You have two options for purchasing a device: a Device Payment Plan or a 2-year contract:
Device Payment Plan (DPP)
Pay full price for the device over 24 months. Since you're paying for the device over two years, you get a break on your monthly plan cost. All of the plan prices on the website reflect the DPP discount. Payment of sales tax on the full device price is due at checkout.
With a 2-Year Contract, you pay a one-time discounted price for your device. Since you're paying less for the device upfront, you pay a little more each month for your plan. An additional $25 will be added to the monthly price for each of our plans. To see what you'll pay each month, add a device and plan to your cart. The new price for the plan will be reflected in the cart.
Note: A plan subscription is required with all DPP and 2-Year Contract device purchases. Purchasing a device on DPP may be required for some device types or promotions, or based on credit results. The monthly plan price for data-only devices (tablets, hotspots, data cards, MiFis, etc.) is the same for DPP and 2-Year Contract purchases.
