XM Plans (https://www.xfinity.com/mobile/plan)
* No line access fees on up to 5 lines
* Unlimited Verizon nationwide talk and text
* Unlimited: $45 PER LINE, no sharing
* By the gig (pay-as-you-go) plan: SHARED by all lines. Under 100MB: FREE; Otherwise, $12/GB
* There is no contract, you will pay monthly taxes and fees which vary by location...usually $2-3 but in areas like City and County of San Francisco, California - $5.21

Devices:
*XM is a Verizon MVNO, most XM devices are LOCKED to XM. See below for unlock policy.
*XM & Verizon does not tied SIM card and phone together. (Sprint ties them together).
*This means, with XM, you are free to move the XM SIM card to any compatible devices, including VZW post-paid phones (VZW prepaid phone has to be unlocked).
* Make sure that when you use a non-XFinity Mobile branded device that in order for data to work, to set the APN to:
COMCAST.RSLR.VZWENTP
If you've activated but your iPhone's not working, confirm that you see "XFINITY Mobile" on the top left of the home screen.
Connect to a WiFi network
Go to Settings > General > About
Wait for the Carrier Settings Update prompt to appear, then select "Update" which will
get your data working.
For those with iPhone's who are unable to change/edit your APN, goto http://www.unlockit.co.nz/unlockit and even though XFinity Mobile is not on the list, just pick Verizon Wireless which will make the APN visible so you can manually edit it.
* The latest and current PRL (Preferred Roaming List) as of October 16, 2017 is 15533.
If you have a older version, you will need to power off phone, remove SIM from phone and power on phone so it boots up. After booting up, you will need to power off phone, insert SIM in phone and power on. You can check the PRL version by going to Settings -> About phone -> Status. The PRL is what controls what cell towers you can and cannot connect
to including the 1xRTT/3G/4G LTE networks. This is a better explanation of what a PRL is:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre...aming_List
* Hint: Buy $1 LG X Charge, unlocked LG X Charge first. and then move XM sim to an iPhone/Pixel/etc.

Port-in:
As of September 1, 2017 - You can order the phone with a new number and activate while still being able to port your number from another carrier. To do so you'll need to call XFinity
Mobile Team at 888-936-4968 so their mobile team can assist with your number change/porting request. This information was posted by ComcastMax in official capacity in the following thread and also verified by XFinity Mobile on Facebook:
http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Xfin...-p/2923846

LG X Charge for $1:
*Exclusive XM SKU
5.5" 720p Screen
2 GB RAM
Large 4,500 mAh battery
Bluetooth 4.2
Wi-Fi 2.4Ghz/5G Dual Band !!
Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 !!
Snapdragon 425 CPU
Android 7.0 (Nougat)
Internal Storage of 16 GB (9.43 GB usable)
microSD slot up to 2TB
* LG X Charge comes SIM LOCKED to XM. Asking me for Sim Unlock Pin using a t-mobile sim and my VZW sim
* AFTER you request unlock, it can partially support AT&T & T-Mobile (missing some bands).
* AFTER you request unlock, it WILL NOT support Sprint, as all Sprint devices have to be whitelisted and even if it was whitelisted, it is missing 4G LTE bands 25, 26, 41 so all you will get is 3G.

UNLOCK INFO
Attention: Make sure you put your XM SIM into the phone you want unlocked, turn the phone on and allow it to register on the network as they can only provide the unlock code for the most recent registered device.
If you received a 16-digit unlock code for the LG X Charge and it doesn't work, try entering the first 8-digits.

