I owe $434 on my iPhone 7 Plus. I’m eligible to upgrade. With that said, I don’t want to upgrade. I want to receive my iPhone X when I get it then pay off my iPhone 7 and unlock it and sell it. With that said, will I still be able to get the iPhone X through the Apple app under att without replacing my iPhone 7 because it’s not paid? If It does let me, will it be a new line or can I keep my current one?

I’m eligible to upgrade now. I still have the remaining balance though. But I’d rather keep the phone and sell it. Can I just upgrade as in I was trading in the phone but pay it off in like a few days from now and not trade it in?

You can either trade it in, or pay off balance.

You can upgrade to the iPhone X tonight, and then once you receive the iPhone X you have 14 days to return the iPhone 7 Plus to AT&T or they will add that $434.00 to your next bill. So yes, you should be able to do what you want.

I may be crazy here but I think you should pay off your phone before getting a new phone
