AT&T Buyback Program

Return. Recycle.

Recycle your phone, tablet, or netbook.* You will get the buyback value in the form of a credit or promotion card to spend on future AT&T purchases.

This Buyback Program is not used for AT&T Next upgrades. If you use the Buyback Program with a smartphone that is still under an active AT&T Next installment agreement, the terms of the agreement will still apply and you will still be responsible for the remaining installment payments.
