AT&T raising upgrade fee to $36

This is a discussion on AT&T raising upgrade fee to $36 within the AT&T (US) forums, part of the Motorola Atrix Carriers category; I have another year until I fret about this. Doesn't surprise me at all, though. AT&T loves that cash. Sent from my MB860 using Tapatalk...

    I'm not defending, it, I certainly don't 'like it'. But the way I see it, it's an $18 increase every 18 months...... ehh.

    Honestly, it is what it is. Makes you wonder what you'll be subjected to next.

    Even if you go to a new carrier, they hit you with an activation fee (guess the price -- $36!)

    It is rather unfortunate that here in the states we only have four major carriers. These four carriers has the largest selection of phones with the best features, and only four networks that offer great network features as well. There are other options for service providers if we "the people" care to move on them. I know around here there are other providers, that offer cheaper plans, and have relatively decent features. I know Cricket is it's own carrier, owned by Leap Wireless (they are a CDMA carrier). Also, in KY, there is a carrier called Bluegrass Cellular, who covers over 40 counties in KY, and offer nationwide coverage without roaming charges (I am assuming they have a leasing agreement with a larger carrier, I don't know who).

    We do have options. However, those options are overlooked when addressing issues like what phone you want and what features you require from your mobile provider. Most of us that can afford are willing to pay a premium to have said features and phones.

    So while I dislike a 100% increase in activation fees, I will pay it to be on a network that has more to offer than local carriers, who lease from major carriers when outside of their native coverage area.

    I would like to add as an after the fact note, that there are countries that don't have nearly as many options.

    I just upgraded a few weeks ago to the Samsung Skyrocket still have the Atrix to but glad I missed the upgrade fee! AT&T is the only company I can get reception with where I live. I was allowed to keep my unlimited data with an LTE phone to!

    My 7 year old son is using it for games, he has my last 3 iphones and now my Atrix. I normally get a new phone every year not married to any one brand just like to change every year. So far the SR is an awesome phone.

    Heh. Dang wrong thread. Sheesh. And BTW, yeah, the charging more for an upgrade is BS. I "upgrade" all the time by myself. Move the SIM from one phone to another one. Yeah, tough. :\
