    I still owe $500 on my 7+ with T-mobile, and I want to switch to AT&T along with my wife (her 6+ is paid off). My sister-in-law needs a new phone (also with T-mobile) & said she would pay the $500.

    What would be the best route to take? I know my wife and I could take advantage of the B1G1 with the switcher offer from AT&T so if I sold my sister-in-law my 7+, I couldn't take advantage of that. At the same time I am leaning towards a sim-free 8+ anyways.

    What do you guys think?

    Does AT&T B1G1F require trade in? I didn't think it does.

    I was looking at this one too. I don't see anything about trading in your current phone on that link.

    So if I only paid about $250 for my 7 plus (T-Mobile gave me gift cards to cover most of the phone during a promo) what would guys suggest? If my phone's signal was better I would be fine with it.

    My wife, even though she is fine with it, is sluggish at times. She might need a new one soon, so the B1G1 might be a good time to get it.

    Thanks

    Edit: My wife is set in her ways with certain things. She said she doesn't want a new phone.

    I think I see where I misunderstood. If you want AT&T to help "switch" (reimburse fees for switching carriers) they do require you to turn in your current phone. If you simply want the B1G1 DTV is required (not turning in current phone).
