The AT&T iPhone 6s preorders start tonight and there is a major catch that buyers upgrading from the iPhone 6 on AT&T Next plans need to know about.
While this is still the case, anyone who wants to take part in the AT&T iPhone 6s preorder tonight and who is upgrading from on this plan will need to make a final installment plan payment from $25 to $40 depending on their normal monthly phone payment.
AT&T confirmed to Gotta Be Mobile that users who see the message stating they are future eligible for an AT&T iPhone 6s preorder will need to make this payment tonight instead of on their normal bill.
Login to the AT&T website to see if you still owe or dial *NEW# from your AT&T phone to get a text with any outstanding payments needed or other upgrade information.
Users can login now to make the payment before the AT&T website is slammed with preorders later tonight.
Users who wait will need to make this payment tonight to be eligible for an AT&T Next upgrade and they will need to trade in their old iPhone as well.
The AT&T Next 12 plan allows upgrades after 12 payments, but most iPhone 6 owners who bought on day one only made 11 payments so far. There is a total of 18 payments under this plan.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus preorders start at 12:01 AM Pacific tonight and 3:01 AM Eastern. Users can order online at Apple, Target, AT&T and at other retailers.
