Hi, I had a question about taxes and fees on AT&T. The customer support staff wasn't able to answer my question, so I thought I'd post it here, maybe you can help? http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/additionalcharges/ This shows the cell phone service for your location. For example, the fee I am most interested in is the Federal Universal Service Fund, which is listed at 15.3% for the State of New Jersey. Now, 15% seems like a lot on a bill that's around $125, we're talking close to $20 in just taxes and fees for the month, then. I was hoping some of you could post your total bill and the amount that you're paying for the Federal Universal Service Fund which should be in the bill itself. Right now with Sprint, for example, I pay $110 per month before taxes, with a Federal USF Fee of $2.24 per month. However, Sprint customer support won't tell me how they are determining their fees, they just tell me what they use the money for, so I don't know if Sprint is comparable (also 15.3%) or if they are different based on carriers. If I upgrade with Sprint when eligible in February, this'll increase my bill by $10 per line per month (a total of $20) because of a new premium data fee that didn't exist when we signed up a few years ago. So, that'll be $130 per month before taxes. That being said, anyone's welcome to respond regardless of carrier. Just trying to figure out what the bottom line will be if I switched to AT&T... We're looking at around $130 with the AT&T plan as well before taxes. Both plans are comparable: Sprint offers 1500 minutes, unlimited mobile to any mobile, unlimited texts, and unlimited nights and weekends. Unlimited Data is their huge marketing point. AT&T would offer 700 minutes plus rollover, unlimited mobile to any mobile, unlimited texts, and unlimited nights and weekends. Both iPhones would have the 2 GB Data Plan. We could potentially have a use for the 4 GB Data Plan for Hotspot down the road. Our usage right now is around 100 to 200 minutes per month (the rest of our calling falls into the unlimited categories), and right now on a Blackberry Curve we use around 100-150 MB each. So, assuming that the taxes aren't 15% and adding $20 per month on my bill for the FUSF, I would consider switching. Other things to note: Activation Fee for each NEW iPhone on Sprint would be $36 (per line) Early Termination Fee to LEAVE Sprint before April 10th, 2012 would be $50 per line. No activation fee with AT&T due to FAN/Employee Discount So, it's a difference in $14 per line due to the difference of Early Termination Fee minus the Activation Fees that I wouldn't have to pay. Thoughts?
