    Default Will AT&T match prices?

    Does anyone know if AT&T is matching Sprint's price of 149.99 on a new 4S at their stores? Or do I need to go to Apple retail?

    Thanks for any help.

    One never knows until one tries... but, I doubt it.

    They are not known to match prices...Best Buy did a really great deal on the iPhone 4 at one point, and lots of people tried to get AT&T to match and were turned down (Apple did the same thing). If i remember correctly it was when Best Buy was first putting the iPhone into their mobile phone kiosks...

    The iPhone 4S is $125 at RadioShack, on Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. That would solve your problem.

    Thanks for the info so far, but I would really like to be able to do it at a store so that the charges can be applied to the next bill. It's a business use phone so this would save me a lot of hassle and paperwork. I intend to give it a shot sometime over the next few days.

    It never hurts to ask, however, going by AT&T's history I'm going to say I doubt they'll do it.

    Worst they can do is say, "no.".

    A company owned store can, at the managers discretion, match a price. A retailer will almost certainly not, they have to work off of cost and profits per handset and that would put them in the negative.
