It is also expensive to pay higher monthly rates to a user for a couple of years, and to be prevented from switching to a cheaper network or plan until the "jail-time" ru out (or you can, but it costs you even more as you then still need to keep paying the original or you need to buy yourself out from the contract).

In many cases, it is not necessarily always more expensive to buy an unbranded device. It depends. And sometimes paying for more freedom is also worth the extra cost, if there is one.
