Paying off installment balance/credits

I'm currently on Next with monthly installment payments. A credit is applied to my account each month because I traded in a phone.

My question is: If I were to pay off the outstanding balance owed in one lump sum, will the remaining credits be deducted from that balance?

Hope that made sense.

Nope if you pay it off credits also stop.

 The offer says "may stop". But they do...

I've never heard of getting monthly credits for a trade in. I suspect your monthly credits are due to a buy one get one offer. If that is the case, if you pay off the balance, you lose the monthly credits. Edit: if you are participating in the iPhone 6/6s trade in for a free iPhone 7 offer, those credits are not for the trade in. You are just getting a free iPhone 7 just like if bought on a BOGO offer. Same rule applies, if you pay off the balance, you lose the monthly credits.
