AT&T has confirmed for Phone Scoop that it is raising the Early Upgrade fee for smartphones from $75 to $200. Users who need to upgrade to a new phone (due to loss, damage, or other reason) before they are eligible for a discount may pay the Early Upgrade fee. AT&T says the new $200 charge for early upgrades reflects the increased complexity of smartphones. AT&T points out that even with the $200 Early Upgrade fee, most smartphones will cost less than the full retail price. The Early Upgrade fee for feature phones and quick messaging devices will remain at $75. The iPhone is exempt from this program.
