You have perfect timing! As of June 6, 2019, customers can now use an eSIM when activating a subsidized device in one of thepilot stores. Previously, eSIM was only available on Bring your own device plans. These stores can now do all transactions such as SIM swaps, eSIM to physical SIM and vice versa on subsidy and BYOD customers.
It means you don’t have to pay the full price of your device right away. The cost is paid off over 24 months. The amount still owing on your device during that 24-month period is your FLEXtab (subsidy) device balance.
For example, if your device cost is $749.99 and the upfront cost is $99.99, that means your FLEXtab (subsidy) would be $650.
