I bought an iPhone 6 with the $1 a year plan. It arrives on Monday (in three days). My current plan requires next months $35 payment today. If I allow my current plan to lapse will I still be able to activate my iPhone on Monday? Do I need to pay $35 for three days service just to keep my account active? I don't care if my phone deosn't work for three days I just want to make sure I can activate on Monday and get the $1 a year plan.
Most definitely! You can activate your device by Monday. Remember, that if you purchase the device before, or by 07/31/2017 you've 30 days to take advantage of 12 months promotion for $1. Now, you do not have to pay for your current plan, you can wait until you activate the device to make any payments on the account.
