Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. Looks great but the lady in AT&T store said that I forgot to add First month of contract + Activation fee = which is around another $150. This probably destroys your article title, right?

    • I was about to say that. lmao. Carriers are billing “Current” so you have to pay everything up front. You break even or you lose money.

      Hmm. That’s a good point. But (on AT&T) at $250 (iphone 5 with tax) + 325 (ETF) + $36 (activation fee) + $70 (first month), you’re still at $681. So it’s still cheaper, but you make a good point. If you can negate tax from the purchase then you’re at $631. I suppose that’s only $20 cheaper than the iPhone 5, but cheaper nonetheless. I wonder if they prorate the first months bill after 14 days. If they charge for a full month’s service then the ETF should be $315 for one month’s service.
