so I should just switch phone company to avoid so called "Upgrade fee"?  I am loyal to "Apple" not "Verizon".

Verizon upgrade fee $30

AT&T $38 activation fee

Sprint $36 activation fee.

T-Mobile $38 activation fee.

So you either pay the upgrade fee, activation fee at other carriers.

Or pay $800 full price for the iPhone

That's right because you just make the choice easier now.  Regardless I switch or NOT now I have to pay someone some kind of fee, so why not choose a company they will treat me right like a customer.  In 2 years, I have to pay thousands of dollars, so between 30 to 38 dollars, not much different.

Avoiding a upgrade fee seems like a strange reason to leave a company... Especially if their service has served you well.

Sprint has terrible service, T-Mobile not much better. AT&T is almost equal to Verizon. You are not looking at $8 in difference. You have to pay hundreds for new phones, and get worst customer service.

Good Luck at whom ever you go to.

I certainly agree with this statement. Obviously there must be ADDITIONAL reasons you are making the switch and it is NOT the upgrade fee if you are going to be moving to another company with LARGER upgrade/activation fees.

Regardless, you should go with the provider which best suits your needs.Smiley Happy
