Additionally, customers who trade in a qualified device will receive $200 guaranteed, for a potential value of up to $450 when purchasing a Samsung smartphone. Pre-registration for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on Xfinity Mobile begins February 26 here. Pre-order begins March 2, and the devices officially go on sale in Xfinity Stores and at XfinityMobile.com on March 16.
“Just as the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were built for the new era of visual communications, Xfinity Mobile was designed for today’s modern mobile consumer to be easy-to-use and to add value by simplifying entertainment and connectivity both in and out of the home,” said Billy Stephens, vice president of wireless devices for Xfinity Mobile. “When paired with the best 4G LTE and more than 19 million Wi-Fi hotspots, the latest Galaxy devices deliver the powerful experience that today’s mobile user demands.”
Made for the way consumers increasingly communicate and express with images, videos and emojis, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ drive innovation with Samsung’s most advanced camera ever. These experiences are made even better when shared with the world using Xfinity Mobile, the network that offers more Wi-Fi hotspots than any other provider. Xfinity Mobile customers who also subscribe to Xfinity TV can enjoy more than 200 live TV channels, 75,000 On Demand movies and shows, and their cloud DVR programs using the phone’s premium stereo speakers tuned by AKG and edge-to-edge Infinity Display*. In addition, with Xfinity xFi, customers can control their IoT (Internet of Things) devices connected to their xFi Advanced Gateway through the simple and intuitive xFi app interface.
Xfinity Mobile is available to all Xfinity Internet customers, and includes up to five lines of unlimited nationwide talk and text, no line access fees, and 100 MB of shared data. Customers can choose from two straightforward data options – “By the Gig” for $12 per GB of shared data across all lines on their account, or Unlimited for $45 per month per line (cellular speeds reduced after 20 GB of cellular data consumed).
Unlike other providers, Xfinity Mobile gives customers the flexibility to mix-and-match data plans per user on an account so they don’t have to subscribe to multiple unlimited lines to get a good price. Instead, they can switch any line on an account between data plans, at any time during their billing cycle. These features, plus the ability to access millions of Xfinity WiFi hotspots for free, are helping most Xfinity Mobile customers save up to 35 percent on their wireless bills.
