Recently my husband went in to A T & T in Elk Grove Village, IL for a new phone. His phone wasn't working and he needed a new phone for the business. He told them he wanted an upgrade if he was elgible yet he wanted the cheapest phone possible. He came home with an i-phone 5C and told me it was $50. A week ago I got the phone bill and noticed a charge for a $550. phone on a monthly installement plan of $21.22 a month for 26 months! He was never told about this and there was also an additional $10. in insurance charges. I went in to complain and was told that my husband misunderstood and this is the way A T & T and all other phone companies do their plans now. This may be true but he was never told this or given the option of a less expensive phone which is what he asked for.
Two days later we went back together and were told this was cheaper thatn the $40. two year contract fee so we were "saving money". The store manager was the one who sold him the phone and eventually did admit that if we wanted "a floor model " we could get one for only $10. a month. Now the hitch is that it had been more than 14 days and we can't exchange or return the first phone. Do we have any options? I would quit A T & T but we'd have to pay for the phone anyway.

What kind of plan do you have? With Mobile Share plans, customers actually get discounts one their monthly plan for not being under contract and buying their phones with AT&T Next, those discounts usually make up the difference in price.

I only see one store listed for Elk Grove Village, and it's an authorized retailer, NOT a company owned store. Beware of these guys. They're usually more interested in making a sale than helping a customer, and may not give you all the information you need.
