I have a really good, grandfather family plan which cannot be beat by other carriers. Since I did not want to switch to Sprint or Verizon, I figured I would lock in my plan for 2 more years. If the merger goes through and AT&T does not honor my plan, I can always get out of my contract. If they do honor it, I have my great rate for at least 2 more years. When I called in to ask about my contract end dates, I was asked why and said I was thinking of taking my out of contract lines somewhere else. I told them I was due for an upgrade but didn't necessarily want to commit because of the pending AT&T buyout. Without asking for anything, I was then offered the following deal: a $180 dollar credit for renewing my 5 lines and another $250 credit toward the purchase of any phone. I ordered the GS2 and, in addition, I was allowed to also submit the $50 rebate. End result, I already have a $430 credit on my account and a new GS2 on the way with a $50 rebate to submit. In my opinion, not a bad deal.
