the contract (assuming you can afford it at all... it is more than just
a phone).

I had a Android Sprint Evo 4G and a Verizon Droid without contract.  I 
was considering getting service with Sprint or Verizon.  Neither would 
give me $1.00 off my monthly cost if I brought my own phone.  So I gave 
one away, and traded the second for a nexus-1.  T-mobile does give you a 
significant discount if you bring your own phone (on the order of $240 
over 2 years).

Depending on your usage patterns, budget, and access to Wifi you might 
consider not paying for a data plan.  T-mobile allows this if you bring 
your own phone.  Neither sprint or verizon does.  In fact the Evo4G adds 
a $10 a month "4G" charge... even if it's not available in your area. 
Considering data is around $30 a month that might make a pretty big 
difference if you are on the edge of affording an android phone.
