    I got the iPhone 6 plus when it came out and I enrolled in the next program the same day. Can I pre order through the apple website? If so, how do I go about trading in my iPhone?

    Yes. You should get a return label in the mail.

    you have to have cleared all your payments first, make sure that happened, i got mine within 1 min of being on sale but payment did not start tilll 2 months later. then if your clear just order it

    you trade it in because att sends a box with your new phone

    Check my thread, this is not the best option. Buy full price.

    Will it let me clear as part of checkout on Apple Store? I have a balance of $35 or can buy out the 6 for $370 or so and then sell it. But didn't clear that with ATT and their website down now

    It makes no sense to pay off the remaining months under Next (12/18/24 depending which Next you have) and then give them the phone back. It makes more sense to buy the phone out and sell it.

    Example: (my iphone 6 64gb)

    The phone is $749.99.

    On Next 18 and payments are 31.25/month for 24 payments. If you pay off 18 months (hence Next 18) you can upgrade. So you pay in 18 x $31.25=$562.50 and THEN give them the phone back too. WHY? You're getting ripped off, the full buyout is only $187.50 more!

    I can get $460 guaranteed for my iphone 6 64gb right now.

    I was halfway through with 12 payments left, or 12 x $31.25=$375 left as of today to pay off the phone fully.

    So I paid off $375 to go sell it for $460 in my pocket and made $95. Instead of paying them $187.50 today and giving the phone back losing $187.50.

    You lose over $90 paying off the Next period and giving them the phone back.

    I get that and agree it's better to buy the phone. My question is if it will give me that option when going through the checkout process

    Yes I've done the mock preorder... Unless it changes.

    I'm trying to check my upgrade availability but every time I click on it, it sends me to a page with a countdown to pre order online.

    I currently owe $382 for my iPhone 6 plus. You think I can sell my iPhone 6 plus for more than that on Craigslist? If so, I would just go through the apple upgrade program and sell my iPhone 6 plus and pay the remaining balance that I owe att. Does that sound right?

    It's too late now. But once they go back online at 12:01 you will have full access.
