Hello. I am currently on a family plan with three basic phones and I am interested in adding a smart phone to the plan. Our contract expired some time ago and I am curious to know if the account holder would have to sign another two year contract to get service on the device.
The contract will only be on the line on which you add the smartphone and only if you get the smartphone subsidized. If you buy the smartphone outright, bring your own, or buy the smartphone under the NEXT plan, you are not under the typical two year contract. However, if you get the smartphone through the NEXT plan, you are required to pay for the smartphone in full if you want to leave AT&T.
