Customers Can Choose a Lower Monthly Payment or a Quicker Upgrade

AT&T* is providing new and existing customers with simpler and more flexible ways to upgrade to a new smartphone.

We know you want flexibility and choices. With our new plans, we’re giving you the power to decide between lower monthly payments or the ability to upgrade to the latest smartphone sooner.

Starting June 9, AT&T will simplify the smartphone purchase experience from 4 installment options to 2 following1:

  • AT&T Next Every YearSM: Upgrade to a new device every year, with a 24-month financing program term.
  • AT&T Next®: Upgrade every 2 years, with a 30-month financing program term.

With the new options, consumers and businesses can reduce their monthly payments:

  • Device Trade-in: Customers who own their device, can trade it in and apply the value toward the new device cost in AT&T retail stores.
  • Down payment: Customers can put money down at the time of purchase to apply towards the new device cost.

Here’s how it works:
