  Email Address: ihateiphonepm@gmail.com That poor carriers love Android is not really a surprise. Go to any carrier, anywhere in the world, and you’ll notice that most of their smartphones are now based on Android. They even have their best promotions and marketing campaigns around Android smartphones. Android phones are a great way for carriers to also hook customers that have never used a smartphone before and never needed data, on their data plans, and get them to sign more expensive contracts. The conclusion: carriers make more money with Android. But is the same true about the iPhone? Do carriers love the iPhone, too, and are they making money from it? Apparently not, and this is why it’s a nightmare for them. The iPhone can bring them some extra customers, but at what costs? Some carriers are even forced to subsidize the most of iPhone’s price, as we’ve seen with the Sprint deal, where they’re paying $650 to Apple for every iPhone. That would be $450 subsidized by the carrier. Considering other manufacturers charge the carriers from $400 to $500 for the benefit of their high-end phones, that means the carriers are giving Apple an added $150-$250 instead of every single phone. That also means that after every 1 million supernumerary customers, it costs them an extra $200 million. That’s a lot of money, and it positively puts a dent in the bearer’s profitability. This also explains why Apple is gifted to forge so much profit compared to each else in the industry with [url=http://www.graphics4design.com/stock-icons/windows-phone-7-icons.htm]icons windows phone[/url]. Apple can order diverse times the profit on their phones compared to other manufacturers because the carriers are hushed passive to be advantageous Apple a lot of money. If only they would appreciate that Apple is at a point where losing a big transmitter would not be tolerable to them anymore, which means the carriers could have the power to look after Apple down a cut in their negotiations. I don’t believe anyone should sit with to in search the “mean” carriers. They can astonish protect of themselves. But these negotiations that are heavily favoring Apple are also hurting all the other manufacturers. If the other manufacturers would be competent to care the carriers more because Apple is doing it, then it would be peachy, but I consider the opposite is happening. The carriers are giving in to Apple, and then adjudicate to recover their losses on squeezing all the profit from all the other manufacturers, which is grim for all of us, because our favorite manufacturers become less ready money to run with on approaching devices.
