AT&T Mimics Verizon, Pushes Upgrades to 24 Months
This 24 months thing could backfire...
contract end date could very well backfire. In the past, many folks would get a new phone and sign a new contract at 20 months. It was easy to convince them to, because they still had 4 months of contract left and they needed a new phone. It was almost a "reward" for loyal customers. Now, with the 24 month plan when you're finally eligible to get a new phone, the option to walk with no ETF is on the table too.
Personally, I think T-Mobile's business model is fairest. You pay full price for your phone, with payments as part of your bill. When it's paid off, you only pay for your service.
I think when my Verizon contract is up, I might go to T-Mobile for a smartphone because the prices are good, and it works well in my area. For travel and emergencies, I'll make sure to have a $30 prepaid Verizon flip phone available so I can use "the network". Look Ma, it's the best of both worlds, minus the assrape!
