    That's right!

    If you want to upgrade a phone you will be paying an upgrade fee and activation fee.

    36.00 a pop.

    I just upgraded 3 phones this month and about fell out of my chair when i saw the bill.

    Fucking thieves, This will be my last contract with these robbers.

    AT&T sucks! Same with the coverage of the service. I went Verizon and am very happy.

    Most business models nowadays are focused on separating you from your money, not providing an actual service. Carmakers are going to start phasing out CD players from cars because "everybody" has a smartphone. So, you can pay somebody (most like Apple) to buy a song. Then, you'll pay some cloud service :)rofl:) to store that song for you. THEN, you'll pay your cellphone company to send that song to your phone while you're driving, and you damned well better hope that you don't hit a dead zone.

    I'll stick to CD's, thanks.

    Why does Dawg have 3 phones? Is he involved in the drug trade?

    www.straighttalk.com is the way to go. $45/month. Unlimited data/talk/text. No contract, any phone you want and they use Verizon's network. Best move I ever made was switching to them.
