It seems like taking more away from the customers is the way to go. According to this leaked document, AT&T will be changing the early upgrade pricing for the iPhone, and ” No Commitment Pricing” for all of their other smartphones and QMP devices, or as we call them feature phones. Wrapping it up to a few words, if you want to upgrade early or buy your device off a two year contract, it will cost you a bit more.
While this has not been confirmed by AT&T, beginning April 3rd, early upgrades for the iPhone will increase by $50.
- 8GB iPhone 3GS goes from $249 to $299
- 16GB iPhone 4 goes from $399 to $449
- 32GB iPhone 4 goes from $499 to $549
Additionally, the leaked document points to a one year and no commitment pricing change for all other smartphones – Blackberry, Android, etc. Sadly, the increase for a one year contract will be $150. For no commitment (meaning no contract), the price change will increase by $50.
Take a look at the document to see all of this information, as well as the price changes for feature phones. What do you think about this? Is this fair? Hit up the comments and let us know!
