Someone needs to tell Jacob from "The Verge" that ATT does not lease phones. Reporting these days is rumor with a heavy helping of fertilizer. (In my line of work we call it poop).

According to a link I found, the only requirement is to have DirecTV or Uverse
Yeah, but the article also said the phones needed to be bought through ATT's leasing program, so not too credible.

The BOGO offer on iPhone requires one new line to ATT and Direct TV or Uverse services.

This BOGO works like previous BOGO's where you buy two phones then come back here in 3-6 months and complain about not getting any credits only to find you didn't meet the BOGO requirements.
Please read the requirements carefully and make sure you meet them, otherwise no credits. A new line and Directv satellite service is required.

So I got up at 3 this morning to order new iphones for my daughters, one new line and one upgrade.
All was going pretty well, but I noticed that while I could change the NEXT plan for 30-24 months on the upgrade, the second one I added through the nice "get another one for free prompts" was set to the 30-month plan. Talked to the folks on chat who said, no problem, finish the order, and call tomorrow to get it switched to the 24 month plan.
Called this morning, and twice was transfer/disconnected, so gave up on that. Tried the social media channels and finally get a hold of someone who says - there's no way to fix that order, best they can do is cancel the line that's wrong, and I can re-order on the 24-month plan. They go to do so, and turns out they can't, they'd have to cancel the whole order. Which - I'd let them do, but pretty sure I'll end up in the exact same boat, because the interface wouldn't let me choose the 24-month plan. Is there no way to get this contract updated prior to the device shipping?
Anyone else been successful at doing this with two iphones on the BOGO 24-month plans? I tried to look and see if the site had been updated to allow it, and I could just cancel and redo the whole order, but I don't even the screen about the bogo offer at all any more, so am concerned that might go from bad to worse...

I just got off chat with a service rep. I have two phones available for upgrade. They said I must add a line/service to qualify for the BOGO. Just changing the phones does not qualify for as a "new service".
