note 9 bogo phone access fee


note 9 bogo phone access fee

I have a share data plan, with 3 phones on it.  i went into the store to ask about the bogo deal on the note 9, and verified with them my access fee would not go up from 15.00 each phone by getting the bogo deal.  I was told to get the deal, then after the credits arrive (3 bills or so) I could pay off the original line, and keep the phone active, and then keep the other line on the next program for the rest of the 24 month period.  I am still unsure if this is actually going to keep my access fees at 15.00 and I am afraid they will go to 40.00.  At 40.00 per line for the new line and the original line, I will end up paying more than half of the cost of the phone (600.00 in increased access fees for the new line, and 75.00 for the original line before I can pay it off).


I need to find out for sure if my fees will stay the same, and if I can safely pay of the original line phone once the credits arrive.

Re: note 9 bogo phone access fee

Your access fee is actually $40 with a $25 discount for not using a 2 year subsidy contract.   Since ATT does not use contracts any more you don’t have to worry.  

The Mobile Share value plan was structured this way to provide a discount if we used Next installments rather than subsidy, discount priced purchase. 

(I upgraded in March and it did not effect my $25 discount)

Re: note 9 bogo phone access fee

Thanks.  My only concern was buy one get one where I have to keep the phone active on the service for 2 years to get all of my credits.  I just wanted to be sure that would not be a 2 year agreement that would remove my discount.
