Frequently Asked Questions
DEVICE PAYMENT PLAN
How can I purchase a new phone on the Device Payment Plan?
Shop online, visit your local C Spire retail store, or call 1-855-CSPIRE4 (277-4734) to purchase a phone using the Device Payment Plan. A CREW member will be able to review the number of lines you are eligible for and what plans will work best for you.
With the Device Payment Plan, is my device under a contract?
Yes, you must comply with the terms of the agreement to make monthly payments toward the purchase of your device. There is not an early termination fee for cancellation of service.
What's the difference between device pricing on the Device Payment Plan and with a 2-Year Contract?
With the Device Payment Plan, you only pay the sales tax upfront. The Device Payment Plan cost for the device is divided into 24 monthly payments. With a 2-year contract, you pay the promotional price for the device upfront, in one lump sum.
Can I upgrade my device while on the Device Payment Plan?
Yes, you have several options:
Add the Rapid Upgrades Feature
Subscribe to the Rapid Upgrades feature when you get your phone, and you can upgrade after 12 months without having to pay the remaining balance on your current phone. The Rapid Upgrades feature is $5 a month for 12 months. After 12 months, you're no longer charged for the feature whether you choose to upgrade at that time or not. Payments for the Rapid Upgrades feature are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Trade-in of your current phone is required.
Early Upgrade After 18 Months
Once you've had your current phone for 18 months, you can upgrade to a new phone without having to pay the remaining balance (the last six payments). No additional feature subscription required. Trade-in of your current phone is required.
Phones purchased on a Device Payment Plan prior to May 1, 2015, are eligible for an early upgrade after 14 consecutive monthly installments.
Upgrade at Any Time
If you want to upgrade before 12 months (with the Rapid Upgrade feature) or 18 months (without the Rapid Upgrades feature) you can do so by paying the remaining balance on your current device.
When will my Device Payment Plan charges show on my C Spire bill?
The charge for the first of your 24 installment payments will appear on your first bill.
What do I need to pay the day I purchase a new device with the Device Payment Plan?
On the day you purchase a device using the Device Payment Plan, you will be required to pay the following charges:
- Activation fee, if applicable
- Remaining balance on your current C Spire device, if applicable
- Accessories purchased, if applicable
- Sales tax calculated on equipment including the total amount financed (the Device Payment Plan device price)
Any eligible device discounts or promotional credits will be deducted from the total amount financed and will reduce the sales tax and monthly installment payments.
How many phones can I put on the Device Payment Plan on my C Spire account?
The total number of phones you can have on the Device Payment Plan is determined by your approved credit. See a CREW member in a retail store to determine your eligibility.
Do I have to be on a specific plan to use the Device Payment Plan?
No. The Device Payment Plan is offered on any available smartphone rate plan. The new device purchased must be compatible with your rate plan.
If I use the Device Payment Plan can I pay off my remaining balance prior to 24 months?
Yes. There is no penalty or additional cost to pay off your balance early and you can make partial payments at any time to accelerate device payoff.
