AT&T Lets Customers Stretch Out Phone Payments Further

AT&T today announced AT&T Next 24, a third option for breaking down device payments into smaller monthly chunks. As with AT&T Next 12 and AT&T Next 18, the new plan lets customers join AT&T without requiring a contract. Customers can acquire a phone for $0 down followed by monthly payments that vary according to the phone's cost. With Next 24, customers can upgrade to a new device after making 24 payments, and the device is paid off after 30 total payments. In order to get a new phone with no downpayment, customers will need to turn in their old device when they choose to upgrade after 24 payments. In addition to the new financing option, customers who switch to AT&T and activate a new line of service with a smartphone on AT&T Next will receive a $150 bill credit.

What's the point?

Is contract free really a big deal when you already have to make payments for 1-2yrs? What happens if you decide you want to upgrade in the middle of paying off the old phone? 🤨
if you're on the next 24, and lets say your phone costs 5 bucks a month, and you want to upgrade after a year, you just pay the difference of what month your on, and then 24th month. (in this example it's 12, so 12 months times 5 bucks = $60)

Oh lord...you can pay it off ANY time you'd like

This is a simple program; interest free financing with the option to trade in device OR pay off the balance ANY time you'd like, keep your phone and start again with a new one.

So if keeping your old phone fancies you, you are more than welcomed to do so.

Full retail divided by 30 - must wait 24 months to upgrade by trade in, or pay off balance the first 5-6 months or whenever really, and just start the cycle again.
