The S8 sale they had for 350 was a better deal i think. Seems like the same phone but they just added stereo speakers

Only good for NEW customers/lines. Typical AT&T treat existing customers like crap and wonder why retention and reputation sucks.

Yes because they're in business to give stuff away and never recoup it, entitlement gone wild.

Yeah, because nothing says your FIRST priority is serving your customers than making them pay for new freeloaders.

Or, entitlement gone wild for non-customers, because they won't get a second thought once they become customers.

Nothing says "well run business" than new customer acquisition costs gone wild.

What constitutes "crap" , a bargain basement monthly service price?

How about a discount on new phones for existing customers?

If I want a new phone, staying with your existing carrier is a non-starter - go to a competitor. There is no reason to stay, even though I'm willing to pay the same price and make exactly the same revenue commitment on a month-to-month plan as a "new" customer would. What's the logic in that? Other than that, *some* of *my* money has to be subsidizing the new freeloaders.

Plan pricing isn't different enough to move the needle any more. MVNO pricing is $25/mo all and essentially no difference for the average consumer - effectively unlimited phone, texts, data. Data plans and rates are now big and fast enough to be a non-issue for most users. The market has said 2GB/mo before throttling is "good enough".
