Your funny if you think that Samsung loses money.

They have a secondary bootloader for a reason, and that is to save the phone when people think they "bricked" it.

Samsung makes more money selling phones then HTC, Motorola, and LG combined, I really doubt they lose money.

Have to agree with Logcat14. Dxtra do you even know how much it cost companies to make a smart phone? it only cost them about $30 per cell phone. Plus as Logcat14 said it helps companies.

Actually, it costs Samsung (because of the amazing internals) about $300-350 to make the phone, and they jack the price up twice.

But when you buy it on contract, your not paying Samsung $2000 for your phone (data plan), your paying your carrier.

Essentially, your being bent over either way, just less with buying off contract.

No one really loses any money (other then maybe shipping costs)

How did you figure that? I am not against people trying to exchange their bricked device even it is their own fault, but everything costs and will be passed to consumers one way or another.

Yes but most people end up paying deductables if you got your insurance through the carrier anyway. which is what 120-150 for a new phone. which they would never get if you never damaged your phone. the money there making is already there. they get the money if you never Damage your phone, BECAUSE you pay them monthly. AND they get the money IF YOU DO damage your phone because your getting a refurbished phone anyway that you are once again paying almost 200 dallars for. the money NEVER stops on there end.

sounds like a WIN to me.

Just make sure the battery is charged. I just got a jig the other day, and it works fine. Get a jig, it's worth the few dollars it costs, for a piece of mind.
