This is why if you're going Android, a Nexus device is the best option. I'm getting the new iPhone mostly because carriers in the US don't do tiered subsidies like in other countries. If they're going to force a minimum $20 data plan on me regardless of what smartphone I choose ($480 over the contract life), then I'm getting the device with the highest subsidy.
