Sprint was WAY cheaper for my familiy plan. Here's what I've got now:
1 basic flip phone
1500 shared minutes
unlimited messaging (including texts)
unlimited mobile-mobile calling (any phone on any network)
Total Cost (including fees/surcharges/taxes, less my monthly discount): $194/month
I get a 27% monthly credit for my consulting work with Citigroup. Can AT&T come close to matching this price? Sprint's data network is beyond bad. It would actually be funny if I wasn't suffering with it. I'm dreading the ordeal of changing phones and swithing my family plan over, but I need to look at what else is out there. I'd rather not start the conversation with AT&T in a store just yet. Last time I did that I encountered extreme skepticism over the price I was paying and found the reps had quite an attitude about it.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The pricing change only affects upgrades, not new activations.
They also charge 35.00 per line for activation, the 30.00 for upgrade is brand new and effective 04/22/2012

The activation fee is not new at VZW. You mentioned pricing changes; that's not a change. The upgrade fee won't affect the OP until two years later.
