    I have an iPhone 6 Plus and was actually thinking about upgrading to the new one. Currently on AT&T NEXT but paid phone in full already. I am attracted to the Apple Financing program because not only can you get a new iPhone every year, you get half the value of your iPhone when you trade it in at 12 months. Pretty good deal. Has anyone spoken to AT&T to find out how financing the phone through Apple affects your plan? I would assume it is no different than if you bring your own device from another carrier.

    If you paid your phone off then technically you're not on the Next plan. You own the phone outright. Just trade it in and get the new phone.

    It doesn't affect your plan at all. Financing it through Apple is completely separate from your carrier. You will have 2 different bills, so yes it's like bringing your own device. :)
