[Phones] Phone Financing and Instalment Plans

A number of people have asked us over the years when we'll offer phone financing, for customers who wish to pay for a higher-end phone in instalments. The answer is: Right now!

When you checkout with a new phone, you can select the option for financing, like this:

The financing is managed through Affirm, a third-party financial service.

You can find out more on the Phone Financing FAQ on this very page.

    Hi Val,

    Only phones over $100 are eligible for financing. If you had been considering a device at a lower price point, the financing option would not be available.

    Hey there! We don't perform credit checks through our own service if you buy a phone outright, however, we have no control over any checks that Affirm may complete for their financing eligibility.

    Hey Ebony! We do state that financing is only available for free users here.

    I do apologize for this inconvenience, and we are looking into viable options for offering it to our wireless customers!

    Hey Stephanie! I'm afraid that we don't have an ETA yet of when our service will be available in Canada.

    Hey Erika! I'm afraid that those are the only promotions/discounts that we can currently provide.

    Don't get a high end phone with these crooks.I went to upgrade my service to the unlimited plan 4 days before my text and talk plan service ended. Asked if I wanted to start the service now ,I said yes was charged 30 bucks and my service still ends in 4 days.I got to pay another 39.99 in 4 days..I called them and asked them to charge me the 9.99 and give me a full service as what i purchased.They said they cant do that.

    Hey Kenny! So it just looks like there was some confusion on the upgrading.

    I sent an email to you with a breakdown of all the charges that have gone through, so as to clear up your account!
