DOes it count if you take your current line and stick it on a share plan? Maybe even hope onto the Next program?

Theot says:

I'm only considering this because AT&T has the best service in my area and I'm on sprint. I should be able to cover my etf's for the wife and I by selling our phones. I may look into this more. If my unlimited sprint data was fast enough to be usable that would be one thing. But it's not and I get mediocre voice coverage at home.

Guapo104 says:

Leave Sprint for AT&T, you won't regret it and they'll give you $100 too. I left sprint and their unlimited useless data and never looked back.

Tysonsaurus says:

Just so everyone knows, it's a bill credit during three billing cycles after 45 days of continued service.

Timelessblur says:

Oh look like normal current customers are treated like crap and are not offered any deal to just renew their contract.

planoman says:

It is for new or existing customers for a new line. To renew you get a subsidy on a new phone which is worth more that 100.

110 million customers 70+℅ post paid. Yeah, real worried.

I want to know where they get these numbers from...There are 314 million people in the U.S. and AT&T claims 110 million of them, and Verizon claims 102.8 million, Sprint claims 54.88 million and TMob claims 46.7 million...I guess you get a cellphone at birth now?

hodan says:

AT&T has 72.6m postpaid customers, according to their Q4 report.

If you're going to be on AT&T's service, it's best to be month-to-month rather than on a contract. I have done both with them, and when I was month-to-month, it was a much different experience with their reps than being on contract, where they think they own you - they actually believe their ETF's will keep people from leaving, and in some cases, they are right, but with T-Mobile being willing to pay that charge, there is nothing stopping customers from leaving, which is why you are seeing them scramble right now. When I was month to month, I pretty much had whatever I asked for within reason. On contract, it's, "sorry, we won't do that, and if you want to leave, we will charge you xxx.xx." The "so there" was implied, I suppose.

EDIT: Dammit, Android Central, stop flagging random sh*t as spam (dollar signs, hyperlinks, etc.). There's a post from "Sadaf Farooqi" that actually IS spam, and you let that through, but a S with a line through it your system flag? Seriously?!

planoman says:

Been with them 17 years. They provide a service which I consider the best for me and I pay them. Simple. No hate for other carriers.
Not sure because I have it on auto payment but my bill seems to be the same over all these years. I am pretty sure I pay less than my wife does on tmo. Yes she is on tmo and I am on ATT.

Not sure why anyone cares how people spend THEIR money...

That was a fast knee jerk even for AT&T. T-Mobile should release more fake press releases.

cssanarchy says:

T-Mobile sucks period.! Service is sooo bad i do not have signal just 200 yards from T-mo store.If T-Mo pays me 300 for new line i won't go.That's how bad T-Mo service is.

Jax184 says:

T-Mo service is bad....in your area... When will people get that through their heads. Huge difference between bad service, and bad service in your area.

Wollombi says:

You can't fix it. Just give him his sign. No use driving yourself crazy.

Only1Z says:

When will people realize that AT&T has already lowered prices to compete. While still slightly higher than T-Mobile, it is a FAR BETTER network. My wife and I are sharing 2GB of data is $105 a month for both phones. Big freaking deal. Actually I have have a corp. discount so it's really $92. But even at $105, it's competitive with T-Mobile. And if you need to share 4GB, that is $120. It would be $100 at T-Mobile. $20 per month for a way better network? Yes please...

Posted via Android Central App

dchawk81 says:

But...2GB. Shared.

Only1Z says:

So? You need more? Buy more. I have wifi at work and at home like most people do. People who need unlimited data are a very small population of overall smartphone users. And generally most of the "unlimited people" are trying to replace their home internet because they are cheap bastards. I work 8+ hours a day. I sleep 7 hours on average. The other 8 or 9 hours is NOT spent playing on a phone. I might get an hour or two done on my Nexus 7. But again, I'm not the exception to the rule. The people who sit on their phones all day and want to replace their home internet with mobile internet are the exceptions to the rule. If you are one of those people, go to T-Mobile and suffer when their coverage breaks down. I don't care. If you actually compare plans from T-Mobile and AT&T, they aren't much different anymore in price and you get a much better network. For example, two phones on T-Mobile with 2.5GB each is $100/month. On AT&T, you share 4GB which is nearly equivalent and it's $120/month. I'm sorry but I travel a lot. AT&T is worth the extra $20/month.

