An AT&T smart phone upgrade fee will now cost you $200. If you recently signed a 2 year commitment with AT&T and you decided after a couple months later that you want a new smart phone, it’s going to cost you $200. As I recall, the AT&T early termination fee is $350.
In my case, I’m out of contract. I still haven’t decided which phone to get or what carrier to go with. Typically, you can get a great deal by jumping to another wireless provider than the one you are currently with because usually wireless providers consumers tantalizing offers to get you to jump ship.
It’s a good possibility I may just do that.
