Most major wireless carriers lock their customers to their phones for up to two year which is annoying especially if your sick and tired of your phone. Now AT&T is giving its customers the ability to upgrade their smartphone or tablet EACH YEAR. The plan is called “Next” which will factor in the price of the new device with 20 monthly payments. The plan launches July 26 and will be available for new and existing customers eligible for upgrades. This new plan comes just one week after T-Mobile launches its bi-annual upgrade program “JUMP.” Coincidence .. I think NOT ! Oh and did I mention Verizon’s idea on letting its customers upgrade their devices twice a year? Let the upgrade battle begin.
