If I start a new plan, is it possible to get a device at discounted price after 2 or 3 month?
I intended to start a new 2-year contract recently but I would like to wait until the new iphone is released.
In this case, can I still get the new iphone (if it's available) in around October at discounted price?

If you are not getting a subsidized device when you first start service with AT&T, then you should start service on a month-to-month basis. Then get the latest iPhone when it comes out and start your two-year contract or Next program at that point in time.

I do have my own unlocked device. I'm wondering if I can start the 2-year contract right away and get the subsidized device at October, instead of using the "month-to-month" (prepaid?) plan temporarily?
The point is I would like to start a family plan with other 4 people so I'm not sure if they would like to wait me for 2 or 3 month.
Thanks for replying.

I'm not going to say that you can't do what you want to do; I am unsure on this. What I can say is that there is no advantage to you to start a two-year contract without a subsidized device purchase. You can start postpaid service on a month-to-month basis. You can start a family plan also, with the family members who want new devices starting the two-year contracts now and you can start with month-to-month service and get your new device and contract later.
