    The prices I quoted above are for tariff only.

    You just pick the phone you want and the extra is added on top of the 25 contract fee.

    For example the Nokia Lumia 710 is 29 PM

    The Nokia Lumia 800 is 34

    iPhone 4S 40 and 49 upfront for the phone or 43 with no upfront cost.

    This is on The One Plan with unlimited data. :)
    See, this would totally work for me. I always buy my phones on eBay anyway. And I love how they offer 3000 texts or 5000 texts! American carriers always choose stupid numbers like 200 or unlimited. Unlimited of course, is a ripoff at $20/mo and 200 is too little.

    It's a very straight forward way of doing things I think alpinestars1Z.

    Just chose the tariff you want then decide what phone you would like and they add that on top per month.

    Some phones are of course free so even better. :)

    I think it's straightforward, but Americans don't. T-Mobile US did that with their value plan, and everyone just got confused LOL. Even though for most people it's cheaper for them over the length of a two year contract, a lot of people seem to be unable to do the math.

    To be honest, if you're not one of the 5% you have nothing to complain about. The highest I have ever hit was 1.5GB, once, like 2 yrs ago. As long as prices stay the same, then it's all good in my hood. ;)

    Well if you had jumped on the 2GB plan like I did then prices did go down. Now I'm grandfathered in while the rest of you have to pay $60 more for a year for data that most of you will never use.

    Its like paying $0.25 more for a humongous cup of soda at the movies, that I will just end up throwing away. It all adds up. Id I rather save the $0.25 and just buy what is enough for me.

    I don't have AT&T though, or any other national carrier for that matter, because I think they're all too expensive. But I still get AT&T service through another company (Straight Talk). :)

    I think they should start offering "rollover" data. Up to a certain amount. Just like they do with minutes.

    Here's something the Supreme Court did that I think is ridiculous:

    ...But last year, the Supreme Court upheld a clause in the Dallas-based company's subscriber contract that prohibits customers from taking their complaints to class actions or jury trials...
    All companies will start putting this disclaimer in anything you buy from them now.

    I am starting to see this popup on a lot of mobile sites now. It has to be the stupidest thing AT&T has ever done. Throttle a person with an unlimited data plan at 1.5 to 2.0 GB.
