Equipment Installment Plan (EIP)

Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) is a payment option that establishes an Equipment Credit Line (ECL) for qualified new and existing customers. The ECL can be used to purchase equipment and accessories and pay for them in interest-free installments. Qualified customers can initiate EIP over 4 or 20 installments, based on rate plan selection:

  • Even More rate plans support a 4-installment EIP.
  • Even More Plus rate plans support a 20-installment EIP.

 

 

Restrictions

  • EIP is not available to T-Mobile Prepaid customers or customers who do not wish to have their credit run.
  • Minimum purchase is $19.99.
  • Due to state regulations, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, West Virginia, and Wyoming do not allow putting purchases on a 20-installment EIP if you have existing Premium Handset Protection insurance or bundled features on your account.
