What they say in this ad:
(AT&T Supervisor): Can I help you?
(Verizon guy wearing sunglasses): Hey, is it true we can get 4 lines, unlimited talk and text, and 10 gigs of data to share for $160 a month?
(AT&T Supervisor): Yep! AT&T’s new Family Pricing
(Verizon girl wearing vest): That’s a hundred bucks cheaper than us
(AT&T girl): Are you guys with Verizon?
(Verizon girl wearing sunglasses): What makes you think that?
(AT&T supervisor): Oh, just. Her name-tag, and I see you guys at the food-court every day.
(Verizon guy wearing red-sunvisor): Can we go back now?

What the fine print says
Just before the end of the commercial the following fine-print is shown for approximately 7 seconds:
Compares 4 smartphone lines on AT&T Mobile Share Value w/no annual contracts to Verizon Share Everything. Other charges & restrictions apply. Visit att.com/mobilesharesavings for details.
Claims and what they mean:
- What the commercial said: get 4 lines, unlimited talk and text, and 10 gigs of data to share for $160 a month / 10 gigs of data to share, unlimited talk and text and 4 lines for $160 a month / That’s a hundred bucks cheaper than [Verizon]
- What some people might think that means: I can get these services for only $160 per month and that is $100 less than anything that Verizon offers.
- What it really means: As disclosed in the fine-print, these prices are comparing the AT&T Family Pricing Plan to the specific, Verizon Share Everything plan. The fine print also specifies that to learn about the “other charges” and restrictions, we must visit the ATT.com website.
Some people may find the details in the fine print, and the need to go to the ATT.com website to learn about the actual charges and fees to be slightly deceptive in nature.
