Insurance is gone can I buy a phone online?

I have broken two phones in the last 6 months and so I am no longer covered by insurance because I used the two claims I get. 😞 And now this last phone I got won't turn on after three months of having it. So I'm wondering can I buy a phone online and have it activated even though my contract isn't up? And is that the cheapest option?

Buy an unlocked phone from Amazon and insert your sim card.

Sure, you can buy another phone online but you can't buy it on Next you if you already have a Next plan. You either need to just pay for it in full or payoff your current Next plan. All ATT phones are full retail price so it is not the cheapest option. You don't have to buy from ATT. There are other less expensive options.
