Re: Collusion Well, first off let me say this is definitely smelling of collusion.
But, AT&T did come in with an edge, and that's on the handset. Just before I came to BBR and read this today I was on another site and saw the Galaxy Nexus advertised as a link to VZ,.. they want $649 for it out of contract. I'm not too sure that too many people are going to feel like paying that price and will opt to change plans with VZ. With AT&T not forcing a full price phone at LEAST, if I can say anything nice, is that they're being reasonable about it.
I also didn't see if AT&T is forcing this as their ONLY plan, of if their share plans are an option in addition to other types of plans.
Edit: AT&T isn't making this the ONLY option.. they state they'll still offer the traditional family plans. THAT is a plus! Seems to me this will give AT&T a leg up over VZ. Then again, sooner or later, AT&T may come out, if a majority of people adopt them, and say that no one wants the old plans any more... or something. Who knows.
