Xfinity Rolls Out BYOD Program for Select iPhones

Posted by at 10:43 am on January 18, 2018

Xfinity Mobile today said customers can now use their old iPhones on its service.

The company introduced a bring-your-own-device program for select, unlocked iPhones. Xfinity Internet subscribers can bring their unlocked iPhone to an Xfinity Mobile store to have it activated on the mobile network. Xfinity says incompatible devices may be traded in for a gift card that can help defray the cost of upgrading to a new device.

Xfinity Mobile, run by Comcast, will be able to accept BYOD phones from more manufacturers later this year. Xfinity offers two basic plan, by the gigabyte or unlimited. The former costs $12 per 1 GB of data, which is shared across all lines. The latter costs $45 per month per line for up to 20 GB of high-speed service. Xfinity Mobile does not charge per-line access fees. Taxes and fees are included in the pricing. Xfinity operates on Verizon’s network, but offloads data traffic to Comcast-owned WiFi hotspots when they are available.

Xfinity claims it has 18 million such hotspots positioned around the country.
