iPhones to be available on AT&T Next and other plans at Apple Store

Apple Stores will begin to offer iPhones on no-contract plans with major carriers later this year (NASDAQ:AAPL, NYSE:T)

Wireless carriers want to get away from offering big subsidies on smartphones and start financing out new devices for customers. Three of the major carriers already have plans in place to do that with AT&T Next, T-Mobile Jump, and Verizon Edge. Right now if you buy an iPhone in an Apple Store, you can only get a two-year contract plan or pay full price for an unlocked device.

That will be changing with Apples Stores gearing up to offer iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones via AT&T Next, T-Mobile Jump, and Verizon Edge. At the Apple Store Verizon Edge will break the phone purchase price up into 24 payments, AT&T Next breaks it into 20, and T-Mobile Jump breaks it into 24 payments.

 

One source says that these plans will be available at Apple Stores in an unspecified test market to begin with. After the issues are worked out, these plans will be offered at other stores later in 2014.
