How AT&T Next works1

AT&T Next offers you another choice to purchase your smartphone with the flexibility to upgrade earlier.

Well-qualified buyers can choose any of our latest smartphones and pay only the sales tax up front. Or, with AT&T Next with down payment, qualified buyers can get low monthly installment payments by paying 30% of the device cost down.

  • No annual service contract
  • No finance fees

With AT&T Next, the regular price of your smartphone is divided into low monthly installment payments that are conveniently added to your bill.


Options:
AT&T Next 24: Divided into 30 installments; trade in and upgrade after 24 installments.

AT&T Next 18: Divided into 24 installments; trade in and upgrade after 18 installments.

AT&T Next 12: Divided into 20 installments; trade in and upgrade after 12 installments.

AT&T Next with down payment: 30% of device cost down, divided into 28 installments; trade in and upgrade after 12 installments.



After paying the minimum number of installments, trade in your current smartphone and upgrade to a brand-new one. Or, with AT&T Next, you can upgrade in as little as two months when you pay the minimum number of installments early, using our Pay to Upgrade option.2


2Upgrade fee $15 per line applies. Fee does not apply for a line on AT&T Next prior to August 1, 2015, unless line is ever upgraded with a 2-year service agreement. Current smartphone trade-in must be in good physical and fully functional condition.

AT&T Next offers well-qualified buyers the choice to purchase your smartphone for $0 down, dividing the regular price of your smartphone into low monthly installment payments. Another option allows qualified buyers the choice to pay a down payment up front, dividing the remaining cost into monthly installment payments. With AT&T Next, tax is due at the time of sale, but there are no finance fees required.


For well-qualified buyers, the options are:

AT&T Next 24: Divided into 30 installments; can trade in and upgrade after 24 installments.
AT&T Next 18: Divided into 24 installments; can trade in and upgrade after 18 installments.
AT&T Next 12: Divided into 20 installments; can trade in and upgrade after 12 installments.

Some buyers will qualify only for AT&T Next with down payment. Not all buyers will qualify for any AT&T Next option.

AT&T Next requires that you sign an installment agreement to pay for the smartphone in monthly installment payments. If you cancel your wireless service, the remaining unpaid balance on the smartphone is due. Also, a Wireless Customer Agreement for your wireless service or qualified small business agreement (voice and data) is required.

The smartphone is yours, and you’re responsible for the monthly installment payments. You’re also responsible for any loss, theft, or damage to the smartphone—both during the installment agreement period and afterward. We recommend you purchase the optional Mobile Insurance to protect your investment.

After paying the required number of installments, you can trade in an eligible AT&T Next smartphone in good physical and fully functional condition and must purchase a new smartphone on AT&T Next, 2-year service contract, or at full price and activate qualified service (voice and data) on it.

You don’t have to trade in your smartphone. You can continue to make your monthly installment payments until your installment agreement is complete.

If you have Mobile Insurance, you may file a claim and pay the deductible for a replacement smartphone, then use your replacement smartphone as your AT&T Next trade-in. Or, you may choose to just keep your smartphone and complete all installment payments. Once all payments have been made, you can upgrade to a new smartphone with a new AT&T Next installment plan or a 2-year service agreement.

Yes, you can. After you have been billed and made two monthly installment payments, as long as your account is in good standing, you are eligible to take advantage of our Pay to Upgrade option.

To reach upgrade status, you will need to pay your remaining installments in one lump sum. For AT&T Next 24, pay a lump sum amount that completes 24 installment payments. For AT&T Next 18, pay a lump sum amount that completes 18 installment payments. For AT&T Next 12 and AT&T Next with down payment, pay a lump sum amount that completes 12 installment payments. When paid, you are eligible to trade in your AT&T Next smartphone.

Please note that to trade in your smartphone, it must be in good physical condition and fully functional.

If you purchased a tablet with an AT&T Next installment plan (prior to November. 20, 2013), you can trade in the tablet for a new tablet after you have made 12 installment payments, but before you have made 20 installment payments, if your wireless account is in good standing. The tablet must be fully functional and in good physical condition. Your new tablet can be purchased with a new installment plan or any other currently available offers. Tablets purchased on or after Nov. 20, 2013, are not eligible for AT&T Next trade in.

Yes, you have the option to pay off your installment agreement, but the full outstanding balance will be due immediately.

With AT&T Next, you can pay off your installment payments in full at any time. If you want to cancel your wireless service with AT&T, the full outstanding balance on your installment agreement becomes due.

Once you've made 24 (if you have AT&T Next 24), 18 (if you have AT&T Next 18) or 12 (if you have AT&T Next 12 or AT&T Next with down payment) monthly installment payments on your AT&T Next installment agreement, you are eligible to trade in and upgrade your smartphone. Your trade-in must be in good physical condition and fully functional to qualify. This means:

· It must power on and off.

· The screen must be intact, free of any chips, and function properly.

· The device must be free of breaks or cracks.

· The battery must be included.

· The activation lock has been disabled (for example, Find My iPhone).
