To give you a clear understanding of your monthly charges, we'll provide you with an estimated monthly bill before you check out.

How will I know when my service charges will start?
Your billing cycle starts the moment you activate your device, or seven days after device shipment — whichever comes first. Your card will automatically be charged 20 days after your billing cycle ends. You can also make a one-time payment after your billing cycle ends but before your card is automatically charged.

Here’s a sample of a billing timeline:

  • December 6: Device ships
  • December 13 (seven days later): Billing cycle begins
  • January12: Billing cycle ends
  • February 2 (20 days after your billing cycle ends): Payment is due
