    You can also use it to get phones like the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One for only $100 too.

    I saw this earlier today and have been thinking about doing it.

    Currently have an iPhone 4s and while I could wait for the new "5s", the "s" upgrade cycle always sucks and simply bumps the specs a little from the real upgrade cycle (4, 5, etc).

    Plus if I get the 5 now it's not like I'm losing money since the 5 would still be $99 w/ contract once the 5s comes out in a few months.

    Decisions decisions :confused:

    You can also buy a new phone on a month-to-month contract for 50% off. I picked up the S4 for $319 on a month to month instead of messing up anything on my account. I'll probably check it out for a bit a resell it for $400-450 if it ships. With Month-to-Month you can just cancel your month-to-month as soon as you get your phone without any penalty.

    So you 100% sure we can cancel the "Month-to-Month" immediately upon receiving the phone?

    I don't see why not. This is not PRE-PAID. You will get a pro-rated refund depending on when you cancel. It would be just like any other line on your account that is not on a contract. If you cancel that line you wouldn't pay for the days in your billing cycle you didn't have service on it. I see no where where it states you must pay a full month of service and there is no ETF since there is no contract.

    More than likely the orders will get canceled but I'll give it a shot anyways.

    I've been getting some PM's on how to do the month to month plan. Here is how so I am not bombarded with PM's :D

    Goto: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/smartphones.html

    Choose Month to Month on the left hand side.

    Choose your device. S4 for example. (it only seemed to work on the 16gb model)

    Choose add to cart.

    Choose New customer.

    Choose minutes plan: 450min for example.

    Choose data plan: 300mb for example.

    Choose continue on to next step.

    Verify information in cart looks correct as in the 50% off discount and Month-to-month plan. Continue through the normal checkout process.

    That's not free. You gave them an iPhone 4. Which you could have sold for $200 and then buy an iPhone 5 for $100 from AT&T. That would leave you an extra $100 in your pocket.

    Hmm this is interesting. $319, plus whatever they charge you prorated, do you also pay the $36 activation fee? Even if this approaches $400 it's still a great deal. I think the best you could get on contract would be the $100, plus $320 from breaking the contract, plus I'm assuming activation fees and proration.

    Well the site SAYS that a 2 year contract is required for the 50% off, but when people are adding "off contract" into their carts, the system seems to still be offering 50% off full retail-off contract pricing. Seems like a glitch. I am wondering if AT&T will honor it or cancel order attempts.

    There are several different options varying in price and allowance. With 450 min, 3gb data and unlimited messaging the monthly rate is $90/mo plus tax.

    However, I just spoke with a representative about the 'data share' plan which is also available for an individual line. Unlimited calling and messaging plus 4gb data for $110/mo. Seems like a better deal as each extra gb is $15 on the other plan.

    Waived.


    Definitely a glitch or an unintended consequence of how they implemented the discount. We shall see what they do with orders when people receive phones and cancel the monthly plan. Who likes to gamble? :)

    Nah... I actually just went ahead and pulled the trigger on a Galaxy S4 Active (Used an upgrade on my daughter's line... she's 11 and does fine with a dumb phone and an iPod Touch.)

    Wife traded in her 8b 3GS for the iPhone 5 for $100. pretty good deal for her and her slow phone.

    However, they charged a $36 activation or some fee (we are currently ATT customers). I didn't realize this until teh bill came and she said "yeah they mentioned that"

    AND on that link there is a $36 activation fee noted in teh fine print...any tips on getting that removed?

    So, how much would a 32gb cost? Is it only for 16gb?

    Just checked. Looks like the 32 is still $299. Would have definitly jumped on one of those or a 64 for half price.

    Makes sense given that the 32 is more than $199. :D


    Looks like AT&T is cancelling a lot of the orders. I bet someone was in trouble this morning. :cool:

    Dang, really? You're talking the half-off retail, month-to-month pricing, right? I knew it was too good to be true. AT&T's not an upstanding company where they'd live up to their mistakes and honor the orders like that.
