    Has it been confirmed that we can use the AT&T Next program with preorders tonight on apple.com?

    That's exactly what I'm doing too and when I go to the apple app, the option is there with the new iPhones so I don't see why it should be an issue with preordering.

    Good thread. I was just thinking about this. I think NEXT is a good choice for me.

    This seems odd, as Carrier financing is listed as an option directly from apple

    I'm just going to wake up at 3am and just try it. If no, then to the store I go!

    Does Next change you contract in any way. I have a friend who wnats to do it but he has the unlimited plan and does not want to loose it. I told him he would not.

    Right or wrong

    Next has nothing to do with contract plan terms...it simply is a lease for the device itself.

    Right. It doesn't change the contract. It's simply a 0% interest loan. That said, there's no benefit to using Next on older grandfathered plans.

    I'm seeing that NEXT can be used through the Apple Store App but near the end it states that NEXT orders are not available for in-store pick-up!
    Hmmmmm

    no in-store pickup

    .. that might be the only limitation ... maybe because ... they have a set number of phones for Next plan phones or something like that ... could be a tax variation from where you made the pre-order online to what store you chose ...

    My friend is not looking for any benefit for using Next, he just does not want to loose his unlimited data.

    Thanks

    right - you actually have to move to the next step AFTER you chose your device. Try it for the 5S. It forces you to pick the size (199, 299, etc..) color, then continue to next step, then the financing comes up, Next OR 2 year

    I am assuming this same behavior will occur for the 6

    I'm ordering mine with the next plan and this is what I'm seeing through the app right now. It seems fine to me. Just won't let me add to cart yet of course. image.jpg

    I heard that the Next program is not available in NY, Washington DC and Wyoming for some reason.

    If NYers can't preorder with Next on the Apple Store, can we do it on At&t's site?

    Confused. I can use the app to order the 5s. Why wouldn't it work for preorders? I'm in NY.

    Is it New York State or New York City that is limited? I think there is some confusion here as to what "New York" means.

    Not sure what the New York limitation is. Makes no sense. :confused:
