    If I use the Next program can I pay off the phone in one lump sum on my first bill or do I actually have to pay over 12 or 18 months?

    When I signed up for next for my iPad mini . I asked this very question and yes you can. The lady told me I could pay it all off early if I wanted to

    I just talked to an AT&T rep, he said you can pay it off ofter two months. Other people have said that you can call and pay it off before then.

    Heard you can pay it off after 2 billing cycles.

    I plan to do this too. Plan to pay $300 on my 2nd installment. Some unexpected cash came thru :)

    Yes you can pay off early. I have until october 5th for my last NEXT payment on my iPhone 5s. But earlier today I physically went to the ATT store and called them and they said that there is an option on the website that ill be able to make the last $37.00 payment on that NEXT line at the same time that I'm ordering my iPhone 6 tonight. I even tried to upgrade to another iPhone 5s just to see if they were right and the option to pay off the $37.00 to upgrade was available. Good luck tonight!

    You can't change your monthly payment. You can, however, choose to pay it off in full.

    Yeah I know. But I'll eliminate tons of remaining installments in 1 shot.

    I think he meant you can either pay your regular monthly payment or pay it ALL off in one shot.

    At the day you pay it in full, you can also unlock it since you're not on contract.

    What he meant was, you can't just add money here and there. You have 1 of 2 options. either 1. pay monthly payments or 2. Pay it off fully. You can't make 3months of payments here and 5 months of payments here. Its All or Nothing.

    Does this payment need to be done on the bill or can it be taken care of at an actual ATT store? - Looking to pay off the entire 6 plus balance at once.
