Why do I have to pay an upgrade fee AT&T?

How do you avoid upgrade fees?
Finance the phone and pay it. Customers are still charged for the upgrade fee if they purchase a new phone at the full retail price from Verizon Wireless. The only way to avoid the upgrade fee completely is to purchase the phone from the manufacturer directly.
