How to Upgrade a 32GB iPhone to a 64GB
Apple's iPhones come in different models based on how much internal memory they have. For the iPhone 4, there is a 32 GB model and a 64 GB model. Aside from the difference in memory, these two models are exactly the same. If you have the 32 GB model and wish to upgrade it to a 64 GB model, there are two options you have.
Things You'll Need
- Copy of your AT&T contract
Within 30 Days of Your Contract Start
Check your AT&T contract. AT&T offers a 30-day cancellation policy for all its contracts. Check the start date of your contract to see if you are within the 30-day window.
Go to your local AT&T Wireless store. If there are no retails stores near you, you should contact the telephone customer support of AT&T. The toll-free number is 1-800-331-0500.
Upgrade your iPhone and sign new contract. If within the 30 days, you can exchange your 32 G model for the 64 GB model, pay the pricing difference and sign a new contract.
Beyond the 30 Day Start Date
Check your contract. If you are beyond the 30 day start date of your contract, you will not be able to turn your iPhone in to AT&T and upgrade to the 64 GB model. However, if you are experiencing technical issues with your iPhone, you may be able to return the iPhone to either an Apple retail store or to AT&T.
Sell your iPhone. Use either online auction or another listing source to sell your 32 GB iPhone. Since the buyer of your iPhone will not have to sign a long-term contract, your buyer will most likely be willing to spend much more than the contracted price you paid for the iPhone.
Buy a 64 GB model and activate it on your contract. Your existing contract will remain in effect.
