Thread: Limited Time: AT&T Offering Double Data on Mobile Share Plans Until October 31st

  1. #41
    i just upgraded my phone to the 6 using AT&T Next. I have 6 phones on my family share plan. Now all of a sudden my phone is on an entirely new 20gb family share by itself and it shows I'll be laying $190 for that plan PLUS the $130 for the 15gb plan the other 5 are on. Please tell me this is a mistake and not some small print clause of doing Next. Their CS is closed until the morning so I have to wait to call. Better be a screw up on their part because this phone would go straight back to the store.

    I just checked this morning. There is no promotion if you are on a 10 gb plan.

I gave up the unlimited data on the 2 phones and I'm on the $160 family share plan with 10 gigs shared and with my 20% discount with my job brings it down to 128 but with taxes and all my bill is 158! We only use between 6-8 gigs every month!

    I do, and everyone I know multitask.

    Check out your TOTAL bill! Not just the DATA plan. 2 smartphones with Unlimited talk+text and 30 GB of data is $160 total monthly. Unlimited talk+text and unlimited data for 2 phones is: 70+40+60= $170. Also if you have a corporate discount, you get that off the entire $130 price, not just the $30/phone on the unlimited plan.

    Just give them a call if you haven't already. I had the same problem when I upgraded 3 of the lines on my account to iPhone 6 under the NEXT plan and it moved all 3 lines to a separate shared plan. CS will move them back no problem.

    This would be a great deal if $130 include it one line, but every line have to pay that extra charge of 15 or 40 buck.

    I called and they changed it to 30gb a month,I'm happy :-)

    Giving up "unlimited" data is probably no big deal, since AT&T's unlimited data hasn't been unlimited for years. (I'll never understand how AT&T got away with that. But anyway, back on topic...) This is AT&T. There must be a catch here. Those folks that have switched to this plan, what's the downside? There must be one. Even if you end up saving money each month and getting more data, and free text messaging (including some, selected, international texts) and unlimited voice calls, somewhere along the line you must have sold your soul to Beelzebub, surely? It's inevitable. This is AT&T.

    What's the catch? I guess there'll be extra charges based on phones that are either on the Next plan, or still being paid off under an existing 2 year contract. They must have figured a way in which your monthly bill will end up higher. But probably most folks won't see that until their next billing statement, by which time there will be no way to switch back. I'd be interested to hear from folks trying to switch from existing 2-year plans whose phones are still under contract. Is this month-to-month, or are you then locked into AT&T for all eternity?

    I also wish AT&T would have supported the 10GB plan, since that's what I'm on. Unfortunately, companies have a habit of making you pay more to get what you want. So the only way to get on a double-data plan is to be on a 15GB or more plan.

    Yes.. And even if you're on the 10GB.. This whole $160/mo for 4 phones thing has been a promotion. When my son upgraded from 5 to 5S a few months ago we lost the the $25/mo "discount" off the usual $40/mo per-phone price. So now I'm up to $185/mo..

    The NEXT plans are only a good idea if you want to treat your phone like a car lease and have to turn it in for a new one each year. I like saving up for a new phone and then having less per month outgo.. And be able to sell my old phone on eBay for more than I paid for it. My wife's and my upgrade time is a year apart so I always have an upgrade I can use each year to buy at new contract pricing. She never wants new phone.. Lucky me.. .. She's still happy with her 4S. .. Gonna give her my 5S.. though I'd love to sell it for near $400.

    No, sounds like it only applies to the 15GB (now 30GB) and up plans. I also have the 10GB plan and it still shows 10GB. I think they're doing this to get people to upgrade.

    Or they could just be trying to compete with Sprint and T-Mobile.

    ATT has always been the big dog on the block. ATT sets the "norm" for pricing (high end) and all other companies offer lower deals to compete. It's just like Apple. Always will be highest priced smartphones. ATT doesn't have to compete as much. They're the most used. Verizon close 2nd.. All others very distant in % of all users. I'm not for a moment saying that AT&T offers the best customer service or anything else… Just that they have the largest share of the market. they "set the tone" for the rest of the market. So they'll never be the lowest priced. They don't need to be. People stay with them because they've been with them for 20 years or more.and because AT&T has the name recognition of having been the longest standing long distance service company even before smart phones were around.
