    The only person putting out misinformation is you then arguing with everyone who tries to CORRECTLY explain the situation... Kinda like the argument over UPS with someone IN Alaska who actually worked for UPS.............. SMH! Anyway............... Back to the regularly scheduled attacks on...

    By being on a 2-year subsidized contract you are paying a higher monthly rate for the plan itself.. Generally you can get a phone on payments for less total per month than the subsidized plan. The reason again is that they charge you more per month for the actual plan when the phone is...

    Ah yes... I forgot about customs.. That's probably the main reason.

    UPS sure does have an odd transit system.. China --> Alaska --> Kentucky --> All the way back to California.... Kind of a waste if you ask me but hey, it's their dime and gas right? I think I'll pop into the hub in the afternoon. I assume I should be in and out by then as I expect lines when...

    I don't think they will care if you want to just take it home and do it yourself..

    Well..... You kinda missed the whole point of my original response post. There are numerous recently posted articles in reference to these 'free iPhone' and '$650 off deals' and all of them equate these offers to the 2-year subsidized contracts of old. They are very bad deals... We can play...

    That's NOT what I said..... I didn't say the actual cost of the device is higher if on payments, I said AT&T charges more for the monthly service plan if you are on a 2-year contract..... In many cases the 2-year contract is a terrible idea these days as you'd actually pay less WITH the phone...

    But AT&T charges more per month for the plan if you do the 2 year contract thing.. That's why I always just eat the price up front and pay in full for phones.. No contract and no payments is the best of both worlds.. Except for the intial damage of paying for the phone that is.. LOL

    Yerp... Mine is in Alaska, no shipping notice and my card was just charged after the hold fell off a few days ago.. I did change my delivery to pick it up at a hub instead so I'll probably pop in there sometime in the afternnon to avoid the early 'I want my phone right now' peeps..

    I wonder if I can cancel my release authorization and change it to pick up.. I'll wander over to UPS.com here in a few and take a gander.. That might be the better option for me.. Then again, I don't really care if the dude just leaves it at my door either.. The struggle is real!

    My UPS dude is all over the place. FedEx is almost always between 2-3 for me but not UPS... I've had the UPS guy show up as early as 10AM and as late as 9PM.. For me UPS is a dice roll and I don't plan on sitting home all day waiting on Friday...

    I should have done that then I could just pick it up whenever.. If not it will be a nice surprise to come home and see a package hanging out waiting for me.. :D
