Carrier [AT&T] Under contract, but eligible for Next. Is there an ETF if I "upgrade" early?

    I am still under a two-year contract with AT&T for my iPhone 5 that isn't up until the end of November (of this year), but the AT&T website says I'm currently eligible for a "Next" upgrade at $0 down.

    Does anyone know if I will incur an ETF or any other type of fee if I upgrade my line to the iPhone 6 via their Next program BEFORE my current iPhone 5 contract date is technically up?

    Thanks :)

    You will not. I'm in the same boat, but my contracts end next March.

    I think this is what MANY people will do... and Apple will sell a record amount of phones lol

    I bought my 5s last year, of course, but AT&T tells me that my two year contract ends on October 2nd of this year. Weird.

    No, but you will pay more for the phone. The cost of the subsidy recovery (to AT&T) is already built into your monthly fee. With Next, you will pay an additional amount on the running balance of the device.


    And rake in a record amount of extra profit on the double-dipping for equipment.
