Getting married and both leaving current family plan

My fiance and I are currently both on our separate family's family plans. We both in the last few months got new phones on the Next plan. If those are not paid off at the time we leave our respective family plans to our own account, will that balance carry or will we have to pay it off?

@zblythe When you do a ToBR, the Next payments should carry over into the new account.

 

That said, if either of you have 3 or 4 lines on your current plans, your costs will go up to switch to a two person plan (and so will the per person costs of the plans you are switching from). Generally, the only way costs will not go up is if they are on an outdated plan already (which can be remedied with a few clicks at ATT.com); although sometimes the older plans work out to be cheaper...

There is NO cost to LEAVE a plan if you are doing a ToBR to your own AT&T plan. There is a cost for your new plan, but that's based on the plan you choose (and if you still have payments you still have to make those).

 

If you're leaving AT&T, you owe whatever you owe for your phone still (or an ETF for the contract, but that's pretty rare for a phone these days, consumers generally don't have phone contracts anymore unless they specifically ask for them).
