U-verse Voice went from $35 to $25
U-verse 400 went from $99 to $59
Yahoo Broadband Elite went from $30 to $10
My bill went from $164 to $94 per month by just asking.
Another tactic: if you're a guy, tell them you're wife thinks you watch too much TV and the family has to save money so AT&T's gotta go.

Tell them Alan from 3Screens sent you.
