AT&T has announced it has changed its device upgrade policy to 24 months with a standard two-year wireless agreement, a change from the company’s prior 20-month upgrade policy. Customers must now wait two full years to receive a full discount on purchasing a subsidized device. The company suggests that the change applies to customers whose current contract agreements expire in March 2014 or later. In April, Verizon also changed its full subsidy upgrade eligibility to 24 months.
