Trade In Question

If I have a couple payments left on my OLD phone, can I pay it off after I trade it in and keep it and use the NEW phone on the Next plan?


I have my new phone now, but I haven't mailed in my old one yet. After looking online, I only owe like $70 on it to pay it off. So, even though I have both phones now, can I pay off the old phone and keep both phones?

If you don’t send in the old phone, yes, At&t will bill the remaining $70 and you keep the phone

Yes, you can keep it. Just don’t send it in. They will bill you the remainder owed.
