Traditonal Upgrades No Longer Available at 18 Months
I decided to look at my upgrade options today, as I wanted to double check that right about Christmas our accounts should be eligible for an upgrade. It used to be that 18 months into a 24 month contract, we'd have upgrade options. Now, all we are offered are these ridiculous NEXT upgrades, or to wait the entire 24 months of our contract before upgrading. That 18 month upgrade is what has kept me with AT&T all these years. Every time I'd look to shop around, I'd decide that I didn't want to wait another 6 months, and went ahead and upgraded and signed a new contract. I am not interested in the NEXT plans. Anything that ups the monthly fees and charges me more in the long run is not something I want. Why take away the traditional 18 month upgrade option? Now when my 24 months is up I guess I will be shopping around. I do not appreciate it when companies try to force consumers into their latest and greatest schemes, in this case NEXT.
