How to Upgrade Early

Click here to see if you’re eligible for an upgrade. If you’re still in the middle of your contract but ready for that new phone, check out these tips on how to convince your carrier to let you get an early upgrade.

Step 1

Bring up your loyalty to the company. If you have been a customer for many years, most companies won’t want to lose your business. They could be convinced to let you buy your new phone now if you agree to renew your contract.

Step 2

Mention a better deal with another carrier. If your carrier believes you can find a better deal, they might be more willing to let you upgrade early to keep you as a customer.

Step 3

Pay to get an early upgrade. Most companies will allow you to pay a fee, usually between $50 and $100, to receive an early upgrade. This cost usually goes towards the price of the phone, so you could save some money.
