    I currently have the iPhone 4 on AT&T. The contract started three days after the iPhone 4 was officially released in the US and lasts for 2 years.

    If I wish to upgrade to the iPhone 5 (on AT&T), how much will I have to pay in early termination fees?

    Would it be possible just to upgrade the phone to the iPhone 5 and keep my current plan/account without paying exorbitant ETFs?

    In short, no. It will more than likely not be possible to get a subsidized price, I have heard that if you pay more than $100 monthly u get a yearly upgrades.

    The $99 rule no longer applies. ATT now requires any line primary or secondary lines to wait at least 20 months until their next full subsidy upgrade.

    They just made this change within last couple of months.

    ETF $325, Minus $10 for every month that you have paid your bill in full.

    Current prices (subject to change with the next iPhone):

    (16GB/32GB)
    • Upgrade: $199/$299
    • Early Upgrade: $299/$399
    • No Commitment: $499/$599


    Yes. Once Apple/AT&T announce the purchasing and qualifying details of the next iPhone, if your upgrade date does not move up to coincide with the release of the next iPhone, then your next option would be an early upgrade fee.
