Yes that would be what I'm saying, and as far as loosing business they more than make up for it when people cancel their contract early and get a whopping $175 bill or more for early termination.
I don't think any company does month to month blackberry (unless you already went trough your year, like I have; so I can cancel or change plan options whenever I want. But if I switch to cingular or something; then if/when I come back to TMobile I'll be locked in a contract again.)
It's my understanding that they don't care much for non-contracts because it would cost them to much to setup a phone number and internet/email for people, especialy when many have problems and call tech support alot; only to have the person quit using the service next month. Sure they do prepaid phones; but thats quite a bit less work to setup than a BlackBerry. - I would also assume that they want a contract for their internet users; incase you go completely bonkers and download a few gigs of data per month. Most have a "fair use" policy with their internet services; so if you download a few gigs per month they will most likely do something.
