As was stated, it usually is not until the new iPhones have been announced that current users of the NEXT plan can check their plan status and the possibility of being able to swap their iPhone for the newest model. Twelve months (or, eleven, maybe) of payments are what is necessary for eligibility. My particular way of handling this is to totally pay off my current iPhone a month or so prior to the announcement of the new ones so that I then have flexibility in moving forward with purchasing a new iPhone at either an Apple store or AT&T, usually trading in my current one and then beginning a new AT&T NEXT program at that time. This year I am thinking of keeping my iPhone X rather than trading it in, haven’t decided for sure yet, but at any rate will be paying it off soon so that my options are open.

What this number actually shows is how much you still owe on your current phone in order to upgrade. For instance I have one payment left which will be paid before the new phones come out so I can either pay off early to get out of the program and switch to the Apple program, or stay with AT&T.

To me it partially comes down to under which program I can get the new phone first. I am planning to upgrade to the 6.5” iPhone (what ever they call it) as I my old eyes like the largest screen I can get. For this reason last year I had a really hard time deciding between the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X. I went with the X and have not really regretted it, but this year I definitely want to get the biggest I can get.

anybody has experience with next 24 if you payed more than 12 months/50%? does it reduces the monthly payment of your next phone compared to a brand new att next phone with no trade in?

NOPE! You lose the extra payment... This happened with me last year because the the assisnine way they billed. I actually had to pay a month to get hubby up to the 12 months but my phone they charged me for another month after I had already ordered my X.... I called and called and called to no avail... I ended up "losing" one months payment to the crooks!


[doublepost=1536783502][/doublepost]And you're not checking EARLY upgrade... you are checking to see if you are eligible or not and if you aren't, how much you have to pay to turn in your phone. There is no "early". If you turn it in before making the 12 payments... you will pay the difference until you've given them their 12 payments.

or lose a payment. I was pissed and just paid the phone off but it took me FOREVER to sell it. I ended up selling it for slightly less than half... so I might as well have just turned it in and "lost" the month last year.

I might as well just trade my X now instead of trying to sell for 1/2 what I payed next year... does the apple upgrade program works the same way?

Last year, the new phone wasn’t released until late October, so most people had to make an extra payment. Hopefully Apple can stick to the September time frame every year going forward.

since I bought late november, will wait all the rush to be over and upgrade once they are available for same day pick up, by the time I might need 1 or no extra payment to be 50% on my X

Last year, because of the later release of the X and the extra payment, it was better to keep your old phone and sell it yourself, then just pay AT&T the balance due. It won’t be the same this year, in fact we are behind a payment to reach the 12 month mark.
