AT&T Makes It Easier to Jump to 'Next' Plans
AT&T today made it easier for existing customers to get their hands on new hardware. Beginning today, existing customers who've signed 2-year service contracts can upgrade to new devices for $0 down if they want to take advantage of AT&T's Next program and switch to AT&T's Mobile Share Value plans. The program, which went into effect January 18, allows customers who are six months into their contract to upgrade to the AT&T Next program at no extra cost. Customers who join AT&T Next can then grab the latest handsets for $0 down. Customers who choose to finance their device with an AT&T Next plan will enjoy a $15 monthly savings on the cost of their service. Further, customers who sign up for a two-year agreement after January 19, 2014 will notice that the standard upgrade timeframe has been shortened from 24 months back to 20 months.
