Advantages to Switching to Xfinity Mobile

There are some advantages to switching your cellphone plan to Xfinity Mobile including, no contracts, upgrade your phone when you are ready (no waiting for the contract to expire), paying month-to-month and ending your service when you want to. You can still buy a new phone and set up a payment plan without a cellphone contract, you can switch carriers any time you want to and if you don't want to upgrade your phone you don't have to.

Steps to Making the Switch

  1. Do your research. Find out what plan you want, what you wish to spend and if you want a new phone or want to bring your own device. Xfinity Mobile will not charge you a line access fee, offers free minutes and text and you can switch from unlimited to by-the-gig plans at any time your needs change.
  2. If you want to bring your own device, write down all your phone's information (such as IMEI or International Mobile Equipment Identity), the details about your phone, if there are any cancellation fees, unpaid balances, early termination fees and if your phone is locked (which means it's paired solely to your provider's network). If your phone is locked, you can request it be unlocked by the provider, or you can pay a technician to unlock your phone. Note, unlocking a phone will sometimes void the phones warranty. If you want to purchase a phone, decide on the device you wish to purchase from Xfinity Mobile.
  3. Do a phone backup just in case you lose the information on the phone when you complete the switch (Android phones can be backed up to your Google account, and iPhone devices can be backed up to the iCloud).
  4. Decide how you want to make the switch (in a retail store, online or over the phone). Follow the steps online or over the phone to make the switch or let the retail customer service representative help you.
  5. Once you've confirmed your new plan is up and running, cancel your old plan with your old provider and enjoy the greater control and savings you have with Xfinity Mobile. Also, you don't need to change cellphone number when you make the switch.

Switching to Xfinity Mobile is an easy process. Contact customer service here to take control of your monthly cellphone bill and enjoy more cellular freedom.
