    I wish there was a way for me to get this deal. I left AT&T for Verizon 6 months ago, came back after being with Verizon for 3 months. AT&T acts like I am a new account now even though I was with them for 15 years. :(

    I have an iPhone 8 plus, two iPhone 7s, and one SE. All the phones except the SE are on NEXT. I don't want to pay another line for an X. Is there any options I have to get the X without having to pay $400-500 for any of those 3 phones to trade in? It would be nice to have the X honestly....but it's not a rush.

    Price protection has to do with matching an advertised price. This was not advertised. The people who received discounts did so because the loyalty division wanted to retain the business of high-impact / long-term subscribers. I was considering going to a different carrier for my two sons' iPhone's. To retain the business of my entire family on the Unlimited Plus program they offered me a one-time discount on the hardware.

    Go back to the very first 3 pages of this thread, it's all there.

    Actually if someone can hook me up with a screen shot I will have no problem doing a price protection claim :) Shoot me a pm and I will reward you for your effort

    i got an 8 plus from the loyalty department and i tried to list it in swappa but its coming back as financed. I think we are stuck with the phone for 2 years. Unless i break contract and pay ETF.

    Or you could sell on Craigslist and be clear about the situation

    I sold a still on contract 6s plus locked to att no problem right before 7plus came out locally for like $480 or something if memory serves me right

    The point i was trying to make is that why list the phone as financed therefore preventing us from selling it! technically we own the phone since its a two year contract on service and not device. Its not lease or NEXT..

    The discount on the hardware is provided to keep the owner in the ATT ecosystem. That’s what the Loyalty division exists for.

    Use this link to verify instead of listing it on Swappa.

    Yep, but also keeps you from upgrading too or you have to pay full price for the phone due to that 2 year contract.

    I'm a 10 year AT&T customer. I tried to get them to change my X to $549.00 w/2 yr contract via chat with loyalty dept instead of Next Every Year. Nothing. Called them, asked to speak to loyalty department, nothing changed. None of them had even heard of this offer.

    Also loyalty and retention are the same departments. This was confirmed via several AT&T employees I dealt with via chat and phone.

    “Change your x”?

    You probably can’t change an already ordered phone to contract

    It was worth trying. Plus the people in loyalty all said that the offer I was quoting was something they had never heard of. If they were willing to acknowledge the offer then maybe I had a chance of switching.

    I'm an idiot. I didn't realize your line access fee goes up $20 with this deal. So that makes no sense for me.

    Depends on your plan

    Unlimited plus unaffected

    Grandfathered unlimited or others, yeah it might not be wise

    Oh dang

    Not familiar with that plan but that’s unfortunate

    I think unlimited choice is the lesser unlimited plus with throttled video and stuff

    Yes it's much cheaper than Unlimited Plus. Hence why the increased line access fee if I sign a contract.

    it only makes sense if your plan is unlimited. if you're on mobile share you will end up paying additional $20 a month for a discounted phone! so at the end of the day you're not saving anything ;)

    Unlimited plus has the speeds and tether
