When AT&T Next made its debut in mid-2013, the big blue carrier let customers pay $0 down for their new device and then make 20 monthly payments on it. Then in late 2013, AT&T Next 18 debuted, allowing customers to spread their payments out to 26 (now 24) months. Now AT&T is extendingl those payments out even further.
AT&T Next 24 will be available starting November 9 and will allow customers to pay $0 down for their new device and then spread the full cost of that product out over 30 months. Users will be able to trade in their device and upgrade to a new one after 24 payments.
Paying for a new device over 30 months may seem like a long time for those of us that upgrade every six months or on a yearly basis, but AT&T Next 24 could be a nice option for folks that stick with a smartphone for a long time or people that want a hot new device but can’t afford the higher payments that come with an AT&T Next 12 plan or two-year commitment.
AT&T also says that, starting today, consumers that switch to AT&T and buy a new device through AT&T Next will receive a $150 bill credit. In order to receive this credit, your account will need to remain in good standing for 45 days.
Have you signed up for AT&T Next or a similar monthly installment plan for a new device?
