I was dubious too, so I was quite careful to read the fine print. This was the only place I found where I was able to order the least expensive voice plan and $15 data plan. Here is what the website says:
AmazonWireless Instant Discount Policy
When you purchase your device with service from AmazonWireless.com, we automatically pass along an instant discount from the carrier to you. This discount has been provided to you based on your agreement to (a) activate a new, or extend an existing, line of service for this device with the carrier, and (b) maintain this service in good standing for a minimum of 181 consecutive days. If you do not activate or extend a line of service in connection with this device, or if your service is canceled/disconnected before 181 consecutive days, AmazonWireless.com will charge you $250 per device, plus applicable taxes.
In my case, I have not made any changes to my service. ATT appears to be providing my Premier discount. We shall see. Even if it were that I could not get the discount, 6 months of the discount in addition to the $99 would still be less than the $199. AmazonWireless only asked me for my ATT account number and then worked it with ATT from there.
