Default [Q] When will the M8 get a discount?

I know when I bought my m7 back in August or so, I only paid $115 with a new, 2 year contract. But, If I remember correctly, some time before that they were super cheap with a new 2 year contract?

Does anyone know about how many months after launch these things usually happen?

Some private phone resellers or retailers have their own instore offers and promotions. But when I went to the Verizon Store to get the HTC Dot View case they had a Buy one M8 get one M8 free offer for 2 year extensions and new contracts, if I'm not mistaken,,,

Yeah, I saw that and I'm wishing AT&T had that as well. But, I only need it for one line. I'd be paying for a line that would never be used lol

Anyone else perturbed that AT&T still doesn't have a carrier discount yet?

Eh, I'd rather not pay $24-$32 a month for the phone. I'd rather just pay the $200(or less I hope) and stay in my 2 year contract lol

Thanks, though!

Ah, see I still have "unlimited" data. I'd love to keep that and stuff.
