    Do you just pay the difference when the 7 comes out?

    If you are on the AUP, and sell your iPhone privately, you must pay off the loan before you can get an upgrade. Alternatively, if you have made at least 12 loan payments and trade in your phone to Apple, you will be elgable for an upgrade. You would get a new phone and have a new cycle of loan payments.

    If you sell you're out the program as you no longer have a phone to trade in. In order to get the 7 you'd just get it like everyone else that's not in the program.

    Or you pay off the loan balance as mentioned above and you can get a new phone under the AUP.

    OP. I would pay off the phone before you sell it, or immediately after you sell it with the funds you made by selling the device. That way the buyer doesn't have to worry about the phone not being paid off and it won't affect your credit if you don't pay off the device.

    You mean to say that you're asking all this now, after the phone is gone?

    way to go...

    Right, but you're no longer in the program as you won't be trading in. It's semantics, but you'd be joining the program like everyone else who isn't in.

    I talked to Apple and they said that if you don't have the phone you just pay what you owe which would be Half of the phone since you already made a year of payments

    Buyer doesn't have to worry about the phone not being paid off, it's unlocked.

    It's not a matter of being locked vs unlocked. If the phone isn't paid off, Apple may blacklist it like ATT and Sprint do.

    I would personally not buy a phone that is still being paid on. And it's only right to disclose.
