T-mobile leasing an iPhone... how does it show up on bill?

0 Deal Score

I'm considering leasing a phone via T-mobile and was wondering if anyone could share a snip of what a monthly bill with a device lease may look like?

Does the bill have specific details such as the device name ("iPhone X 256gb") or serial number or do they do a very generic line item on the monthly bill?

I ask because my employer who pays for my normal line of service may let me expense the additional charge depending on how it is invoiced every month (silly accounting dept and their rules). Anyone willing to PM/DM me a snapshot to see what it may look like?

Thanks!

It shows up as an Equipment Installation Plan (EIP) for a charge of $29.99-$31.99/mo depending on the model of iPhone(e.g.the cost of the device). It's not a lease, it's a payment plan to purchase. You'll always own your device once in hand.

Could you help validate if the line item is specific or not, are you saying it shows as #1 or #2 below?

1) "Equipment Installation Plan $30.00" line item

2) "Apple iPhone X - Equipment Installation Plan $30.00" line item

thanks that helps. I think they only need my summary bill and not the detailed one.

Summary bill just says equipment without the specific model, color, mem size I am guessing?
