I see a lot of discussion about the new upgrade programs but nothing about keeping two year contracts. I am thinking about keeping my two year contract on AT&T for two phones on my account. It seems this is not an option if I preorder through Apple's website, only AT&T website. I will be upgrading two iPhones to the 6s+ 64GB, with the two year contract on AT&T it will be $800 for both phones not including tax and upgrade fees. The phones will not be unlocked and will not have Apple care, however the phones will be mine in two years and I only paid $800 for two new iPhones. After two years I can unlock both phones to increase resale value, which is what I did with my current 5s. My question is....doesn't this sound better than paying a monthly premium for Apple's new program or AT&T NEXT program? I have been on the "s" series of iPhones for many years so I don't care about upgrading each year. With that said....after my two year contract is up I would've only paid $800 for TWO iPhones, rather than $1600 with the AT&T NEXT program or Apple's new program. What is the benefit of ditching my two year contract with AT&T other than the ability to upgrade each year and having AppleCare.
