    I always wondered the same. I believe they make you extend the contract by two more years if they give you the new contract price at any time. So you sign a contract for two more years after your original contract and you get a new phone at contract price that way.

    You can always get a new phone, you just pay an ass-ton to get it. I would call and ask to clarify for myself, but I plan on selling two Erises and an EnV to fix my current phone situation. So it won't bother me. But call and ask as it may vary by customer too, like how long you've been a customer and all that.
     
  3. After a year or so you get a discounted price on the phone in exchange for a new 2 year contract.

    So after one year, you can throw the old contract out and do another two year? It doesn't tack on to the original one for a total of four years, just three?
     
  6. It overrides the current contract and you start from day 1 again.

    You dont get the full discount that you would by waiting the almost 2 years, but its enough discount to make it worth upgrading, hence the reason most people get a new phone every 12-15 months.

    yeah I think you get the discounted price plus $20 tacked onto it

    so if u can get a new phone with 2 year contract for $99 then if u still have one year left it would cost u $119

    I might be wrong though

    It is half priced...so everything is half that which is listed...I am on my brothers plan...we have 4 phones (all smart) 2000 anytime minutes, unlimited everything else (text, nights weekends, mobile to mobile and such), and we pay a total of 160 for all 4 phones. And get a free upgrade every year
