Last year, after what felt like hours, I was able to get a Xr and 11 for $300 off each, with a 2 year "agreement". I paid the difference up front, and have no monthly payment for the phones

My wife preferred the Xr red vs the 11 Red (I like it more as well, its a "hotter" red.

We have had great service with ATT, for 20 some years. (and all the name changes)

Yeah, kinda hate all the mumbo jumbo -- we got 2 XRs when they first came out BOGO, so essentially $350 each. but full tax on each. and new line.

I clicked a link in a text I received from AT$T. We are a current customer. Clicking through the link showed I could upgrade to an 11 for $5 per month for the 256GB model. But I used the text a rep feature on their site:

>>>

Me : AT&T Free Msg: We've got an exclusive upgrade offer for you. Learn how to get a new iPhone 11 On Us! No trade-in required. That's up to $700 in savings just for being a current customer. Available online see att.com/UpgradeOnUS for details. Text STOP to end marketing messages.

Me : That is the text.

Andres V : You can go ahead and add the phone as an upgrade and get it for free and you will see the regular price on the cart summary, and the credit for the phone you will; get for freewill start within 2-3 billing cycles and retroactively.

Andres V : And it would be for the one that comes with 64GB

Me : Ok, but when I choose the xxx model it says $5/month. I prefer the xxx model

Andres V : Sure, with this one you would get it for $5/mo. And with xxx for $1/mo.

Me : Ok, so how much is my upgraded line going to cost?

Andres V : Is the phone you already have paid off?

Me : Yes.

Andres V : Then the upgrade would be for free and you would get the phone for $5/mo and on it you will pay the same price you are paying now for the services. The increase for the new phone would be of $5/mo.

Me : So, no change in my service plan except for the $5/month times 30 months?

Andres V : Yes, that's correct.

Me : Great! Nice deal!! Thanks, bye.

>>>

That was on June 9. My subsequent statement has not come. Those ‘xxx’ were for a 128GB for $1 and a 256Gb model for $5. I assume what I typed (128GB and 256GB) was changed to xxx so AT$T could screw me out of the discount. We shall see.

Interesting. On my end, I used your link to see the $5/month for the 256GB, but then when I logged into my account, it removed the discount -- because from the fine print, you have to add a new line to get the discount.

I decided the fine print was too fine so I used the text contact. I doubt if AT$T will stand behind the transcript given the xxx.
