Yes, you can use an AT&T locked phone and use it as an off-contract phone in a Mobile Share plan.

 

I will warn you to be sure to know and understand the costs when you get your new phone.  If you are on a Mobile Share plan and you get a new contract subsidized phone, your cost of service will go up by as much as $25/month.  If you purchase a new off-contract phone using AT&T NEXT, then you will have monthly installments on the phone until it is paid for, so it will make the total due on your bill go up by the installment amount on the NEXT program.  This is confusing for many people, so you want to make sure that you fully understand what impacts it will have on your monthly bill.

Depending on what level of data you get each month, your monthly cost for your current phone is either $15 or $25. If you buy the 5s at the 2 year contract price, your monthly cost for that line will increase to $40.
