How to upgrade trade-in promo early


I have a monthly trade-in promo credit for my iPhone. I currently have 20 more months of trade in credit left of the 36 month credit. If I were to pay off my current phone and get  the new iphone, will I continue to get the remaining 20 credits applied towards future 20 statements? 

To clarify I m not terminating the service, just paying off the phone early to upgrade.

No, if you pay off early to upgrade, you will lose any remaining credits.

As written in the promotional agreement, 

  • To get all credits, the discounted device must remain on installment agreement with eligible service for entire installment term. If you upgrade or pay up/off the installment agreement early, your credits may cease.

Upgrading or canceling service terminates your deal.
