    You’ll be prompted to set up NumberShare when you first pair your smartwatch with your smartphone. If you decide not to set it up right away, you can always return to it later.

  12. I’ve changed the phone number on my smartphone that’s paired with my smartwatch and NumberShare has stopped working. What do I do?
    Your Smartwatch plan must be reactivated. In most cases, it takes less than a minute. To do so, please follow these steps:

REGARDING: “Requires an eligible rate plan with our Advanced Payment/Buyback Option.”

As soon as your monthly payments end (but before YOUR CONTRACT END DATE) you will face one FINAL PAYMENT, the residual value or Advanced Payment set-up for your Device on your contract start date, plus taxes.

You must make a decision. It will depend partly on the condition of your device. It will also depend on if you would prefer to continue with the current arrangement with that device or if you want to start another 2 year term with a new device.

YOU MUST MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING BEFORE THE CONTRACT END DATE. All conditions are outlined in the Advanced Payment/Buyback Option Agreement.

You can:

  1. Pay the Advanced Payment Amount IN FULL (plus the financed taxes on this amount). At this point the contract is complete and your monthly payments will only be the amount of your service rate plan.
  2. Continue to make the device payment until the Advanced Payment amount is repaid in full. We will not charge interest on this amount unless you default on the payments.
  3. Come in to one of our office locations BEFORE the end of your term and ask a Cell Specialist to asses your device. If the Device is in good working condition, based on the factors outline on your Advanced Payment/Buyback Option Agreement, (also listed below) Hay will BUYBACK the Device for the full amount or an amount agreed on based on the condition of the Device, or we will not agree to Buyback the Device. At this point you must choose from Option 1 or 2.

The phone must be able to turn on and meet the following criteria:

  • The phone must navigate properly to its home screen.
  • The keyboard and/or touchscreen must be responsive and function properly.

Tips to reduce data Charges:

Turn off data roaming and use Wi-Fi instead of mobile data for email, we browsing and other data services. Please note that Wi-Fi may not always work as a substitute for data roaming. Your smartphone may switch to a mobile network if the Wi-Fi signal is weak or if you leave the Wi-Fi coverage area, thus incurring data roaming charges. Ensure data roaming is disabled if you want to use Wi-Fi only.

Turn off the phone’s ability to fetch new data in applications such as email or social networking. Note that with these setting, you will have to manually check email and sync contacts and calendars. Data will no longer be pushed to your phone automatically. When you check these features, be sure you are on Wi-Fi only or data charges may apply.

Consult your user guide for information on how to change data and Wi-Fi settings on your smartphone.

Be sure to install the latest operating system to your smartphone before you leave.

Use a roaming bundle to save on roaming costs.
