-2013 [Source: Seeking Alpha]

[Which carriers are best positioned for the death of phone subsidies? Kevin Greenhalgh weighs in with his opinion.]

Kevin Greenhalgh -- "The American cell phone industry functions differently from that of the rest of the world. The system in the rest of the world is very simple, you buy a phone at retail price and bring it to whatever carrier you want to use. In the United States most consumers buy a phone from a carrier with a significant subsidy...

"I believe a move to a no subsidy and no contract structure is inevitable. Consumers will demand greater freedom to use their devices how they please. They will also realize the cost difference and be driven towards the cheaper prepaid plans as they look at their $100+ monthly bills.

"So which carrier is best positioned for this inevitable change in the U.S. market?
