Is there a trade-in program for me to upgrade my Apple Watch Series 3 to the new Series 4? Similar to the AT&T Next program?

I have posted my solution in Apple communities - AT&T cellular troubleshooting in Apple Watch series 4
I bought Watch series 4 GPS+CELLULAR on the release day September 21, Friday from the Apple store. I had the following troubles connecting to the cellular. I have AT&T and it took me about 2 hour in the apple store and Apple Tech Support, and 4 hours with the AT&T store and AT&T tech support to resolve this issue. Once it started feeling like longer than usual, I decided to document how I troubleshooted this. Hope this helps somebody who is having trouble setting up the cellular.
Now this is more like pre-requirements,
If you have all the pre-requirements, great job, now go ahead with the apple watch. If you haven't purchased it yet, buy it. And once you open it and follow the general instructions, it should be pretty simple to get the basic setup done. You can easily get the watch to serve as the normal watch. I'm only documenting the cellular connection part here.
During your watch setup if you encounter the following error message, click 'Continue' and finish the other setup. After the watch is setup, follow through the troubleshooting to fix the cellular.
