    My iPhone 6 Plus is now paid off which means I should be able to trade it in and get some sort of value for it to put toward the cost of a new iPhone 7 plus. How the heck is that done if you pre-order online, do you take it to the store after the fact? Also any idea what ATT would give you as credit for an iphone 6 plus 64GB in great condition?

    They will give you a store credit type card, use it towards the phone bill or accessories.

    I was messing about with my ATT account; I could upgrade if I pay the next installments still due on my plan (a 20 month, but I started in Oct 2015). ATT's site ran through some basic questions like "does it start?" and "does it have a battery?' and then indicated I'd get a prepaid mailer for it.

    But I'm on the upgrade plan; I assume that if you're just trying to trade in an old phone you'll likely get less; right nw Apple says $250 for I think a 6s+/

    If it's paid off, that would mean that you're no longer on Next, as you've fulfilled the terms for Next. You'll get trade-in value for it, but you'll need to look at the Trade-in program for that, not Next.

    Why would you trade it in they won't give you much for it, sell it on Craigslist or eBay you can get a lot more for it...

    I aint got time for that, ATT gives you $210 toward the phone.
    Thx yeah i get that. Im just curious as to how to do that seamlessly. ATT will give me $210 for my phone, just not sure how quickly i would get the credit, or if I can maybe apply the credit after preorder or even two months down the road.

    $210? That's it? You can sell it easily for $500 on Craigslist, for double the profit I'm pretty sure it's worth your time...
