→ AT&T’s Next phone upgrade plans are a huge ripoff | The Verge

Nilay Patel, writing on The Verge:

The big differences with AT&T’s Next plan are that it costs anywhere from $15 to $50 a month depending on which phone you buy, and also that it’s an absolutely clear ripoff designed to cheat customers into paying full price for their phone without actually buying anything.

Shocker.
