    They want to charge full price for the phone with a 2 year contract. That's what they want.

    As long as there is competition he will not be able to do it. Too high risk move.

    Ever try calling att to cancel your plan ? They drop their pants and bend over backwards to keep you.

    I wouldn't take what he said to heart.

    I remember when I tried canceling. I was immediately hit across the face with sales tactics & discount offers.. It's a joke. They want business, I get it. IMO, that's just desperation.

    You are already, you're paying your carrier $15 extra a month to pay off your "subsidiary". That's why you can't get a smartphone without a Data plan.

    Haha good joke. T-mobile uses AT&T towers in my area. I bet it's the same case for majority of the people in the United States.

    Yup. They force you to have a data plan. Even if you aren't under contract. It's extremely stupid because people like my grandma don't want to pay data because they have wifi to get their internet on.

I'm gone if that day comes.

    I'm wondering if this guy's a victim of his own marketing department. Ridiculous!
    Verizon is doing the same exact thing.
