Stay on 10GB and upgrade with Next or pay for phones ($184/month average over 24 months.)
Just a word of caution. The NEXT program comes in 2 variants. NEXT 12 and NEXT 18. If you select NEXT 12, you pay the off-contract price for the phone, but it is divided over 20 months. You can "Upgrade" (turn in your good condition & working phone for a new one with a new 20 month payment plan) after 12 months, and if you go the full 20 months, you get to keep the old phone and can get a new one. The NEXT 18 program works the same way, except that the upgrade eligiblility starts at 18 months, and you own the phone after 26 months. Note that neither option is based on 24 months, just 20 or 26...
The other thing to keep in mind if opting for NEXT is that if you're one of those folks who like to or plan to upgrade frequently...the NEXT 12 is the better way to go cost-wise, assuming of course you upgrade at or shortly after the 12-month mark.
