AT&T to Force New Customers to Use Its Mobile Share Data Plans

Posted by · 18589 views · Translate
AT&T has announced that only its Mobile Share data plans will be available to new customers.

Beginning Oct. 25, we’re streamlining the plans we offer new customers. Our customers have expressed an overwhelming preference for simplified options that allow them to share data across multiple devices. New customers will have the choice of any of our Mobile Share plans, which start as low as $50 a month for a basic phone or $70 a month for a smartphone – both of which include unlimited talk and text and 300MB of data that can be shared. In 95 percent of the new customer scenarios, Mobile Share offers the same or better price with additional value.

For current customers, there is no change. They can choose to switch to Mobile Share, or they can continue to enjoy, upgrade or downgrade their existing plan. No customers will be forced to switch plans if they’d like to stick with what they have – even when upgrading to a new device.

I spy a blatant lie. I am currently an AT&T customer, on a grandfathered unlimited data plan. I am trying to upgrade my two telephones -- even willing to buy the phones, outright -- and I'm being told I must choose a new data plan. I've been fighting this for nearly six weeks. My next step is to file a complaint.

Why are you all complaining, acting like they are a not for profit, volunteer run company? They are in business for one reason, and that's to make money. STFU, pay your early term fees, and go to metroPCS, since clearly all that matters is the bottom line; forget about quality of service and devices available - go ahead and switch to metro, use your phone when possible, and pay $400 for a 3.5 inch android phone.

Why metropcs? verizon, sprint, or even t-mobile is looking good just about now...

^hahaha adding verizon to that list. Guarentee verizon does the same thing in a little bit. These 2 always do. People are annoyed because they constantly price gouge the consumers and in doing so are offering less and less. Price goes up for less service and a lower ceiling.
