    There is an activation fee $36, but depending on your credit history there is also going to be a deposit, and you will also have to pay the first months rental voice minutes plus data (which is required).

    Why don't you go to the AT&T website and go through the process to see what your costs would be like.

    Yes sting7k is correct there is a $18 fee for all upgrades , but what you can do is talk to you sale Rep and the might waive the fee . If you buy from Best Buy the can waive the fee easier .

    1. The AT&T site seems well designed to tell me what they want me to know. Less well designed to tell me what I need to know.

    2. An "activation fee" on the only possible carrier is part of the price of the phone and should be so styled. This is a special problem with the iPhone and AT&T. However, complex pricing is a problem throughout the industty. It seems to be worse on AT&T and Verizon because of their Ma Bell heritage. Sprint, T-Mo, and the boutiques at least seem to understand that it is a problem.
