AT&T Revises Upgrade Policy, Eliminates Early Upgrade Options
AT&T has revised their upgrade policy from 18-20 months to a full 24 months. Just like Verizon did a few months back, AT&T is eliminating all early upgrades.
The cut off date is March 2014 -- meaning that if your upgrade eligibility was March 2014 or after, it is now pushed back anywhere from 4-6 months.
Today, we’re announcing a 24-month upgrade policy across all of AT&T’s wireless products and services. This aligns device upgrade eligibility with our standard two-year wireless agreement and it applies to any customer whose agreement expires in March 2014 or later.
Anyone who ordered a launch iPhone 5 and signed a two year contract will now see their upgrade eligibility moved back to 24 months (September 2014), instead of their previous date.
You can check your eligibility date by dialing *NEW# (*639#) from your wireless device. Let us know if your date is now changed as well.
