Hi. Is there a tax fee that iphone 6s buyers still need to pay when they transition to jump on demand? Any helpful response would be great! Thanks.

Okay. If I do the trade in for $5 payments a month, then it's actually that price in addition to my monthly data plan right?
The $5 trade in is just a credit every month toward your total bull. The credits show up as negative values. Three of our lines have $7 monthly credits, so our bill reads -$7 thre times for s total of $-21 and then the rest of the bill follows.

Monthly payment of the phone would be $5 right? (Keeping tax in mind)

I see. I thought you were saying you had a $5 trade in CREDIT. For this they'd calculate the monthly cost of the phone and credit you the difference to make the net cost $5. This may be a different value for everyone depending on local sales tax.

Example: the phone ends up costing $17.95 per month.

You see a bill credit of $-12.95 every month

Phone still comes up as $17.95 but net cost to you is $5.

They also tend to apply credits a few days before a new bill hits. My bill hits in the 10th of the month. Around the 5-7th my bill reads $-21 for the three phone credit promo.

I'll add that any credits you're supposed to get, make sure you have a clear understanding walking outbthendoornwhat your monthly bill will be. My credits and a lot of other things were messed up for about four months. They fixed it but it took a lot of diligence on my part.

That makes sense. Thank you!
