How to Find Out If I Can Get an Upgrade to My AT&T Phone

If you have AT&T service and you wish to change your phone, or if you have lost the phone and need a new one, you should first check to see if you qualify for an upgrade. If you do qualify for an upgrade you would greatly reduce the cost of your new cell phone and maybe even get it for free. Contrary to common perception, you do not have to wait for the end of your contract to get an upgrade or get a new phone.
