Phones4U in the UK were the first to do this, then O2/tesco copied them and now at&t.
US carriers always ripping people off, them suppose "great deal" are nothing but a joke, pay additional for another 20 months to upgrade every 12 months? what a rip off!!!
FromChinaWithHeart, 16 Jul 2013My thought exactly. T-mobile got this [jump] program started on last Sunday. And GSMarena only... moreI think you meant to say expensive. Expansive is what AT&T's coverage is vs TMobile.
I can't believe AT&T coppied UK O2-Refresh tariffs and says that they invented it. O2-UK doing this since few months back.. www.o2.co.uk/refresh
Diazene, 16 Jul 2013T-Mobile announced a similar service, why only mention ATT's?My thought exactly. T-mobile got this [jump] program started on last Sunday. And GSMarena only mention att here and not to mention att's stuff are so expansive.
what happens once you finish paying your phone and you dont upgrade? does the bill go down or do you keep paying the fee?
Wind TV, 16 Jul 2013I went SIM-free long ago.u probably meant contract-free. why would you give up gsm for a backwards technology which is constantly playing catch-up?
pukemon, 16 Jul 2013What I don't get or maybe I am the only that does, is how is this different from just buying p... moreYou didnt know? That's how ATT operates! They are a bunch of greedy punks who mislead the innocent and unsavvy!
What I don't get or maybe I am the only that does, is how is this different from just buying phones straight contract or not? It is like atnt is coming out and this is the we are gonna rob you without a ski mask now.
This is even worse. My contract with att is up in 3 months then i will go to prepaid phone
Haven't been living in the US for years but I assumed they had that (old) concept before.
there is a fee of $20 simply not upfront but in instalment. Other wise it would be 20*20=400!
The $20 fee is on the top of your bill, so if your bill is $50 the total will be $70. I am not too sure it that good thing!
