AT&T Offers T-Mobile Customers Up to $450 to Switch
AT&T today announced a new offer that will give T-Mobile customers up to $450 in credit to switch to AT&T. AT&T will give T-Mobile customers device trade-in credits of up to $250, which AT&T says can be used towards AT&T goods and services. Trade-in values will vary depending on the device and its condition. AT&T is also offering T-Mobile customers a $200 credit per line when they transfer their number to AT&T. In order to get the $200 credit, T-Mobile customers will need to activate an AT&T Next plan, buy a device at full retail price, or activate a device they already own. The offer, which will only be available for a limited time, goes into effect today.
Verizon nearly shyt themselves when ATT tried to buy and helped get it blocked....the same thing will happen is Verizon tries the same routine.
A recent article mentioned that Verizon is considering making an offer for TMobile. Sounds like an attempt on AT&T part to erode the base of subscribers
I wish that Verizon and Sprint would both forget a...
Why such an aggressive move?
4 Lines sharing 2GB (laughable I know) would be $155 per month at AT&T. 4 lines with 2.5GB (and no overage) EACH would be $140 at T-Mobile. Make that cap 500MB to keep everything equal and the price is $100, a savings of $55 per month!
A single line user would pay $80 to AT&T for 2GB plus unlimited talk and text vs. $60 to T-Mobile for 2.5GB. Again, at AT&T you'd get a bill if you went over that 2GB!
Why not offer a plan better than the competition instead of trying to get confused customers to port in?
I live on the eastern seaboard, in NC. Tmobile and Sprint are both aweful here...terrible. I'd rather pay ...
Only if you bring unlimited data back....
Carriers need to realize that the word unlimited means no bill shock and if you are using shared data then that is more of a chance considering you get charged per GB.
Read the fine print
btw, I just came out of contract and switched to their new plans. I'm saving $15 per line and I have NO CONTRACT!
Also, let me get this straight... they want you to trade in your device AND bring your own device to activate? Really?
