When I do *NEW# on my phone, it says I may be eligible on April 13th. This isn't when the contract is up however, it's up in august. Can I upgrade on April 13th at a place like Walmart or can I only upgrade early at an AT&T store? If it makes a difference, I'm looking at messaging phones and not smartphones.
Upgrades are usually available before your contract expires, depending on how much your spend on that line per month. Early upgrades are anywhere from 4 to 12 months before your contract expires. You can upgrade at that time at any AT&T authorized seller.
