Leaked memo shows AT&T raising and adding fees for Next and BYOD subscribers on 8/1
According to the leaked memo, starting on August 1st AT&T will start charging a fee of $15 to new AT&T Next subscribers activating a just purchased smartphone with the carrier. The fee will also be charged to BYOD subscribers adding a new line of service. AT&T Next subscribers who have been signed up with the plan prior to August 1st will not be charged the fee on their next upgrade. Subsequent upgrades could result in the fee being applied.
And not that AT&T is going to be proud of this, but if the memo is legit, the carrier will have a more expensive upgrade fee than Verizon. With a rumored $5 hike, AT&T will allegedly be charging its customers $45 to upgrade to a new subsidized phone on contract. Verizon's upgrade fee remains at $40. If you have an AT&T upgrade burning a hole in your pocket, you might save yourself $5 by using it before the month changes.
