    Hey Cowboy..

    I'm currently on an AT&T plan with 2 lines until November...

    I want to get the 5C and 5S at their discounted rate with 2 year contract.

    Will AT&T allow me to add 2 additional lines so I can get both, then cancel both lines after a month and pay the ETF and other associated fees?

    I'd figure I'd save almost $200 doing it that way versus paying full retail for them, but wondering if its a hassle
    Here is the break down for you can make your own decision (I am going to guess your buying the 16GB model for this example)

    iPhone 5C- $99 on two year+ $36 activation fee + $35 Ruffly with take for 1 month of service+ ETF 325= $495+taxes if you live in a place that charges sales tax + what you pay already for your monthly service for your current 2 lines

    iPhone 5s- $199 on two year+ $36 activation fee + $35 Ruffly with take for 1 month of service+ ETF 325= $595+taxes if you live in a place that charges sales tax + what you pay already for your monthly service for your current 2 lines

    So you may or may not save alittle bit of money like $50 bucks so if its worth the headache go for it. Personally I'd A) either wait B) do an early upgrade making the phone upgrade price+ $250 you pay more upfront but save in the long run and you dont have the headache and fees that comes along with adding a line. Your going to have proration most likely so add another few bucks on top of what i just said if you add a line.


    On a side note if some one wants to lend me $325 so i can get a 32GB 5s ill pay them back by the following week when i sell my 5 i just cant be with out a phone since I am currently looking for a job and i sold all my extras

    Really loving the night time temps now, in the low 80's and 70's. Can actually sit out on the pool deck and enjoy. Thinking about getting a new Smart TV for outside, not sure why. Just think it would be sweet.

    I am going to switch to T-Mobile. My contract ends in November, so I'd figure I'd add 2 additional lines to get the discounted price, wait a month to cancel the contract on the 5C and 5S and keep the phones, then once November rolls around, I won't renew my contract on the 2 current lines and switch to T-Mobile
