AT&T Doubling Its Upgrade Fee to $36 on February 12th

What do you do after reporting "blow-out" earnings and instituting larger, pricier, data plans? If you're AT&T, why not go for the jugular by doubling upgrade fees? That's exactly what Ma Bell plans to do come February 12th, upping the existing $18 fee to a new high of $36. That might sound familiar, as it's much in the same vein as cross-town rival Sprint, who went through the same kerfuffle back in September.

" This fee isn't unique to AT&T and this is the first time we're changing it in nearly 10 years".
