    Have several iphones with AT&T for family members (8, yes I know). Found out today could only update four with the AT&T installment plan, didn't know there was a limit and my account is in good standing, or so I thought. AT&T support chat was of no help....

    Upgrade the other 4 lines through Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program?

    What's the point of this? Limit liability in case the account if fraudulent and the phones go AWOL without payment?

    Assuming the cheapest option available, that's over $5000. Half that is $2500, they are loaning you $2500 with no credit check/ no guarantee that you will pay. <- Not an accusation, just saying look at it from their side.
    Yes.

    Ok, maybe they want to wait and see that they are delivered and activated, understand their being cautious.

    It's based on a combo credit, tenure, and payment history. People can be approved for up to 10 next on an account, currently.
