AT&T is no longer offering a $450 credit to lure customers from T-Mobile, according to a Re/code report.

The company had been using the strategy to leapfrog T-Mobile's own promotion to attract customers by offering to pay their contract termination charges.

T-Mobile advertised its own offer during the Super Bowl with an ad featuring Tim Tebow.
