Iphone 6 on Mobile Share, then paying ETF

Is it possible to buy the Iphone 6 128gb on mobile share, then wait 4 weeks and cancel the ETF, while remaining on the same plan and with ATT?


Why I'm Asking:

Normal Method:

399 up front cost

20*24 = 480 loss of "discount" since now on contract (includes corp discount)




This method:Assuming after 1 month you do the ETF

399 up front cost

325 ETF

-10 (ETF reduced assuming you wait 1 month)

+20 loss of discount




this would be a savings of $146


Is it possible to pay ETF and stay on same plan and with ATT? Would this work?

I presume you mean buy the phone at the discounted 2 year contract price. No, not possible. You only pay the ETF when you cancel service. If you re-establish service within 6 months, your old contract will be reinstated.
