Mobile Lease plans (Go Mobile Swap) give you the flexibility to lease the latest eligible phones after they are released. Instead of purchasing your phone from us over a 24-month plan, you can now lease your phone with a Device Leasing Contract. You can upgrade your phone at any time after the first 12 months, provided your return it in good working order, pay the upgrade fee and take up a new eligible 24-month phone and service plan.
If you decide to take up our Mobile Swap Assure service for an extra $10 per month, you will have the ability to upgrade and replace your phone at any time regardless of the phone condition or damage, even if it’s within the first 12 months provided you pay the upgrade fee and take up a new eligible 24 month phone and service plan. You may only upgrade your device (maximum of two times within each 12-month period of your service plan.
