T-Mobile Considering Elimination of Service Contracts?
What will this mean for smartphone prices, which are often subsidized when a customer agrees to a two-year service agreement? According to TMoNews, the wireless carrier will introduce a new equipment installment plan tier in the $25-$30 range, in addition to a $99 (or less) down payment.

"Like all good rumors in the tech world, these details are subject to change but we’re pretty comfortable calling this next bit of info as something you should expect to see later this year," TMoNews says.
