    Haha Bingbook. Great, I really don’t think I could ever buy a product called that. 
    Surely it would be called the Explorerbook though?

    Hey I heard mention of the att plan with 4 phones and 10gb of data for $160. It is important to realize that this is the no contract pricing. You do not get a subsidy for doing this. You must pay full price for your phone to get this deal. You can finance the phone or pay upfront.

    I am on the plan (5 lines now for 175) and 3 of the 5 are under contract.  They switched me over with no issue.  It is 100 dollars base + 15 dollars for each line.

    I hope ATT told you about the fine print when you switched to that. Check out their FAQ section. External

    Existing customers who were in contract prior to February 2, 2014 can get the discounted rate if they switch to a 10GB or higher value share plan. For these customers they are giving them the no contract pricing even though they are still in contract.

    If you sign a contract and subsidize a phone on any of these lines it will be a $25 increase from $15 to $40.

    Hey – enjoyed the podcast – nice mix of topics and news. And I learned something – at first I wasn’t excited about listening about cases but it was actually very informative.

      Ha ha! Thanks Rensul, I’m glad you liked it. It’s hard to get everyone excited about a case show but it’s a decision a lot of people go through. Thanks for listening and see you in the forums!
