If ATT were paying attention, T-mobile has blocked customers from this work around.  

    These promotions are to add business and make a profit off you, not save you money.   Carriers don’t have a problem with customers switching.  It moves them off older, possibly cheaper plans.  They may or may not be happy with their new carrier and want to switch back.   In the end, all the switching is an expense for the customer.  A discount on phones somewhat offsets that.

Problem with BOGO offer. I currently have 2 mobile lines, that's all I need. To get the offer I need to add another line, with a new phone number equals 3 lines with ATT. Then, I can cancel one of my original 2 lines which with the new line gets me back to 2 lines. However I had to change all my stats on the line I cancelled to the new #. ATT started with 2 lines now are back to 2 lines with me, but I had to make many changes with contacts and sites. Why did I have to go through that? ATT gained nothing but selling me the one phone and free phone. That doesn't change. ATT still has 2 lines.Why do I have to go through all that hassle
of changing numbers? I'll buy the phone deal, but not having to change my phone number to a new one. Will anyone read this even though you won't respond? No, I don't think so.


because on a balance sheet that new line is a net add which investors look at...  your closing one line makes a little churn but right now they look at net adds more.

Stated I will get 1 Iphone 8 plus and the other is not an Iphone 8 Plus but only Iphone 8 so not sure why they call it BOGO??

Looks like AT&T dropped bringing the new line and Direct TV requirements for BOGO iPhone 8/Plus. But, T-mobile is offering upgrade for the existing lines on all iPhones including iPhone 7, 7 Plus as part of their BOGO offer. Not sure why AT&T limits BOGO to only iPhones 8, 8 Plus.
