I'm currently looking at upgrading my phone to a Samsung Galaxy S9+, by having a Pay Monthly $30 Carryover Plan and paying it off Interest Free via either a 12 Month or a 24Month Contract. When I get to the Cart (after adding the plan to my cart), it informs me that You can get a phone interest free on this plan, however when I go to the Samsung S9 or S9+ Page, it only offers it to me if i want a Monthly Plan of the below, with no option of the $30 Plan.



When I go to add it to my cart, the $30 Plan disappears and I can only choose from the selection of Plans in that screenshot.


Regardless of what i choose as the Initial Cost, the options remain the same.


Are Interest-Free Phones (with Pay Monthly) only available for the $40, $55, $70 & $129 Pay Monthly Plans???


Also (a Side Note), I see that $55 Pay Monthly Plan is repeated twice on that Screen.


Thanks in Advance

I'm 99% sure that Interest Free is only available on $40+ plans, as I actually tried to downgrade my plan while I was overseas for a couple of months and was told I couldn't (as I had an Interest Free handset in action).

Only cheaper phones (less than $250 I think) are available on the $30 plan, and then only on 12 or 24 month terms. I see you can get the Samsung J2 on the $30 plan.
