Payout

Answered
When I buyout the phone on my contract. Does that mean I can keep the phone? If so do I have to sign up again for another phone plan?

Re: Payout

Hi @rayshio,

 

If you are on a 'Buy' plan option, then once the contract has ended, you will own that phone. 

 

If you are on a 'Lease' plan option, then you have the option to buy the phone at the market value price when the plan contract ends.

 

Once you own the handset, you may want to consider one of the BYO plan options which can you find here: https://tel.st/9qvfh

Yes. If you payout the phone on your contract, you own the phone. No, you don't have to sign up for another phone plan.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
