    I am an AT&T customer and I'm currently on an iPhone 7 Plus. When i got this phone, i traded in my paid off iPhone 6 for $650 in credits over 30 months. No brainer in my opinion.

    I will soon be porting over my work number to my personal plan. That mean's a new activation.

    I see that AT&T has a BOGO that requires a DirecTV subscription. Not gonna happen.

    Does anyone know of any other deals or anticipate them releasing other deals once the phones are actually on the streets? I would jump on the BOGO if it didn't require the DirecTV.

    Thanks.

    They told me you can pay $30 and give them your old phone. Then you just keep making monthly device payment till the next cool comes out.

    It really is a shame. I was going to take advantage of the BOGO deal and add a line to my account but nope, not doing DirectTV. AT&T has been pushing DirectTV since they bought them. It is a little annoying.

    They are stuck on the DirecTV crap. There is nothing else they're offering for the BOGO deals that's not tied to DirecTV. Maybe if they get pressure from the other carriers. I signed up for Verizon service today because AT&T is now more expensive and service has really gone down. I've been having quite a few dropped calls.

    I had Directv long before AT&T bought them. My gripe, if I get an iPhone, is having to get another line. If an iPad counts, I can add my iPad 2.

    I totally agree with you. I was even thinking of switching to Verizon.

    I’m getting a $200 credit as university faculty when I upgrade. Believe it also applies to staff and students(?) but can’t remember. I have to go to an ATT store and show my ID.

    Hmm, how? I have an edu discount and a $200 credit would be great. I could turn in my old 7 Plus + $200 Credit = an extra phone for little to nothing.

    It came up under messages when I was logged in, both on the website and on the app. Call them if you don't see it. But I think it's only for an upgrade (I'm on ATT Next.)

    I just called ATT because we have the edu discount and the rep told me that they do have this $200 bill credit promo but is not for upgrades, you have to open a new line, port a number and purchase a smartphone on the Next program, then the $200 credit would apply in the next 2-3 billing cycles :(

    Give it a week or two. I bet something better will come up.
