So let me throw out a scenario. Lets say I am interested in the samsung galaxy s6. The retail value is $700+. I could purchase that phone for $0 if I use a large plan and pay$21 on top of that for 24 months ( or ) until the tab balance reaches $0. That makes the phone valued at $504. Would that mean, if I so desired to pay off my whole tab soon afterwards, I could essentially buy my phone for $504... Would that then cancel out the extra $21 monthly charge and allow me just to pay for the monthly plan?

Basically yes. You will have to wait 90 days to payoff the tab in full though.

Also you forfeit any promo or gifts given at the time of getting your phone if you cancel before the 90 days is up

Yes, but the Tab Large plans are of lesser value than the lower tiers. If you do some number crunching, sometimes it's better to take it on Tab M. It depends on what your plan needs are.
