Dallas -- AT&T* wireless customers will soon have another choice for buying a new smartphone for $0down on the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network** with AT&T NextSM 24.*** The new plan will begin Nov. 9. It was announced today at the AT&T Consumer Industry Analyst Conference.
AT&T Next 24 is the newest way for AT&T customers to get a new smartphone with lower monthly payments and more time to pay it off. After 24 payments, if in good condition, customers can trade in their AT&T Next smartphone and upgrade to a brand new device under a qualifying offer.
When customers choose AT&T Next with AT&T's Mobile Share Value plans, they can also receive a monthly discount on the access charge for that smartphone line. When adding an AT&T Next line to a Mobile Share Value plan, customers can save $25 per month on that smartphone line's access charge for plans 10GB or higher or $15 per month on plans less than 10GB.
"Customer response to AT&T Next has been great. With a variety of payment options, they can choose the device and plan that fits their budget," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility. "AT&T Next gives customers flexible pricing options at an incredible value on a reliable network that keeps them connected."
AT&T customers can choose the monthly installment plan that works for them - either AT&T Next 12 (a 20-month installment plan), AT&T Next 18 (a 24-month installment plan) or the new AT&T Next 24 (a 30-month installment plan). AT&T Next is available for new, qualified AT&T customers or existing customers who are upgrade eligible.
AT&T Next is available for any current smartphone in AT&T's wide selection of devices. The interest-free device installments range from $10 to $50 a month, depending on the device selected.
Beginning today, customers who switch to AT&T and activate a new line of service with a smartphone on AT&T NextSM will receive a $150 bill credit.*****
AT&T customers have choices with buying a new device that fits their budget. In addition to AT&T Next, customers continue to have device purchase options, including a discounted device with a two-year service commitment; paying full retail price for a device with no commitment; a partial discount for an early upgrade after six months with a two-year service commitment; or bringing their own compatible device.
