AT&T now allows existing customers on contract to take advantage of Next early upgrade program

When AT&T announced their Next early upgrade program back in July, it sounded like one helluva deal. An answer to T-Mobile’s JUMP, AT&T didn’t ask for much, only $0 down and payments of the unsubsidized phone for 20 months.

Unfortunately it wasn’t an offer that was available to loyal customers already on contract. In effort to help keep existing customers happy, AT&T is announcing today that their Next program is now officially available to customers already locked down on a 2-year agreement. The offer is good even or those that just signed up, you’ll just have to wait for the 6 month mark before being able to nab that early upgrade. It might not be Verizon newly announced 30-day wait time for Edge, but at least it’s something.

Oh, and to help offset the monthly installment payments that will be added to service plans on Next, AT&T is reminding customers to take advantage of their Mobile Share Value plans, which offer unlimited voice and text, as well as various data tiers for $25 a line. AT&T calls it a “win-win”, but we’ll let you decide.

Want to see if you’re eligible for Next? Simply dial *NEW# in your smartphone’s dialer for more info.

      I’d be shocked to see them bring that back anytime soon. As awesome as T-Mobile is doing, the top 2 carriers aren’t feeling the heat… yet. It’ll take more time and momentum to see some real competition.

        And if sprint and T-Mobile becomes as good as ATT and Verizon in terms of good cellular services, thier prices are going to go up

    As a long time customer of at&t, I have to say dealing with their underhanded tactics, getting contracts magically applied to devices that should never have been under contract and whole bunch of other issues with them. It felt really good to switch to tmo.

    They are about three years late with these instant upgrade programs. Who needs them when the phones and the OS have matured to a point where your next phone is at best a marginal improvement over your current one.
