It's getting ugly out there. AT&T is looking to move customers into their Next plan which lets users get new phones every 12, 18, or 24 months, but they pay full price for their phones, spread out over 12 or 24 months. The older contract model let users get new phones every two years, and pay a subsidized fee for their smartphone. That means a phone Apple would normally charge $500 to $700 might sell for $300 or less.
