No "free" phone with 2 yr contract?


No "free" phone with 2 yr contract?

I've had A T & T service over 20 years and I've never had to purchase a phone with a 2 yr contract renewal. I haven't gotten a new phone in over 3 years, so I was floored when I went to "upgrade" my phone and found that I would have to spend several hundred dollars to get my "upgrade".  I am now sadly considering changing to another service due to this.

Re: No "free" phone with 2 yr contract?

ATT stopped doing 2 year contracts and subsidized phones well over 2 years ago. Switching carriers won’t help, none of the other carriers do free phones and 2 year contracts anymore either, though you might be able to get a discounted phone as a new customer.
