I have At&T for my business lines, cell phones and iPad data. For 6 years I have gone without AT&T cell signal in my home unless I stand at a window facing West. Anyway, last week my neighbor told me he had the same problem, complained to AT&T, and presto: they gave him a Micro Cell for $100. Sounded good to me so I called AT&T. This week a Micro Cell is $200. My neighbor received the 50% cut because AT&T was running a "special" when he called. I told the service rep that had I known about the "special" I would have given it a try. Well, he said, the price is now $200. The good news is that my business lines contract is up in November and my cell phones are off contract so, come November, I will say goodbye to AT&T and they can say goodbye to my $1,200 a month bills. I know they could care less and that is as good a reason to move on as I need. Adios AT&T.
Go to an AT&T wireless store (not a reseller) and talk to a manager. Tell him your story, the number of lines you have and your plan to drop AT&T when your contract is up. Tell you want service at home and would like a tree M Cell. They have the authority to give you one. That is how I got mine. I also got a replacement for my sister in law when the M Cell failed after the 12 month guarantee period.
