    I bought my iPhone 6 64 GB on ATT Next last year on release day. I still have $330 or so left to pay off. My question is would you pay the rest off so i can keep the phone or use another line's ATT Next upgrade then do the switch. I guess in the end it doesn't really matter but i was thinking of paying it off so I don't have to deal with going into the ATT store on launch day to do the sim switch or whatever.

    All up to you. For me I am waiting to see what trade in offers ATT does. Last year the $300 for my 5 16gb was great but not so great for the same $300 on my 5s 32 gb

    If you bought it only a year ago, how do you only have one installment left? Isn't it all spaced out over a couple of years?

    I believe you can trade it in after paying 50% so perhaps the member is confused of when he's allowed to trade it in, versus how much he has to pay on it.

    Could certainly be that. But the two things are fairly different (in one case you give up the phone while in the other you keep it), so hopefully that user figures out which one it really is.

    Yes, with ATT Next 12 you can trade it in after 12 installments or keep it after 20 or if you pay it off. I don't think it's worth trading in the my 6 so I'm leaning towards paying it off. I could use another lines upgrade but it's always annoying switching it on release day. However I think both should have the same type of sim so maybe just switching sims would be enough.

    The AT&T Rep I talked to today said we would be able to upgrade with the Next plan at any "authorized seller". I specifically ask through Apple.com. My 12 payment should be on 9/5 so I will be eligible for the order date. Now I am trying to decide to trade it in or pay it off and sell.

    Thank you for all your thoughts on this.

    You shouldn't owe $300. $300 is probably the amount to pay it off, but you should be eligible to trade it in. I work at AT&T. Did you do Next 12, 18, or 24?

    I got my 6 + on Next at launch last year and when checking upgrade eligibility, it said that in order to upgrade now, I only need to pay $47.45 and trade the phone in, or pay the remainder owed--$427.05--and keep the phone.

    Deleted. My question is asked elsewhere in the forum.

    Right, it would still require a trade-in if everything isn't paid off.
