PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If you're in the market for a smartphone, odds are you're looking at an Android phone. If you're looking at an Android phone, odds are you're looking at Samsung, and if you're exotic, you may be looking at a Nexus, HTC, LG, or maybe even Sony. Few of you will be considering Oppo. I, however, did.

You're not making sense here. First you're talking about 2-year contracts and now you suddenly jump to 1-year contracts.

oh you misunderstand. Let me explain the details:

2-year contracts cost about $1,000 ($40 * 24), and it allows you to get a phone for free up to $500 - if you choose cheaper phones it's your loss. What it requires is for you to pre-pay the same amount of phone bills as the cost of phone itself first. So you pay $500 which equals to about 12 months of phone bills, and then you don't have pay phone bills until the accumulated sum of them exceed $500 (=> about a year later).

The $500 / 12 = ~ $40 covers unlimited 3G and totally free calls as long as caller/callee use the same MNO (it's our dominating MNO). Basically it guarantees a fixed amount of phone bills every month, no matter how many calls you make or how much you use Internet.

It's what we have here in Taiwan. I always thought the policy is the same everywhere in the world.
