Phone "Activate Today"

Not sure how the "activate today" thing works. Do I register for a service plan through the BestBuy website when purchasing the phone, or do I go to a carrier website and do it from there? Also, how long is the contract when getting a plan through "activate today"? Am I forced into a contract for as long as I use the phone or will I be able to switch my carrier down the road if I so desire?

Re: Phone "Activate Today"

Welcome to the forums!


I appreciate you taking the time to join us and write us regarding our Unlocked Phones. The way the “Activate today” price works, is by activating it on our website, or in-store with Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint. If you choose any other carrier, it would be the “Activate Later” pricing, because we’re currently only able to activate service with those carriers. You can always click on the “See details” option for more information on pricing with those carriers as well. Also, these unlocked phones will, in-fact, lock to the first carrier you use. If you want to change it, your current carrier will have to unlock it at that time for you. Let me know if you have any other questions.


Kind regards,
