Sprint vs AT&T; Prepaid versus contract
I have a contract 3gs through AT&T right now, overpaying and tired of them. Roughly $90/mo for minimal minutes and moderate to robust internet usage (grandfathered on unlimited data plan, who knows for how long) after taxes. I've been out of contract for a year + now, was thinking of upgrading as of late.
Does the price above include taxes and fees? I've never done prepaid before, but it's looking more and more intelligent to do so especially if that price is inclusive. Taxes are killer on phones...
Since it's CDMA, I'm assuming my ability to surf and talk will cease to be. Am I correct?
