Default plan options for S5 dev edition?

I am new the dev edition phones, but it sounds like this might be the best route to get an unlocked phone. But let me see if I understand how it all works...

So, the dev edition phones are sold at full price from the manufacturer, I assume the S5 will be the same.

Is there anyway to get a verizon plan for that phone that isn't a subsidized plan? Meaning, typically when you bug a phone, you get it at a huge up front discount because it is subsidized by your plan.

One option that came to mind was to use the Edge plan and buy the cheapest phone they offer. I *think* that reduces your monthly by some amount.
