    I've convinced my friend to use his upgrade (he has an iphone 4 and has been sitting on an upgrade for more than a year) He is tech illiterate. When we went to the AT&T store, he ended up liking Moto X, LG G2 and Galaxy Note 3. He hates iOS 7. He does not own a computer, so I was leaning towards advising him to get the Note 3 because of the big screen (he does all of his browsing on his phone). I'm a fan of the Moto X and it pains me to have to recommend a phone with touchwiz on it but I think for what he needs, the note 3 might be the best. He was mesmerized by the leather back and using two apps side by side feature.

    Problem is that it is 299 on contract while Moto X and LG G2 are 99 on contract. We are thinking to wait to see if there are any sales comining up. He may be willing to get it for 199. Does anyone know of any sales coming up?

    FYI - That $149 is only for New Accounts ... Just got mine as an upgrade and it was $299 on contract ... Also, as an FYI - If you're lucky enough to have grandfathered unlimited data they likely won't be able to help you at the store ... You'll have to do it through the web. The web will show your current plan and let you do the upgrade. At the store they said it wasn't available to them so I couldn't finish the transaction. Went home and within 5 minutes was set and ready to go. 'Course the disadvantage is having to wait ... I'm monitoring my UPS thread right now ! Ordered on Saturday and it should be delivered Today ...

    I have been an AT&T subscriber for over 10 years and I can tell you that it's not for new accounts. If you try and place the order online, it will default from the $149 price to $299 price when you add it to the cart. I called AT&T about this on Monday. After half of a day of investigations, they called me back and sold it to me for the advertised price of $149 with a 2 year contract extension (I was on month to month because my contract expired a few months ago). I was told it was a "website glitch" and that they were able to order it for me over the phone. Give it a try - you have nothing to loose.

    I ordered mine on Monday and was able to get it for $149 / free shipping and a waived activation fee. The only caveat was that I spent a lot of time on the phone with AT&T trying to get them to make good on the advertised website price. In the end, they agreed and sold it to me for the $149 and gave me free next day shipping. It really is worth calling and being as polite as possible.

    Amazon had it for $149 too but no longer, least expensive is $249. I think if you've been an AT&T customer for a number of years (say 3 or more) you could call retention and get the $149 price. That's what I intend to do as I didn't have a chance to get one when they were $149. If AT&T & Amazon were selling it for $149 I have to believe you could still get one at that price through AT&T. It's the profits from the contract that AT&T is concerned with, not selling the phone for $149, they have already built in the full cost of the phone in your monthly service charge. If they sold it at that price it can still be had at that price. When I call retention for either the wireless or UVerse I always express the payment in annual terms and that in my experience lends a more favorable focus on getting the deal you want. (i.e. do you want me to spend $1500-1700 a year with AT&T or Verizon?)
