went by our local ATT store. Lady explained this...........................

On the NEXT program doing the 20 month/trade at 12 months: $37.50 @ 12 months = $450.00

Apple Upgrade doing 2 year plan trading after 12 months: $36.58 @ 12 months = $438.96 including Apple Care.

Apple upgrade plan also includes Applecare + for 2 years. Add a warranty through AT&T and their price jumps big time.

That is misleading. The NEXT program is 20 months and then you own the phone. The Apple plan is 24 months and then you own the phone. So at the 12 month mark it is similar but you are only 8 months from paying off the phone while with the Apple plan you still have to make 12 more $37.50 payments.

The prices are the same. The only difference is the Apple plan is $129 more expensive to cover the cost of Apple Care.
