Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the Equipment Installment Plan program?
The Equipment Installment Plan program offers well-qualified buyers the opportunity to purchase a smartphone, tablet, or feature phone for $0 down, dividing the regular price of the eligible device into low monthly installment payments. With an Equipment Installment Plan, tax is due at the time of sale, but there are no finance fees required.
For well-qualified buyers, the options are:
Equipment Installment Plan with 36-month payment term: Divided into 36 installments.
Equipment Installment Plan with 24-month payment term: Divided into 24 installments.
For qualified buyers, another option is:
Equipment Installment Plan with down payment: 30% of the device cost down, with the remainder divided into 24 or 36 installments.
- Will I be required to pay a lump sum up front to purchase a smartphone or other eligible device with an Equipment Installment Plan?
Some buyers will qualify only for an Equipment Installment Plan with a 30% down payment. Not all buyers will qualify for any Equipment Installment Plan option.
- Is a contract required with an Equipment Installment Plan?
The Equipment Installment Plan program requires that you sign an installment agreement to pay for the smartphone, tablet, or feature phone in monthly installment payments. If you cancel your wireless service for that Corporate Responsibility User device, the remaining unpaid balance on the device is due. Also, you must be a qualified business or government customer to take advantage of the Equipment Installment Plan program for your Corporate Responsibility User lines of service, which means a qualified wireless service agreement is required for the wireless service (for example, voice and data for smartphones).
- Do I own the equipment? Or is this a leasing offer?
The equipment is yours, and you're responsible for the monthly installment payments. You're also responsible for any loss, theft, or damage to the equipment—both during the installment agreement period and afterward. We recommend you purchase the optional Mobile Insurance to protect your investment.
- Can I upgrade my Equipment Installment Plan smartphone or other eligible equipment earlier than 24 or 36 months?
Yes, you can upgrade earlier, but the full outstanding balance will be due immediately. After you have been billed and made two monthly installment payments (as long as your account is in good standing), you are eligible to take advantage of our Pay to Upgrade early option.
To reach early upgrade status, you need to pay your remaining installments in one lump sum. For the Equipment Installment Plan with 36-month payment term, you need to pay a lump sum amount that completes 36 installment payments. For the Equipment Installment Plan with 24-month payment term, you need to pay a lump sum amount that completes 24 installment payments.
- Will I be able to pay off this Equipment Installment Plan equipment early?
Yes, you always have the option to pay off your installment agreement early, but the full outstanding balance is due in one lump sum.
- What payments are due if I cancel the wireless service associated with an Equipment Installment Plan?
With the Equipment Installment Plan program, you can pay off your installment payments in full at any time. If you want to cancel your Corporate Responsibility User's wireless service with AT&T, the full outstanding balance on your associated installment agreement becomes due immediately.
