AT&T Mimics Verizon, Pushes Upgrades to 24 Months

AT&T today announced a change to its device upgrade policy, extending the amount of time between when customers are eligible for discounted devices. As it stands today, customers become eligible for discounted pricing after fulfilling 20 months of their 24-month contract. Beginning today, any new customer signing a new contract will have to wait 24 months instead of 20 to receive discounted device pricing. AT&T says the policy change "aligns" its contract and discount terms. The change applies to existing customers whose agreements expires in March 2014 or later. According to AT&T, customers can pay full price for a new device at any time, as well as use any unlocked GSM device they might own. AT&T also said that customers can trade in old devices for cash or credit when purchasing new equipment. Verizon Wireless made a similar change to its upgrade policy earlier this year.
