AT&T Reveals 'Next' Pricing for New iPhones
Before people start saying "rip off"
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 = $324 + NO activation fee.
Yes, my above math is dependent on you getting a new phone every 12 months - if this doesn't apply to you, then disregard, as you're not the person they're trying to target with this ...
it' either you pay 199$ with contract or 649$ if you not eligible to upgrade yet!
"ZERO down, $27 * 12 = $324 + NO activation fee."
you do realize you dont get to keep the phone right? you have to give it back to ATT in exchange for another phone like iphone6 next year.
that means you RENTING the phone for 324$ for 1 year!
You are to only do Next if yearly upgrading is your goal - otherwise you pay more. I said that in my original post, yet people overlook that and try to keep talking about it.
You pay a premium for a new phone all the time - or you can tough it out for 2 years - your choice.
Most people fall into an issue where they sign a 2 year contract, and shortly after, regret the phone they got, or just want a new one - for that, Next is great; otherwise with a 2 year, if you want a new phone before your upgrade, it'll be full retail price.
If AT&T and T-mobile cost the same per month, then nobody would be with T-mobile because their coverage isn't as good.
(I'm not saying it's garbage coverage btw, they are doing a good job of increasing their nationwide footprint...but they're still not as big as Verizon or AT&T)
On a personal note I prefer to pay a little extra and have AT&Ts service because it affords me the option of not having a land line phone (Which I would need if I had Tmo), so it's an even break for me considering that.
with ATT Next, you STILL paying FULL RETAIL PRICE for the phone, it just spread you payment into 24 months!
OR you can just buy the phone at no contract pirce!
iPhone 5 = $27/mo * 20 = $540. Last time I checked, an iPhone 5 was not available for less than $649.
Should I even bother debating this with you? It seems to be unfair to you to continue...
And seriously, you don't ever make it to 20 months - because if you did, you should have just gone with A 2 YEAR CONTRACT. Did you get that? I'm TELLING people to go 2 year contracts if they don't take advantage of the 12 month upgrades with Next. No one is disputing that genius. It's annoying how it's the same argument over and over though.
are you GOD?
i write anyway i want!
go be a teacher if you care so much about grammars!
"Only wieners care about grammars" -Conan on TBS
i like/prefer to write number than dollar sign!
also i never start a sentence with Capitol!
i guess you wiener also complain about people that write LOL instead of Laughing Out Loud? haha
Now understand how you look now - there's really no difference between the two concepts. You're trying to excuse your willful ignorance and lack of education - as if it's cool?
You are correct, that you may indeed write anyway you want, but when people put you on blast and try to shame you for acting like such a tard, you need to own it and stop getting defensive. You also need to acknowledge that getting a decent job will most definitely be a challenge.
