Joining the league of other wireless operators like T-Mobile and Verizon, AT&T is also putting an end to its long-going two –year phone contract scheme. From January 8, people will not be able to get a cellphone using this scheme.
Instead, AT&T is starting two new schemes as per which a person can buy the phone by paying the full price upfront or in installments over time. The decision will be applicable on all the phones even flip phones and non-smartphones with keyboards. But the scheme will remain open for business contracts.