https://www.xfinity.com/mobile/su...k-my-phone

If you need to unlock your phone so that you can switch out your SIM card, it's no problem. There are just a few requirements to be aware of.
Criteria for unlocking your phone
Make sure the following things are true:
The phone must be an XFINITY Mobile device.
The phone must not be reported lost, stolen, or involved with fraudulent activity.
The phone cannot be active on another XFINITY Mobile customer's account.
Your XFINITY Mobile Account must be in good standing. One exception is if you are an active member of the military—regardless of account standing, all active-duty military personnel are eligible to have their phones unlocked.
If you're on a Device Payment Plan...
In addition to the criteria mentioned above, if you're paying for your phone on a Device Payment Plan and you have an active account with XFINITY Mobile, the phone you want to unlock must belong to a current XFINITY Mobile or Comcast customer. Your account must be in good standing as well.
If you're paying for your phone on a Device Payment Plan but your account with XFINITY Mobile is inactive, the account must still be in good standing. Also, the primary account holder must be able to authenticate the disconnected account before the phone is eligible for unlocking.
NOTE: After your phone is unlocked, you are still responsible for making all the remaining payments on your Device Payment Plan.

Be careful if you plan to order cheap LG phone and use the SIM card in your Verizon iPhone 6S/7. No one I have seen, has been able to get Visual Voicemail to work with the XM SIM on apple devices as of this month. If anyone knows different please add to wiki. Also, if you do this, there is no WiFi Calling and no personal hotspot.

100MB of free data is shared between all the lines in an account.

The default apps on the LG X Charge which is the standard for all Android devices is:
XFINITY MOBILE https://play.google.com/store/app....myaccount
XFinty Mobile Voice Mail https://play.google.com/store/app...vvm.client
even though the setup will allow you to install the following as optional:
Pocket Geek https://play.google.com/store/app...ek.android
XFinity Stream TV https://play.google.com/store/app...y.cloudtvr
XFinity MyAccount https://play.google.com/store/app...vs.android

To get Xfinity WiFi working on a non-Xfinity Mobile branded device to get free unlimited WiFi when needed, all you need to do is install the XFINITY WiFi Hotspots app:
https://play.google.com/store/app...omcast.hsf

There is also a free Google 100GB storage for 2 years, just open the Google Drive app on the LG X Charge and it will show the offer. The Xfinity Mobile SIM card MUST BE in the phone for the promo to appear. After the promo is activated then you will have the 100GB of storage on the account, no matter what device you log into. I would recommend just factory restoring the phone and restarting with the SIM installed if you are not seeing the promo appear.

ROOTING INFO
The Xfinity Mobile version just like the Verizon version of a given make/model of phone has a locked bootloader and like many other Verizon phones, likely will never receive OEM unlock for it (needed for rooting). However a couple of useful features that most people need rooting for can be done without rooting:

1. DNS66 Adblocker:
https://github.com/julian-klode/dns66

2. Autohide (& show) the bottom Navbar for full screen immersive mode in all apps
https://forum.xda-developers.com/...p-t3509747

New software update(s):
October 26, 2017 - New android update for the LG X Charge vM322V10k
December 19, 2017 - Android security patch (November 1, 2017 patch level)

Just got off the phone with the Rep every xfinity customer has a "preapproved" line limit on their account. The pre-approved line limit is based off your payment history and any credit records xfinity has, You can only buy the amount of phones without a credit check based on your pre-approved line limit. You can call and ask them what your limit is and they will tell you, if you want to know before you place your order how many you can get without a credit check.

there are some excellent deals - S8 for $532, iphone 7 for 450, 6s for 250.

are these unlocked though?

edit: looks like they're locked, and at least one month of active service with comcast is required to request unlock.

Can we buy the phone without activating? I see that it says that phone can be bought by xfinity customers only. But does it also force to activate a plan on purchasing the phone?

Nah looks like you either gotta transfer a number or they'll issue you one.

For example, can buy a Iphone 6 for $250, keep on service for 1-month at $12, request unlock, and cancel. Pay around $275 or so for an unlocked Iphone with 2 months of basic service.

Correct?

$12 is if you go past 100mb in usage. staying below that, service should be free as per t&c. looks like it's 250 plus tax for 6S in that case.

$3/month to cover taxes and fees and they give you 100MB of Data a month as well, Calling and Texting is free.

If you stick to Wifi that is a insanely good deal.
