AT&T's Next plan doesn't add up

Customers pay more for a phone with AT&T's no-contract option, abandoned Yahoo IDs are up for grabs, and Foursquare finds a new way to push advertisements.

CNET Update does the math:

In this episode of Update:

- Learn why AT&T Next, a no-contract early-upgrade option, is a costly way to upgrade a phone , and you'll be better off sticking with a contract. Next is not the same as T-Mobile's Jump upgrade plan , which also works as insurance for phone damage.

- Claim a new Yahoo ID now , as Yahoo is recycling abandoned usernames.

- Watch for Foursquare's new ads that appear after a check-in.
