One obligation you owe your current carrier after you transfer or port out your number is to pay off any outstanding bill. That includes outstanding monthly bills, early termination fees (if you terminate an existing contract), and the balance on phone installment payments.
If you have such outstanding payments, one of the criteria you need when choosing a new carrier will help clear off these bills.
That is, pay off your remaining contract (if you had one with your current carrier) to avoid an early termination fee, and pay off your device.
Thankfully, several carriers are willing to pay off or pay some of your outstanding contract and phone installments when you switch to their network.
In a nutshell, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon will help you pay off your phone payment to switch to their network. Some other smaller Mobile Virtual Networks also offer some deals or incentives to you when you port to their network.
This post breaks down a list of Companies that will pay off your phone when you switch to their networks. Also, you will learn how to take advantage of these deals and also other deals available to you from smaller Companies.
What Company Will Pay Off My Phone If I Switch?
When you port your number to the Verizon network, the network will cover a part of your early termination fees from your previous carrier. The network will front you $500 in credit to pay off the early termination fees if you have any.
In addition, you will receive an extra $200 signup bonus for switching to the network. Also, Verizon has other deals available to make your switch worth it. For instance, a discount of up to $1,000 (depending on the device) if you trade in your current device and option for a new device from Verizon.
Check this post on deals available when you switch to the Verizon network.
You will receive up to $500 from AT&T when you port your number to the network and bring your device. Also, you will receive a $250 credit for each device you plan. In addition, other deals are available for new customers, such as free devices when you trade in your existing device.
Similar to other networks above, T- Mobile offers up to $350 upfront credit to help pay your termination fees when you move to the network. Also, you will get $650 per line to cover payment for device installments.
In addition, if you trade in your current device, the network will issue your trade-in credits, coupled with up to $1,000 credit on a virtual prepaid MasterCard when you bring your phone to the network.
