Although there are multiple AT&T Next plans right now, the carrier has now decided to cut them down. It is now basically divided into two, one which allows you to upgrade to a new device every year after paying 50% of the original device’s cost and a standard 24-month affair that lets you change phones every two years after paying about 80% of the cost of the first device.
In order to lower the monthly installment rates, AT&T now lets you pay the down payment (as much as you please) up front. This will cut down the monthly installment costs and offer you more flexibility with regards to payments. There’s also the option of trading in your existing device and using its value towards getting a new offering. This is an incredibly simple process and will probably be preferred by most users.
What do you make of these new plans? Will it be a hit or a bust?
