    Hardware does cost you something :)

    Its free AFTER REBATES. And then there is a monthly fee for services plus early termination fees are applicable.

    Fine print is a bizatch but reading it can save one lots of money :)

    Somewhere in the fine print you will find where they say you have to sign up for VOIP for some minimum period.

    They are offering free G w/VOIP around here. No trade in required. But you have to sign up for VOIP.

    Similar deal to the free cell phone that is costing you $600 a year. The Madison Avenue ad exec. driving his porche around town loves you for it.
