    I will have to look into that. I normally would not give up my current phone and keep it as a backup, but my GS2 died and I got this pos Atrix HD to hold me over til my upgrade came up. They can have this stupid thing!

    Do you know if you have to hand it over right then and there, or if they allow you a few days to move stuff over and ship it??

    Best deal requires some money up front and going to a different operator (or mobile virtual network operator), but the money saved over the contract life with AT&T should more than make up for it.

    With AT&T:
    99.99 Phone (if you get that $100 trade in mentioned)
    36.99 Activation fee
    2879.76 (119.99 x 24) (individual plan for unlimited minutes and text with 3GB data for 24 months, not including taxes)
    $3016.74 Total

    Straight Talk:
    764.99 Phone (unlocked)
    $50 Straight Talk SIM for AT&T network(can get micro-SIM or cut a standard, need to get from eBay or other party as Straight Talk can't sell them right now, prices are varying)
    1200 (50x24) Straight Talk unlimited voice, text and data (used $50 instead of advertised $45 due to taxes or such, so it will vary I just went to a high number
    $2014.99 Total

    Since both are on the AT&T network for the actual service there is little to no difference in coverage. From what I've read the only time you may notice a difference is if you were to be in a roaming area on someone else's network that has a roaming deal with AT&T. With Straight Talk you only get service directly from AT&T when using the AT&T network Straight Talk SIM. I've not found a place I normally go without AT&T though.

    Heck, with that difference you could even update annually and still be a little better on the price.

    Umm..thanks? I joined my sister's family plan 3 years ago and only pay $40/mo. So, it's her contract to worry about (I'm just tagging along, so what I do doesn't affect them anyway), and I couldn't possibly save money elsewhere.

    Hate that you wasted all that time on that..

    Yeah, if you are just paying for the cost to add on to a family talk plan you can't beat that price. No real waste of time, I only had to look up the activation cost as I just switched my 3 lines on a family talk plan to Straight Talk last week. AT&T didn't like me using smartphones that I bought overseas on their $10/month data plan and were going to up my rate. Did that for 2 years since getting the S2 in June of 2011 in Norway, but with the new S4 they detected it.
