My device is part of the Apple Upgrade program. Can I join Reach?
Yes! Here are specific details about joining Reach if your phone is part of the Apple Upgrade program:
- Can I still lease my phone to complete the two years of payments if I switch carriers (away from the big four)?
- Yes. Changing to a carrier outside of the big four only affects your ability to renew with iPhone Upgrade Program. You can continue paying until the end of the two-year term and then you will own the phone!
- By switching am I simply voiding my participation in the upgrade program (so no longer eligible for upgrades but can keep my device after it is paid off)?
- Yes, you are voiding the ability to do an “early upgrade” or “renew” through the iPhone Upgrade Program, but you can still pay off your phone and then use a different purchasing option when you go to buy your next phone. Apple does not require you to pay your device off in full in order to switch.
