Wow, is the cellular phone business cut throat ! It's time for new phones & new contracts on my cell phones. My current carrier (Cingular) won't give me the new phones I want for free (Razors) if I renew my contract but every other carrier out there will if I jump ship & sign with them (I always thought it was easier to keep current customers happy than to get new ones, go figure).
Anyways, Wirefly has a deal going today where I can get the Razors free if I renew my cingular contract for 2 years. All's good with that except that the Cingular representative told me that the way Wirefly & other internet sellers of these phones can make money giving away expensive phones is that when you order from them using your credit card that's a contract whereby if you default in any way with the phone carrier (Cingular in this case) late payments, etc., you are liable for the full retail value of the phone. Anybody ever experience this ? Anybody do business with Wirefly ?
