AT&T announced tonight a new plan that will let customers upgrade to a new smartphone once every year. It's called AT&T Next, and it's very similar to the "Jump" trade-in program rival carrier T-Mobile announced last week. Here's how it works: New AT&T customers and those eligible for an upgrade can sign up for Next. You get a new smartphone or tablet for $0 down, but you have to agree to pay a monthly fee for the device. http://www.businessinsider.com/att-next-2013-7
