ATT: 325 + 10/day = 625 per monthish
Verizon: 775 first month, 500 each month after

Bottom line: it's cheaper to spy on an ATT customer in the short-hand, but more expensive in the long-run.

One time $325 activation fee for AT&T.  Then it's about $300/month after that.  In the long run (and the short run) Verizon costs more.

/you teach math?


Yes, but I never claimed waking up early was my strong suit. How I long for that "delete stupid post" button that doesn't exist.

/point is, it's still a fun question for my little darlings

OscarTamerz: I think for my $775 I should get free unlimited G4 mobile wireless from those stingy bastards at Verizon. Plus the NSA guys would get to watch the video I download too so it would be win-win.


Then they would be perverts too!

So we're borrowing money from China in order to finance spying on Americans.

Sounds about right.

MurphyMurphy: Subby, technically... that's still charging ME.

In which case, they're charging ME.
