(AT&T) My iPad 3 LTE qualifies for...a...full upgrade?

I was managing my AT&T account online when I decided to check my upgrade eligibility (I've been debating ditching my iPhone 5 for a Galaxy Note II) and I, kind of as a har-har, checked the eligibility on the iPad.

And I qualify for a full upgrade!

What the hell? Is this normal my fellow AT&T users?


I would capitalize on this but:

1. I worry about them catching on and manually adjusting the price.
2. Be obligating my iPad to some higher-than-$10-a-month plan.

You can now sign a contract with AT&T and get $100 off the iPad.

any device with a cellular connection gets assigned a phone #. That number can be used for an upgrade to get something like a new iPhone subsidized. Wont affect the iPad at all.

You can use your iPad eligibility to upgrade your phone at the fully subsidized price. It's called a Cross Upgrade.

My only concern is: Will I be effectively be signing another 2 yr contract?


As in I'll have to pay the $10 on my Mobile Share plan for tablets for two years?

Or is this just AT&T saying "Hey come get a subsidized phone bro!"?

Yes, you will be signing a two year contract for the number associated with the iPad line that used the upgrade.

Alright, thanks. Not interested in that.

Say you use the iPad line to upgrade to an iPhone 5 for another line (upgrade swap), do you still get to keep the iPad line data only + 2yr contract?

I did this last year for the 4S and had no issues.
