Or at least the cost of tax. Im sure other phones will give you a discount. Last year an 8 got me $500.

We are ATT and on unlimited -- so we can go from our 1 year old 12, to a 13 for $82 (tax).

I think the statement below is wrong... says PRO is free, mini is free, PRO MAX $99 and basic 13 $99.

Guessin both 13 and 13 mini are free, 13 PROs are $99. And $200 off 2 watches. have a used 4 and 5, could resell... but thinking not for much. Since the SE is better than both @ $299

Starting with AT&T, new and existing AT&T customers will have the opportunity to get a new iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 mini at no cost, with an eligible trade in and on an unlimited cellular plan.

Under this deal, the iPhone 13 Pro costs $0, the iPhone 13 mini costs $0, the iPhone 13 Pro Max costs $99, and the iPhone 13 costs $99. You can also get $200 off the Apple Watch Series 7 when purchasing two at once.

Those prices might be irresistible! I will have to check!

'Free' - you're paying with your service fees. Compared to prepaid plans.

If you goal is to save as much money as you can, absolutely.

We have 4 lines, pay about $45 per line with unlimited everything... got new 12s last year for free (tax) after our trade ins. Its a great deal... for us.

If it was only a single person, maybe there better options... but just I don't know

With Total Wireless (Verizon VZW towers) we have 3 lines at $26.92/mo. per line. Unlimited. No deals on phone upgrades sad smiley

Read the fine print. I did not see the details, but I'd offer the word of caution from experience.

Last year, AT&T's 'trade in' locked you in for more than 2 years. Once they have your replacement phone, they would give you monthly credit on your bill for 30 months.

jdc-

i didn't realize the link had the info about possible deals.

i am reading it now and working my way through the many comments.

i did go to the verizon page but they had nothing about the iphone 13!

surprising, right.

thanks for the posting.

stay well.

Yes, read the fine print -- when I logged into AT&T tonight to pay my bill, I noticed this same "deal", but then when I looked to see the fine print, here's what I found:

"This is NOT an early upgrade program.

Eligible devices for $1000 credit:

Apple iPhone: 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 12, 12mini, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, XS Max
Samsung Galaxy: Fold, Fold 5G, S20 5G, S20 Ultra 5G, S20+, Note10+, Note10+ 5G, Note20, Note20 Ultra 5G, Z Flip, S20 FE, S20 FE 5G, S21 5G, S21+ 5G, S21 Ultra 5G, ZFold2 5G, Z Flip3 5G, Z Fold3 5G
Google: Pixel 5
LG: WING™ 5G
OTHER: ZTE Red Magic 3"

Gah. No iPh13 for me.

Not that we are upping to 13s, but would be interested in the fine print as well.

Out iPhone Xr's were paid off, trade in to ATT for $800 "credit", iPhone 12 is $800 = technically we don't owe any more money on it = eligible to upgrade? since we arent on a plan?

If we are on whatever fine print rules they state, I dunno how that would work. Need to pay off the phone in full? pay remaining balance? welllll, both are $0.

Realistically, nothing wrong with our 12s, so when 14s come, trade in and move to a 14 for "free" again. =)

Oh, and yet another reason I won't be upgrading: still no Touch ID. Had I known the 12 wouldn't have Touch ID, I might have reconsidered getting it. It's a major hassle, not having Touch ID.
