The company’s postpaid wireless service is provided under two alternatives, for subscribers who purchase their equipment under the traditional device subsidy model, service contracts are for two year periods with an increasing portion of these subscribers receiving unlimited voice and texting services in conjunction with data services purchased through its Mobile Share Value plans; and for subscribers purchasing a device on installments under the AT&T Next program, no annual service contract is signed but the device must be paid in full if the customer chooses to drop their service from AT&T. The company’s prepaid service is provided to certain customers who prefer to pay in advance.
