When talking about postpaid in North America (other than a few exceptions) you pay the same price monthly whether you took a phone on contract or not. It's actually dumb to NOT buy a phone when you get an upgrade ever since they implemented prorated ETFs.
I can get a new phone every 2 years for $400 off and pay X amount of money per month, or I can buy the phone for full price and still pay X amount of money per month. I upgrade my phone at least once a year, but I ALWAYS buy a phone right when I'm up for contract renewal. Even if there is no phone I want from their selection, I will choose the one with the highest resale profit and sell it.
Well it's the same everywhere.
Though in corporate or "group" contracts, you pay what you consume and since most calls within the same group are free (eg could be a company, group of friends, etc.) You end up paying barely tax.
I pay $5 unlimited free calling to 3 numbers, $5 for 1gb of internet (up AND down
) Thats around $12 a month including tax... I understand though, that this is different everywhere else.
