ok here is how it will work...you can either buy the phione at the 500+ price...or buy it and add it and switch to a family plan. you will stil get a discount on the phone with a family plan...we have one, and each phone is eleigible for upgrade at differnt times...plus each phones contract expries on different dates...the family plan is mainly to share minutes and such. and ATT got it first BECAUSE they are not cdma like vzw is..since the phone was alreadyg GMA formatted, then of course ATT would/could get it before..so its not that big of a deal!!! plus they would be stupid to not get it first casue they are getting really scared and intimidated because VZW is getting phones that are better than the iphone and that the iphone/apple is trying tog et out of their contract with ATT and go to other networks..and if/when that happens..ATT will lose a LOT of customers...
so basically either stop complaing and wining about the phone and go to ATT to get it now...or wait a week and get it for VZW and figure out a way to get the phoen cheaper..it would even be cheaper to cxl your current plan..then get the phone at the new plan price..and u will still save a few hundred $$(that is if you dont already have a smartphone since those contacts are a lot more to cxl)
My 'beef' with the AT&T N1 is that there was no word on it coming out this soon...plain and simple. All of the talk was about the N1 coming out for Verizon in the spring/March 23. Then, all of a sudden, on March 16th, Google puts out an AT&T N1. Im not sure if it was necessarily easier since they already had the GMA T-Mobile version. I would assume it requires a new antenna for the different frequency bands, but I could be wrong.
All we want here is the Verizon version...and we are still waiting.
Bought the AT&T N1.
I was talking to someone in a store, even though this is hard to believe, in short this is what she said " It would be just like buying a Droid or Droid Eris."
EXACTLY what a verizon employee told me over the phone today. I really think that's how it will be sold. He also said there should be no problem getting it on a family plan. They would treat it just like any other 3G phone they have.
I'm getting really excited, I just got my upgrade so I cannot wait for the N1 to release. It looks so sweet!
This has probably been asked a thousand times but forgive me for asking again, but I just became interested in getting an unlocked phone when VRZ releases the N1. So, is it true that if I do get the unlocked N1, can I still use the phone without getting the data plan? I saw something on an ATT link that said that I could used "wifi" with the unlocked phone? Not sure I quite understand that. So I guess I'm asking will I save money but not at the price of losing certain services with VRZ. In the long run that $30 data fee adds up. I'm appreciate any insight on this "unlocked phone" matter. Thanks
