Is a contract required with AT&T Next and AT&T Next Every Year?
AT&T Next and AT&T Next Every Year require 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 business agreement (voice and data) is required.
Do I own the smartphone? Or is this a leasing offer?
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.
When I trade in my smartphone and get a new one, what’s the length of my new installment plan?
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.
What if I don't want to trade in and upgrade my smartphone and I want to keep 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.
What if the smartphone isn't in good working condition when it's time to trade it in?
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 at full price.
