Hi SDs,

i need some help in understanding the breakdown on the ATT Grandfathered Plan vs the ATT NEXT Plans.

I currently have the Grandfathered Plan - 2 year contract for me and my wife with an 15% company discount . the plan has unlimited data.

Most offers on BF or CM are only for ATT Next.

I am totally confused if ATT Next will be more expensive for me or not? any breakdown/explanations will be really helpful.

I can't really help. I too am interested in this question. I too have 2 phones grandfathered into the unlimited data and my company discount is 25%. If that were all to it, I would not leave.

My thoughts are that the next program can save you money if you don't upgrade your phone right away. The savings comes from the cheaper plan, once your phones are paid off.

The complication for me is our preteen daughter using our hand me down iPhones. At the end of 2 years att (upon request) will unlock the phone.

When I upgrade my daughter gets the old phone. Currently I have her on a T-Mobile pay as you go plan. For $30 she gets 100 min talk, unlimited text, and 5gb high speed data. When she uses all 5gb then it drops to slow speed. But it doesn't stop and there are no overages.

For me, the problem is her coverage sucks. I can't afford putting her into an att plan and I cannot have her share data with us. She burns it up quick on Netflix. Then complains the next 3 weeks till it starts over. On att sharing plans I think we'd all be unhappy.

the grandfathered plans with the 2 year contract phones are a screamin good deal in todays market. The only better deal might be a prepaid plan if you rarely buy a new phone or dont care about having the newest model.
