    Hi,

    I am on a 10GB Share Plan. I ordered the iPhone 6 Plus 64GB for $35/month. From what I know I would save about $200 if I do At&t Next 18.

    Would it be cheaper if I bought the iPhone 6 Plus unlocked or at full price? Would I save more on the access charge or is it the same? Is cheaper in the long run to buy the iPhone outright?

    Can't you just do the math based on your plan?

    I want to know if I save more money if just buy the phone outright. I think that the at&t next 18 (24 months) and unlocked are exactly the same unless I am missing something.

    You don't. You pay the same price regardless.

    thank you. So my thinking was right. Unless ofcourse you take the unlocked phone to another nerwork like Ting.

    I am told that if you add a phone that you own it will cost $40 for service $25 if on next, so that would be your savings. Have to factor that in. At least that is what I am being charged.

    This is incorrect. The only way your price goes UP for service if you go the two year contract route. Your service costs are exactly the same if you choose next or bring your own device.
