Getting ATT wireless at a reasonable price

Beowaffle 22 May 25, 2012 at 04:25 PM
I've been on the $30/month plan from T-mobile using groove IP for voice chat, and the quality is so poor I starting looking in to switching to ATT, but the cheapest plan I can put together would be $90 (450 mins [$40], unlimited texts [$20], 3 GB data [$30]). Is there any way to get a better deal? I need about 300 minutes, unlimited texts, and at least 2 GB of data. Thanks

See if the company you work for has a plan to get a percentage off or see if they do a discount through AAA. Sprint waves the activation fee and does an 11% discount for AAA I believe. And through my wifes work we get 25% off service and we got free activation and 25% off accessories. Also when talking to them you can get your phone discounted and possibly up to 50% off your data package for 6 months... when I was with them I managed to get that. But we hated AT&T and now spend a bit more for Verizon but get superior service and twice the data for less per gb.

AAA discount for sprint is now 10% and there is no free activation anymore except on particular phones on particular promotions (like the rleease of the htc evo 4g lte). Frown
