    I had my own single-line plan on T-Mobile with my 5S on their Jump program. I paid off my ETF and went to AT&T because T-Mobile's service is TERRIBLE where I live.

    I want to pre-order the 6 Plus tomorrow, but on AT&T's website it says I'm not eligible for an upgrade until October 12th? What gives? I thought I could upgrade at anytime if I have no contract.

    I'm thinking of buying the phone off-contract anyway, but where can I pre-order an unlocked one for use on AT&T?

    Maybe its a mistake if you didn't buy your current phone on contract. Call them, VZW messed up my upgrade date, stuff happens.

    You'll not be able to pre-order or buy a phone full price (At least through apple) initially. They generally hold off those types of transactions until November.

    If the October date isn't a mistake, just way. Another month won't kill you.

    if you brought your own device there is a 6 month wait before you can upgrade.

    Really, I did not know that. That's good to know, because one option I had was that I was going to bring my iPhone 5c to ATT and then maybe get the 6 but if I have to wait 6 months I may sell the 5c instead.

    I think with AT&T it's about 2 months after launch ... I was going to do that until I found out about the delay ... Now I'm going with ATT Next and may pay it off by the month or pay the whole thing off in 2 months
