my contract runs out in jan, do I automacily go month to month? Is there any disadvantage to going month to month instead of having a contract?

Anyway, last i check, after 10 months, I get a small discount on a new phone from SunCom? Is that, 10 months within a contract? or does month to month count?

Basically, if I plan on staying with suncom, is there any advantage to having a contract? thanks!!

From what I know, the way it works is you can run out time on their contract (20 months out of 24 months) to qualify for an upgrade at the 2 year price. Same thing works with the 1 year upgrade price (more expensive).

But there aren't really any benefits to having a contract, honestly, there are more disadvantages than advantages. No need to worry about any ETF fees (Early contract termination fee) which are usually $200 / line for SunCom phones.

Good luck

And if you want to lock in, you might as well take a discount on a new phone.

However, if you are on any other set of plans from SunCom, don't go back in contract. Buy a phone straight out and stay with them as long as you care to. There is no reason to be in contract when there are comparable pl...
