Hello, I currently have an iPhone 6, but I would like to upgrade to an iPhone 8+ as soon as I pay off my tab... can I atill keep my original plan 1gb/35$ a month and also do I have to pay the iPhone 8+ and put the rest on a new tab? Not sure how all that works thanks
The thing to remember is that your tab and plan are married to your SIM, not your current handset. As long as you keep up your regular payments, there is nothing to keep you from putting that SIM (or a replacement if you need a different size) into another phone that you borrowed or own.
What gets complicated is trying to open a new tab, since only one can be active at a time. At that point, you reach a settlement (paying of the existing tab), and the divorce is complete. Hello new best friend and relationship.
It might pay you to keep your current plan and buy a phone outright, or
take on a new tab bargain while giving up your old plan. It's for you
the figure out. Do the math over 24 months of ownership.
