AT&T has added a new monthly fee for all users that will earn the company millions of dollars. It isn't much, requiring subscribers to pay an additional $0.61 per month for what they're calling a "Mobility Administration Fee." Nickels and dimes folks, nickels and dimes.

$30 upgrade fee for those looking to upgrade their smartphone. While I'm not a fan of the fee and don't like it one bit myself, it isn't as bad as it sounds and won't be going away either. I'll tell you why below.
Verizon phone after April 22nd? Then plan to spend a little more money: Verizon announced that they're adding a $30 "upgrade fee" for existing customers who want to get a new phone and renew their two-year contract. The fee will be enacted on all returning customers in two weeks, though you apparently won't have to pay it... if you pony up for an unsubsidized phone. For several hundred dollars more, on phones that are already considerably more expensive than their counterparts on other networks. Hooray.
Samsung Galaxy Note. Starting this Sunday the 12th AT&T will be doubling the handset upgrade fee from $18 dollars to $36. This wont effect customers on a daily basis, but is double what users have paid all year thus far.
$2 convenience fee has caught the FCC's attention and they are now looking into the new plan and hopefully will report back.
