    they told me that if I upgraded with my July 1st upgrade... that just my contract.....not my phone would cost me an extra 40 bucks a month. The phone is more.

    Call, ask for the retention dept. and threaten to cancel. I promise you they'll cave to at least what your original plan is.

    Right now I am on the bare minimum plan, $45 a month.

    Im out of contract, going month to month.

    New phone would require 2 yr contract and phone cost $299 with a $40 activation fee.

    Or i could go 12 month or 18 month plan, but then you gotta pay like more than $700 for the phone.

    Agreed. ... when I bought my last phone I called them and told them I wanted it for the same price as I saw on amazon or I was leaving. They gave it to me for half price

    Seems like they are the only phone company that gives a shit

    I need to look into T Mobile. My gf and I have the same model iphone except she's ATT and I'm Verizon. A couple of times a week she needs to use my phone to make a call b/c ATT is out. And this is the main area of Atlanta - not out in the boonies.

    I just bitched about it on twitter and AT&T customer care account saw it and reached out to me.

    Maybe they are going to work out a deal for me!

    Verizon, like Wells Fargo or Bank of America are so BIG, they don't give a shit. I'm sure T-Mobile is not some little mom and pop operation, but they seem to be more responsive than other carriers.

    That said, one of my corporate clients got into a fight w Verizon and switched over to AT&T. The employees, who relied heavily on cell phones went thru the roof. As fucked up as they are w customer service, Verizon does seem to deliver the connectivity.

    I've never heard one good comment about AT&T.
