    GUDP upgrade?

    My Grandfather UDP contract will be expired on Oct. I received the following message, should I accept it? If I accept, my line will be in contract again? ? How can I avoid price hike $20?

    "You’re not dreaming. Upgrade early to any 4G LTE smartphone.

    Upgrade early to a new 4G LTE smartphone on Device Payment. Talk about an upgrade."

    Nope. Device payment plan doesn’t lock you into a contract, since in the end you are paying full price for the phone.

    Right. That isn't a contract. That's just a boiler plate email they send out all the time to eligible accounts to try and sell new phones.

    Yes, it’s a dream of mine to pay full price for a phone!

    Upgrade is an outdated term carriers tried to use in this era of full price phone payment. I'd just wait for third party deals like best buy or Costco gift card promo like $300 gift card promo

    This is not correct. The DPP will definitely enter you into a contract.............for the phone. It does not renew the contract for your plan, however. Most DPP prices are lower than full price, but nothing like the old two year contract prices of yesteryear.

    It is correct in the context of the original question, which was to avoid the monthly plan price hike.
