$36 upgrade fee?
Not picking on AT&T, they're just all greedy. It's all about the bottom line. Doesn't make one any better than the other
It will certainly not be savings from cuts to the infinite layers of middle management stooges and pseudo self important quasi authoritarians that make up the majority of AT&T leadership group...
No instead they will douche out the customer and screw their dealers...
It is what it is.
Try Sprint - oops, they already have a $36 upgrade fee.
How about T-Mobile? Oops again, they have an $18 fee, and already announced that is increasing.
Wow, these fees are not exclusive to AT&T? Who'd a thunk?
Hmm, what a conundrum.
I take those upgrade phones and sell them to pay for our International SGS II i9100s and put them on a the $10 MediaNet plan and save $480 per year on Data. No LTE here for years anyway. WE may just dump ATT and go to Straight talk for Unlimited everything at $45 a month. Same 3G speeds as MediaNet. ATT cannot register every IMEI of every device in the world.
Been doing it for years since Cingular.
Saved a pile of money and have a better Phone than ATT offers. We have two upgrades coming in April. I will be glad to pick up and sell a couple iPhone 5s when they arrive.