I don't care what carrier people have. I just find it awfully funny how much hate Verizon and AT&T get from T-Mobile customers. And in AT&T's case, they have made their pricing better and should get some kind of credit for that. Verizon, on the other hand, hasn't done quite as much as AT&T in that department, but I digress.

keith2k1 says:

ARE YOU KIDDING????? That is a whole gig more for less money. The one time you go over, you are going to eat all of the words you type. I hope you NEVER run over your data.

As far as the hate, that's just a part of the game. Its hard to give credit to a company that wants to give little but charge more. There is no reason why you shouldn't have unlimited LTE on both of your devices.

The small population of users needing large amounts of data is not small at all. Apps now do more (but you know this already) than ever and they are data hogs. The average AT&T user has the $30.00 (3gb) plan and they do ok. That average also includes teens which can pose a threat (FB, Insta, Vine) so from that stand point, TMo is the better choice if the service is good in your area.

Only1Z says:

If I go over, it costs $10. If you go over on T-Mobile, you're screwed with throttling until next billing cycle. I'd rather pay $10.

Posted via Android Central App

Only1Z says:

You do know the average user is less than 1gb a month based on the last I've seen. So your claim is not supported.

Posted via Android Central App

dchawk81 says:

T-Mobile sucks here too.

I hate on all carriers equally because there really is no such thing as a good deal. Everyone gives up something. Some give up speed (Sprint) while others give up money (Verizon, AT&T), and still others give up coverage (T-Mobile).

No one actually WINS.

Only1Z says:

Correct! That's what I find so fascinating. These T-Mobile customers crack me up with how adamant they are in bashing other carriers. You get what you pay for. They are all businesses out to make money off us. That includes T-Mobile. T-Mobile HAD to lower their pricing due to their inferior network otherwise nobody would go with them other than stupid people. It's a budget carrier plain and simple. That's a fact. However, I do like what they are doing as a company. Kudos to them! I can't use them because I travel too much so I have AT&T. But I don't hate T-Mobile. I just like pointing out the facts.

We added our working son to our plan through the next program to save him money and a couple of days later wife got a tablet for our anniversary all of this within the 14day return policy so we called them this AM and to keep from having to return and then reissue they are giving us the $200 credit for the two devices. Yes it is a bill credit and it will take up to 45 days but $200 is $200 espically in todays economy.

Comments like that do. AT&T has been awesome to me since 2007. And their speeds are faster than the other 3 in Denver, they also do not suck indoors like T mobile. Keep your cheap arse service, overall im paying about the same versus tmobile and can actually use the service in more places out here.

Ever since AT&T jerked me several years ago I never went back. They can kiss my ass. T-Mobile wasn't perfect either but I'd rather deal with them right now on the prepaid tip.

udazavlanje says:

Years ago, I paid them 250 for 2 lines in ETF because I couldn't deal with calling every month to "adjust" my bill. They kept charging me for going over my minutes, bc while roaming they couldn't tell if my friends were on the same network so it was just piling up. When that finally resolved, then they started having some "system errors" where I had 10-40 $ ghost charges. After my complaint, they would give me extra minutes for the next month and so on. I asked them "how come these mistakes always happen to benefit you, not me ??"

$100.00??????????????? That's a slap in the face!!!!!!!!

I just left AT&T I I had a FAN account and it seemed like because of it anything I did they tried to extend my contract for another two years to 'qualify for the discount.' After the last time I made the jump to T-Mobile and where I am the service is just as good as AT&T.

That's not correct. I'm not under contract and my 24% fan discount still applies.
