ATT sent me a letter that 2g support would basically end within 2months and that I should bring in my 2g basic phone for a free, no contract impact swap to one of 4 basic 3g phones. As I have an extra line for my wife and she has a 2g phone, I brought both in to exchange. I was told they would only change mine and to change 2nd line basic phone I would need to pay an upgrade fee and sign a new 2 year contract. We have not had a contract for at least 10 years and keep going on same terms as expired contract.
A note…though we have 550 combined monthly minutes, we barely use less than 40 per month and I have always paid online the day bill is available, so ATT has been making a bundle on us for extremely low use at $55 a month for only voice use. I explained that swapping one phone and not 2nd one would leave 2nd line disabled, but they did not care. They will not swap the 2nd line basic phone unless I pay and sign 2 year agreement! I am now looking at finally going to Verizon on 65+ plan and company discount making monthly fee for 2 lines $52.50 plus taxes for 450 minutes…plenty or us.
ATT is trying to shaft us by allowing only 1 phone swap to 3g, making 2nd line our problem. Something is wrong in this methodology of stopping phone supprt and providing no new phone..especially with the HUGE profit they have and still make from us for such minmal phone use!
