    I recently upgrade to the iphone6 on the AT&T next plan. Would it be ok for me to jailbreak my phone seeing how I have to trade it in after 18 months

    Up to you if you want to JB it.
    The JB is purely software based and you can remove it at any time you want by restoring with itunes.
    You will not have any problems trading it in down the road as long as you bring it in on stock firmware.

    No, it is not okay.
    It is against the TOS that you agreed to when you got the phone.

    You should be ethical and honor agreements that you have made.

    For some people ethics don't matter.

    Strangely, many of those people complain about the lack of ethics on wall street or in business

    Go figure.

    Its his phone and he can do whatever he wants to it.
    And the Apple TOS has nothing to do with him trading the phone in with his AT&T carrier. As long as he brings it back on stock iOS version then there is no permanent changes done to it.
    Your wall street ethics nonsense or high horse comments that you put up are meaningless and with no basis to reality.

    You are wrong.
    He agreed to a TOS.
    He now wants to violate it.

    The ethical issues are real.
    Seems people are okay with ethical violations when it benefits them (jail break, file "sharing") but have a problem when Wall Street of business has ethical issues.

    Go figure.

    Here are my ethics...

    Jailbreaking the device isn't hurting me, Apple, or anyone involved.

    Wallstreet avoiding taxes, committing insider trading does.

    Go figure...

    Typical.
    Unethical people always have a rationalization for their unethical behavior.

    No surprise here.

    Show me where it says I can't jailbreak it in my contract with the Next program.

    https://m.att.com/shopmobile/wireless/modals/next-faqs.html

    How do I trade-in my AT&T Next smartphone to upgrade to a new smartphone?

    Once you've made 12 (if you have AT&T Next 12) or 18 (if you have AT&T Next 18) monthly installment payments on your AT&T Next installment agreement, you are eligible to trade in and upgrade your smartphone. Your trade-in must be in good physical condition and fully functional to qualify. This means:

    •It must power on and off.
    •The screen must be intact, free of any chips, and function properly.
    •The device must be free of breaks or cracks.
    •The battery must be included.
    •The activation lock has been disabled (for example, Find My iPhone).


    Welp, looks like he'd be just fine if they meet these requirements. Care to share where your BS requirements are?

    Looks like you don't understand the difference between adhering to a TOS agreement and whether or not violating a TOS is an illegal vs. an unethical act, not so smarty for you.

    ----------

    Go read Apple's TOS.
    I never said anything about AT&T Next.

    The original question wasn't about the TOS for Apples warranty, but about AT&T's TOS on trading the phone in. You did not add anything to the original discussion and went on something else entirely separate. Stay on topic and don't tell people how to use their phones.

    AT&T next is simply a payment plan. He is under no obligation to return the device, and can continue to pay on the phone until the payments are finished, or he can pay it off at any time. Jail breaking technically voids the warranty, but otherwise, there's no issue here. He can throw the phone in a river and he's not violating the Next TOS. He'll still have to pay it off, but otherwise it's his device, not AT&T's.

    His posts have no value or info added to the threads topic besides starting arguiments.
    He just goes off topic over some nonsense "ethical" TOS agreement and wall street garbage and some other BS that no one cares about.
    Nobody cares what he feels is unethical.
    We will use your devices any way we want to whether he likes it or not:D
    And since its perfectly legal nobody can do anything about it about my choice not to follow the TOS agreement.
