Before people start saying "rip off"

Realize this program is for people who are into YEARLY upgrades. This is not meant to be a cheaper route for people who keep their phones for numerous years, it's simply a way to get a new phone every 12 months, without having to drop $600+ to do it.

Low upfront costs - but consistent payments. Yes, we can all do math - do the math on the $199 contract price PLUS another $649 when you're impatient and can't wait to upgrade.

$199 + $649 + $36 activation fee for initial upgrade/new line = $884


ZERO down, $27 * 12 = $324 + NO activation fee.

Yes, my above math is dependent on you getting a new phone every 12 months - if this doesn't apply to you, then disregard, as you're not the person they're trying to target with this ...
You end up paying more for the phone in the long run.... all they do when they give you a phone for 199 is put the cost of the phone in the rate plan...t-mobile 50$ plan to get the same on att its more like 80$ X24month the 30$ diff ends up being 720$...
"do the math on the $199 contract price PLUS another $649 when you're impatient and can't wait to upgrade"

it' either you pay 199$ with contract or 649$ if you not eligible to upgrade yet!

"ZERO down, $27 * 12 = $324 + NO activation fee."
