    Does anyone know if its possible to go to an ATT store and pay off the remaining balance of an iPhone in store, or does it need to be done though the monthly bill? Thanks.

    You can payoff the entire balance at anytime. Just go into an AT&T store and they can accomplish this for you.

    If you only want to payoff the 12 or 18 month balance so you can trade in your phone for another phone using NEXT, you must wait 2 billing cycles.

    Thought about paying mine off early, but it doesn't save any money, so I'll just pay it off whenever I want to sell it for the next upgrade. Might as well keep the money and invest it now.

    I wanted to buy an unlocked Tmo version but since the apple site was down i went with NEXT. I decided i would pay for the phone outright which is why i plan to go to ATT and pay off as soon as i get it.

    Don't forget you can then get it unlocked by AT&T after you pay it off.

    That's why I invest in mutual funds and get at least around 8%.

    What about paying a partial amount? If I still owe 400 on one of my next, can I put 200 towards that balance and just owe 200, and get my monthly payment reduce?

    With the service charge the MM charges, trust me, you'r not getting anywhere near 8% return.

    I agree they are so confused. When I checked my account (ordered Next 12-month) I'm under contract till 05/2016. I wonder if they will 1) not unlock your phone until then, 2) try to charge you extra for their service even when the phone is paid off before the contract end date?

    What's the service charge and the MM charges? And how can you avoid them?

    Yes my experience is 2 billing cycles.

    I plan to pay off my IP6+ if I keep it once it is shipped to me. If not, I may not even open it and just give it right back to them and cancel my NEXT as I am currently off contract with both lines and using 2 contract free phones.

    I called AT&T today and they said you can pay it off anytime you wanted and no trade it in. After that my wife found a link on AT&T's website to pay it off also.
