my upfront edge amount is 380$
the reason why i did it is that after my 2 year term is up im quite certain i should be able to sell the phone for that amount if not more.
gauging on how much used devices which are about 2 years old (current IphoneX64gb) they're selling used for around 500-600 dollars.
if i can sell my phone for 500 dollars i figure that covers my upfront edge buyout and gives me a few dollars to put towards my next upgrade
works for me
