They said it's capped at 3GB, which is laughable and maybe my daily use right now. I used to have 20, might move to T-MOBILE to get unlimited now.

don't know, because 150*2 = 300 ?

Wait so you can do a one time $480 write off?

I was looking tonight. How much data is reasonable? Right now I have unmited.

Unlimited

Isn't 3gb like nothing?

Nothing is capped at anything. They based the reimbursement on 3GB. $45 if you don't have phone installment, $65 if you do, so if you compare 2 year contract vs installment billing, the difference is where the $480 comes from. $45 for service though is laughable.

So now the incentive is to upgrade often?

Hey I have an ASC840 accounting question on this scenario - a target sold an asset 10 years ago for 10,000,000 and immediately leased it back.

Since this deal is cash free debt free shouldn’t we treat this as a debt like item? They received the cash in a prior period but we are now stuck with the payments. Debating how to quantify the adjstmnt
