PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comcast is opening its Xfinity Stores nationwide at 8:00 a.m. local time on September 22 in all of its markets to enable consumers to purchase the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Xfinity Internet customers who activate a new Xfinity Mobile line in stores can get the next generation iPhone from Apple, and also trade in their qualifying devices and receive a check for the value of that device within 30 days.
iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are a new generation of iPhone featuring a new glass and aluminum design in three beautiful finishes – space gray, silver, and a new gold – and made with the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, Retina HD displays, A11 Bionic chip and is designed for the ultimate augmented experience. The world’s most popular camera gets even better and wireless charging brings a powerful new capability to iPhone. iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth of field effect in five different lighting styles.
Xfinity Mobile, which recently completed a full-scale nationwide rollout in all of its service areas, combines the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network with the largest Wi-Fi network of more than 18 million hotspots across the country. It’s available to all Xfinity Internet customers, and includes up to five lines with unlimited nationwide talk and text, no line access fees, and 100 MB of shared data.
Xfinity Mobile customers can choose from two straightforward data options – “By the Gig” for $12 per GB of shared data across all lines on their account per month, or Unlimited for $45 per month, per line. With Xfinity Mobile, customers only pay for the data they use. When paying by the gigabyte, they can “switch and save” by changing to Unlimited anytime during their billing cycle. They can also “mix and match” By the Gig and Unlimited on an account so each individual has a data option that makes sense for them.
Combining wireless service with Comcast’s other Xfinity experiences creates a simpler solution for internet and entertainment inside and out of the home. By auto-connecting to the customer’s home Wi-Fi, the service takes the friction out of connecting to Wi-Fi. Plus, when using Xfinity Mobile, customers are already signed into their other Xfinity apps – whether it’s watching up to 200 live TV channels and 40,000 On Demand movies and shows with the Xfinity Stream app, or controlling your home devices from the road with the Xfinity Home app.
