AT&T today announced a handful of new options for its Mobile Share plans — including an 8GB bucket. But the bigger news is that the cost of your device is being separated from the service. And that means if you're not going with a subsidized phone — either because you're buying outright or are bringing your own device — you'll save $15 a month. And once your contract's up, you'll automatically moved to that cheaper, off-contract pricing. Not a bad thing at all.
And starting Dec. 8, AT&T's adding an 18-month upgrade option through its AT&T Next program. Payments are spread out over 26 months, and you can get a new phone every year and a half.
