Online retailers Wirefly.com and LetsTalk.com have informed affiliates that they will no longer be able to sell AT&T handsets and wireless services. In a message sent by Letstalk to its business partners, it explained, "Effective March 8th, 2011, LetsTalk as well as other web indirect agents, including Simplexity (Wirefly), will no longer be able to offer AT&T Wireless as a carrier option to our customers. The primary reasons given for this change in AT&T's business strategy were centered around AT&T cost savings and retrenchment." Letstalk and Wirefly often offer savings on new handset prices, as well as deals that include waived activation fees or free accessories. AT&T hasn't made any announcements regarding the retailer strategy change, nor has it said if any other online retail parters, such as Amazon Mobile, will be affected.

Grow up man, and stop posting here.
These guys lure in customers with dirt cheap prices on handsets and trap you with shady provisions and hidden costs. They both have their own contracts, on top of the carrier's they're re-selling, that penalize you $250 for making even the slightest cosmetic changes to your plan within the first 6 months of your plan.
The wireless game is infested with enough shady practices as is. It's now a better place now that Wirefly and Let's Talk are no longer selling AT&T. All of these dirt bag agents are churn machines. I hope the door doesn't hit them on the way out.
