If you are an AT&T subscriber, chances are you have a plan in which you sign up for a two-year contract, and you are tied to your phone for a that period of time.
Now, AT&T is changing things up a bit. It’s offering a plan that gives you yearly upgrades. However, the handset is not subsidized. You are on a plan in which you pay full price for your phone over the next two years. For instance, say you buy an iPhone 5, and you choose to pay the $600. You may pay it off in increments where an additional $30 is added to your standard phone bill. However, if the iPhone 5S releases, you can trade in your device after a year and get the new one. The only real caveat here is that your payment cycle refreshes, too. Then again, you got a new phone.
