ATT Switch Over promotion teaser 001

The United States wireless carrier AT&T on Monday launched a new promotion that entices people with up to $650 in credit per line to leave their carrier and switch over to the AT&T service.

You will have to trade in your existing smartphone and port your number over from Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile in order to be eligible for this promotion.

After sending in the final wireless bill from your old carrier, you will then purchase a new phone from AT&T Next and receive a Visa prepaid card with up to $650.

The Visa card is in the amount of the early termination fee or device balance owed on your final bill minus your trade-in value, up to $650 per line.

New and existing AT&T customers who have or add for DIRECTV or AT&T U-verse TV service can get the carrier’s new plan that includes unlimited data, talk and text for $100 per month per line, with a $40 per month fee for each additional device. A fourth smartphone can be added for free after bill credits.

In addition to this promotion, the carrier is currently running a Buy One, Get One deal that offers both existing and new customers their second phone at no charge provided both phones are purchased on AT&T Next, with the first phone being a new line or an upgrade and the second phone a new line and purchased on AT&T Next 24.

Anyone switching to AT&T?

    That’s good but they are slow at uncongesting their towers. I would rather get tmobile speeds. And…they throttle…

    • Steven Honey

      T-mobile “throttles” too. if you are on a congested cell tower, like i am and you use over 15-20 gigs, you will be throttled.

      AT&T’s throttling is the reason i left att 2 years ago, but now they raised their throttling up to 22gb., so they are about the same as T-mobile as far as throttling. I can vouch for that. My wife couldn’t stand T-mobile the first week we switched, so she switched back to ATT. so we have had both services the past 2 years and she hasn’t been throttled since ATT upped the “unlimited” plan to 22gb.

      Besides, whats the difference in throttling or no service? If you don’t have any service, there isn’t anything to throttle.

      • 9to5Slavery

        Yes I know Tmobile throttles too

      • Antzboogie

        T-Mobile hasn’t throttled me but Im sure they have. I would choose TMobile though their cheaper and have better plans.

      • Steven Honey

        T-Mobile doesn’t like calling it “throttling”. It only happens when you are on a congested cell tower. So, if you are experiencing slow speeds on the tower you would normally be connected to while at home, when you leave and are connected to a seperate tower at work, then you may have normal speeds. They say you will only experience slow speeds if you are on a congested tower and you are near the top percentage of usage of folks on that tower. Idk, they say it’s not throttling, but my speeds were slowed when I hit around 15-20gb… Sounds like they let their foot off the petal to me. Lol. This happened several times in the 2 years I had T-mobile.

      Not sure what you’re talking about. My family and I have a 20GB plan and we never hit the 20GB limit…plus we’ve never been throttled lol.

      • 9to5Slavery

        Then you probably don’t know what I’m talking about .

    and you can get an iPad mini 4 wifi+cellular for $100.00. $10.00 a month for 1gig a month, or $40.00 a month for “unlimited” data on the iPad mini.

  • Steven Honey

    i just switched from T-mobile yesterday. Not because of this new deal, but because i can’t stand the spotty coverage anymore and then when i call about it, i just get lies instead of them just telling me the truth. Paid the remaining balance off on 3 phones so i can use them with ATT. After paying about $900.00 they tell me i have to call and it will take 2 days. lol. WHY DOES IT TAKE 2 DAYS TO SEND AN EMAIL WITH AN UNLOCK CODE?

    • Antzboogie

      TMobile is getting better and better. AT&T has garbage plans. They would throttle you quicker then TMobile would thats facts.

  • iPhoneWINS

    lol … ATT hates me cause every month they say “you have use 16 giggs of your 22 gigs… go over 22 and we will throttle you “

    • Morgan Freeman

      What makes you think they hate you for that?

  • Manuel Molina

    Are they stupid? Do they believe that sprint and T-Mobile users are going to want to go from unlimited everything to limited data and more money?

  • Tom

    att sucks bad they dont offer decent prepaid plans like metro pcs they should at least give higher 2g speeds for 50 128 is really slow we need at least 312kpb
