AT&T’s Next phone upgrade plans are a huge ripoff
AT&T unveiled its new Next plan today, which allows you to pay a small monthly fee for the privilege of upgrading your phone every year without a down payment. It’s a clear response to T-Mobile’s Jump plan, which costs $10 a month and allows for an upgrade every six months. Both plans sound like a great idea: you’ll get a new phone much faster than before, without having to pay hundreds of dollars up front or resigning your contract every time.

    Just another ripoff from AT&T. The competition is scrambling to match industry movers like T-Mobile and Solavei.
