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.

ATT is the worst. Hey don't give a shit about their customers nor their employees. Verizon in fact is crap too. U.S. currently does not have any good wireless carriers to choose from. They are either way overpriced or shitty or both.

My phone has been messed up for a year now and was waiting on my up grade now I have to wait even longer. And if y'all want to be like the other company then give us unlimited data options. Dang I'm paying y'all 300 or more every month!!

Thats stupid!why wouldnt you want to lock more customers early than wait untill their contract is due? Then they will have more options and move on to another carrier. They will sell less iPhones right now Period.No1 is going to spend $700 on a iPhone specially when you have 3-4 members in the family . Its expensive as it is.
