AT&T Next Up
So I traded in a 12 pro max for a 14 pro max which AT&T gave me $1000 for my trade in making the phone $99.99. It’s been about a year already and I’ve paid $33.36 towards the device itself. When I want to upgrade to the 15 pro max in a couple of days it says to pay 50% off ($225.15) or pay off the whole device($775.15). Why is it that the cost of the phone is $99.99 after trade in credit but they want me to pay $225. I’ve been paying $2.78/mo for the last year so why can’t I just pay the $66.72 I owe and be able to own the phone if they gave me a $1000 trade in.
