    I'm trying to talk to an AT&T rep but can't get through.

    I currently have an AT&T Next contract. On the AT&T website, it tells me:

    Pay Off $541.51

    ARIELLE's HTC 0P6B120
    Pay the remaining AT&T Next℠ Balance to become upgrade eligible and own your device.

    So does this mean I will be upgrade eligible immediately after I pay that off? Either for a new AT&T Next or regular 2 year contract?

    But the Apple.com websites tells me I could buy a phone today for $749.00 using their check eligibility tool. Not sure what I should do! Any clarification would help.

    Technically yes, though you may need to chat with AT&T to get the record updated instantly after payment since you are working with a timed order need.

    Only AT&T will be able to tell you for sure. If you pay it off right now I wouldn't be surprised if it would take 24-48 hours for all of AT&Ts systems to be properly updated.

    darn, still waiting on AT&T. I did try to go through checkout with a 5S on apple.com and said i could get a 2 year contract, and went through adding the services and everything. not sure if it would be the same when the 6 goes live.

    if Apple is offering you the full discount on ANY version phone you should be good.

    You can choose pay to upgrade and immediately upgrade once you pay off. They'll send you a prepaid shipping label if you're sending the phone back, however if you're gonna pay off your next and keep the phone I would assume the same, that you'll be upgrade eligible in the same transaction. At least that's the gist I got from 5 reps.

    Awesome, I'm now eligible for an upgrade. So now to decide to opt in to a 2 year contract, or another AT&T Next contract.
