AT&T starts 'Next' program for annual device upgrades Just a few days after T-Mobile USA unveiled their "Jump" program for upgrading your phone multiple times per year, AT&T has unveiled a similar system.
Staring next week, AT&T Next will allow buyers to purchase new smartphones or tablets once per year without a down payment. You can trade in your existing device after 12 months or pay an installment plan for 20 months and then keep the device.

Unlike T-Mobile's plan, which costs $10 per month and allows users to upgrade their phone every six months, AT&T Next will only spread out the cost of the device over time and allow annual upgrades.

For example, a Samsung Galaxy 4 will cost $32 per month on top of your data and voice/text plan. It is unclear if the iPhone will be included.
