Re: Consumer Unfriendly
The upgrade fee is a bogus fee....everyone knows it....the reason it is charged is as a negotiating tactic...you have a customer who is angry for one reason or another and you need to calm him down....you waive the fee..the customer thinks he has 'won' because he pulled one over on the big multinational conglomerate....when in fact he didn't win anything, all you did is waive a fee that no one cares about in the first place....
Why do we charge an upgrade fee? So that you can have something to waive if you need to appease a customer....that's the only reason.
That's what we were told by at&t corporate.
