Re: New pricing discourages upgrades - a summary of my options
Apparently there is no stipulation that you have to pay the ETF in one chunk immediately upon early termination. ATT charged me $175 plus 6% sales tax (Maryland rate) which amounted to another $10.50. My response was to faithfully pay them $25 per month for 7 months (and not a cent in state sales tax). I thought that the slow ETF payment partially offset them charging my credit card a full month ($85) for for 4 days of service in my last month (Feb 25 - Feb 28) in a month that normally ran from Feb 25th through March 24th had I not early terminated on the 28th. I have heard of people paying as low as $1 per month or less for ETF. I just felt that $25 per month was more than reasonable enough for the greedy likes of ATT and Verizon!
