    Nevermind, if I hit the link so that it prompts me for a zip code, then it now gives me the $149 price.
    Nice!
    Only works in IE though. Can't get that zip code option in Chrome for some reason.

    It does say "$100 online discount" though. Hope the brick & mortar store will price match or offer the same deal.

    Is your area slated to get LTE service within the next three months?
    Mine is. Austin, TX.
    Supposedly tomorrow, or December at the latest.

    No the ATT store says the transmitters are ready but the backbone is not.I'm in Northern Colorado. You are lucky. Looking forward to being in Austin for the first F1 race next year

    New activation has nothing to do with the $149 price.

    Maybe the $149 is only available in zip codes where LTE is ready to go live or is already live?
    That's my best guess.

    The heck with F1.
    Come in 2013 when we have our first [international world championship superbike racing] MotoGP race on the new F1 track.

    I haven't seen anything about LTE going live in CA yet. When I just checked my girlfriends zip here in LA it was 250. But an hour south and the price is 100 less

    Los Angeles and San Francisco should be getting LTE by the end of the year, from what I've read. I can't find the articles now though. Google is full of newer NYC LTE articles so it's too time consuming to wade through those for what I read a week or so ago.

    I can't order online because I need a new SIM (at least that's what I heard) and it was complaining about my unlimited data plan. I did verify that you can keep your unlimited data plan when you go to LTE. I was told though, that they will no longer give you a subsidized upgrade on that line unless you give up your unlimited plan. So I have to buy my phone outright. So, I'll be ordering over the phone later today.

    I think you can just take the phone in to get a new sim card - from what I read

    As someone mentioned, the $149 is for those in LTE-networked areas then? I even have a Premier account thru my company, and coupled with the $100 discount, still at $249. I peeked over at walmart.com, but they don't offer it yet. They typically have sold phones around $40-50 less than ATT if purchased online.

    Well I hope that's not true, because my unlimited data plan is the only reason I'm staying with AT&T. If theyre not going to subsidize, I'll just wait a month until my full 2 years is up and pick up a nexus on Verizon...

    But if you switch to Verizon, aren't you going to have to get a tiered data plan as well?

    I don't know that that's accurate. I would expect LA to get LTE before more suburban orange county, but I'm getting 149 under my oc zip code, and my girlfriend in LA is getting 250... I could be wrong though: it could be that OC is setup and it's just not listed on the coverage map.

    Edit: AND LA is now listed as $149 instead of 249. Dont know why it changed , but disregard any anecdotal evidence from me. <sigh>

    Yes I will, but at least I'll have ICS. I'm just trying to weigh pros and cons, and the unlimited data plan is what has been keeping me on AT&T when Verizon provides better coverage in the area where I recently moved.

    terefel--barring any any delays (you never know with carriers), I would expect the Skyrocket to get ICS early 2012, which would even the comparison, or in some ways, tip it over the Nexus. Maybe I need to have my brother-in-law check if his part of CA has the $149 price. The midwest is getting hosed on deals!

    Edit: if the Galaxy Nexus made its way to ATT, that would make it an interesting choice for me.
    11-06-2011 12:50 AM
  23. terefel's Avatar
    Yeah the deal thing is really bizarre. It said 249 for LA, then I clicked to an OC zip and it said 149, and when I went back to an LA zip it said 149. Who knows what's going on.

    And when skyrocket goes ICS, you're right it could tip the scales. But we also haven't seen gallery comparisons that I've seen, plus the big chipset debate.

    ^^^If it shows now as $149, I'd pull the trigger if I were you!

    I'm holding out until later this month when the Galaxy Nexus debuts, and see if it comes out for more carriers than just Verizon. BTW, Best Buy has a deal (thru Tuesday) where if you get a phone, you get 5000 reward points, equivalent to $100 in savings.

    I don't think $150 is based on LTE service.. I am in Boston, and LTE went live here today but the price is $250 for the phone. It might be based on something else or it could've been a mistake.
