I realize this was posted awhile ago, but I had to clarify that this is in no way a ripoff if you use it right. My wife and I have regular service elsewhere, but we vacation a few times a year in places where our current service lacks coverage. This is a great way to supplement the network of another carrier when you only need the phone infrequently. It's not designed to be an every day plan...if you use it that way you are allowing yourself to be ripped off, AT&T is not ripping you off.
