I'm leaving AT&T on Thursday
My contract is up on Wednesday so I'm switching on Thursday (Thanksgiving). Party!!! Never again will I have a contract. Very unlikely that I will go back to AT&T unless they improve their pricing. If you're someone that likes lighting stacks of money on fire then AT&T is for you!
If you switch to VZ you're gonna pay more since they only have those shared plans, while at&t keeps individual plans.
Also att lets you keep old plans when upgrading, so those who got smartphones earlier, especially with 23% any top 100 fortune company discount, have incentive to stay.
