I would guess they plan to eventually make the legacy plan cost the same amount as their current plan (that required direct tv). At $40 it's almost what it costs for for lines as their current offering (of course you also get ulimited minutes and texts with those).

I enjoy being able to text while still talking with them and I get service in the basement of my job. I also am able to still get service at the tailgate, when varying others aren't.

Okay that's another negative, but honestly I paid for the first one before the subsidy existed and the past two iPhones I bought outright.
That's what pushed me over the edge and I left AT&T.
I had a 4 line family plan so that's about $1800 in device subsidies every 2 years that was instantly gone. I wouldn't mind the $5 or $10 price increase but once they stopped the subsidy model I was out quick :)

Grrr. I'm thinking I'll stick with them anyways, currently paying $76/mo after FAN. They're rly pushing it tho. At least it's not the same jump Verizon pulled on their legacy customers.

I'm just going to throw this out there... this is what a phone payment cost, unlimited data, unlimited talk, unlimited text, and unlimited hotspot from Verizon runs me every month. Just upgraded to 7+ is why most recent bills are weird but the $231 is what it cost for the above... ON A SINGLE LINE



I see all you all posting about ~$80 bills... just know, it COULD be a LOT worse.

(I usually use 50-60gb of data a month to "get my monies worth" just for the record so one of the new data bucket models just wouldn't work for me... )

That's crazy man.
Stop throwing your money to Verizon.

Another UDP increase, they really want people off UDP. I might leave them if that's the case and try out T-Mobile One.
T-Mobile one is actually a great plan right now with the new changes. It seems they're moving away from the net neutrality gray area of things, which I can totally get behind.

I don't mean this to sound rude, but I don't see how you're getting your money's worth. We have four lines, three of which include "lease payments" and pay about $190 a month. My son used 32 gigabytes streaming videos in the car last month, so believe me when I say we do use data. I actually considered canceling home internet and streaming everything through our phones. Wife didn't like the idea though lol.

My T-Mobile bill with taxes and fees is about $170 per month.

For 4 unlimited everything lines with 16gb each of tethering, and free international roaming.
