I'm going to guess no. Check your account online to see if any of your lines are eligible for an upgrade.

In general, you have full upgrade eligibility after you have completed the 24 months of your contact. Usually, you are able to get that full upgrade on the first of the month in which your contract expires. Now, if you aren't eligible for a full upgrade, you might be eligible for an "early upgrade". This is usually available after you have finished at least 12 months of your contract. This means you pay the full upgrade price plus an additional $250. With this being December, you are probably better off to wait the 3 weeks to save the $250 and get the full upgrade price.

So for the 2 yr contract you will have to wait till January, but I know for myself I was able to get a phone under the NEXT program even though I was less than a yr into my 2 yr contract.  So you are probably able to get a new phone under the NEXT program if you dont want to wait a month.  Also you will need to see if you are better off with the NEXT program or with a 2 yr contract depending on what plan you are on.  If you are on one of the newer Family shared plans it might be better to go on the NEXT program, but again it is different case by case.
