149.99 - phone
13.87 - tax for my local zip
60.00 - unlimited talk & text
20.00 - 2.5GB data plan [required]
90.00 - Total incl. taxes
so 163.86 + 90.00 + 200.00 [ETF] = 453.86 to get an S4 after a month of service and paying the ETF
not bad....but the hassle is of dealing with TMobile might be the biggest headache...but then after downgrading the plan to their newer plans or even the $30 walmart plan, it's all worth it...
I got my unit for $475 without the hassle of dealing with Tmobile or Costco..
Why did I get taxed off the $580 MSRP, not off the $150 sale price? So I had to put up $44.xx for tax, instead of just $13.xx? Is it just me? I'm curious so I went online at costco.com and added this http://www.costco.com/SHARP-AQUOS...32627.html
which has discount of $2200 and what do you know? It charges me tax off the before discount price

Why costco? I bought stuff from bestbuy or B&N, like the Nook HD+ on sale for $150, MSRP $270, and I just pay tax off the $150, so just $13.xx instead of $25.xx
