    Lets get this out in the open: I DONT TRUST AT&T!!!

    I would like to pre ordere with Next and would prefer to use Apple.com over ATT.com because I would actually like to receive my device on the 19th.

    I saw this article a while back and it said Apple would be offering carrier financing in Apple stores for new devices.

    http://9to5mac.com/2014/08/12/apple...ng-iphones-via-carrier-financing-on-aug-20th/

    I also talked to ATT local store and they said Apple retail store should offer next as long as Im not currently in a next program on the lines I will be upgrading.

    Anyone have any specific info regarding this?

    Try upgrading to a 5S on Apple.com and select a Next plan. Do you get an error message?

    If you go to the Apple store website and view the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus options, it does show information about "carrier financing" and "AT&T Next":

    why do you need to "confirm?" It's right there in black and white one the website.

    We have 5 iPhones on a mobile shared plan of 15 GB. I bought the 5S last October.

    If i select Next 12, nothing will change in regards to my shared plan right? I don't know this because i was thinking of buying contract free but don't want to risk it not being unlocked.

    Pretty sure the only thing that changes is that you would get billed extra $ a month for the iPhone you purchase. Think it ranges from $27-$50 or somewhere around that.

    Yes, that is correct. ATT said that to me tonight as well. I will still preorder with Apple tonight though. Lol.

    Why does it matter to ATT about where you purchase the NEXT phone from?

    It doesn't matter to them, I am just stating that I will preorder on Apple even if ATT is doing the same thing.
