Unlock Requests
http://www.xfinity.com/support/ar...ck-request

The $150 the OP is referring to is a discounted price on the 256GB iPhone.

For example if you go to the site, the 64GB and the 256GB shows the same price, hence the $150 discount.

64GB = 699.99
256GB = 699.99 (normally 849.99)

Not sure if this would help, but for those that didn't get the rebate. When you add the order to your cart, the following is shown. Take a screenshot for your paperwork.

$300 prepaid card
Keep an eye on your inbox for the full details and conditions — you'll get a separate email within one week.



This is VERY important info for people thinking about porting in a number that they don't intend to use with the new phone. (see below)
All of these phones are a great deal AFTER rebate. Without the rebate the deal is a rip off.

Quote from TrentSteel
:
Probably not. Doing this negated my rebate last year. I'm pretty sure the IMEI on your account has to match the IMEI of your original phone for the duration of the rebate period. See my response below.

I took the XM SIM out of my LG X Charge and put it in an unlocked Verizon phone just to see if it would work. It did, but it permanently changed the IMEI in my XM account. I spent a long time working with customer service to get it fixed, but it still showed the wrong IMEI in my account, even after I put the SIM back in the original phone. In fact, one year later it still incorrectly shows the IMEI of the phone that I literally used for two minutes one year ago.

Because the IMEI of my original phone did not match the IMEI on my account, I did not get the rebate.

Also, because the account IMEI did not match my phone, they were unable to unlock my phone. I had to purchase a code on eBay. This would be an even bigger problem for an iPhone, since they are significantly more difficult to unlock. In that case you may be completely unable to unlock it even if you're technically eligible.

I believe they set it up this way on purpose to force you to stay on their network. But they should do a better job of warning you rather than just inserting a little blurb into the promo language.

Because of the risks involved I would recommend waiting until after you unlock your phone and get your rebate before swapping SIMs.

Porting from GV, my experience:
Porting via online: www.xfinitymobile.com/activate

Account Holder's First Name = Your Google account First Name
Account Holder's Last Name = Your Google account Last Name
Account Number = GV number without any dashes/symbols ie.4151234567
Billing Pin = GV Voice Pin
Last 4 SSN = 0000 (required field, will not let you continue if empty)
Billing Address 1 = Your Xfinity account address (required field, will not let you continue if empty)
Billing Address 2 = Your Xfinity account address (required field, will not let you continue if empty)
City, State, ZIP = Your Xfinity account address (required field, will not let you continue if empty)

Somebody had mentioned you can put in Google's address. To my knowledge, this is not even needed for a GV port. This may be required for other types of ports. I have ported over to Sprint and Xfinity via live person and they never asked for this info. This info is required online at the Xfinity port-in page to allow you to continue.

To pay for GV phone number unlock and check status:
https://www.google.com/voice/unlock

Update GV voicemail pin
Must do this from computer or mobile browser that allows Desktop style (ie. Chrome)
1. Go to voice.google.com and log into account if not already.
2. Click the Menu button on the left side and select Legacy Google voice.
3. Click the gear button and select Settings.
4. Click Voicemail and Text
5. Update pin and save changes.

Both of my phones activated in about a day and half. This was business days. Good luck!

Requires a new line of service on the account. You can't just upgrade your phone.

You also won't get your $300 gift card until around end of November to mid-December.

May stack with existing promotion of $150 off on any iPhone when selecting 256GB model. (Price displayed is discounted price. Simply offering 256 GB model at same price as 64 GB The $150 off is an actual discount on the price of the phone at purchase time. You don't have to wait 4 or 5 months for that one.)

I currently have T-Mobile One with tons of discount. I have xifinity internet service. So I can buy the 256gb iPhone for 700, and not pay for any service if use less than 100mb, wait til I get $300, pay off phone and get it unlocked? Then cancel mobile plan without penalty? And I can do this for up to 5 lines?

I have to port some google voice number I guess cuz I want to keep my T-Mobile plan?

That is my understanding, yes.

And I did have stupid charge of like $3 or $4 when I initially activated the phone. I believe you may have to activate the phone in order to sell it later, and remember to unlock the phone once paid off
Don't forget the sales tax (if they have any where you live) on the full $700.

Not sure what your margins would be on reselling these either because people know how unlikely it is that any phone purchased on EBAY is successful for BYOD.

.I also have heard some never got their $300 gift cards. And it is hard to 'prove' since I don't believe you get any email notifications that you are enrolled in that promotion.

I bought and unsuccessfully tried activating three different iPhones on EBAY to port over to Xfinity as BYOD. Two were Xfinity mobiile phones (One the guy bought and paid off but never unlocked. One was lost/stolen.) One was AT&T unlocked. But thee were problems that had something to do with incompatability of CDMA vs GSM. I gave up and ended up just buying one from Xfinity.

(I lucked out though because I did it on phone with an agent since I was not familiar with the $150 discount on the 256GB models. She was thinking the phone should discount $150 and I told her it sound ed like the listed price was with discount. Anyway, got my son the iPhone 8 Plus 256GB at $800, but she pushed through a $150 credit on the account, and it only cost me $706 after tax. That was a great deal.)

Thanks for the detailed information. What was that $150 credit for?

For someone who went from Verizon to Xfinity, I highly recommend the switch if you are looking for unlimited data and don't have enough family members (4+ people) to get on Verizon's $40 per line. You feel like you are still using Verizon since Xfinity uses Verizon's towers - no issues with dropped calls and the data speeds are amazing!

Where is the stackable promo? I don't seem to be able to find that one. It shows an extra 150 for the 256gb variant.

There is no promo code, if thats what you are looking for. Its just the discounted price on the 256gb. Currently I only see iP8 that has a discounted price on the 256gb.

My wife did this. She uses data from Wi-Fi mostly so monthly bill is ~$16 plus the 0% iPhone payment. She loves it. Never used more than 1 gb yet.
No need for unlimited plan for most people

most people just do by the gig with xfinity. People like me are always on wifi so data isn't a concern. Especially if you have a music service that lets you download the songs to your phone. You get charged some random taxes that very by state but if you stay under 1Gb you only end up paying like $16/mnth for unlimited talk/text. I use most of my xfinity lines for my kids and just have it turn the data off after 90Mb.

I have the exact same scenario as you and did just what you're thinking when they had the iPhone 7 Plus 256gb Project Red phone for $569. Once it's paid off you just call a number to get it unlocked. On this deal you would have to keep the service until you got the card but it's so cheap it won't break the bank. It's about the only way to get a cheap iPhone on T-Mobile as their deals absolutely suck.
