    I doubt they'll lower prices, but I can see them offering a more competitive mid-tier price. Maybe even offer discounts on other Xfinity services to offset the cost. Something like add a higher cable package for extra monthly data. Perhaps in the future they'll zero-rate on-demand.

    "When you return a phone—instead of exchanging it—after it's been activated, it will automatically cancel the line associated with that phone. This means the number will be lost. If the phone has not been activated, no line is associated with it, so no worries on losing a number."

    I suppose if you manage to activate on a non-Xfinity phone, you could presumably keep your line active.

    What's the point of a one month promo rate? As a bonus, I'd expect BYOD to appear only after July so you'd have to pay $65 for BYOD if Comcast doesn't make $45 the permanent rate. Lousy deal imo.

    Sorry I didn't put enough information in that post. If you move to Xfinity Mobile on the Unlimited plan before July 31, you can keep the $45/month plan for 24 months. After 24 months the rate changes to the full Unlimited Plan cost, whatever Comcast is charging in 2 years.

    So, per one of the previous posts, if I activate an iPhone in the PPU plan, I can call and get it unlocked pretty much immediately? Be nice to sim swap.

    I have Xfinity broadband and TV at home. I understand at this point Xfinity doesn't support VoLTE. Looks like Xfinity charges $12 per Gigabyte for data under one plan. Now if I am at home using my phone over WiFi for data that I pay Xfinity for broadband would I also get charged in that case under Xfinity phone data Plan? The scary part is Xfinity has WiFi that I can see at home on my phone's WiFi Analyzer App. I sure wouldn't want to get double charged at home for data by Xfinity if it came from my home broadband or their WiFi that is showing in my house as the Xfinity Network.

    Ok, that's better. Thanks.

    Their not doing BYOD due to "support issues" makes no sense in the case of BYOD for a phone already on their list (like an iPhone). I assume it's just a way to force a profitable phone sale.

    One thing that's unclear is how you tweak features like VOLTE, since the Verizon app presumably wouldn't work.

    You don't need an app for VoLTE on any carrier

    I recall having to use the Verizon app to turn on VoLTE for my line. Of course the app was unnecessary to actually use VoLTE once enabled.

    That might be device specific, I phones there is an option in menu as long as the carrier supports it

    VoLTE is a line feature called HD Voice on verizon. IDK if iphones have the power to add it themselves.

    I talked to a support agent via chat about when BYOD might be available. This chat guy tried seriously telling me that Xfinity devices work differently and a normal carrier phone, even unlocked, won't work on their service because of it -- including the iPhone. I was tempted to take issue with his answer but decided it wasn't worth my time. I'm sorry, Apple doesn't change the stock iPhone for any carrier, there is no way Comcast got a special software build and that a normal Verizon iPhone won't work on the service.

    I know my phone would work since I currently use Verizon Prepaid, but not if Comcast locks the sim to the phone you're forced to buy from them.

    The phone is locked, not the sim. Sim can be put in any unlocked device
