CellularOne (now AT&T) keeping cheap users on old legacy system.

by Austiniter    Feb 6, 2008, 6:42 PM

I spoke with a Supervisor today regarding why I couldn't buy myself a AT&T Blackberry and use it on the network since CellularOne has switched over to AT&T. The Supervisor says that those CellularOne customers who are on special plans through CellularOne ($50 or $99.95 unlimited plans) can't upgrade (not even buy their own phone)and use it on the AT&T network because AT&T is keeping CellularOne user's on their OLD LEGACY system. AT&T hopes that by not allowing CellularOne customers to upgrade their phones will result in them leaving their cheap plans and coming over to more expensive AT&T plans. If your SIM card goes bad your out of luck, as AT&T will not supply you with a new sim card. You will be forced to switch over to AT&T when this happens. I wish someone would report this to the FCC and FTC. Is this legal?
