T-Mobile kills device subsidies

T-Mobile USA CEO John Legere will switch completely to Value plans next year, removing device subsidies and shaking up the way Tier 1 carriers finance smartphones. Legere did not provide the complete details of the change but said that customs will pay an up-front cost for devices and then will be able to pay off the rest of the device cost in affordable monthly installments.
