    Default Is there a reason to not upgrade and get a free phone?

    I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place to ask this question.
    Long story short, I own phone "A" on contract with ATT. My dad got me international phone "B", which I replaced phone "A" on the same contract, same carrier. In June I can upgrade my phone for another 2 years contract, but I still want to use phone "B" (it's the awesome note 3) while paying 0 dollar for the discounted phone "C" to keep it like an ipod touch; phone "C" is a crappy but new contract phone.

    Is this a possible scenario?
    because I could either keep paying 60 bucks a month for phone "B" for 2 years
    OR I could get phone "C" for free, pay the usual 60 bucks a month and still go on for 2 years using my old phone "B"
    Thank you!

    The reason not to is the contract. I left contract required service long ago and will never go back but if you are fine with it go ahead. Most people swap there phone B back on to the account and then sell phone C on Swappa or Craig's list. Just get At&t to unlock phone C for you so it is clear to sell.

    yea I think I'll still stick with ATT indefinitely
    it sucks but it's the only reliable network around

    You can still stick with At&t and not have a contract. But I see that a discounted phone is good bait.

    And the phone isn't free.

    yea actually unlocking the new phone and selling it is something i'm looking into as well
    and it depends on the phone, some are 199 dollars when you renew the contract but I can still sell this discounted phone for much more than that
