Device but out

If you get a device on a plan, can you buy out the device earlier and keep the data plan, making it easier. Telstra still gets full $$, Just a lump sum at one point?

Re: Device but out

No, the billing system is set up with the details of the contract and there are discounts on the device cost that are linked to the duration of the plan. If you cancelled the plan early then there would be extra device costs to be paid out so it would actually be messier than paying off the device monthly.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
