    Except, no stupid activation fees, forced picking of a plan, no tax or ATT customer service! Stormtrooper is on the way!

    This is good! Looks like the contract price is $30 less than ATT. I might choose this avenue seeing as how I have a few other items I will be ordering from Amazon. One stop shop!

    I know; but since I will already be on the site, I might as well just take care of everything in one visit/transaction :)

    That's nice to see! You get the charging pad with AT&T though, so getting it direct from AT&T is still cheaper since you get free two day shipping on both. Amazon would give you one day shipping for $3.99 if you're prime. I'd love to give Amazon my business over AT&T though. If they had any in stock, I'd be tempted since I'm still waiting to get a shipment notification of my yellow 920 ordered on the 9th.

    no it isn't $36 fee you won't get back and tax plus a plan you don't want. ATT's "no commitment" price isn't a "no plan" price. The shysters make you get a plan so they can hit you with that activation fee. The $36 and tax alone will buy an Energizer 3 spot Qi charger from Amazon.

    So what is the goal after you get it for 449$? I've been trying to figure out what the value is in buying a phone off contract. Don't you still have to pay the extremely high service price to AT&T? I was hoping that maybe by buying the phone outright I could find somewhere that offered lower monthly service but... I haven't been able to figure out if that's possible yet.

    no, I go over to Straight Talk and enjoy unlimited service for $45 while getting ATT's coverage.

    It is simple easy math:
    ATT after 2 years $2245
    Straight Talk after 2 years: 1529

    Be careful with MVNO plans, their unlimited plans are limited too | ZDNet

    Have you run into this similar problem with Straight Talk? This doesn't seem too promising...

    I'm buying full price to avoid losing my upgrade day. AT&T offered me L920 for $200 with 2 year contract extension. I didn't see a point of saving $250 by losing my upgrade date and extending contract for another 2 years.

    no but I had an acquiantance who did.....after the moron streamed 6Gb of Netflix. That will get you banned or throttled on just about anyone so he is an anomaly not the norm. In the end he is just throttled, and got it lifted after calling them.

    I hover between 2-5GB of data a month so... maybe Straight Talk wouldn't be a great option... I have hit 6GB once or twice. None of that was with Netflix though or tethering.
